Menu Plan Monday ~ August 1-7

It's been a rough weekend for me & my family.  Nothing life threatening; but as parents, my husband and I have made the tough choice to turn some issues concerning one of our children over to God's control.  We've learned the brutally hard way that we are not in control  and that our efforts to lead our child in the direction we think best is only getting in the way of the path God has laid out.  We can't change the situation or improve things....but we are holding hard & fast to the knowledge that God can.  If you are felt lead, prayers regarding this issue would be appreciated more than words can say.

Meanwhile...A few chapters in Acts, and cup of coffee (with yummy hazelnut creamer!!!) and Menu Planning this morning has taken my mind off things that aren't really in my control anyway.  Loving my family, cleaning my house & cooking good meals are well within my control, though, and I plan to do it all this week to His glory!

Stone Gable's On the Menu Monday


  1. Stopping by from Stone Gable to check out your menu plan. It looks great, and I found several things that I bookmarked to try later.

    I know I don't know you personally, but as a mother of 6, 4 grown and out on their own now, I feel your pain. Your taking the best route, you put it in God's hands. I said a prayer for you.

  2. Your menu is so yummy and I as so thrilled your joined ON THE MENU MONDAY!
    But, I really want to offer my prayers and some encouragement. I will keep your child in prayer and ask God to work in their life to bring about change, as well as asking God to protect them.
    And I will also pray for you and husband... Peace. I know God can literally blanket you in the Peace of knowing that He is in control!
