Happy Monday everyone! I hope you have had an amazing week.

♥♥The Weather♥♥

COLD- tomorrow might count as a heat wave at a whopping 29 degrees. Don’t worry as you will see the temps start heading south again by the end of the week  .

Tuesday – 27
Wednesday – 22
Thursday – 22

And we won’t even discuss night time temps BRRRR.
♥♥How I am feeling this morning♥♥

Exhausted. And a tad discouraged finding it hard to get motivated

♥♥On my mind♥♥ 

   Learning- Sometimes the learning process exhausting. Being a responsible learner means you have to apply what you are learning. Sometimes when you are learning a lot all at once can make you feel like you aren’t applying what you learn responsibly. Do you follow?

♥♥Something I want to share♥♥

This year I have taken on bullet journaling for both my blog and reading. It gives me exactly what need because I choose what gets added and what doesn’t.

♥♥Devotional, inspirational, prayer list or Bible verse♥♥ 

Today I was reading in James 5 an answer to prayer happened. I always think its amazing how when You ask God to give you wisdom and insight in growing in your faith . This was no different I have been on a journey of becoming a better pray-er and this chapter had some great insight for me!

Happy Monday everyone! I hope it’s been great. Over the next 4 weeks I think I’m going to try moving my blogging time to the morning.

♥♥The Weather♥♥

Sunny and quite breezy and cool but it’s only supposed to get better and then it’s gonna tank on Saturday. BUT it’s NY so it could change a lot by the time Saturday rolls around

♥♥How I am feeling this morning♥♥

Ahem- this evening NOT as stuffed up no sinus headache. My face doesn’t hurt and the cough isn’t that bad. NO I don’t have the current virus causing a stir but the common cold is prevalent in our area right now

Happy Homemaker …..TUESDAY? UGH!

Hello everyone! And Happy New Y…MONTH

I’m behind WAY BEHIND.   I’m Tired BUT it’s a good kind of tired.  The kind of tired when you feel like you have accomplished so much.  That was my today.  This warm spell here in upstate NY was exactly what this girl needed!   But tonight I must confess my heart is heavy for a sweet friend.  She has been walking a rough road for many years and she is struggling and I don’t blame her one bit.  Because I was once there.   and it hurts to see such a dear friend going through it too. BUT different.  Her name is important and the situation is important but praying for her doesn’t require specific knowledge. Pray for peace, pray for courage to fight with God’s strength not her own. Pray she stay strong in her faith. Pray that she will shine through all that is false.  Pray for this sweet woman!

The weather outside is::::

WELLLL this morning and most of that day was GORGEOUS!  Springlike and just downright glorious! Tomorrow however Really don’t want to think about that right now!!
