Homemaking Tip for this week:
Don't be afraid to use paper plates. No seriously, I know a lot of you out there probably feel like I used to, that paper plates were ok for a picnic or a cook out but not for dinner, but along the years I've learned that there is nothing wrong with using them once in a while, especially if you're sick or busy. Cuts down on a lot of time spent in the kitchen doing dishes.
Favorite Blog Post of the week (mine or other):
I caught up on all my reading last week so there were tons of great posts. If I have to pick one though I would say "A Walk Around the Cottage/Living Simply" by an Aspiring Homemaker. Love this blog.
Favorite photo from last week:
Arizona sunset....so beautiful.
Lesson learned the past few days:
You have to make an effort to keep the relationship with God alive, you can't just sit back and take for granted that He's always there. For me, it's when things tend to go downhill, it's sort of a wake up call to let me know that I've been neglectful.
On my Prayer List:
My children, so they will get over this cold/flu
Soldiers and families at Ft. Hood
Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:
Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD and shun evil. This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones.
