Monday Meanderings...

~Memory Verse: "Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord." Romans 12: 9-11

~Bible Study: Still reading back through "The Ministry of Motherhood" I need the refresher course. :)

~Husband Encouragement: *Help him work on his truck. *Be ready to put everything away and go to bed when he does. Do not stay up and keep doing "one more thing". (Thanks, Sarah!) *Start praying for him more fervently. *Write him a long love letter.

~Train them up:

*Cutting TV time WAY back this week. We got into a little TV rut while the kids and mom were sick and it's time to nip it in the bud! I do NOT like the way they misbehave when too much tv is involved!
