Looking around the house:::
Just fixed hubby his coffee. I'm really tired this morning so after he leaves for work, I think I'll go lay down for another hour or so. I don't know if it's allergies or what, but my nose is congested, my head hurts and I just feel like I'm coming down with something.
From the camera:::Enjoying the Grill
Something fun to share:::
Have you heard about the Titanic short series that is playing on ITV in England right now? It is created by Julian Fellowes, the same man who created Downton Abbey. It is very good, I'm enjoying it, if you want to watch it too, you can find the episodes over here.
On my prayer list:::My sister in law who is going through a bit of a rough time right now.
My friends who have husbands deployed or who are getting ready to say goodbye to their husbands shortly.
My husband as he continues his studies, he is finishing off his degree.
My children, that they continue to be healthy, happy, and that they also continue to be wonderful students.
For myself, I ask for patience, I ask for health, I ask that I am not strayed from my relationship with the Lord and that I have the strength to continue pushing through even when things seem crazy.
Bible verse, Devotional:::
He will not grow faint or be discouraged till he has established justice in the earth; and the coastlands wait for his law.
