Homemaking Tip for this week:
Use old serving dishes in a new way for a fresh look. Handed-down cream and sugar sets can hold sauces, bread sticks can be arranged in gravy boats and a trifle dish can make a great salad bowl.
Favorite Blog Post of the week (mine or other):
Winter Manifesto Series by Soulemama
Favorite photo from last week:
Lesson learned the past few days:
That I can't control everything and that there are times that I need to put it in the Lord's hands and quit trying to take it back. We've all been sick the past week and it was frustrating and overwhelming at times. I kept praying about it and then asking God why he wasn't making us better faster....I finally decided to stop and let Him be in control. Needless to say, things started running a lot smoother and everyone began improving.
On my Prayer List:
Becky and her family at Sweet Cottage Dreams
Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:
4Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! 5Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. 6Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
