Happy Homemaker Monday ~ May 22, 2017

As I write...  Sunday night

The weather.... Beautiful! Dark with cool breezes

Right now I am... just finishing up some copy work in my journal. I was transferring notes I've taken over the last few weeks. 

Thinking... about my new haircut. Thanks Wendy!

In the workbasket... I didn't knit last week, but I might start a dish cloth this week. 

Looking forward to this week... Christmas!

Looking around the house... The bathroom is almost finished. My girlfriend gave me a nice picture for the wall, so I didn't have to go to Hobby Lobby. I need to show it to my husband and see if he likes it, too. Thanks Ginny!

On my prayer list...

Father God, I pray that each reader will know the love of God in a very real and personal way. I ask that Holy Spirit speak, teach, and comfort each reader. Bring salvation and healing through your son Jesus the Christ. I pray that you will be glorified in their lives. I ask all in Jesus' Name.  I plead the blood of Jesus over every reader and their loved ones! Amen.
