Yes, I'm late. If you even know me slightly sadly you suspect it. We'll be having meals with my parents this week. Here's the plan but we'll see what comes of it. I'll make the plan for next week when we're moving. Be sure to check out Organized Junkie for more menu plans!
Birthday Party for Korynn
Unknown as of now – Something super easy
GF pizza thanks to Bret!
We'll probably go to Chickfila or Wendy's becuase they have good GF options and are cheap.
This is going to be a very quick week. We're going to be packing everything between Monday and Thursday so we can move on Friday. It's crazy but I praise the Lord for this job. By His grace we'll get all moved and still have our sanity in tact. 🙂
So, I really can't call this Monday Meal Plan. It's definetly not Monday and Wednesday Meal Plan doesn't have the same ring to it. I really should start doing it on Tuesdays though. Maybe I could call it Tasty Tuesday. Hum, I think I may just have to do that. If anyone wants to join me in posting their meal plans for the week just add a link to your post in the comments. Onto the meals for this week. There are a lot of unknowns because we're getting our first order from Basic Roots this week. I don't know what's going to be in it so it'll be a surprise!
Grilled chicken wings and corn on the cob
Tilipia with rice and unknown veggie
Hamburgers with mushroom/onions and homemade fries
Tacos at church for Mom and out for boys
Hotwings for City Group
If you want to look at some other meal plans (people that actually did it on Monday!) you can go over to Organized Junkie.
I thought having my alone time with God would help start my day off on the right foot. I tried it but my boys have what I like to call "mommy sense". As soon as I'm up they're up. It doesn't matter if it's 6:00 am or 9:00 am. I've really been beating myself up lately over not having quiet times with God. Why can't I get my act together? I shouldn't be falling asleep when I'm trying to pray or read at night after everyone is asleep. Who needs the enemy when I can beat myself up so well? But then……..
Don't you just love those words? But then. It's beautiful. I was beating myself up over this but then the Holy Spirt spoke to my heart. It started with a chapter I read in a book about perfection. Perfection? Not me. Never. Yeah, right! I wasn't reading or praying because I was being a perfectionist about it! If I couldn't have 30 minutes then I didn't do it.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
Ouch, conviction hurts. This has to be an all day, everyday thing and that's what it will be. It won't be easy but 2 Corinthians 12:9 sums it up well, But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me."
Praise the Lord!
Praise, O servants of the Lord,
praise the name of the Lord!
Blessed be the name of the Lord
from this time forth and forevermore!
From the rising of the sun to its setting,
the name of the Lord is to be praised!
The Lord is high above all nations,
and his glory above the heavens!
Who is like the Lord our God,
who is seated on high,
who looks far down
on the heavens and the earth?
He raises the poor from the dust
and lifts the needy from the ash heap,
to make them sit with princes,
with the princes of his people.
He gives the barren woman a home,
making her the joyous mother of children.
Praise the Lord!
