Prayers, Inspirational Quotes or Devotionals::::

I finally received my Chronological Bible in the mail on January 7th.  I spent most of Thursday afternoon catching up on my reading so I could be current.
Here's a verse that stuck out to me this week:
"Then the Lord God said, "It is not good for man to be alone.  I will make a helper who is just right for him."  Genesis 2:18 NLT
Am I being the helper that is just right for my husband?  I pray so!

Happy Monday!!!

Linking up to :  Menu Plan Monday


  1. Beautiful squares! I have yet to make something with granny squares. It's on my list! And I have lots of free patterns pinned, but there's just so many other things I find I want to create too! LOL I'd love to do a sunburst pattern someday though. What a cozy photo! Woodstoves or fireplaces are so relaxing! I know they can be a bit of work to load and keep burning and clean up the chips and soot, but I miss having one!

  2. I have meatloaf on my menu this week as well. It would be nice if all the new shows started the same week so we could keep track wouldn't it? Hope you have a wonderful week!

  3. I love the colors of your squares! have a beautiful week, and I cannot wait to read your book review!

  4. I had the same problem with a few shows last week. The week was half over before I even realized it! Have a wonderful week and stay warm.

  5. I have meatloaf on my menu for next week hahah Love your crochet colors and the pattern, so pretty.

    I did the same thing with my shows, had forgotten they were back so I'm catching up as well.

  6. Winter sure showed up around here too! Stay warm and cozy. Your comfort food this week sounds yummy and should hit the spot.

    Great job on keeping up with your gym time!! Love that crochet - so pretty.
    Blessings on the rest of your week. xoxo
