Slowing Spring: Day 4

* Psalm 84:3-4, "Even the sparrow has found a home, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may have her young  - a place near your altar, O Lord Almighty, my King and my God. Blessed are those who dwell in your house; they are ever praising you."

- Here we are thinking about the tiny little bird again.  I love the mental image of the little mother bird choosing to make her nest near God's presence. She feels safe there and that it is a good place to have her little ones near to His heart. Oh how this is true for us as well! How do you make your nest/home near to the heart of God? How do you honor His presence in your home today?

- What can you do today to cultivate a spirit of praise in your home?

* Genesis 8:22, "As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night will never cease."

- How do you find comfort in the seasons that God has provided for us?

- What are a few things you appreciate most about each season?

Serve Gracefully:
Plan your Easter menu, think about table decor, who you will be sharing your meal with. If you are going to someone else's home - how can you serve your hostess?

Have a picnic today!

Cultivate Beauty:
Plant something! If you are like me, there are empty pots and ready soil waiting to be tended and beautified! Pick out a plant from the nursery or press seeds into the soil for future beauty!

Printable for today here.

I'm enjoying this series! Your Easter menu looks so good, too. Yum!

One little thing: Please consider having your children wear helmets when scootering on the obstacle thing. I only mention it because some years ago, a preteen in our homeschool group had a brain injury from just scootering around on her driveway without a helmet. I know it seems unlikely, but it's so preventable. I hope you don't think I'm criticizing you, just sharing what came to mind. :)
