Around the House: April

Reading The Piano Teacher. I'm halfway through and still undecided about this book, but I'm too curious about the ending to put it down now.

Enjoying the last of the cool nights, with hot tea and flannel pjs.

Watching Alias - The Complete First Season. Sydney Bristow is my hero.

Avoiding the great clothes swap. Although getting to the attic to do it is much easier now, I still dread this semi-annual chore.

Patting myself on the back because, except for a few minor details (translation, R's tools & hardware that I'm not touching), the attic purge is done! I want to organize it a little better before I post pictures. But I will. I promise.

Amazed at how much stuff junk I have unloaded from the attic. Most recently, the three large shopping bags of old bank statements, etc. that I hauled to the shredding bins.

Anticipating a trip out of town next weekend to visit dear friends.

Counting the days til I leave for Peru. (65, in case you're wondering)

Contemplating how to serve the Lord in the upcoming church year.

Looking forward to the start of CJ's softball season tomorrow.

Needing to clean my house this weekend.

Searching for motivation in so many areas of my life.

Praying:

Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened. -Matthew 7:7-9 (ESV)

Asking for increased faith.
Seeking those He wants me to partner with in prayer for the Peru mission.
Knocking in hopes of unleashing His blessings that are waiting just behind Heaven's door.

I've done a partial clothes swap (2 of the 4 boys) and have my closet on today's agenda. Of course, here I sit at the computer so you can see how productive I am thus far.

Love your "Around the house" update!

I'm so impressed with your attic conquest! whoop! whoop! whoop!

I can't wait to hear all about Peru. I just know it's going to be BIG!

Love the little glimpse into where you're at right now. I enjoy these types of posts as well (which makes me wonder why I don't do any this way myself).

Praying for the Lord's guidance in all as you've asked, and knowing that He'll provide it in the most incredible and unexpected ways. :)
