Homemaking Tip for this week:
Check out Chore Buster, it is a great website where you can:
Enter in people and chores
Specify how hard / undesirable each chore is, and how often it should be done
ChoreBuster automatically generates a fair schedule of chores
Schedule emailed to you daily or weekly - no need to log in
I'm going to be using this for my kids chores, I think it will help a lot.
Favorite Blog Post of the week (mine or other):
My View of Bath by Linds at Rocking Chair Reflections. Loved all the beautiful photos she shared.
Favorite photo from last week:
Love my crochet eggs and the fact that the kids placed them in the refrigerator made them even cuter.
You and your husband are the only people who can look out for your children's welfare, they rely on you to keep them safe. When Jasmine had an incident at school last week, I didn't let it go, I contacted the teacher and made sure the issue was taken care of and the girl involved was punished for what she said.
Listen to your children, that's the lesson I am constantly being reminded of.
On my Prayer List:
My husband and children
Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:
1 Tim. 4:7-8: Have nothing to do with godless myths and old wives’ tales; rather train yourself to be godly. For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come (NIV).
