Romans 12:1-2

So here's what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don't become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You'll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you. Romans 12:1-2

Mother's Day Daybook

Outside my window… freshly mowed lawn, new pillow on the rocking chair, the fountain is on.

I am thankful for…time spent with my family – in the hotel Friday night, Bible Competition, and fun lunch. I’m thankful for all L’s hard work and that M. participated in Relay for Life before meeting us Sat. with Aunt.

I am wearing… yucky mowing clothes. I didn’t get to mow though because the battery was dead.

Some plans for the rest of the week… a couple of school parties for M., lots of soccer practice and garage sale.

I am hoping … to not be hurting tomorrow. The time at the diner on Route 66 was fun yesterday. I really enjoyed my Dublin Dr. Pepper. However, being so sick today wasn’t worth the grease, the onion rings or cookie.

On my mind… L. did a great job in his Bible competition. I've also been thinking about Mom and Dad a lot this week.

Hearing…. M sitting behind me dictating what he thinks I should write.

I am praying for……. end of school year kinds of things.

From the kitchen….. I made some things from Make 5 Dinners in One Hour this week and have been quite pleased. Last night we had some leftover roast that I cooked in the crockpot with tomatoes, green chile and seasoning.

Around the house… the clothes that sat on the couch for almost a week finally got put away! I told Hubby that I was leaving the ones that are piled on the dryer there to absorb the squeaky noise that it’s making.

One of my favorite things…. My porch swing! My grandfather made it, it hung at my parent’s home for as long as I can remember, and now that Hubby and the boys repainted it, it’s on my back porch. What a wonderful Mother’s Day gift.
