Happy Homemaker Monday

Sandra is hosting Happy Homemaker Monday and I'm joining her.

On my bedside table: The Bible and a travel magazine with pictures from Zermatt (Switzerland), a place I love and where I have spent one of the best holidays of my life.

On my TV: I don't usually have the TV on at this time of the day, except to watch the news while I'm having my breakfast.

On the menu for tonight: I still don't know. DH is travelling once again and DD doesn't like special recipes. So, probably it will be something very simple

On my To Do List: Laundry to put away, vacuuming, ironing, homeschooling...

New Recipe I tried last week: Nothing new

In the craft basket: Crochet, knitting and a diaper cake.

Looking forward to: Sun. I don't mine the rain but we've had so much that our house, and especially my bedroom, is having humidity problems.

Tip for this week: I don't know if it's this time of the day (too early to think. LOL) but I can't think of anything.

Favorite Blog Post of the week (mine or other): Home is where the heart is by Irma. It is legitimate to want to have a better material life but there's something much more important than that.

Favorite photo from last week:
DD making scones.

Lesson learned the past few days: That we should focus on our blessings, on what we already have and how we can use that, and not on our limitations, on what we don't have. I thought about this when Pastor Tito showed us a video of Nick Vujicic.
On my Prayer List: Cristina's surgery, my brother and mu sister-in-law, for God to give them direction in the decisions they have to make, my Mum's vision.
Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses: Matthew 6:25-34 «Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?
And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? So do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?'For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own». Pastor Rubinho talked about this yesterday and it's important to think about this in these times of crisis. Many times, we worry about food and clothes but we don't have to worry about that. We don't have to ask God for that but we should ask to «grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ» II Peter 3:18
