Happy Homemaker Monday

Happy Homemaker Monday

                Visit Sandra here for more HHM!

What  a glorious     Easter season  we have enjoyed....   time with family and  dear friends,,,   awesome   worship and    powerful   messages  from  the Lord....  and  spring is in  the  air,  at last!

The weather.....

Today  we have a  bit of a slow warm up...  it is  10am and  the temps   say 55....   with a chance of reaching mid 60's today...  alas,  this may be our warmest day this week.

Right now I am....
I have the weekly schedule  on  my mind....     each week  comes  with its passle of   things that have to be done...  never a time to  take a breath it seems!

I  must continue to   grow in my resolve to  get healthier in my habits...   walk more and eat less....   an on-going battle for me!

Looking around the house....

I am so  anxious to  get  the  house  springerized!  Of course, we must wait  until after  pollen season to  really   clean the front porch,  but I am  getting  very  antsy about  spending more time out of  doors   before   the  hot humid days   become  the norm... Looking forward to  the arrival of my new  bench  we ordered... 
Lutyens Eucalyptus English Garden Bench
this is my anniversary present...
From the camera....

On my prayer list.....
Our family,  parents, daughter *, son-in law, 
Our church, and   church family
our nation, leaders, 
Israel and the Middle East

Bible verse, Devotional....
Romans 8:34
Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us.
