Happy Homemaker Monday ~ March 25, 2019

As I write ...   Sunday night

The weather....  not too hot, not too cold

Right now I am...  waiting for my nails to dry before I go to bed. I put OPI Nail Envy strengthener on them. It's the only thing that's helped my post chemo nails grow. I'm also wondering what happened to March and why I haven't blogged!

Thinking...  I'd rather be knitting!

A quote to share...


"It has been well said that no man sank under the burden of the day. It is when to-morrow's burden is added to the burden of to-day that the weight is more than a man can bear." 

George McDonald, poet

On my reading pile...   
  • War, Peace, and All That Jazz:  1018-1945 (A History of US #9)
  • Bible Faith Study Course
  • Candle in the Darkness

Looking around the house...   

I've been rearranging furniture. I keep trying to find an arrangement I like in the living room. My daughter, Amy, bought some plants for her container garden.

From the camera... 

Spring isn't quite here yet.
This is from 2014.

On my prayer list...
  • Peace of Jerusalem and Israel
  • Wisdom, health, and protection for President Trump, Vice-President Pence, and their families. 
  • Healing for our country so that we may be ONE nation under God.
  • Joint and bone pain to stop. It's a side effect from the medicine that is supposed to keep cancer from coming back.
My prayer for you, my reader...

Jesus, I thank you that you hear our prayers. Father, I thank you for sending Jesus. Holy Spirit, I thank you for being our comforter and our teacher. Lord God, three in one, I thank you that you personally know each one of my readers. You know each one's needs, fears, hopes, problems, pains, and illnesses. I ask you God to speak directly to each one, to meet each person's needs, and heal each physical problem. Bless each spiritually, physically, socially, and financially. I ask it all by the power of the Blood of Jesus, in Jesus' Name. Amen.

Thanks for dropping by. Please say hello.

Trusting in God's timing, provision, and healing power

You're My Little Sweet Pea by Zonderkidz

You're My Little Sweet Pea by Zonderkidz
Illustrated by Kit Chase
from Zondervan

From the Publisher:
You’re My Little Sweet Pea is a heartwarming board book about the deep bond between a parent, grandparent, or any loved one and their little one. The sweet rhymes and adorable illustrations by Kit Chase help show all the wonderful moments shared with a child, reminding children how special they are and how much they are loved.
Little Sweet Pea, I love you. From button nose to baby coo.
Squishy cheeks and sparkly eyes, Pure delight and perfect size.
Tender feet and tiny toes, Where they’ll take you, no one knows.
If you love books from authors like Nancy Tillman (On the Night You Were Born) and Sam McBratney (Guess How Much I Love You), then You’re My Little Sweet Pea is the perfect book for you.
My Thoughts:

This was a cuddle up with me and let me read you a story sweet pea book! My sweet pea is seventeen now, but she cuddled up to me, and I read this book aloud to her. We agreed that it's a keeper. I don't have any grandbabies yet, but Amy is helping me to select special books that will someday go on grammy's bookshelf. 

This is a little board book with a soft cover that is perfect for little hands that are learning to turn pages. No worries about tears or tears. Kit Chases' illustrations are sweet and charming. It's a book grown-ups can enjoy sharing with their little ones. I believe that little ones are never too little for books. Board books make that possible for the littlest of wee ones.

Highly recommended for babies and toddlers.
