Homemaking Tip for this week:
To remove mildew on white fabrics - soak several hours in a wash tub with 1/2 vinegar and 1/4 cup bleach. You can also put lemon juice on a stain and set in sun to remove light stains on white clothing.

Lesson learned the past few days:
That you can enjoy the holidays just as much as if you were still a child. I think the older we get the more surrounded by responsibility and material things we become, and we tend to let that cloud our personalities. Suddenly we get the "I'm too old for that" attitude and it's such a bummer.
I've realized the past few week, with Thanksgiving and as we prepare for Christmas, that age is just a number, you can still completely immerse yourself into the celebrations and allow yourself to take in all the joys and fun of the Season. Try it, you'll see what a difference it makes.
On my Prayer List:
Family and Friends
Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:
We know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
