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 - Last One for 2011

A peek through my window…. Over 70 degrees on the last day of 2011! And I wasn’t home to enjoy it. It was too windy for much walking anyway.

What’s going on this week… The tree must come down, drama for L. (planned kind – one he is in at church), and I start subbing kinder.

What “the boys” are doing… M just decided to make buffalo something or other – I can hear pans in the kitchen. Levi played in two indoor soccer games today.

On my mind… End of the year/beginning of the year. I’ve read lots of great end of year blog posts and while I’ve had lots of great end of year thoughts, I haven’t wanted to write anything.

On my bedside table… Billy Graham Nearing Home is actually right here on my desk. I need to finish it so I can review it – planned to do it for the end of the year and it didn’t happen. I started The Prayer Life of Agnes Sparrow on my Hubby's kindle.

I am richly blessed… to have enjoyed Saturday with my family – grocery shopping, soccer games, dinner, the mall and watching Courageous. Glad Aunt was along (we walked at a park between games – I almost got blown off the path, literally).

I’m praying for… several health issues for friends (near, far, and bloggy friends). Also praying for friendships in general.

Our home… groceries need to be put away. Can wait til tomorrow when football will be on all. day. long.

Menu planning… Leftovers. I know that’s not a good Jan. 1 meal, but it’s quick after church on Sunday and frugal.  I'll make some vegetable soup on Monday and something else of course.

This is what Hubby and L did this morning.  The yellow plane is L's Scout leader.
