Today is the last day with Making Your Home A Haven with Monica at The Homespun Heart! This week has flown by, but it was a lovely week! I’m so thankful!!
This morning I read Philippians chapters 3 & 4. I praise the Lord for another good night and for waking me up this morning just before 6:00am. Baby was stirring/crying a bit, so I nursed her; she went back to sleep and I was able to get up and have some quiet time.
I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice.
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

Here the boys were playing store and they were so delighted when baby came along to see what they were doing. She was given the honor of being the store keeper until she went on her way.
Some baking I did, they are Hungarian Nut Rolls. It is a yeast dough filled with grated apples and walnuts. I’m planning to post about them next week.
Bread minus one loaf and an apple pie
The kitchen as it looks now! I’m off to quickly clean it up and finish making the yogurt.
The day was ok, I felt myself feeling stressed at times. I have much to be thankful for, I may not have gotten everything done, but I have 5 beautiful children and a wonderful husband! We have a home, food, friends and so much more. God is good! I have enjoyed this past week and look forward to making our home a haven everyday. That is my beautiful calling! I must run the timer is ringing!
