It took me a really long time to find a meal planning system that worked. I tried several paper and online options without much success. This weekly meal planner includes breakfast, lunch and dinner, with options on the side to keep meal planning flexible. This is an updated version of an old black and white copy. Enjoy!
What is rest? Rest means something different to everyone. Maybe it’s sleeping in on a lazy rainy morning. Maybe it’s a day off from work. Maybe it’s a week long vacation. What does rest mean spiritually? I find myself in this perpetual state of needing rest at times. But most of the time, I don’t even know what that looks like. And why do I need just so much rest anyway?
What is the definition of a break? It is different for everyone and based on who you talk to, it can vary. It also varies based on the environment, a workplace, at home, school, etc. For everyone though, a break is in essence a time away from some thing. The question is, what is that thing?
So it was my birthday week this past week. What a year! On my 30th birthday, I was still wondering if we would ever have kids. Mid-thirties, this blog was born and shortly after so was baby #3. And now late-ish (lol) thirties I am homeschooling, enjoying this blog (a little more consistently) and learning even more about myself through Jesus every day. This is how the journey started and what I would like to share with you here.
We are only two months in, but 2019 has come in with a bang for our family. Getting back into a routine has been difficult, but somehow, some way a meal plan was made on Sunday and so far it has been followed.....for the most part.
Those Monday mornings when you wake up and just want to stay in bed.....that would be the start of this week. The crankiness, the exhaustion, the lack of motivation, and that was just from me - not even touching the kids’ attitudes. Enter faith, community and a whole lot of Jesus.
It's Friday! Who else feels frumpy today? Just me? Oh good. ;) Despite it being a fairly quick week - it was a little hectic and I was not in the mood to anything today. I didn't want to get out of bed. I didn't want to make breakfast. I just didn't want to start the day. That doesn't really fly with three kiddos five and under. It was a crazy week, which is normal, but making the most out of the early morning time before kiddos get up can make all the difference.
Please check back often as I am adding or modifying pages as time permits.
Scripture/Quote of the Week:
For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.
