Thankfulness ~ Week Three

Already to week three of November. It is flying by. This week has been great, but I wish I could slow time down on some days. Especially the days when my four year old lets me rock her and cuddle with her.

This week, I am thankful for being able to stay home and homeschool my children.

I am also thankful that I am going to be reviewing again for the Schoolhouse Review Crew in 2016.

I am thankful for the children I care for each Wednesday evening in the church nursery.

I am thankful for having the ability to read the Bible each evening with my family.

I am thankful for everything!


Menu Plan Monday ~ November 16


Time for another menu plan. The week before Thanksgiving. And another bonus, it is getting cooler and I love to make soups and chilis.

Monday ~ Homemade chicken pot pie (the crust is not homemade)

Tuesday ~ Chili

Wednesday ~  Lentil tacos

Thursday ~ Lasagna

Friday ~ Probably leftovers

Saturday ~ It's going to be cool, so I will probably make chicken noodle soup and grilled cheese.

Thankfulness ~ Week Two

I found myself complaining yesterday while we were out enjoying some beautiful weather. It had rained on Monday, but I didn't realize that it rained so much that the park would still be wet on Thursday. Actually, only the wood chips were still a soggy, the slides and swings were dry. So, what was I complaining about and not being thankful about? Mosquitoes! Wow, I have never seen so many mosquitoes at one place at one time.

We wanted to walk on the little nature trail at the park (around 3,200 feet). We started, but around the 2,200 foot marker, we encountered a big puddle. We managed to hike up our pants and wade through the puddle and make it through, but that is where we encountered an army of mosquitoes. So, as I was sitting at the park watching my children play and have fun, I was still angry about the mosquitoes and wondering why God would create something like that.

I've thought about it and I realize God would not create something unless it serves a purpose. So, today, I am thankful for the mosquitoes that God created.

I do have more to be thankful for and I'll list those below:

I am thankful for this week. Even though it rained Monday, the rest of the week was beautiful.

I am thankful for all of my children the Lord has given to me. Even though they may fight at times, I love them all.

I am thankful for all of God's creatures. Even though some are pests (mosquitoes), I am thankful God has the wisdom to know what the earth needs.


Wordless Wednesday

She created and cut this out herself


Thankfulness ~ Week One

Once again, we are at the Thanksgiving season. I have much to be thankful for this year, but I always take so much for granted until I sit down and really think about all the Lord has given to me.

I am thankful for good health for my family and me. My husband was in the hospital in June for two weeks, but praise to God for healing him.

I am thankful that I am able to stay home and take care of and school my children. Although there have been many "bad" days and I would have loved to just sent them to school for the day, the "good" days make it worth it in the end.

I am thankful for a roof over our heads and food on the table. Not everyone is able to have these two things that some of us take for granted every day.

I am thankful for my Lord. He is always there when I need Him. He has never left me, even when everyone else has left me, He is always there for me. He loves me and I love Him!
