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 - April 1

A peek through my window…. I just opened the blinds.  It’s sunny and windy.  The across the street neighbor’s gate is open.  I didn’t even know they had one on both sides of the house!

What’s going on this week… Family in town for Easter, a soccer game a couple of hours away, and M’s 13th birthday.

What “the boys” are doing… they are with Hubby painting at Aunt’s right now.  M is turning in his enrollment card this week for eight grade.  L. has a soccer game Tuesday night.  Both of them are going to stay home from school on Good Friday in order to spend time with their grandparents.

On my mind…  working online, but trying not to do it too quickly.  Continuing to watch over our boys, especially by what comes into our home.

On my bedside table… several things from the drawers of the table that I wanted to look at – things I’ve written.  I need to actually look and clean up.

I am richly blessed… to have Hubby by my side.

I’m praying for… a friend’s daughter, family situations

Our home… is comfortable and enjoyable to be in (even though it often smells like our dog – I’m trying to make it better and refuse the only way to completely cure it.)

Menu planning… Pork in the crockpot, chicken on the grill, burgers, out the night of soccer, Javanese dinner

A photo or two…
