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 - March 25

A peek through my window…. It’s dark.  Our yard is trying to dry up from four straight days of rain.  As would be expected everything is greening up nicely from the rain though.

What’s going on this week… Family arriving from out of town for the weekend.

What “the boys” are doing… sleeping.  Big weekend for all.  L was happy to crawl into his own bed after camping two nights with Scouts.  M. is recovering from an infection.

On my mind…  Getting back to regular routine, keeping up with responsibilities, preparing for a month of birthday celebrations.

On my bedside table… the April/May issue of Country magazine.  I was reading it last night before falling asleep.

I am richly blessed… with a day of hard work with family prepping a house for painting and a good evening out with friends.  I’m blessed with a church family and corporate worship and with a small group for fellowship and looking at God’s Word together.

I’m praying for… a friend for adjustments in their family, life changes for other friends and growth in my family.

Our home… is on the rebound from a leaky roof and muddy floors.  Hubby planted a great amount of flowers right before our rain and they should be taking off nicely to give us plenty of summer color.  I’m so grateful to Hubby for taking care of the outside of our home in this way.

Menu planning… Dijon Chicken, leftovers, and Goulash

A photo or two…
