Company Girl Coffee

Happy Friday Everyone! 
 I would love to sit down with each and everyone of you and enjoy alittle cup o'joe. Hopefully this post finds all of you well and happy. I just got through watching the national news and man can't that just depress you beyond belief? I was watching all the folks in the middle of the country that are having to struggle with just having electricity and heat tonight and my heart goes out to them. We all take things like that for granted until they are snatched away in a second. I know when I see things like that I am humbled and thankful that our God is in control. When we see just a small portion of what is going on, He always sees the big picture ! 
      Our task this week from Rachel Anne is to have a housekeeping schedule. While most of us have the tendency to think, Yuck, I really have been searching my heart and realize that it's a blessing that I even have a home to get messy. My time with Him in the morning is spent in thankfulness for all the blessings in my life. I hope this thought lights alittle spark for you to spend alittle extra time in your day thanking God for all He gives us when we definately don't deserve it. 

1Cor. 23:30 They were also to stand every morning to thank and praise the Lord.
They were to do the same in the evening. 

Thanks gals for coming and have a blessed weekend!!

The news can be so depressing! But for some reason, I can't help but watch it...
I love the picture of your children of the beach. That is a beautiful shot!

Hi there! So glad you joined us for coffee this week! What a great picture you have at the head of your blog! I have three boys too, and sometimes I don't know what to do with them! :) I am also blessed with two daughters. All five children bring me so much joy.

We do sometimes take for granted the "comforts" of power, water, etc. I try to be sure that my children grow up knowing how blessed we are to have a roof over our heads and food on our table. (I type as my oldest says "I'm hungry!")

Have a great weekend and thanks for the coffee! :)

I couldn't agree more about the news. Sometimes I think that the media fuels the recession. Thanks for the reminders about praising God.

We're pretty selective with the news around here since we don't have a TV (by choice). But I do read the headlines online, and sometimes I think they need to highlight good and positive things that are happening around the world. Great job on your 3yo's room from the previous entry!
