Happy Homemaker Monday



As I am a happy homemaker, I had to join this new Monday Feature that Sandra has created. Here it goes:

On my bedside table: The Bible and nothing else, which is not at all usual because I'm an avid reader. But I have just finished a book and am still looking for another good book to read.

On my TV: Disney Channel. DD is watching it.

On the menu for tonight: We've had leftovers. DH is travelling and when he's not at home, I don't always cook dinner.

On my To Do List: I just need to rest. I woke up early and had a very busy day.

New Recipe I tried last week: No new recipes

In the craft basket: Knitting material. We had our knitting tea this Saturday and I am very excited about it though I'm just starting and I'm still very confused.

Looking forward to: A new bedroom

Homemaking Tip for this week: I'm so tired that I cannot think of anything to post here!

Favorite Blog Post of the week (mine or other): Getting to know me, by Sandra. It was something very original and a great way of knowing one of my favourite bloggers better.

Favorite photo from last week: I didn't take any photo last week.

Lesson learned the past few days: We must never give up on people (I don't know if this makes sense in English, sometimes I just don't know how to express myself in English) because God can transform people's lives in a way that seems impossible to us. We tend to say that there's nothing that can be done, that people do not change, but that isn't true. The lady I stayed with in Lincoln last November told me that she has prayed for her husband for 37 years!!! And God has changed him and his life.

On my Prayer List: My Mum and her incoming surgery.

Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses: «I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world» John 16:33

I am just loving everyone's answers, I love the scriptures everyone is sharing and the lessons learned.

I think what you said about not giving up on people, makes perfect sense, I absolutely agree.

Beijocas grandes,
Sandra

Oh, I must do it also. Very nice.
About that award you gave me: it's not forgot, I just had not the time to do it properly.
