The weather in my neck of the woods: very autumn like. I love it. The leaves are beginning to change colors, bright yellows, oranges, deep reds.
One of my simple pleasures: sitting in the house with NO noise at all except for the tick tock of the clock.
On my bedside table: Bible, fan, cell phone
On my TV: nothing
On the menu for tonight: Brown sugar chicken I saw Giada make on Food Network.
On my To Do List: get ready for my son Andrew's 10th birthday party Saturday. His birthday isn't until the 12th but this is the only time family can get together. I can't believe my baby is going to be 10. I'm having a very difficult time with it.
New Recipe I tried last week: none last week
In the craft basket: scrapbooking and cardmaking.
Looking forward to: the ladies craft fellowship at church at the end of October.
Homemaking Tip for this week: with the threat of the flu lurking at every turn, keep hand sanitizer with you at all times! We bought huge bottles of it this weekend. Make sure you wash and cleanse your cars also.
Favorite Blog Post of the week (mine or other): did not read any this week.
Favorite photo from last week: my aspiring firefighter!
Lesson learned the past few days: there are many judgmental people in the world. EVEN in Christian circles. Just let me say that the kids and I were called baggage. My husband was talking with someone about a few things and this is what we were called his baggage!! I do not want to go into detail. But please pray for me....I'm feeling VERY bitter towards this person who is a part of our church. It has made me question a lot of things, especially about the church we attend. That is just one of many things this person said. I did go to church yesterday but my heart was full of bitterness the whole day.
On my Prayer List: my Husband (he did not get the promotion at work), my Grandmother (my aunt called and said she has early onset of dementia), my daughter Katie (who has been diagnosed with bi-polar disorder), my sister Sherri (she has a brain injury and her husband has filed for divorce. Not only that, he is seeing another woman. He is unsaved), my parents, I rarely ask for prayer, but I'm feeling very overwhelmed lately.
Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses: Proverbs 14:33 (New American Standard Bible)
Wisdom rests in the heart of one who has understanding, But in the hearts of fools it is made known.
