Yesterday (Tuesday) was an ordinary day but it turned out so blessed beyond measure. What a great day!
Madi Grace & Sarah Faith having their first cup of hot chocolate of the season. A Fun First for this winter!
I devoted the day to God, being a servant and asking for His blessing. All morning and all day we talked about Jesus!
The girls and I did chores and fun things but we all agreed it was one of the best days ever and I know it's because we spent it talking about how serving someone is the same as serving Jesus.
(Remember the scripture that goes something like, "For what you do for the least of these you do for Me." (not an exact quote)
We talked about the order in which we should serve:
JOY! J-Jesus; O-Others; Y-You.
In the spirit of Serving - we all worked together to make lunch.
Here, Sarah Faith is stirring the noddles as she and I made macaroni and cheese. :) Mmmm!
......and here, Madi Grace is making each of us a peanut butter and jelly sandwich to go with our mac-n-cheese.
After lunch we worked JOYFULLY on more chores.
We had to carry lil Hannah to serve her most of the day.
As you can see, she is holding her leg.
She spent much of the day before playing a jump game and her sweet little muscles were sore and she was struggling to walk.
After our chores and such, as a treat, we made Gatorade popcicles!
Mmmmmmm! These ADORABLE Mickey Mouse popcicle maker was from Disney from my precious friend, Tamara at Branches of Wisdom. She is so loving and good to us! Thank you Tamara!
At the end of the day I made spaghetti so my husband would come home to an already prepared meal.
It was made with much joy and much LOVE.
Then, we sat as a family at our table and enjoyed our meal.
See, the day was ordinary but because we talked about Jesus all day, it was amazing. In fact, before I started dinner, we put on some wonderful Christian music (the girls helped choose songs) and we listened and enjoyed it so much.
I praise God for this day and will hold it in my heart as we make other days like this one. We were all so happy!
