My favorite blog post this week:
Haven't done my blog reading yet, will do it this morning and will come back and add a post.


Blog Hopping (a new discovered blog you would like to share with the readers):
English Muse - Just found it this past weekend, purely by accident and am loving it already.


No words needed (favorite photo or picture, yours or others you want to share):



Lesson learned the past few days:

Not really a lesson learned but more like a reminder that I don't really get a break.  I don't have weekends off from my duties as a mother and wife and sometimes it can get pretty frustrating and overwhelming, I just have to remind myself that it's OK to not like it at times, that it's OK to be upset and to vent and complain, but it's NOT ok to let it overcome me.  I complain, I vent and then I move on and get going.


On my mind:
My children, my husband, my family and all my bloggy friends.


Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:
Peacemakers who sow in peace raise a harvest of righteousness.
James 3:18
