Monday Musings 15


Outside my Window..grey skies with little sun, temps of 49, leaves are on the ground (most), sky almost looks like a "snow sky" but temps are too warm

I am thinking...on the sermon series our pastor is preaching: GOD...In 5 Words

I am thankful for..grocery coupons!

From the kitchen...Shepherd's Pie (with ground turkey) for tonite; other meals this week include: Baked Taco Chicken, Slow-Cooked Chili, Roast Pork, Tortellini with Garlic-Basil Sauce, Turkey BLT Salad, Pumpkin-Chip Bread

I am creating...a family room with less clutter

I am going...to HizKidz Rehearsal tonite and working on the cast party

I am wearing...my teaching clothes since I haven't changed from work yet: short brown plaid skirt, burnt orange sweater, brown tights, gold earrings, green beech leaf pin
I am reading...a sad realistic fiction novel about children and homelessness, the Bible (specifically, Acts), and finishing up Sacred Pathways.

I am hoping...that tomorrow is sunny

I am hearing...a construction truck in the distance..new homes going in to the right of our development

Around the house...one load of laundry to complete, dishwasher to unload, books to return to library

One of my favorite things..watching movies with my hubby

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week....xmas shopping, library, finishing up the camping scrapbook

Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...

Happy Monday everyone.....

Verse of the day: Colossians 1: 16 & 17

"For by Him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by Him and for Him. He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together."

From the sermon notes: "Power" from Series: God...in Five Words, Part 2 by Rex Keener, Grace Fellowship Church

Just curious on this Monday and the day I muse on various things:

What is your pastor preaching about these days?
Is he doing a special series?

Are you learning anything new or did God show you anything new for your life?

I learned last week from Part 1 of our series on God that Holiness is both a gift and a growth process. I had never thought of "holiness" in that way before.

What about you?
What is something new you have heard or learned from your pastor?

On your musings...I also LOVE watching movies with my hubby. One of my very favorite things to do!

What I have been learning from my pastor...we actually just did a series called Extreme Makeover Church Addition. He talked about areas we need to actually be extreme in during these days...extreme prayer, extreme faith, extreme in the Word, extreme love. It gave me a lot to think about. :)

He talked about if someone was breaking into our home, we wouldn't just stand back and say "Oh, well" and let the robber just take anything he wants. But that is exactly what we do with the enemy. We stand back and "helplessly" watch him attack...us personally, our families...without putting up a fight. I need to be doing more fighting in prayer for my family!

Blessings, friend!

Hi Faith.

I loved the picture of the kids. Beautiful.

Our pastor began a study in the book of Acts. I hope to be settled down to a winter of faithful church attendance now that traveling seems to be in the past. Never know with the band that Doug is involved with, I may end up back out flying somewhere here in Alaska!

Anyway, I hope to get back to blogging regularly now.

Great picture!

Your menu sounds delish! I've never tried ground turkey anything.

Our pastor is doing a series on Romans. He titled it "Extreme Makeover: Soul Edition". Last week we learned about Justification.

Hi Kimberly: your church series sounds awesome! We had a missions conference couple years ago, I think maybe our first year at the church, and the theme was Extreme Makeover...it was great. I, too, need to be more "extreme" in praying for my family, especially my extended family!

Susanne: I use ground turkey in place of ground beef alot as we are cutting way down on red meat. It's not bad if you have good recipes....it doesn't make good burgers though..too dry!

WOW...your church is doing an Extreme Makeover theme too (like Kimberly's). AH yes....sanctification, justification, glorification...all good stuff! :)

hi Connie Marie: welcome back! That is awesome that your pastor is doing the book of Acts...I am currently making my way through Acts..during my personal Bible reading time! Now that you're home I will be "over" for a "visit!"
