Prayers, Inspirational Quotes or Devotionals::::

Here's a verse that stuck out to me this week:
"Oh Lord, Please rescue me..."  Genesis 32:11a NLT
Do I pray and trust God to rescue me in times of trouble?

Happy Monday!!!

  1. Your blog is so pleasant to read. Hope you let the dogs in. Barr Happy Monday!

    1. Yes, I did :) They are both inside dogs and only go out to "do their business" in the wintertime. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. May the Lord bless you and your family this year. Your word "Commit" goes right along with the word "Trust" God gave my family and me. :) It was nice to "meet" you!

  3. The Fantastic Four sequel (Rise of the Silver Surfer) is actually a bit better than the first movie if you haven't seen it. Hope you have a wonderful week!

  4. I am stopping by from Jessica's blog. Your afghan squares look great! Your menu sounds delicious. My husband just deep cleaned our bedroom the other day as well. My allergies were getting the best of me and we had a lot of dust behind furniture as well as an infestation of ladybugs. Those are a big allergy as well.

  5. I hope that you have a good week and enjoy your book! xx

  6. Oh, enjoy that clean, organized bedroom! What a great feeling!
    Same cold temps and white dusting here too.
    Have a great week!

  7. I love me some Tracie Peterson!
    Your crochet squares are them.
    Have a beautiful week :)

  8. I love that feeling you get from a good deep clean! Have a great week.

  9. What beautiful squares! It's on my list to someday make a "traditional" granny square afghan, you know, with the bright colors bordered with black. But with already 2 afghans going and another I'm planning for (and even another one I promised my step-daughter) it's going to be a while. I already picked out the pattern: sunburst. Enjoy your clean room! Nothing better than a clean, organized bedroom for relaxation!

  10. Love the name Laken…I have never heard of it before. Great bible verse…holding unto that one :) Have a great week!!

  11. I so need to do a deep clean in my room... one of these days! Thanks for stopping by my blog! Have a great week
