here are some really fun Christmas activities that our family enjoys doing each year. The Chocolate Peppermint Spoons and the Advent Calendar are enjoyed so much by children. The homemade gifts are something we try to do also, but this year we couldn't make any because of our 'big move.'
You must try the Spoons...you will LOVE them! I promise!
I am really enjoying reading my bible this year but I really don't have the time right now to comment on each days reading. So, I'm not going to make it a goal everyday to comment on what I've read. This way it doesn't become a burden to me. I am limiting my time on the computer at this time in my life because I have a lot going on with my family, kids, and homeschool that needs my undivided attention.
I hope everyone is learning a lot from the Word of God and I will comment here about my readings as I have the time.

I absolutely loved todays reading in Matthew. We are told that if we will only seek God first, he will take care of all of our needs. If we put our needs first...striving for bigger houses and better material things, if this is where our heart and efforts are focused then we are not living as God wants. He has promised to take care of all that we need (and what we desire or want) if we will only put him first. WOW! What a promise.
In Psalms we read about the stars. The entire earth speaks of God's glory. If we will look in nature we will clearly see just how awesome the Lord of Hosts truly is.
in Proverbs I loved this:
He stores up success for honest people (vs.7)
I am claiming this verse for me and my family for 2009. Praise be to God for all that he does!
Hi, my name is Michelle. I am a wife, a homemaker, and a homeschool mom. I write homeschool unit studies and make notebooking pages that I sell at my website Homeschool Notebooking. I also have a homeschool blog where I share everything related to our homeschool and news about my website.
This blog is about my life as a homemaker. I am so proud that I am at home with my children. I wish to share my joys and frustrations, my insights and my questions. I am learning so much from the Lord right now, I feel that this time in my life is a real "growing season." My life is far from perfect, but I have a heart that seeks the Lord and I believe He will lead me where I am supposed to go.
If any older and wiser women in the Lord could share their advice on any topic I would greatly appreciate it.
Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoy reading.
