Happy Homemaker Monday

Thank you Diary of a Stay at Home Mom for hosting this every week.


As I look outside my window...

I am starting to see the brown frozen grass appearing from below the melting snow.  We are going to hit the mid 40's this week.  At this point I will take anything above 20 degrees.

Right Now I Am...

Thinking and pondering...

About our counseling training class from Saturday.  There is so much information to digest.  I am so glad it is only once a month. 

On My bedside table...
Bible
Kindle
Candle...it's a lavender and lemon scent.  I love it.

On My TV tonight...

Not sure.  I've been trying to stay away from TV.  I have so many books I want to read.

Playing on the radio...

Casting Crowns

On The Menu this week...

Monday~ Lasagna
Tuesday~ Chicken
Thursday~ Beef
Friday~ Pork

On My To Do List...

Review class notes.
Paint the trim in the bathrooms.  I still haven't had a chance to do this.
Laundry

What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating...

Probably nothing this week

My simple pleasure...

Sewing

Lesson learned the past week...

God WILL use my life events (good and bad) to counsel people.  I had been letting Satan mess with my head recently regarding my abilities to counsel others.  Mainly when it comes to parents and teens.  I've mentioned here before about the trials we had with our family last year.  Our teacher at class shared a store about his daughter that really hit home for us.  I was very encouraged by what he had to say.

Looking Around the House...

Not much around to do.  The dishes are done and put away.  Some books that need to be put away in the dining room. 

From The Camera...

From the blizzard we had last week.  Most of the snow melted in a few days later.  YAY!  We ended up with about 14 inches of snow in about 24 hours.


On my prayer list...

Our Church
Our Pastor and his family
My kids
My husband
My parents

Bible Verse, Devotional...

“Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing?" Matthew 6:25

I am working on a blogging series about worry and how we should handle it.  I pray it is a blessing to those who read it.  The first post should be up this week.

I'm looking forward to the series as well, I've been worrying a lot of late. Lots of stress, fear and worry.

Looking forward to your series, worry is one of those things that can be so debilitating.

I'm glad the snow is melting for you, hoping you get some warm weather.

Have a great week Jen.
