Favorite Blog Post of the week (mine or other):

Spring is almost here!
Lesson learned the past few days:

The most important things in life don't cost money! It's really important not to get caught up with wanting to buy things. Everything I need is in my arms reach. My family, children, and my hubby. Living within my means does make us a stronger and happier family. We don't have to worry about paying our bills. We are currently debt free and lov'in it!

On my Prayer List:

Families from church suffering from recent layoffs.
Devotionals, Scripture Reading, Key Verses Key Verse:

Matthew 5:14-6
Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

I love your happy homemaker posts. I love the Green Works household cleaner. It is a little more expensive than some of the other cleaners, but I also love the way it Lime, not gross like some of the harsh chemical cleaners do. If you want to still read my blog after I go private all you have to do is accept the invite when I email it to you. You will have to click on the new address to check it though, because it won't update automatically. As long as you're signed in to your blog, you'll be able to click on mine and read it. I'll probably keep it private until the baby is a few months old, then think about taking it public again.
