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 - December 17

A peek through my window…. I’ve already been out to do errands and it’s cold! The sun in shining though so the frost on the ground is gone and it looks beautiful out! S – 57 M – 48 T – 44 W – 46 Th – 50.

What’s going on this week… Last two days before Christmas break so school is going to be crazy! My last two days of subbing in fourth grade (2 ½ weeks – I sub in Kinder for 6 weeks after the break) . I am so excited though, I get to take Monday afternoon off to be at L’s Colonial Days. We’ll have the end of the week to finish up our family’s Christmas plans.

What “the boys” are doing… showering and probably bemoaning the fact that they have to do their Saturday chores BEFORE we leave for Toys for Tots.

M has not played his instrument for three weeks because of his headaches. This week he had to play for his semester test and he tied for first chair! That success has him reconsidering staying in band for next year. I hope he does.

On my mind… having to go to the Post Office before we got help at Toys for Tots. I was there about 8:30 this morning and they don’t open until 10 am on Saturday! That’s just crazy.

On my bedside table… I finished the Christmas novel on my Hubby's Kindle earlier this week. It was called O Little Town. It was written by one of the Stattler Brothers (old Country music group for those who might not know) – don’t have it right here and I can think of his name right now.

I am richly blessed… I completed 1000 on my list of 1000 Gifts!

I’m praying for… an unspoken request.

Our home… is extremely messy right now.

Menu planning… Nada. At some point this weekend we will eat the spicy pork that I made yesterday in the crockpot.
