Normal days at home


ately there seems to way to much going on.  Whether it is things to do, to get marked off the infamous “errand list” or places to go for those in need. Many of my family and friends are going through some difficult and painful times, which has added some extra activity.  And top of all that, I have much to do with thinking about “our future move”…to where, who knows…. but I know I have a itch to move on and get settled wherever God decides to plant us.

For me, there really doesn’t look like a lot of slow down time for me in the future.  So for me, today I am thankful for just a normal day at home, just taking care of my home.

Philippians 4:6-7“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

I hope you had a nice sunny day to get your washing dry!
A normal home day, that's nice. Hope things improve for your friends and family going through painful times.

I, too, am thankful for the days I can spend at home! I'm following you blog from Southern California at 92 degrees today. (just saw your weather forcast!)

I love a day at home just doing whatever needs to be done and if the sun is shining in through the window, what could be better?

Thanks for this post, I needed it. We're going through some difficult times. I'm off for two weeks so I'm looking forward to being at home enjoying a normal routine.

I love that quote: The most important work you'll ever do is within the walls of your own home. I love your blog. Thanks for visiting me!

Cindy, I love that quote. It is so true. Those normal days at home are so special.

Glad you had a normal day at home just taking your time to do the necessary things. Enjoy! Perfect Simple Pleasure, too.

Cindy - yes those normal days at home are a true blessing. I was hoping for one of those this evening, when my washer went on the blink and I had to make a quick run to the laudromat to finish a load of wet towels. But as I told my husband, I'm thankful that I don't have to wash things by hand.
