I am finally getting to Monday Meanderings for this week. I do feel pretty overwhelmed, especially when I looked at my calendar for this week. What happened? All of the sudden, everything is starting (MOPS, AWANAS) and things just piled up onto my calendar. Phew! So, if you don't hear from me much this week...it is because I will be super busy with "stuff". I also have a group of ladies coming over for lunch at my house on Friday. I need to get the house ready for that too! Phew!
I pray that I take time for my devotions though, because in the midst of "buzy-beeness" I need the Lord for strength and endurance. I need HIS breath of air!
I hope to by the end of this week (most likely next week) share with you some pictures of several projects complete in my house. Remember my list? I haven't forgotten and I have been working on many of these areas. It is slowly coming along. It is so nice to have accomplished a project!
The Five areas:
- Bible Study/Devotions
- Must Do
- Zone / Cleaning
- Train Them Up
- Menu Planning
I am continuing with my two devotional and Bible study books. I am also trying to read through Romans in preparation for my Pastor's sermons coming up! Also.....playing worship music in our home!
I will be doing Joy Breaks as a quick devotional time.
"Loving God with All Your Mind" by Elizabeth George.
- Organize/Declutter Office (I need to get this done to bring order to our home)
- Write out plans for Christmas and Thanksgiving. We are having baby then, and I want to have as much planned out as possible
- Make Menu Plan and list of foods to freeze for Nov. & Dec.
- Continue to create my "Blessed Home Notebook"
This week I am working on the Master Bedroom. I am following Rachel's (from A Juggling Housewife) weekly list of Zones to clean. This week I will be on Week #3 (Master Bedroom). I didn't get around to it last week---so, I will do it this week!
Train Them Up:
This week is a busy week for us with having something to attend everyday this week. But, I want to make sure that I am taking time to spend with my girls. Having a devotional time with them is essential. To add to the devotional time, I thought about taking some time to sing songs. My girls love to sing!
I planned my menu for this week. Go here to see what we are feeding our bellies!
