This has been such a fun week! All day today I was thinking of the other ladies making their homes havens and how it seems like we are all working together. :)
I had my quiet time after getting the kids off to school. I sat at my kitchen table with a cup of coffee while the morning sun poured in through the windows. Today I read in Isaiah and Psalms. I prayed Psalm 4:8 for all my children, but especially for Peter as he serves in Iraq. His safety is, of course, always on my heart.
I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, LORD, only makest me dwell in safety.
Today's haven focus is fun. What a great idea! I decided to try and get all my housework done before the kids got home so that we could focus on having fun. I turned on some Christmas music while I dusted, vacuumed, and did some laundry (yes...more laundry). :)
After school the kids did homework and we finished the display board for Cindy's science fair project.
I made home made pizza for supper.
Then the girls quickly showered and got into their PJs so we could have a family movie night. I spread a blanket in front of the TV and popped some popcorn. They were so excited because I almost never let them eat in the living room.
The kids are snuggled on the floor with blankets, pillows, and popcorn and I'm keeping half an eye on the movie while taking turns between knitting and typing.
I hope you all are having a great evening!
