~Bible Study: continuing, "The Mission of Motherhood" eagerly awaiting Beth Moore's, "So Long Insecurity" that my sister so generously bought me...♥ my sissy, so much! :) ( I am almost finished with my "Mission of Motherhood" notes and hope to be able to sit down and share them soon.)

~Memory Verse: "The Lord, the Lord, the compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness, maintaining love to thousands, and forgiving wickedness, rebellion and sin." Exodus 34:6

~Things I am thankful for today:

*my wonderful husband who works so very hard to provide for our family and doesn't ever complain!

*After today, I am grateful that my children still love and adore me. It's been that kind of day. :(

* A God who is ALL I need. I don't need someone's approval or friendship or even love. I have my God and my family and friends. That's enough for me. If someone has a problem with me, let God handle it. I just have to do my best and that's all I can do. :)

* Chickens that lay a huge amount of eggs even if I spend 1/4 of my day washing them!

* Our van and the room it provides. So nice. :)

* The beautiful sunshine that we have had lately. Gorgeous to play in and wonderful when your dryer is broke! lol

Great Monday post! I love both books you mentioned and Fly Lady's the best. We use Medi-Share and it's worth looking into. You're on a good path - thanks for sharing. You're not alone.

Thanks for sharing the link to Charolotte Mason on habit training. I have been looking for something in regards to habits lately and this is perfect.
