Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.

Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled.

Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy.

Blessed are the pure in spirit, for they shall see God.

Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.

Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake.

Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

Matthew 5:3-12

Oh Lord,

Teach me to seek You and reveal yourself to me when I seek You.

For I cannot seek You unless You first teach me, nor find You unless You first reveal yourself to me.

Let me seek You in longing, and long for You in seeking.

Let me find You in love, and love You in finding.

homemaking meme.

I got tagged by Renee. Here goes...

Aprons- Y/N : Nope. Pretty much never. In fact, I don't know that I've ever actually worn an apron...

Baking-- Favorite thing to bake: Bread. Any bread. I make most of the bread we eat.

Clothesline- Y/N : No. I don’t have a yard.

Donuts-- Have you ever made them?: Yes, but they’re disappointing in comparison with bakery donuts (isn’t that sad?). Also, Matt said they were gross and wouldn’t eat them and I ended up throwing them out.

Every Day--one homemaking thing you do every day: Well, always dishes. Forever dishes. Laundry, too.

Freezer-- Do you have a separate deep freeze?: No. Someday…

Garbage Disposal-- Y/N?: Yep.

Handbook-- What is your favorite homemaking resource?:

Ironing--Love it or hate it?: LOVE it. I think it’s relaxing, though it usually seems like a big waste of time unless something really needs it.

Junk drawer--Y/N? Where is it?: Yes, in the kitchen. I bought one of those junk drawer organizers, though (I know, I’m such a sucker), so it’s moderately organized crap, instead of just crap.

Kitchen: Design and decorating?: My kitchen is about halfway to where I’d like it to be. It’s kind of long and narrow…and awkward. I do love the color of the walls, though. They’re sage-ish green.

Love: What is your favorite part of homemaking? Nursing the baby. Does that count? Otherwise cooking.

Mop Y/N : Yep. Once a week.

Nylons-- Wash by hand or in the washing machine? Gosh, I hate nylons. I hand wash them, all the while muttering "I hate you, I hate you stupid things" over and over.

Oven-- Do you use the window or open the door to check? I open the door, usually.

Pizza-- What do you put on yours? Pepperoni, because it’s cheap at Aldi.

Quiet-- What do you do during the day when you get a quiet moment? Hm, if I’m not nursing…I’d blog or write one of the many emails I’m behind on and think, “gee, I really should be doing (insert random household task).”

Recipe Card Box Y/N?: Kind of. I keep my recipes in a three ring binder with plastic page protectors. I am in love with page protectors.

Style of house—It’s a condo. You know, the ugly brown kind.

Tablecloths and napkins? I like a tablecloth, but get frustrated when it gets dirty 20 minutes after I just washed it.

Under the kitchen sink-- organized or toxic wasteland? Neither one, really. I have limited storage/cupboard space, so I keep almost all my cleaning products down there as well as trash bags, shopping bags, and a watering can.

Vacuum-- how many times per week? Once, except for my bedroom, which has white carpet and gets on my nerves after about a day and a half.

Wash-- How many loads of laundry do you do in a week? A lot more than you’d think. I’d guess about ten or twelve—I have a stackable washer/dryer duo, and they’re t-i-n-y. On top of that, I can only use the washer OR dryer at any given time, so it quite literally takes all day to do two loads.

X's-- Do you keep a daily list of things to do and cross them off? Actually yes. And I break down my tasks into very small sub-tasks so that I have more things to cross off and therefore feel more productive. Is that crazy? I might be crazy.

Yard-- Who does what? The condo association’s maintenance men do everything (everything = nothing). And let me tell you, they are not worth the $225 we pay them every month.

Zzz's--What is your last homemaking task for the day before going to bed? Sweeping the floor, folding the laundry (one of the few tasks that I just can't do with one hand) and starting the dishwasher.

I love to read these, but hate passing them on, so I tag everyone who feels compelled to do it.
