Happy Homemaker Monday

One of my favorite blog homes to visit is Sandra's there you can find Happy Homemaker Monday.

The weather in my neck of the woods: Back to the 3 digits. No rain today. Bummer.

One of my simple pleasures: My daughters church. I don't get to go often but we went yesterday. I am always Blessed, refreshed, encouraged and I learn a lot there.

On my bedside table: Well not on my table but what I am reading. Too Small To Ignore by Dr. Wess Stafford President Compassion International. I highly recommend. I'll be writing a review here

On my TV: Nothing yet.

On the menu for tonight: Salad we are on a diet. Say a prayer for me.

On my To Do List: Too many things to list but I'll try:
Finish re-organizing the house. Got those shelves I have been wanting so moving more stuff around, lots of picture taking, working in the garden, prayer for ministry. More work on my Gift a Way at my other blog. And post on Pink Saturday.

New Recipe I tried last week: Nothing new but I am trying Iron Skillet Meat Loaf this week.

In the craft basket: Still nothing and I am in withdrawal....I am a broken record. The same thing as last week. I have got to get my sewing room back in order! I need to get a baby quilt done and start on Christmas.

Looking forward to: Getting the sewing room usable again.

Homemaking Tip for this week: So simple it hurts. Hang or fold clothes right out of the dryer and put away. That is the key put them away immediately. And you won't have piles like I do right now. Guess I need to add that to my list.

Favorite photo from last week:



Lesson learned the past few days: I was reminded of this yesterday at my daughters church.
Church is a Happy place.

On my Prayer List: I have an answered prayer. A couple of weeks ago I mentioned the girls at the halfway house not all getting to go to church. We have been praying about being able to do a service at the house. This past week we found a pastor that is ready and willing to do it and bring music. Praise the Lord.

Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:
Zephaniah 3:15 The Lord your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.

My prayer for you today is that God will quiet you with his love and that you will feel his love.
I posted a Mosaic Monday here today too come on over and visit.

Hi Sherry..thanks for dropping by...I'm assuming the poem you are talking about is the prayer at the beginning of my blog...of course you may borrow it...give all credit to God. He gave me those words one morning when I was praying for one dear to my heart...they are His words.

what an awesome answer to prayer! How uplifting that is to read :-) Don;t feel bad about the craft basket mine is motivation empty as well--so agree about the laundry tip, its just so hard to actually follow through on sometimes
