New Format for Monday's

I saw this on a blog and really liked the format so I thought I would try it out.

Outside my window…it's cloudy and the wind is blowing. A storm is rolling in.

I am thinking…This prayer has flooded my thoughts today.
"Dear God,
I am so afraid to open my clenched fists!
Who will I be when I have nothing left to hold on to?
Who will I be when I stand before you with empty hands?
Please help me to gradually open my hands
and to discover that I am not what I own,
but what you want to give me.
And what you want to give me is love,
unconditional, everlasting love.
— Henri J.M. Nouwen

My heart is…tired.

I am thankful for… my new bed, I can't wait till we can get the rest of the furniture to match it.

From the kitchen… Eli has been making Sushi. I found some recipes I would like to try. I think this week I will start with the Pizza Bread.

I am creating… this week a friend and I are going to work on making Dinosaur tales.

I am going… I am making a trip to Hobby Lobby and then the rest of the week is full of meetings. But I have no plans this weekend.

I am reading…Purpose Driven Youth Ministry, Growing Souls, Bittersweet, and The Message Solo

I am hoping… a long Spring. I am not ready for 85-90 degrees and higher.

I am hearing… Word Girl and the chomping of after school snacks.

Around the house… Is getting better. When my home becomes cluttered and messy my mind becomes the same way. I can't function properly when things are out of place.

One of my favorite things… Cinnamon

A few plans for the rest of the week… make dinosaur tales and get some things to the shed and the next size clothing out for Lilly.

Unknown Facts about me-10, 11, 12

So I guess in my business I didn't give you unknown facts about me so here we go 3 in one post.

1. Showers in the morning are a necessity. I am 100% more motivate and feel better about myself when I get a shower in the morning.

2. I hate to wear shorts. Which leads to hating summer time.

3. But I love to swim! I just wish I didn't care what others thought. Then maybe I wouldn't stress about wearing a bathing suit.

Where Have I Been?

Man I feel like a slacker but in all actuality I have been crazy busy. So Forgive me maybe I will get around to posting more soon.
