Do everything Unto the Lord

That is what I was doing this weekend. Our church is small..but old, and filled with lots of broken things. Around Easter time, the Lord put on my heart to step up and get some things done. :) Don't you just love when the Lord leads you to doing things.

So Friday, my kids, hubby, aunt and uncle and me, headed over to tackle on of the childrens rooms. It is a room that has all the craft things in it (ahh my heaven)
BUT it had been used as an "oh just throw that in there for now" room.
It took about 3 hours to clear, and organize it.

No one quarlled, no one complained, we all worked together to accomplish this task.
Saturday evening, we went back over (minus hubby he had to work) and tackled the other 2 rooms.

Although the place looks wonderful, and clean, and everyone complimented on how great it looked..WE did it for the Lord! As humans its hard sometimes to do things just because the Lord asks us to. 

Remember in ALL things..we MUST do it unto the Lord, for his Glory and NOT the praises of man.

Think on These Things

I love spending time with family and friends. I always have. But I must admit, it is usually at someone else's house and not at mine. Less stress, less mess. God has been putting on my heart lately to be the Host and NOT to grumble about it.
The bible says:

 Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling.~ 1 Peter 4:9

So today..we had some family over for grilling. Here is my hubby..with LOTS of smoke :)
Here is my little 5 year old cousin Jordie. He LOVED the pool! It was 103 today...pool was nice and cool!
I am linking up with With a Grateful Prayer and a Thankful Heart....go look see

Spring the yard

Today was a very nice, cool, but windy day in Arizona. Enjoying our clouds because the heat is coming. :)
Hubby spent the morning cleaning out pool area. 
Next we decided to take out an overgrown, bee attracting, ugly bush! Here the guys are powering up the tools. Our pooch Molly has that..oh no look!
Here is the bush half way gone! it sure is a mess! It ended up being 2 bushes grown into one big ole mess!
I am so thankful I have these 2 boys and hubby in my life, I am unable to do yard work because of my allergies! So they are always willing to help.

Palm Sunday

Being a "new" serious Christian, I never knew what Palm Sunday meant. After attending church this morning, I learned what it meant. Today at church I was filled with the need of Thanking God. It was very over whelming this morning.(it is a good thing we have LOTS of  kleenex) Getting to know My Savior is so important to me..and Giving Thanks to him always...

My Savior brings me such comfort, and Joy. I can never Thank Him enough for what he has done.
