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

On the Home Front - October 9

A peek through my window… M – 73 , T – 81 , W – 78, T – 77, F – 77. Outside now, besides dark is rain! So happy that it’s finally here. The front was reeking havoc with my sinuses and now maybe the rain will control the ragweed.

What’s going on this week… subbing four days, Taste of Home cooking show, working on Dad’s estate

What “the boys” are doing… football pictures, L will be running lots at practices because of the team loss today

On my mind… the ups and downs of hosting/leading a group and some upcoming family plans/decisions

On my bedside table… One Thousand Gifts – I reread it from time to time. “Country” magazine and a booklet about the second temple in Jerusalem. Honestly, my bedside table needs to be cleaned.

I am richly blessed… to have Hubby home and for him to be in the living room watching football with the boys – also in the midst of all he had to do to get ready to leave yesterday, he replaced my windshield wipers.

I’m praying for… Pastor Nadarkhani in Iran.

Our home… although laundry is somewhat done – we have a serious need for clothes folding and putting away. Clean clothes waiting to be folded are on the dining room table and the ones that are folded are either in baskets or on our dresser waiting to be put in the closet. To actually do it would just be too easy.

Menu planning… I have it written down – and it’s a really good thing I do because the only thing I can recall is tator tot casserole for tomorrow night!

A photo or two… I'm so proud of Hubby for finishing his first marathon (and with a great time!) He's the one in white holding the rose bush (Tyler Rose Marathon).
