Trading my ashes for beauty….that He might be glorified.
Good Monday Morning 6.5.22
Happy Monday friends! I hope everyone had a good weekend. It was rather glorious – weatherwise – here and we enjoyed as much time as possible outside. Ate our meals outside, too…which I always enjoy! Looking forward to another week, but for now….here is the current “state of affairs” at my house.
Outside my window. More sunshine! I don’t understand what there is not to love about summer!! We are expecting some rain later this week, but, today, you will find me on the porch (or perhaps the back patio) most of the day!
Around the house. All is quiet. Everything seems to be in order – and in its place. A good start to a Monday morning. There is a new dress – still in its Amazon package – on the table that I forgot to open. So, happy mail this morning:) And another package that needs to be put in the mail. A little something for a bride-to-be friend (yes, a “little” something!)
Also on the to-do list. I brought out my patriotic – or Fourth of July -things. I’m sifting it. Some to consign but most to donate. I’m as patriotic as the next girl but the decor really does not fit in my house and I don’t really enjoy using it. I will keep a few things but most of it can go. I have been saying this for years but I always wait until it is too late in order to consign it. I’m on the ball this year!
On the menu this week. I am looking for a hash brown or other breakfast potato casserole that is yummy. I need to take one to a ladies’ breakfast on Saturday. The last one I attempted was super dry….so I’m hoping to do a “test run” on a new recipe this week. Hopefully, there will not be three or four casseroles in our future. I’m hoping for success from the start:) Any good ideas??
On my mind as the week begins. Nailing down a few plans for Father’s Day. Also, making plans for our trip next week to Lancaster. Just a few days away but we are going to explore a few new-to-us spots. A change in curriculum for Junior Church…and some summer plans there as well. Nothing major. I am concerned for my uncle. He has been in the hospital for over five weeks now. Every week, I anticipate “big progress” but the steps forward towards healing (or even leaving the hospital) are baby steps, at best. I wish there was more I could do to help. But, for now…it is time for a cup of coffee and some time in God’s word! Have a beautiful week. I hope will you come back later this week.
There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. Romans 8:1
This is a verse I’m working on memorizing this week. I (sorta/kinda) know it already but a good refresh this week will be good. I joined Lisa’s memory challenge. We will be working on several verses from Romans through the summer.
