THIS food blogger has the key to my heart (my stomach anyway). Who doesn't LOVE a donut every once in awhile?!?! She has come up with a healthy donut that has even one my kiddos over. Head on over to her blog to try this and some of her other yummy recipes. You won't be disappointed!

Created To Be His Helpmeet :4

A chapter related to being joyful! It is your choice .
I know there was a point in my marriage where I wanted my husband to hurt just as much as he hurt me. I then realized that would never happen because we are made different , all that bitterness would cause him to do was to stay a way from me and in-turn end up hurting me further.

As wives and ladies we need to recognize that we have a lot more power then we know. We  can make people around us happy by being joyful or make people stay clear of us by being bitter. Remember the things that you are thankful for and you will notice joy will follow.
“Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus” (1 Thessalonians 5:18).
 I love the story of how they played together as a couple and I believe THIS was a major factor that help in my marriage. Even the smallest change like leaving love notes around or kicking his pillow off the bed while wearing a menacing grin. Just be a play mate and a joyful one.
Traits of a good helpmeet that's listed at the end of this chapter are
-She is joyful
-She makes love fun
-She is thankful and content
"But I will sacrifice unto thee with the voice of thanksgiving; I will pay that that I have vowed. Salvation is of the LORD." Jonah 2:9
Joy is mentioned over 30 times in the bible!
- Make a written list of ways that you can start showing your thankfulness; then start living your list and show a thankful life-

Happy St. Patrick's Day

Created to be his Helpmeet, chapter 3- A Thankful Spirit

This chapter was all about contentment.  A subject that a lot of us Christian women find ourselves having trouble with.  Are you content with the life your husband provides or are you complaining, making an outright attack on his ego? Are you appreciative and thankful to your husband or are you trying to be his Holy Spirit?  Oftentimes, I hear a lot women say, "If only..., if he..., I could if..."  I've said these exact things myself.  So many excuses to find a way out of what God calls us to.  BUT,  if in God's Word you don't see Him starting a command with exceptions or giving a command with them, then why do we? All of a sudden does God's commands not apply to us? Don't allow your heart to be hardened to the things of God. 

Phil 4:11 ...for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content.

Heb 13:5 ... and be content with what you have.

1 Tim. 6:6-8  But godliness with contentment is great gain,  for we brought nothing into the world, and we cannot take anything out of the world.  But if we have food and clothing, with these we will be content.

If you are having trouble in being content, start practicing it today. Just because you've always been a certain way or had trouble in a certain area, doesn't mean that you can't change. Seek the Lord for help in this.

Romans 8:26  Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness...

Things to think on:

Have I been discontent with my lot in life?

Do I verbally show thanksgiving everyday?

Do I daily thank God for my husband?

Would my friends describe me as joyful, thankful, and content?

Much To Do (Cleaning today!)

Ok I don't know about you but Created to be his helpmeet is so helpful every time I read it, I Feel like I learn something new each time I go through it. Now I don't know about you but I will make sure to not play the pitiful victim. But also attempting to place a smile on my face each time my husband and my eyes meet. I know if I give him a wonderful smile each time he looks at me he wont have to go searching for that from anyone else.

Now cleaning time :
So my floors are looking a bit ashy ( for lack of a better word )so today I will be polishing my hard wood and tile floors. Now before you go running to pine sol or other cleaners and polishers let me tell you there are natural oils you can spiff up your floors with ...

Jojoba oil just dab on a rag and wipe it dries super fast and will leave your floors shiney
Then for a less pricey option try Tung oil again apply and wipe off excess with a rag.

Please make sure it is a 100% natural oils your floors and you will be much happier for it.

Also lets make sure our laundry is clean and folded and vacuum some of those hidden areas (closets, small hallways spare rooms etc...)

Get cleaning and have fun
Oh BTW my clean up music choices for today would have to be Mary Mary -GO Get It https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ADGnIi9KrLQ
and hummmmm... Wes Morgan - He paid it all https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ud1PRdQYBFo

Have fun and remember to praise God in the midst of your busy day!

Created to be his Helpmeet chapter 2, A Merry Heart

Lets have a merry heart, 
A joyful heart is good medicine,
but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.
I love the reminder in this chapter about smiling. Why would emphasis even need to be placed on it? Well, lets think about when you and your husband first met, when you first starting dating each other, I bet you were all smiles, laughter and giggles. Now fast-forward to the present, are you still smiling or are you pitiful looking, bitter, angry and/or sickly looking? Our husbands are attracted to that smile, that giddiness you once had over him. Even as your looks start to change and go downhill, your smile can make the difference in your husbands attraction to you. Have you ever seen couples where the woman looks as if she may have been struck with an ugly stick, she's frumpy, tired looking, and has not aged gracefully, but her husband still adores her? You wonder what her husband sees in her. How can he possibly seem so in love with her still? It could be that she has a merry/joyful heart. Men are attracted to a womans smile, so much so that he can overlook her physical imperfections (which we all have) and love her like no other. I'm not saying let yourself go because of course our husbands appreciate our physical beauty but a smile and a sweet spirit can do wonders. Question to ponder: What can I do today to make my husband smile?

Nows the time!


OK calling all home makers !! I just wanted to say that anywho so if you are not looking like my sister right now with the tons of snow in the front then now is the time to weed and feed your yard. Don't worry ladies its easier then vacuuming. All you do is take the spreader (basket on wheels) pour your weed and feed into(looks like a lot of discolored mini pebbles) and walk around the yard pushing the basket. STOP a little dramatic I know but a common misconception is to do it before its about to rain FALSE if you spread before it rains the rain will wash away your hard work.

Next who needs spring cleaning?? OK everyone needs it but right now IS the perfect time to go through your closets and get rid of stuff. If you're like me and your kids closets don't have much to give away... I bet the toy chest does. Make an effort to find at-least one thing to get rid of out of every closet in your house and donate it..
pest control : Man spraying insects- pest control
 Then take your bug repellent and get to the base boards!!( before you know it ,it will be hot out and the bugs will begin looking for food that is readily available within the dust particles in our homes.) TIP : Also go around the base of your garages and patios those are generally spots that house a lot of dust and it will become an extra barrier for the bugs to have to get through before reaching your home.
FilterFast Brand 30920 Replace…
Speaking of dust if you have a lot of it for some reason, it IS perfectly normal.Now is about the time to change our filters in our furnaces. I bet the heat has been running and chances are if you have not changed that filter within the last 3-6 months your house is looking a bit more dusty. Change the filter and you'll be set to go.
So I hope you enjoyed our before spring to do list :-) The items on the list may seem time consuming or overwhelming but believe me you will be glad you did it
