Sylvia at Christian Homekeeper says "The Homekeeper’s Journal is a way for you to write down your thoughts about life. Writing is a great way to come to an understanding about yourself and your world. Keeping a journal can be difficult to do when you are a busy mom and wife, but this journal will give you a way to keep track of your thoughts and will give you some writing prompts so that you will have inspiration for writing.:
I'm not a 'homekeeper' as most think of one because I work outside my home, but my heart is there. It's hard for me to get my thoughts down on paper, hard to desribe what I'm feeling, thinking, wanting, etc.
Here’s What’s Happening ………….
In My Kitchen ……we purchased a new refrigerator this week!! I love it! It's a side by side, which means crushed ice and filtered water. Squee!! Dh had to do a bit of remodeling of the cabinets in order for it to fit. Now I dont' have water in the floor or water that has dripped all over the food inside.
On My Mind ….. Whew! Too much to mention here. Struggles within myself, struggles at church, struggles here in my home.
One Big Goal For This Week …. I'm not good at making goals. Don't have enough confidence in myself to think I will reach them. So, maybe that will be a goal~~to set a goal and determine within myself to do it! I have some 'homework' to do, some serious stuff that requires alot of thinking, praying and digging deep into myself. I will set that as my goal~~to take 20 min. a day and work on this.
Something I Would Like To Do …. I have something I've been wanting to do for awhile now, a ministry of sorts. I need to take some steps to get this going. It's something I enjoy doing and doing it for someone in need will make it that much more enjoyable.
It Means A Lot To Me …… when the friendship I try to show others is genuinely returned to me. Sometimes I feel that I'm "casting my pearls before the swine" so to speak. I've tried my best to be a friend, to be friendly to someone. Do I continue or do I wipe my feet clean of them? I long for a genuine friendship.
I am looking forward to …… picnics, cookouts, camping, wading thru the shallow (very shallow ;) ) edge of the river. Looking forward to what God has in store for me, my family, my dear husband and I as we start thru these 'empy nest' years.
On the Back Burner of my mind …… getting our finances under control, health issues that need to be addressed but right now will have to wait.
