Master To-Do List and Menu Plan Monday - September 27, 2001

Greetings, Dear One! ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ

It's the first Monday of autumn and the last Monday of September 2021...and time just keeps marching right on! I hope that your autumn is off to a lovely start! Christmas will be here before we know it! (Ohmygoodness! Has anyone else thought that thought yet?) ๐Ÿ˜ฑ 

Fall Decor 2021

How was your week and weekend? My week and weekend here were good!

I worked on Monday, worked on my blog throughout the week, enjoyed a game night with a couple of the kids and their families, cleaned out the van and got it ready to sell, finished reading a book, GOT MY CAR BACK!!! (Have been without it since mid-May...something in the steering column broke and they ended up having to replace the whole steering column. Fortunately, my cousin had what I needed and, once they got to it, were able to get it fixed without any problems. I am soooooo thankful and am so happy to have my car back!!! Thank you, Lord!!!!)

In addition to that, I finally got the kitchen floor finished. It's far from perfect, but it looks so much better than it did...lighter, brighter, and cleaner! It feels nice on the feet, too. Now I just need to get everything trimmed and find a couple of those cute little rugs that go in front of the sink and stove. I want something that can be changed seasonally. 

Tile Laid in Bathroom, Hallway, and Kitchen

I decorated for fall (indoors) and pulled out the fall dishes on Friday. I also put up a new smoke alarm (the old one no longer worked), and got the weed-eating done.

Fall Decor 2021

Little by little I'm getting things marked off the to-do list, but, of course, for every one thing that I mark off, two more take its place. Getting stuff "done" truly is a never-ending process to be sure, but it sure feels good to be getting back into some sort of groove and getting a few things accomplished even if none of them, on their own, are a big deal. 

A Beautiful Early Autumn Morning

Okay...enough about all of that! Let's get started on this week's post...shall we?

This week's menu plan...

That means I don't even have to think about cooking until Thursday!!! My goodness!!! What am I going to do with these goombahs? (That's what John called them...our "kiddie goombahs." ๐Ÿ˜ข Lord, I miss him!) I love them all so much (and him)! ๐Ÿ’“ it is...this week's menu plan...

Master To-Do List and Menu Plan Monday - September 20, 2021

Greetings, Dear One! It's Monday! ๐Ÿ’— (In fact, it's the last Monday of summer! ๐ŸŒž And I am so looking forward to fall!!!) ๐Ÿ

Right now it's warm...72 degrees with a high of 90 expected, but, tomorrow and Wednesday are supposed to be really nice...highs in the lower-70's with overnight lows in the upper-40's. I love it! ๐Ÿ˜†

How are you? And how was your week and weekend?

Monarch on Dogwood

I'm still working on the kitchen floor here. I honestly thought I had enough tile to finish it, but ended up about a half-dozen tiles short. Once again, I am awaiting delivery. The tile was scheduled to arrive on Saturday, but was delayed; now they're saying Tuesday. Hopefully, by Wednesday, at the latest, I'll finally be done with it. Then, I can start think about trim-work.

I did lay the new rug and didn't like it all. I returned it to Home Depot and got my money back. The floor looks so nice with the tile that I don't think I need a rug now anyway...other than maybe a cute little seasonal rug to lay in front of the sink and stove or something like that? We'll see.

I got a nice surprise Thursday evening when Amanda (youngest daughter) and her family showed up late. They were on their way home from a mini-vacation and weren't ready for the trip to end, so they drove way out of their way to come here and spend the night. We met up with a couple of the other siblings and enjoyed a lovely lunch at Mary's before Amanda and Aaron ended their trip and returned home Friday afternoon. It was a wonderful surprise!

Grandsons' Silas, Isaiah, and Dante joined me for supper Friday evening and we went for a drive through the park (Prairie State Park). We enjoyed observing the bison herd from the road and ended up taking a short night hike under a nearly-full moon on Sandstone Trail. It was beautiful!

