Shine Like Stars

Shine like stars in the universe as we hold out the Word of life (Phil. 2:15)
We're not trying to be rock stars but just shed some light on a sad and lonely world. Stay tuned for how God works through weak and tired, sometimes really cranky vessels.

Just a little bit of organization

I'm not super organized, I should be and I'm sure my life would run smoother if I was, I just don't have the energy to do it. But, I love organizational things. Angel posted many great ideas on her blog. Here's my piddly 2 cents.

--I got this idea from my sister, Megan, not Aimee. It has made my life sooooo much easier. Instead of using dressers in the boys rooms I use these crates in the laundry room. Now I just fold laundry and pop the clothes right in their bins. It totally eliminates having to pack them in the basket, carry it up 2 floors and unload it in their room. It's really great because I usually do laundry while watching some pointless tv show when the kiddos are sleeping. Before I never wanted put their clothes away at night, for fear (and I mean fear) of waking them up. Now I don't have to worry about that.

--I put everyone's bathingsuits and towels in a bin, so when we're going swimming I can quickly grab everything.

--My other favorite thing is our devotions system...For a long time, meal time way my nemesis, the boys were always silly and messy and I would be cranky...I came up with a little devotion packet. Each day of the week we have a Bible verse, song, and we pray for specific people and a country. I try to do this with the kids at each meal. It really has made mealtime more calm and I'm less cranky:) It's also fun to see how quickly they pick up on the verses, too. Caleb knows how to spell the days of the week from reading the cards everyday.
