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 - November 13

A peek through my window… It’s 73 degrees on Nov. 13. Enough said!

What’s going on this week… Soccer season ended yesterday – soccer practice continues this week. Toys for Tots registration starts this week and I plan to help on days I’m not working – I have a sub job for Wed. through Friday already.

What “the boys” are doing… M has a school math project due Wed. and L. has three nights of drama practice for a performance on Saturday.

On my mind… I agreed to coach a Bible competition for 4th – 6th graders and offer some guidance for memorization and “sword drill”. The CD is sitting right here on my desk and I need to get going on preparation because our first practice is in one week.

On my bedside table… New book – but I think I’m going to save it for the drive to Albuquerque to read.

I am richly blessed… I was so ecstatic to have cars from other states in my driveway and family around my table for dinner this weekend!

I’m praying for… a large number of people at church going through difficult times.

Our home… is not messy from company, but I hope to have time tomorrow to put it back “together”. I need to get a Christmas gift wrapped (so I’ll have to make a trip to the attic) and a baby gift sent off in the mail.

Menu planning… Leftovers, something chicken, sweet & spicy pork, cube steak & bumble bee (shell) mac n cheese (the staple Sunday dinner at my house growing up).

A photo or two…
