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 - February 4

A peek through my window…. Very cloudy and gray. I can’t complain though, our winter temperatures still are not very wintery.

What’s going on this week… Wed. night is a parent meeting for track. I think Hubby will go so I can still go to Bible study. Thursday night is the National Junior Honor Society induction. I was so happy for M. to have made it!

What “the boys” are doing… one is vacuuming right now! On another note, we think L. got a mild concussion in the scrimmage last weekend. Since we’ve done this rodeo before we were planning on waiting and watching, but his soccer coach urged us to go ahead and see the dr. So that’s where we are headed this afternoon.

On my mind… My kindergarten sub job ends two days earlier than the teacher had thought and my next long term job may start later (depending on when the teacher’s baby comes) so I am thinking of that “in between time”. I have enjoyed the consistency of knowing where I am going each day and being able to feel settled somewhere. I guess that will be ending shortly.

On my bedside table… I’ve read two fiction books and that must be a record for me of late! That must be why I haven’t blogged as much lately.

I am richly blessed… with another wonderful family evening last night. Since Hubby and I came back from Florida we have had family night each Friday (and Saturday really) night. Last night we sent almost two hours at a National Guard Armory and looking at Black Hawk helicopters. We especially enjoyed learning about and experiencing night vision. After our tour, the four of us went to a local place for dinner. I love local establishments.

I’m praying for… family.

Our home… will have a new picture hanging on the wall soon. When we go out this afternoon I am going to get a frame for the painting that Winter (the dolphin) did. We have a print of course.

Menu planning… I actually did this when I stayed home Tuesday with L! Tonight I am making wild rice soup and grilled ham and cheese. Friends are bringing pizza tomorrow night for the Super Bowl. One night this week we will have roast, potatoes and carrots and another night we’ll have spaghetti.
