Homemaking Tip for this week:
Make giant ice cubes. Add layers of thinly sliced lemons, limes and oranges in muffin cups. Fill each cup halfway with water and freeze. So pretty floating in a pitcher of tea, lemonade or ice water.
Favorite Blog Post of the week (mine or other):
How's Andy Doing? by Mari at My Little Corner of the World. I loved this post because we get to see how the military members pass their days, it's not all about working long hours, they find time to make the most of where they are and have a little fun. The best for me was reading Andy's comment to his mom's post LOL
Favorite photo from last week:
Lesson learned the past few days:
That God loves you regardless of who you are and that we need to let Him be in charge. I know a lot of people out there are not thrilled with the way the election turned out...I'll be honest and admit that I was hoping McCain won, but one thing I've learned the past week is that though I may not understand the reason for President Obama to have been elected or why....I need to let God take over and let Him take control and work on it.
On my Prayer List:
Our new president
Curt - he will be testing for his next stripe in a few weeks
Troops overseas and at home
Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:
Key Verse: Colossians 1:9 "Since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you and asking God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all spiritual wisdom and understanding"
Prayer pushes the light and hope into little dark corners of your life