Bison Silhouetted Against Darkening Sky

The two older boys and I returned the next afternoon to hike a little further in the daytime to see what we could see. The very late-summer-season prairie was gorgeous!

Hiking Sandstone Trail @ Prairie State Park

Saturday evening I joined the family up town to check out our town's annual fall festival. By the time we arrived there wasn't much going on. We took a quick tour of Main Street then watched the parade. Afterwards, I came home and collapsed. ๐Ÿ˜† 

Now, here we's Monday and time to get on with a brand new week. One filled with it's own set of adventures, blessings, and challenges, I'm sure! Let's get on with it...shall we?

The Widow's Mite

Since losing John to pancreatic cancer in July, I have spent much time seeking the Lord as to how to live, and walk out, this new role of widow. It hasn't been easy on any front, but, little by little, I'm finding my way. I have a feeling that I've a long way to go.

Part of my seeking has included searching the Scriptures. I've looked up every reference to widows in the Bible that I can find and have discovered that widows hold a very special place in the heart of our Lord. It is expressed by His special love for, and tender care of, them. Realizing that, and taken along with the admonition found in I Thessalonians 4:13 to “sorrow not as those who have no hope” has helped immensely.

Some that I have talked with...some that are in a similar place as myself...have trouble referring to themselves as a widow and don't like the reference at all, but, to me, the word “widow” is a Biblical term that the Spirit Himself uses throughout Scripture to describe a woman who was married, but whose husband has died. Therefore, to me, the word and reference is totally appropriate. My apology to those who disagree.

In studying the many references to widows in the Bible I find that a couple of my favorite Scripture passages are among them...the entire book of Ruth and the story of Elisha and the widow woman with the vessels of oil (2 Kings 4:1-7). Both of these passages are exceptional and are profitable for study on multiple levels...but...that's not where I'm headed today. I do recommend that you read and study those passages though. They are both very good!

There are so many directions that I could go with this, but, believe it or not, widowhood is not the focus of my writing today. It is through the study of it, though, that led me to where I am headed and that is to the story of the widow's mite found in Mark 12:41-44.

Interestingly enough, in the verses just prior to this passage (verses 38 through 40) Jesus was warning His followers to beware of the scribes (religious leaders) who seek recognition, honor, and prestige and who “devour widow's houses” (take advantage of unsuspecting and lonely widows).

Jesus had just finished warning His followers about this, when what does He see, but a certain poor widow throwing her two mites into the temple treasury. He calls his disciples over and makes note to them that the poor widow had cast in more than all the others. He said that they had cast in of their abundance, but that she, of her want, cast in all that she had.

As noted here by Jesus, the rich often give only a token from the abundance of their wealth that involves neither sacrifice nor generosity. Though the widow gave only a small amount, her giving represented a heart of extravagant generosity. She cast in “all the living she had.” She gave as much as she possibly could.

From this and other passages we can clearly see that the Lord doesn't evaluate our lives and ministry by outward success, but by the quality of our love, faith, and extravagant giving of ourselves to Him in sincere devotion.

Are you an extravagant giver of yourself to the Lord? Do you, of your want (of what you lack), give all that you have, or all that you possibly can (your hopes, your dreams, your talents and abilities, your substance), to Him...His service...His people? I'd like to encourage you today to seek the Lord on how to use what, you appear, to have little of to do great and mighty things for the Kingdom of God.

Now...just for fun...what is, and exactly how much is, a mite?

According to Google, “the mite, also known as a lepton, was a Jewish coin and the smallest used in New Testament time. At the time of Mark's writing, it was worth 1/64 of a denarius. A denarius was a day's wage for a common worker. In today's terms, it would be worth about 1/8 of a cent.”

The widow put in two mites. According to our passage (Mark 12:42), two mites equal a farthing. A farthing equals one-quarter penny.

I recently acquired a real mite that would have been in circulation between 100 B.C and 60 A.D. I can't help but wonder if it wasn't one of the very two that the poor widow observed by Jesus and His followers put in the temple treasury that very day. It's not probably, but it is possible!

