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 4

A peek through my window…. It’s a beautiful spring day!  Hubby spent some time outside working on the yard and flowers.  It will be beautiful by summer!

What’s going on this week… Basket/bingo night at L’s school (possibly our last elementary school fundraiser) and Sat. is a Mother/Son activity at church.

What “the boys” are doing… They are out with Hubby.  I didn’t look to see what kind of ball they took along, but I think they were headed to a park.

On my mind…  Storms have been on my mind lately.  I have to be careful not to focus too greatly on them and to trust God.  I do have a website up on my computer showing storm shelters, but I’m not sure I can convince Hubby.  They are actually much more affordable than I thought they would be.

On my bedside table… Parenting is Heart Work.

I am richly blessed… to have had time at home with my family this weekend.

I’m praying for… a friend at church who is sharing Jesus with co-workers.

Our home… is ready for small group.  I still have lots of laundry to do, but that can wait and the laundry door can be shut.  When I’m home tomorrow, I’d really like to make some salsa and possibly try drying some fruit in Hubby’s new food dehydrator.  He made a batch of jerky and then went back for the one step up model.

Menu planning… chicken legs (not for me of course), hamburgers on the grill (once I buy more propane).

A photo or two…
