Breakfast Nook

This is my breakfast nook. Nothing fancy. Very simple. But I like it. I love first thing in the morning and late afternoon how the sun illuminates the room and it feels so tranquil and airy. You can't see it but to the right there is a built-in desk and cabinet. It holds office supplies, books and paperwork. We basically eat every meal at this table. The nice new table in the dining room has become our homework/computer station. I don't like keeping the computer on the table but its very functional there. And not doing homework in there is not an option. That table gets a lot of use as well!

I am considering making an upstairs nook my new office/craft room. Right now that space is the most cluttered area of our home. It houses all of our yard sale/ storage stuff.

A little while back we went to a park down the road from us. We had a really nice time! I was super excited to find a park with its swings positioned under the trees for some nice shade. This park has a covered bridge built in the late 1800's. There are plenty of places to picnic and the boys had fun in the water. Drew took Nathan and Noah out in the water and I had to hold my breath...and pray! He almost fell 2 different times because the rocks were slippery. I told him never again! Zayne and I sat on a rock and splashed in the water. The boys ran around and had a blast. We met a nice family with two little boys. Our boys LOVE the outdoors. I can't wait for cooler weather so we can go hiking.

Messy Monday

Am I the only one that has a mess like this to clean after every meal? I hope not. I need validation (and a maid!).

Sunday Scripture

Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe as you hold out the word of life-in order that I may boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labor for nothing. (Philippians 2:14-16)

I am trying to teach this to Nathan, to plant a little seed in him (and his brothers). This may be one of the top 3 scriptures in the Bible to me. My biggest desire in this world is for me and my family to make it to Heaven. I often times think of all the good, hard-working, loving people in the world that do not have a relationship with Christ. It makes me sad that they might never know him and that they will have labored for nothing. The closer I become to God, the more I feel an urgency for these people. We go through so much in this life, whether it be sickness, money troubles, death, pain. I have such peace and hope in knowing that 'our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.'-Romans 8:18
