Ahh....the sound of sleeping babies is wonderful today!
I found this really neat website called Motivated Moms. For $8, you can buy a down loadable pdf of a day by day calendar. It breaks household chores up by day, so you never have just one day of major scrubbing the house. Each day, you tackle one big thing, and your house constantly stays clean. I have fallen in love with it! It even includes a daily scripture reading, and that has really been nice. I haven't found a single thing that has been left out...they even include things like "clean out purse", "clip children's nails", and my personal favorite "pamper yourself"! (Seriously, I never really thought that I needed to schedule time for myself, but I have started! Its amazing what a little "me time" will do for a mama!) Today, I accomplished everything on my list, with time to spare.
Now, I can sit and do the things I want to do while the babies sleep! What a completely foreign idea!
I am also adding a few more listings to 13 Plum Knitting today, and I hope you'll stop by and take a look! The sale is over, so I hope you got what you were wanting early! I am about to feature a few of my baby things, that would look adorable with any little Easter dress or suit!
We just had a little cold snap a few days ago, so I am desperately hoping winter is over. I am so ready for Spring. Fall is actually my favorite season, but Spring is a very close second. Everything is coming to life, (the kids can go outside and play again), the air is warm, (the kids can go outside and play again), and Easter is around the corner (and did I mention, the kids can go outside and play again!?). East is, by far, my favorite holiday. Not because of the bunnies, or the eggs (although I do enjoy watching my kids hunt for them), or for any reason retailers would like for me to. I love Easter because it reminds us again that my Saviour is alive! How awesome it is to know that I serve a living God! Not a stone carving. Not a picture. Not even a real- live person who only fulfilled a few prophesies, but a real-live person who fulfilled the hundreds of prophecies that foretold about Him in the Old Testament.
He knows us.
He loves us.
He has conquered death.
He will return.
I know there are a lot of people who don't believe these things, and I'm not really looking to start a debate (but if you must, bring it on. I'm totally prepared.) Simply put, I am just so passionate about the God that I serve, that at times, I just have to make known how much I love Him. I have to write about it! And if those of us who do believe don't write and talk about it to glorify Him, then the rocks will cry out His praises. I don't know about you, but I don't want to have to see that. (Yes, it would be an interesting sight to say the least, but I don't want Christians to be so silent that a dirty rock has to take my place in praising God.)
These are the lyrics to my new favorite praise song. I can't get enough of this song. Its called "Christ is Risen", by Matt Mahar.
***stepping down off soap box now***
I hope everyone has a truly blessed day! Thanks for reading!
