Happy Homemaker Monday

Visit Sandra here for more HHM!

As I look outside my window:::

It is late afternoon.. the temps never exceeded the mid- thirties..

Right now I am::: 
 wishing  this   cold would  leave our house... now  Lynn and I both have it!
Thinking and pondering:::

I  am feeling  sort of overwhelmed  wondering   what is going on and  what should I be doing...  feeling  out of touch with  my  schedule and  my  obligations....  just dont want to do anything

On my bedside table:::
Holy Fire, by RT Kendall

On my tv tonight:::
hoping to show Lynn the  video of  Davis and White winning Olympic gold with their ice dancing routine!

Listening to:::
the sounds of talk radio emanating from the  bedroom...Lynn is listening, if he hasnt  fallen  into a deep nap

On the menu for this week:::

Monday - grilled hamburgers
Tuesday - leftovers
Wednesday - sloppy joes,  tossed salad
Thursday - Valentine Banquet(postponed form the snow event of last week
Friday - hopefully, we will go out

On my to do list:::
put clothes away
Bible Study

Plans for this week:::

Monday -   not much
Tuesday - finish   this week's Beth Moore study homework
Wednesday -
church  services
Thursday - visit with mom
Valentine Banquet
Friday - allergy shot

What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::
since I never got around to it last week...

  birds  for Birdie's

My simple pleasure:::

this week::  vegging!

Lessons learned:
When you  are deep in the throes of  familial  fellowship   and enjoying the  unity  and sharing,  it is much better  when something is said   that is counterpoint  to what  I think,, just  hold  your tongue and let it pass... which I did and  Im glad.... it's ok!  The earth is still in its orbit and the  sun   arose this morning!

Looking around the house:::
Still dont want to... dont make me!

From the camera:::

Our lovely valentine  dinner  at Szechuan....   dont ask about  how  our original  reservation  we had  days  prior to  made for  another  restaurant  was  given to another  couple even though we  appeared exactly on time  and came  a couple of hours earlier than  a typical  valentine  time..  4:45 and they still gave our reservation  to someone else...  but we saved money and calories  by    enjoying our got o place right down the street!

Prayer List:::
Our  home, family,    church,  and  nation

Bible verse, Devotional:::
Today's devotional at  Alistair Begg

The Lord Was There

date February 17, 2014

Edom's princes saw the whole country left desolate and counted upon its easy conquest; but there was one great difficulty in their way--quite unknown to them--"The Lord was there"; and in His presence lay the special security of the chosen land. Whatever may be the machinations and devices of the enemies of God's people, there is still the same effectual barrier to thwart their plan.

The saints are God's heritage, and He is among them and will protect His own. This assurance grants us comfort in our troubles and spiritual conflicts! We are constantly opposed and yet perpetually preserved! How often Satan shoots his arrows against our faith, but our faith defies the power of hell's fiery darts; they are not only turned aside, but they are quenched upon its shield, for "the Lord was there."

Our good works are the subjects of Satan's attacks. A believer never yet had a virtue or a grace that was not the target for hellish bullets: whether it was bright and sparkling hope, or warm and fervent love, or all-enduring patience, or zeal flaming like coals of fire, the old enemy of everything that is good has tried to destroy it. The only reason why anything virtuous or lovely survives in us is this: "the Lord was there."

If the Lord is with us through life, we do not need to fear death; for when we come to die, we will find that "the Lord is there." Where the billows are most tempestuous, and the water is most chill, we shall feel the bottom and know that it is good; our feet shall stand upon the Rock of Ages when time is passing away. Dear friend, from the beginning of a Christian's life to the end, the only reason he does not perish is because "the Lord was there." When the God of everlasting love shall change and leave His elect to perish, then may the church of God be destroyed; but not until then, because it is written, JEHOVAH SHAMMAH, "The Lord was there."
