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 - September 8, 2012

A peek through my window…. we had a bad storm to get this way, but it is absolutely gorgeous outside!  It’s sunny and in the 70s!  Out the window – lots of kids are playing and I can hear Hubby in the garage working on a project.

What’s going on this week… Open House for me, M will have more tennis.  I’m thankful that a friend’s Mom is taking him home on the day I’m at school late.  What else is going on?  For us, I haven’t thought that far.  My niece may be born on Thursday!

What “the boys” are doing… one was making stuff out of paracord.  I think they were both helping Hubby.  L has been faithful to practice his new clarinet.  We’ll all be going to a special exhibit on George Washington tomorrow.

On my mind… my mind is too full!  Fitting everything in to my school schedule is at the front of my mind.

On my bedside table… I started (meaning I’ve read the first chapter) a new book – Into the Clouds by Bonnie Leon.  It seems really good.  I just wish I could make more time to read it.  There are just so many hours…

I am richly blessed…  by my Hubby.  He got up with me at two this morning when I couldn’t sleep because I was coughing.  He filled up the humidifier, checked on me, brought me things and didn’t seem at all bothered by the time or inconvenience.  He is the best!

I’m praying for… a little boy who is only two and has leukemia.  He is in ICU with an infection.

Also praying for a dear friend with possible changes coming.

Our home…  has had better care, but is surviving me going back in the classroom full-time.  Hubby and a friend spent two full days on the roof fixing a leak.  It was 106 degrees one of the days and they didn’t give up!  So far, so good after one rainstorm.

Menu planning… Hmmm… Dinner usually consists of “Whatever you can find” lately.  I have made dinner for a record two nights in a row – Chicken Broccoli Casserole and Taco Soup.  I normally hate using canned chicken, but found a name brand “grilled chicken” in the can and it tasted fine in a casserole.  Have plans to make sloppy joes and sausage, eggs & hashbrowns next week.

A photo or two…
