I honestly cannot believe it. last week it snowed almost every single day. It was hard to believe that spring had been around for almost a month! Well this week SPRING decided to show up which is PERFECT because this week all of our kids are on Spring break.It has been absolutely glorious and the munchkins have been outside playing and helping their dad do all sorts of things.
Well in Honor of spring like weather…
Let’s SPRING into our Happy Homemaker Post!
HAHAHA – ok I’m done Now!
The weather:::. Umm did I mention it has been GORGEOUS! Mid 60’s and sunny and we are beginning to see various signs of spring.
As I look outside my window:::Bright skies fading into a cadet blue!
Right now I am::: sitting at the table while the kiddos enjoy a movie
Thinking and pondering::: Many things. Like gee I better wrap the Christmas presents to take to my parents house tomorrow. Yes it has been THAT kind of winter and yes we will be celebrating Christmas in April!
On my bedside table::: my diffuser and some oils
On my tv::: One of the swan Princess movies (Don’t ask)
On the menu for this week:::
Monday – Baked Chicken with parmesan butter Pasta
Tuesday – Away
Wednesday – Rueben sanwiches
Saturday – Pork BBQ and Potato Salad
Sunday – Little Beans Birthday dinner but we have not discussed that yet
On my to do list::: Spring cleaning, clean my craft room and my bedroom and be ready to do some painting in the projects next week.
What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating::: I am waiting for hubby to get home so I can put the last few pics in His grandparents scrapbook.
My simple pleasure::: Sitting outside reading in the sunshine and hearing the spring peepers
Lesson learned the past week::: sometimes God wants us to just trust him rather than trying to fix things. Sometimes we need to just let Him do His work in a situation.
Looking around the house::: Well I need to dust and the kitchen needs a good moping (again) Hahaha That’s what happens when you get April (SNOW) showers
From the camera::
Why Yes that is Phil Joel from the Newsboys (Old) and Zealand. Did I mention that we saw the Newsboys United Tour On Saturday?? NO? well guess what we did. He even danced with that handsome boy!
Prayer List::: Well that Kiddo in the picture up there is still having struggles health wise with two trips to see medical professionals this week. Once to his regular doctor and once to the ER the very next day when he had bleeding from his nose and mouth. No worries we figured out and I plan on writing more about that in another post this week.
Friends and family going through some tough tough things
Our church building project!
Bible verse, Devotional::: Today I started the last Chapter of Hebrews. This study should have been finished in December (or earlier) but sometimes life gets seriously derailed. I am just now finally finishing many things I started last year. I have still kept moving forward too BUT I really needed to be able to finish a few things that just got dropped at the end of the year.
Hebrews 13:1-12 NIV
1 Keep on loving one another as brothers and sisters. 2 Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it.3 Continue to remember those in prison as if you were together with them in prison, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.
4 Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral. 5 Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said,
“Never will I leave you;
never will I forsake you.”[a]
6 So we say with confidence,
“The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid.
What can mere mortals do to me?”[b]
7 Remember your leaders, who spoke the word of God to you. Consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their faith. 8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.
9 Do not be carried away by all kinds of strange teachings. It is good for our hearts to be strengthened by grace, not by eating ceremonial foods, which is of no benefit to those who do so. 10 We have an altar from which those who minister at the tabernacle have no right to eat.
11 The high priest carries the blood of animals into the Most Holy Place as a sin offering, but the bodies are burned outside the camp. 12 And so Jesus also suffered outside the city gateto make the people holy through his own blood.
