Homemaking Tip for this week:
One of the best plants you can keep around at home, is medicinal Aloe. I got a really bad sunburn this weekend and applied some Aloe from the plant. Immediate relief and it's so much better today.
Favorite Blog Post of the week (mine or other):
This post "Quiet Online Games for Kids" from Like Merchant Ships. My kids love playing online so I'm always looking for great sites for them.
Favorite photo from last week:
There's nothing I love more than seeing a man in uniform with his children, this one is my favorite from last week. Watching my kids with daddy, asking tons of questions about his jet and getting a tour of every single nook and cranny.
That you don't need to spend money to enjoy yourself. Just stepping out into your backyard for an afternoon with the kids, is a great way to have fun while still being at home. Have a picnic out on the patio, turn on the sprinkler and let the kids play with the water, sit under the trees and read a favorite book.
On my Prayer List:
Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:
Love is unselfish,
giving more than it takes,
and no matter what happens,
love never forsakes.

"As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you." Joshua 1:5 NIV
