The Date Nights

There are so many reasons to be thankful that Phil and I got out of debt very early in our marriage. One reason that reaps rewards most often is our ability to go out together, bash around town enjoying good food, entertainment of course each other. I’m so grateful for a husband who makes this happen and also of course for the kind people who are able and willing to watch our babies for us while we do these funsie things together.

“Dates” do not need to be out on the town or even that fancy to be enjoyable. We also have many “dates” right in our own kitchen, grilling steaks and opening wine after the babies are down. The important thing to us is being able to spend some time together just the two of us.

It’s Winter as usual until you wake up one cold morning and you hear the sound of birds. Suddenly you know Spring really will come again. We always record the first sighting of a Robin by trying to take his picture. “The First Robin” of Spring is so exciting to see. This year he came right onto our front porch.

Lent Is Here

Once again we get out the Purple of another season of Repentance and Reflection. Once again I think of all the ways we can use in our home to keep this season in the front of our minds as we plod through the days. Some plans we stick with, the simpler the better. Some fall by the wayside and hopefully will return another year.

This year for Lent we will:
1. Catechesis- The Ten Commandments during our Bible Time, memorizing them and their meanings from our Catechism.
2. Memory Verses- Romans 6:23, Romans 5:8
3. Hymns – Glory Be To Jesus, On My Heart Imprint Your Image, In the Cross of Christ I Glory,  Stricken, Smitten, and Afflicted
4. And this one is a hard one for me, but we’ll try to attend some of the Wednesday Vesper services.
5. Praying for a few missionaries and their families.

That’s all I have for now. I love using our Jesus Tree ornaments and want to use that this season but need to get a few things together for that still. Also I might put out our spiral countdown calendar but we have a climbing grabby toddler in the house so that has yet to happen as well.
