Happy Homemaker Monday - 01/27/201410:12 AM
As I look outside my window:::
22 degrees at the moment, cold, grey, foggy....AGAIN! I have to say that as much as I love Idaho, I'm actually starting to feel quite claustrophobic. It's been foggy for 2 weeks, I haven't seen the beautiful mountains in the distance in what seems like forever. I'm starting to miss Arizona at this point LOL
Right now I am:::
In my bedroom. Just finished making the boys breakfast and the hubby and I some coffee. Now I'm typing up this post and preparing for the day ahead. mental list of what I have to get done today.
Thinking and pondering:::
On a lot of things. Mainly the lessons that I'm supposed to be learning right now, on being thankful even through the hard days and on accepting that this is the path I'm supposed to be on for the moment.
On my bedside table:::
Playing St. Barbara, a book for a review.
On my Kindle I'm reading Love by the Letter by Melissa Jagears.

Lesson learned the past week:::
It's been an onslaught of lessons for us. Some I see clearly, others I don't, and quite honestly right now we're in the middle of some huge tests and lessons that don't make a lick of sense to me. I am just trusting in the Lord and knowing that we are supposed to be learning something big here.
Looking around the house:::
The house is dark and quiet, I think the weather makes it look so dreary. I am thinking it's a candle lit, fresh bread and soup for lunch kind of day.
From the camera:::
My husband has another job interview on Wednesday and it would be a great job if he got it.
My brother went for an interview on Friday morning, hoping to get a phone call for him this week.
Bible verse, Devotional:::
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Ephesians 6:12-13 NIV
