Monday Meanderings....

*Bible Study:

I am looking over this study and trying to come up with something for a good character study for the girls. Any ideas?

*Memory Verse:

Actually it's a few verses but I want to work on this particular passage for the next couple of weeks. I just feel that it's very important to my life right now to carry this verse in my heart.

Ephesians 3:14-19

For this reason I kneel before the Father,
15from whom his whole familya]">[a] in heaven and on earth derives its name. 16I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

*Husband Encouragement:

Help with outside chores that he usually does so that he has more time to relax in the evenings instead of being rushed around before bed and being even more stressed out and tired. Don't get me wrong, he doesn't do ALL of the outside chores but he does a lot when he comes in so if I get to those in the early evening (watering the chickens, gathering eggs, weeding the garden) he will have a few less things to do!! I, especially, will work on mowing the yard this week! It''s horrible!!

*Menu: already posted

*Zone:

~working on clutter this week (the house & the yard)

~the utility room

*Training them up:

~Fruit of the Spirit study that I mentioned

~ working on self control!!!! Any ideas on that one???

~Picking up after themselves! We have really gotten away from this for some reason and Mama is putting her foot down this week! :)

*Physical goals:

~walking every day

~playing outside with the kids at least 3 times this week! (it's hard to get all 3 outside to stay outside) lol

*Just General Goals:

~Go to bed when Charlie does not at midnight or later!!

~Get up with Charlie at 4 am and I can go back to sleep if needed but get up and at least talk to him!!

~Make his lunch every day & write a love letter to put in it!

~Make cookies with the girls

~Get some more school organization accomplished!! (we are going to officially start after Labor Day)

~Keep the car cleaned out!

That's all I can think of but if I think of any more I will be sure and add it later.

Have a great week!
