Happy Homemaker Monday - 03-18-20137:20 AM
Good Morning ladies :)
Happy Monday. Wishing you all a fantastic week.
I'm sure you noticed I switched out the button above again, I just really love this one and wanted to bring it out :) You can use whichever button you wish, just check out this post with the rules, the categories and a few buttons.
On to today's list............
We've been in the upper 90's the past week, but this morning woke up to cloudy skies, 50 degrees and beautiful cool weather. I'll take it. I think I'm realizing more and more that I enjoy every kind of weather as long as it's not extreme.
Right now I am:
Enjoying a cup of Vanilla Biscotti coffee. I love flavored coffees. Also watching my hubby get ready for his test, gathering all his books etc.
About my dad. He sent me a facebook message telling me that one of his very good friends passed away. He is really sad and it breaks my heart. I'll definitely miss Alvaro Bronze, he was the kindest man and a very good friend not only to my dad but our whole family. I am praying for his children and his ex wife this morning, hoping the Lord brings them comfort.

Still have a few shows to catch up, my list is filling up and I need to find some time to watch them all. Will probably do that this morning when I am ironing the laundry.

What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::
Struggling a little with crochet. I have started and ripped out two projects. Usually I know what I want to make, pick up the yarn and just go for it, but right now, I'm hitting a block. I think I just haven't found the project I want to make, and as I typed these words it just become clear in my mind. OH.my word!
I know exactly what I'm crocheting next, for Easter and I can't wait to make it. YAY!

Looking around the house:::
Dark, quiet. I hear the fish tank in the corner and the gurgling of the water is almost therapeutic. Could easily fall back asleep like this.
There are a few books on my kitchen table that I need to put away, it's where my husband has been studying all weekend. A few x-box and wii controllers on my ottoman that need to be put back in their rightful place.
Other than that, the house is in order which is a good thing. Nothing like waking up to a total mess.
From the camera:::
These two are so cute together :)
On my prayer list:::
My father who lost a good friend today.
My husband as he test this morning.
My children as we start back up with schooling this morning.
Me, to continue being who I am, to continue loving the Lord, to continue loving my family and doing what I do. To continue being understanding, to continue not letting negativity affect me and to continue to always, always, always look to the Lord in everything I do.
How often do you pray for yourself?????
Bible verse, Devotional:::
1 Hear my voice, O God, in my prayer:
preserve my life from fear of the enemy.
2 Hide me from the secret counsel of the wicked;
from the insurrection of the workers of iniquity:
3 who whet their tongue like a sword,
and bend their bows to shoot their arrows, even bitter words:
4 that they may shoot in secret at the perfect:
suddenly do they shoot at him, and fear not.
5 They encourage themselves in an evil matter:
they commune of laying snares privily;
they say, Who shall see them?
6 They search out iniquities;
they accomplish a diligent search:
both the inward thought of every one of them, and the heart, is deep.
7 But God shall shoot at them with an arrow;
suddenly shall they be wounded.
8 So they shall make their own tongue to fall upon themselves:
all that see them shall flee away.
9 And all men shall fear,
and shall declare the work of God;
for they shall wisely consider of his doing.
10 The righteous shall be glad in the LORD,
and shall trust in him;
and all the upright in heart shall glory.
