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 - Only One of January (sigh)

A peek through my window…. much greyer than earlier today, but for January, there is nothing to complain about.  The tree in the front yard has some buds on it.

What’s going on this week… basketball game, I WILL make it to church Wednesday night and Sat., Hubby and I are going to do some “once a month cooking” together.

What “the boys” are doing… I’m not sure – it’s way too quiet J.  They are probably doing something electronic.  This morning, one of the boys and Hubby went flying.

On my mind… as I head into the second month of the new year, I need to get areas in my life in better balance.  Work has taken up too much of my mental energy lately.

On my bedside table…  I got three or four new books on my Kindle and I can’t wait to sit down with it after dinner and decide which one I’m going to read!

I am richly blessed…  with a lovely home and time to spend here.  I’m thankful for M’s basketball team and his invitation with friends.

I’m praying for… for the same friend who is still in a storm of life. Also, for summer and next fall plans and that my children will desire God more than anything.

Our home…  since the last time I wrote a daybook, we’ve added some living room furniture – a coffee table and two recliners.  It makes the room feel more homey and it gets used more often now.  Even though, I slept in late today, I’ve managed to get the house looking pretty tidy.

Menu planning… Hubby made minestrone soup last night; tonight is chicken/broccoli, stuffing and salad.  Later this week: meatloaf & mashed potatoes, chicken lasagna, beef chili and breakfast for dinner (on the night Hubby is teaching of course!)

A photo or two…

Fun Day With Family!
