all these things :: december 12

Just an overview of what is current in my life. A snapshot of how I'm trying to give "all these things" to Him and truly seek first His kingdom in my life. 

Oh my! I just realized that in 2 months I will be 31! Wow!

heart & soul :: I've been longing to do more with my hands (sewing, crafting) and to simply do all those pesky little things around the house, instead of using "my time" on the computer. I feel a calling to put the computer to bed after the early, non-children, morning time is over. It's a longing toward that, but when the time comes, there's still the pull to "just check the email." But it's refreshing to not want to at times. ~ Working on being a patient wife, giving my husband the opportunity to lead instead of just doing it first.

mothering :: I've done better this week, thank God. It's been pretty uneventful outside of the normal discipline measures, and I'm grateful for that.

home & kitchen :: I started sprouting!!! I started Monday, the day they came in the mail. We'll have sprouts to eat in a few more days! Now I just have to read up on sourdough. I hear it's easy, but I like to read everything (over and over and over) so I can make sure I know that I know what I'm doing. :)

rhythm :: On the 6th, we celebrated St. Nicholas Day in the home for the first time. Everyone got some candy in their shoes, we said an Akathist to St. Nicholas, sang his song throughout the day, and in the evening we made special cookies for the party at church on Saturday. When they were all done, we each had one cookie. It was a really sweet day.

learning & growing :: Yesterday, I listened to the first lecture of The Good Wife by Father Josiah Trenham, and then ordered the rest. I think I will be learning and growing a lot in this area!

looking forward to...  sharing some big news with you on Monday!!!

  1. What you've heard is true: sourdough is easy. Once you take the plunge you'll be fine. :)
