Homemaking Tip for this week:
To remove oil dripping from concrete plain old laundry detergent can be sprinkled on the oil enough to cover the dripping - wait overnight and the oil is absorbed from the concrete by the powder.
Favorite Blog Post of the week (mine or other):
In memory of our beloved son by Becky at Sweet Cottage Dreams. This post had me crying to the point where I was actually sobbing and found it hard to write the comment. Becky and her husband lost their son Jordan on the 4th of February 2009. I don't know how Becky was able to write this post and my heart goes out to her during this awful time.
Favorite photo from last week:
Lesson learned the past few days:
That no matter how much I try, I can't always protect my children from the hardships and horrible things that surround us on a daily basis. On saturday afternoon we headed out to lunch and unfortunately were stopped at a light right next to the water canal just up the street. There were a lot of policemen and fire trucks, ambulances and divers around us and right there on the road, a body of a man who had been pulled from the canal. My children saw their first dead body and they were shocked to say the least. I only hope in time they forget the image that is STILL so vivid in my own mind.
On my Prayer List:
Becky and her family at Sweet Cottage Dreams
Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:
Eph. 4:32 (King James Version)
32And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you."
