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

Daybook - June 12

Outside my window… sunshine, a breeze, flowers, cars parked at the neighbors’ houses.

I am thankful for… all those who came to our family cookout yesterday. For the boys to have a broader scope of “family” from that and our time in the City Thursday and Friday.

I am wearing… khaki cargo pants and multi-colored (plum, burnt orange and brown) shirt

Some plans for the rest of the week… soccer clinics, searching out some phonics stuff with 2nd grade team, first volunteer at the pet shop.

I am hoping … to find a relaxing summer routine while at the same time tackling some projects.

On my mind… wondering where my phone could possibly be

Hearing…. the air conditioner

I am praying for… M. at teen camp for the first time this week.

From the kitchen….. cookout yesterday and lots of salads – broccoli, pasta and macaroni – leftover in the fridge (thank you to fam)

Around the house… laundry, need I say more?

One of my favorite things…. researching on the Internet (that’s why I’m sad right now that ours in down)

From my picture journal…
The Internet is back up. However, my camera has seen better days. I'm waiting to get lots of pictures of late from Aunt's camera. This snapshot is from about six years ago (best I can tell). M. & L. were the joy of my Daddy's life. This photo is in honor of his birthday June 9. He would have been 78.

  1. I'm so sorry I didn't realize, when we saw you at the funeral home, that Thursday would have been your dad's 78th. I know what a difficult time you've had; particularly this past two (2) weeks.
    Please know how much concern I have for you each and every day, and that while 'His grace is sufficient for your needs', I keep you constantly in my prayers.
    Your dad looks so happy with his grandsons, and I know how much they love him still.
    Be blessed today, Annette. Have happy thoughts, and know that you are greatly loved.
    Your Father-in-law


Would love for you to share. Thanks for being a part of Our Ordinary Life.
