home sweet home

 green-day-blog.gif
 ever have one of those days?   you just want to be at home.  in the quiet.  just alone.   

in the comfort & protection of your “home sweet home”. 

today was one of those days.

Psalm 121

    1 I lift up my eyes to the hills—
       where does my help come from?

    2 My help comes from the LORD,
       the Maker of heaven and earth.

    3 He will not let your foot slip—
       he who watches over you will not slumber;

    4 indeed, he who watches over Israel
       will neither slumber nor sleep.

    5 The LORD watches over you—
       the LORD is your shade at your right hand;

    6 the sun will not harm you by day,
       nor the moon by night.

    7 The LORD will keep you from all harm—
       he will watch over your life;

    8 the LORD will watch over your coming and going
       both now and forevermore.

just a glance

 ditl-blog-use.gif ok.  today i brought my camera with me and i took a bunch of pictures to use in scrapbooking:  “a day in the life of {just me}”.    these are just a glance at a few of them.

  • this is me, getting my coat on and checking the mirror by the front door, ready to go run errands…
 ditl-blog-2-use.gif
  • obviously, a pic of my car keys.  i enjoy driving, especially with a starbucks in my cup holder and the radio set to my favorite Christian radio channel.  as a stay-at-home mom, i do a lot of driving…whether it be running errands, meeting a friend, picking up my son from school, going to Bible Study, shopping, or meeting my hubby for lunch…
 ditl-blog-starbucks.gif
  • a sign i love to see….knowing i am on campus and about to be sipping my drink of choice!  yum!  good morning, starbucks!
 ditl-blog-3.gif
  • this is a ‘look’ i often get from our dog, chewy….he’s waiting patiently with his leash on, ready to go out.  (somehow, this is mainly my job)  so, i am sure that this process happens maaannny times during the typical day…..good thing he’s so cute!
 ditl-blog-4.gif
  • my absolute favorite household chore–laundry!  really!  i do love it!  i love the smell of clean laundry, the empty hamper, the clean piles of folded laundry.  i love everything about it.  this is my favorite detergent and my favorite fabric softener.
 ditl-blog-5.gif
  • my reflection in my laptop, doing what i enjoy…..checking my blog, browsing other blogs, reading my email and entering what i’ve eaten in my food/calorie journal, while curled up under our favorite Steelers blanket.

well, that’s just a glance of my daily life.  (as boring to you as it may seem, i am blessed to be a stay-at-home mom, no matter how monotonous the day may be.)

i need to finish documenting the remainder of my day, print my pictures, and scrap!  i will post the finished project in a day or two.

He Lives!

easter2007.jpg  HE LIVES

I serve a risen Savior, He’s in the world today;
I know that He is living whatever men may say;
I see His hand of mercy, I hear His voice of cheer,
And just the time I need Him, He’s always near.

Chorus
He lives, He lives,
Christ Jesus lives today!
He walks with me and talks with me
Along life’s narrow way.
He lives, He lives,
Salvation to impart!
You ask me how I know He lives?
He lives within my heart.
In all the world around me I see His loving care,
And tho’ my heart grows weary I never will despair;
I know that He is leading thro’ all the stormy blast,
The day of His appearing will come at last.
Chorus
He lives, He lives,
Christ Jesus lives today!
He walks with me and talks with me
Along life’s narrow way.
He lives, He lives,
Salvation to impart!
You ask me how I know He lives?
He lives within my heart.
Rejoice, rejoice, O Christian, lift up your voice and sing
Eternal hallelujahs to Jesus Christ the King!
The hope of all who seek Him, the help of all who find,
None other is so loving, so good and kind.
Chorus
He lives, He lives,
Christ Jesus lives today!
He walks with me and talks with me
Along life’s narrow way.
He lives, He lives,
Salvation to impart!
You ask me how I know He lives?
He lives within my heart.
