Homemaking Tip for this week:
NOT SURE WHAT YALL USE IN THE WAY OF CLEANING SUPPLIES BUT I LOVE "TILEX MOLD & MILDEW" FOR CLEANING MY TOILETS & MY PORCELAIN SINK! ITS BLEACHY...KILLS EVERYTHING & WHITENS WITH MINIMAL SCRUBBING! I SPRAY MY TOILETS...LEAVE THEM & COME BACK LATER...THEY ARE WHITE & CLEAN.


Favorite Blog Post of the week:
BETH MOORE'S BLOG FROM LIVING PROOF MINISTRIES ALWAYS HAS SOMETHING GOOD. IF SHE ISN'T WRITING IT, ONE OF HER DAUGHTER'S TAKES A TURN. THIS ONE I LIKED ESPECIALLY. LPM BLOG

Favorite photo from last week:








Lesson learned the past few days:
THE CRUMBLING ECONOMY IS CATCHING UP WITH US HERE & NO ONE WILL BE LEFT UNAFFECTED BY IT.

On my Prayer List:
MY HUSBAND OF COURSE.
MY BOYS.
MY LITTLE PACKAGE & HER MAMA.
MANY UNSPOKENS!


Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses:
