Homekeepers Journal

Here's what's happening~~~

In my kitchen....homemade whole wheat blueberry buttermilk waffles, sausage. Yum!! and I wonder why my clothes are getting tight.

With the children....I am so blessed to have my daughter and son. Each with their own unique personality, there own likes and dislikes. But I love them both equally. Differently? Yes, because they each require a different kind of love but if you could measure my love for them it would be the same.

What I'm reading....I have several books going right now. One is "Housekeeping" by Marilynne Robinson. Some good reviews here on this link.

Another I just started reading is "Book Of Hours" by Davis Bunn.

Dh and I are starting "The 5 Love Languages"

What I have been learning...learning how to love and be loved, how to accept things for what they are, learning that things and people aren't always as I think they are, learning to listen, not just with my ear but with my heart as well.

What I’ve Been Noticing ….that people are afraid to ask someone how they are doing-face to face. They will ask someone who is relating or who is an acquaintance. Afraid to get involved.

On the back burner of my mind...that I really need to get serious about my health. Yes, I need to move this to the front burner.

In the deepest dark recesses...things that are better left unsaid. But at the same time, praying God will bring these things to light and let His truth be known in them. God knows they are there anyway.

Scripture/thought of the day...Acts 17:28--For in Him we live, and move, and have our being;

I agree with, well, everything you wrote.

Would love some of those waffles and sausage... food is a great thing - Delicious food is too wonderful for words. Those waffles and sausage sound too wonderful for words... (I'm drooling here!)

Oh! Happy, Happy Anniversary!
We'll be celebrating 23 years, this year, too (in November)!

Many Blessings,

Love your thoughts and words. The books sound interesting. I have noticed the same as you........folks are all worried and I think they are scared to open up this worry with others who are hurting. Love your scripture verse. blessings,Kathleen

Oh, I like this list. I started putting a Praise and Prayer at the end of each of my blogs. Now about 4 more people are going to try it. I borrowed it from another blog. :)
