As the name of my blog indicates, I spend a lot of time thinking about home. Of course, my Heavenly Home is the one that is eternal, so that’s where I need to lay up my treasures, and that’s the one I’m striving for. But in the meantime, I have been given this tiny piece of the here-and-now—this home on the edge of town, this family, this neighborhood—in which to serve Him. And, though this is in the earthly realm, I want the things that happen here to be investments in the Heavenly realm.

Some Weekend Reading and Some Mom Bragging

My girls have had a good week!  

Bekah is working her way to the end of a wonderful school year.

Kati planned and hosted the cutest baby shower for a good friend. In fact, it was a Cute as a Button baby shower!  She shared lots of pictures and clever ideas this week at her blog, Kati's Little Corner of the World. You can see all the cuteness if you click the photo below...

Kristin had big news this week...she released her first eBook! It is called Summer Reading Guide for Families and is the compilation of book suggestions and reviews, all from an avid reader and experienced mom. And it's FREE! If you click the picture below (the one with my sweet granddaughter Alaine!), you can get the link for your FREE download.

You can't blame a mama for a little bragging, can you?  

This weekend, Lord willing, I'll be finishing Bekah's portfolio for our annual school review, doing some lick-and-a-promise house cleaning, and making The Pioneer Woman's Beef Fajitas. What's up for your weekend?


  1. My need to list is a mile long in my head but it probably won't get done...lick and a promise is how we've been rolling around here for a while...

    I have a blog post in mind but how to find the time and mental energy to write it?

    Ah and find a place to stay on the Isle of Skye! Then the trip is all organized!


  2. You sent me off and I nearly didn't find my way back. Hooray for the girls all three! The acorn doesn't fall too far from the tree!

    We are off for a day with my sister and brother-in-law. They are doing some things and want John's advice. I'm trying to be quiet...not my home, but oh to keep my mouth shut is a challenge. ; >

    And I'm supposed to be picking up around here and yet I sit reading blogs. Discipline is not my strong suit.

    A happy weekend to you. Say hey to all the family.

  3. I agree with Vee, the acorns don't fall to far from the tree, Cheryl, Your girls are great examples of Godly women.
    For this weekend, working in my herb, and flower garden, which I love to do, this evening grilling out with DH. Enjoy your weekend.

  4. I'm coming back to visit your girls, but how much to be proud of for you, and I know HE is pleased as well, and gets glory!

  5. Brag away, Mama!
    Love the 'cute as a button' shower idea. Hmmmm, pinning this idea!
    Heading over to Kristin's blog now.
    Hope you enjoyed a wonderful weekend!

  6. What an adorable idea for a baby shower. I am going to file that one away for the future. And I shared the e-book with my homeschooling co-op friends on facebook. :)
