It's Been A Busy Two Days: The Walnut Acre Daily - January 10, 2015


“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
Matthew 6:19-21 NIV


Friday was our normal errand day. We went to the bank, Sharp Shopper, Petco, PetSmart, G2K games, the dollar store, Goodwill and McDonald's.

Amanda found an app to put on her tablet that she can use to scan the barcodes of books and see what they sell for. So she's been going through our books to see if she can sell any and earn a little extra money. Mykalin was very interested in this and worked with her for awhile.

Amanda also decided yesterday that she wanted to rearrange the living room. She had some good ideas for how to do it so I let her go for it. It looks really nice and the new arrangement makes the room seem bigger.

Friday evening we had small group. Our group is going through the book Fearless by Max Lucado. It sparked a lot of interesting discussion about what triggers fear. So often we aren't grasping the fact that God truly has our best in mind even though we can't see understand what He's doing in a specific situation. 

Today was my church's annual board retreat. This is a time when the church board gets together to pray and discuss how the past year has gone and what direction to head this year. After a break for lunch individual teams meet for more detailed discussion and planning. I'm vice chairperson of the Evangelism Ministry Team and have two wonderful team members to work with so it was a pleasant day.

Doug kept Michael while I was gone. He had some work to do at the local rescue squad where he volunteers and was able to take Michael with him. Michael loves to go with Daddy to the rescue squad so he was happy.


Friday evening my niece made some delicious chili and cornbread for us for dinner. This evening for dinner I made tuna melts, green beans and we also had applesauce. Tuna melts are a big favorite here and never last long.

  1. That all sounds wonderful and I love letting the kids rearrange things, it really gives them the confidence they need when they know parents like their opinions too!