The widow's mite coins above are replicas of those originals that were used in the Holy Land. May they serve to remind you of Jesus's teaching in Mark 12: 41-44 concerning the story of the poor widow and her extravagantly generous heart.

May we all have such a heart when it comes to the things of our Lord and Saviour in these end of days in which we live!

Until next time...

Master List and Menu Plan Monday - September 13, 2021

Greetings, Dear One! 

It's a beautiful Monday morning here on the tallgrass prairies of southwest Missouri...63 degrees and sunny right now with a high expected of around 90. 

Beetle on Rough Blazing Star

How was your week and weekend? My week here was full; my weekend busy. 

I got the hallway finished mid-week and most of the kitchen before running out of tile. Had to stop where I was and order more. Am having trouble with a few of them sticking in one area, so have ordered some adhesive, as well. As soon as it arrives I can resume work and, hopefully, get it finished up this week. Then, it will be time for trim. Not sure when that will happen, but soon. 

Spent a fun evening playing games with a couple of my children and their families Tuesday night. I'm stuck on SPLENDOR and, now they've introduced me to another new one...CODENAMES. I'm not sure which one I enjoy playing more, but both are a lot of fun!

On Friday Amber and I checked out a new-to-us Amish store that is really close by. Come to find out, it's been there for eight years, but we didn't know about it. It carries the majority of the bulk foods that we buy regularly and all kinds of other things. I stocked up on boxes of cards and stationary and even did some Christmas shopping while I was there.

I worked Saturday. It was bison hike day and the boss was going to be out of town working a special event at another state park, so I filled in and ran the nature center while the summer seasonal led the hike. It was the first day that I've worked when the nature center was open since opening April first (after being closed for months due to COVID) and it's the first full, eight-hour day that I've worked since mid-March. It was good to see people and visit with visitors to the park again, but I'm not ready to do it on a regular basis yet. 

This is one of two big bulls that met me on the road on the way 
to the nature center Saturday morning. Isn't he handsome?

I did go back out after church and lunch Sunday afternoon and worked on the fall bulletin board. The summer season was skipped entirely and the spring board that I had put up in March was still up. No one had changed it. While I was there I cleaned the nature center and did some work on the computer. It was nice to hang out on my own, take my time, and be creative.

Question Mark Butterfly
(Note the distinct silver question mark on the hind wing. Thus, it's name.)

Now, here it is Monday morning, and a new week lies ahead of me. I don't feel that much changes from week to week. I'm just kind of in a lull as I try to find my way in this new and uncertain season. Such as it is, let's get started on this week's post, shall we?

This week's master to-do list...

- work ๐Ÿ’ฒ
- clean house ๐Ÿก
- do laundry ๐Ÿ‘š
- walk ๐Ÿ‘Ÿ
- read ๐Ÿ“˜

Wednesday evening view from my front porch. The
crescent moon was so lovely and I 
enjoyed observing it every chance I got. 

This week's menu plan...

I have a lot of fresh vegetables to use up, so will be focusing on those this week.

Master List and Menu Plan Monday - September 6, 2021

Greetings, Dear One! Happy First Monday of September 2021 and Happy Labor Day! ๐ŸŽ

How was your week and weekend?

Ashy Sunflower

My week here was good...better than last for sure! I ended up going back to work on Monday and was greeted right off by the bison herd. It was the first time I had seen this year's calves and there was a late-born one that was still orange. Bison calves are orange up until about three to four months of age. Most calves would have been born in April and had already turned brown, but this one was most likely born in late-July or August. It was still fairly small. I was so excited to get to see it! ๐Ÿ’—

Young Bison Calf

On Thursday I went with daughter-in-law, Angie, to see my oldest granddaughter's new home. While in town we had lunch together and got in a good visit. I enjoyed it very much! 

Siamese Fighting Fish
