DH and I read a chapter in Proverbs each day beginning on the first day of the month. I have decided to go a little further in my personal devotion and find a verse in the chapter that really speaks to my heart.
I wrote it on the card with my to do list and carried it with me as I did my work all the while memorizing it. My verse for today is this....Proverbs 1:33~But whoever listens to me will dwell safely, and will be secure, without fear of evil. I really like this verse because my heart's desire is to listen to the voice of God, and to do what His Word says....
After devotions I started my laundry, made the bed,cleaned the bathrooms, watered houseplants, and straighten the house. I stepped outside on the porch for just a moment to bask in the sunshine as it was so beautiful today, and when I reached for the door knob to go back in I noticed a job that I have been wanting to get done for months, I said' today is the day!"
Ugly huh? I really didn't think I would be able to do anything with it, but remembered that my dad used Brasso on his military pins when they needed cleaning, and many times helped him shine his pins and buttons. I found some in the cabinet that was really old, but decided to try anyway. After applying and a lot of rubbing and more rubbing this is the result....
Not bad huh? I am so pleased with the result. It took a lot of trips out on the porch to get this. I even had time to clean the screened porch today. I might try some newer cleaner, as Miss perfect wants it perfect. lol
When we started finishing the porch I suspended my walking as I was working very long days, and since it is now finished I have no excuse to not exercise.
So last Friday I started again, and today I tried to talk myself out of walking, because I was a little tired, but the phone rang and guess who was calling, My coach aka dh,reminding that if I was going to walk I might want to before it got to cool. So I put my tennis shoes on and here I went. Got 2 miles done. Yea!
So how was your day? Hope you had a great one!
This blog is dedicated to my dear family who live many miles away, and to you dear ladies , who have a heart for keeping the home fires burning. You, who love and cherish your family, and have a desire to create a home that says "Welcome, you are loved and cared for."
My desire is that when you leave that you will be encouraged and know that you too are loved.
