I cannot believe January is over. It was a good month of starting over and focusing on new goals. We had a couple cooler days so we enjoyed more indoor activities.
It does not matter what time of year it is I LOVE having fresh flowers around the house. In high school, one of my first jobs was working in a flower shop. I loved this job and now realize how this job was just a cool learning opportunity for me at a young age. My boss, who was my former Sunday School teacher, took time to teach me the art of arranging flowers. I learned how to tie bows, care of plants and flowers, and how to deliver flowers to the happiest places and the hardest places. Through it all, it was a perfect job for me. I still love to buy my own flowers and create. I have a thing for daisies so they are usually always around.
As part of our goals, we decided as a family to focus on one scripture verse a month. This month we chose, 1 Corinthians 10:31 ESV “So whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” This verse was up in our mudroom all month and we would recite it, talk about it, and try to apply it to our daily lives. So whether I was taking final bites of leftover Mac&Cheese, driving Will to school, or cleaning baseboards, I was trying to do it for the Glory of God. A simple but powerful verse for my boys. Will got so into focusing around a scripture, he asked if he could pick out the verse for February.
We experienced a few rainy days this month. On one particular rainy day, Whitaker and I made yummy, simple chocolate chip cookies. It is always fun being in the kitchen with my boys. Plus the learning that goes on in the experience.
Plus little brother thought it was really cool to have a snack ready for his big brother’s arrival home from school. You probably have all the ingredients right at home now for these Simple Chocolate Chip Cookies.
Welcome to February!
