Making Your Home Sing Monday Linky Party


Making your home sing Mondays


Welcome to the Making Your Home Sing Monday linky party!  Every day you are doing something to make your house into a home for yourself and your family (if you have one). 

My point with each Monday post is, what are YOU doing or going to do today to make your home sing?  It can be an attitude or an action. So have fun, do some blog hopping, and link up!  Thanks!


Topics can include marriage, parenting, encouraging women, organization, cleaning, saving money, our behavior and attitudes, homemaking, homeschooling, recipes.....the opportunities are endless.

Note: We had 141 linkups last week!  I think it's a little low due to the holidays but I so appreciate those of you that linked up!  You guys are awesomely amazing and amazingly awesome!  Don't forget to visit one another and try to leave a comment on at least one blog to encourage someone today!  :)  

On the left sidebar (down towards the bottom) is the "Making Your Home Sing! Monday" button which I'd love for you to grab and paste into your post!  It is a "no-follow" button.

Another month is coming to an end and a new one begins.

Endings and beginnings.

I love the positivity of that.  It sounds so much better than beginnings and endings.

One month ends and a new one begins and we get closer and closer to spring and summer.

Woooohoooo!

I need to get my house in shape for summer and I need to get my body in shape too.  This means I had better put down the m&m's and start exercising again!

My doctor said that walking will help my back so I've been doing some of that but I think I'm ready to get a bit more serious about exercise again.

I think I had also better get serious about this linky party.  So let's party on!

What are you doing or going to do today to make your home sing? Please go here for instructions and/or ideas and come back here to link up to join us today!

Morning!  I know that I keep talking about how time is flying by but it IS!!!!

Spring is really just around the corner.  I used to garden and I would spend the winter months pouring over gardening books and planning what new flowers to add and looking forward to getting out there.  

I don't have a beautiful garden anymore.  I miss the garden but I don't miss the work.  :)  My garden was huge.

Now I just enjoy the flowers from the one rose bush that we have out there and the daisies. Personally, I think the daisies are trying to take over.  They are very pushy, those daisies.

Sometimes we look so far into the future with expectation that we forget to enjoy what's right in front of us.

So many wonderful things happening around us can be overlooked because our focus is off.

Is your focus off?

Mine is, sometimes.  So I will try and enjoy each day and be thankful in it and for it, and make my home sing this week.  Care to join me?

I have my days mixed up.  Today is Saturday as I write this post, and I thought it was Friday all day long. 

That in itself is weird because I finally went to the doctor on Friday because my back pain has flared up again these last two weeks.  So you'd think I would remember what day it is, lol!

Anyway, it hurts to sit here and type for any long period of time, so I am just going to go ahead and get this party going!  Thanks for stopping by and linking up and have a great week.

I can't believe it's February already.  It's FEBRUARY, y'all!

That means that spring is truly right around the corner. 

Whoa.

Sometimes when you're in the midst of winter and snow and ice and cold it doesn't feel like spring will ever come, does it?

But it does.  It always does.

I mean, it does unless you live in Antarctica or something and if you DO then you are on your own......

When we are going through a difficult winter in our lives, struggling with stress and pain and difficulty it feels like spring will never come.

Those are the times when we have to hang onto the promise of spring.

We have to hang onto the promise that the winter will thaw and the sun will come out and the flowers will bloom and new life will be everywhere.

We have to hang onto the hope that one day we will again walk in the sunshine and feel the warmth of it on our heads and feel the joy of it in our hearts, and know that spring has truly come.

Wouldn't it be silly of us to walk around in the warm springtime wearing parkas and winter boots, gloves and blankets and preparing as if we were facing a cold winter?

Spring is the time for shedding our winter.


Are you ready to shed YOUR winter?

Are you ready to let go of your pain, and hurts and frustrations and embrace the promise of spring?

Are you willing to embrace the newness of spring or do you still insist on holding onto the bitter cold of winter?

There's a lot of beauty out there in the world, even in winter.  There's a lot of beauty out there in the world, even in the midst of pain and difficulties.

You can embrace the cold, or you can embrace the warmth.  You can live in the promise of spring or the bitterness of winter.

I know that life isn't perfect.  MY life certainly isn't perfect.  But I have so many blessings and I miss seeing them when I'm only looking at the winter.

I also know that despite the things going on it my life, in YOUR life, we have an amazing God who loves us and truly has a plan that He is working in our lives.

Plans that we can trust, because He loves us.  He brings the promise of spring each and every day.

So if you're in the middle of a bitter winter right now, remember the promise of spring and look for the beauty all around you.  It's there.  

Sometimes you might have to look a little harder for it, but it's there, like the beauty of the crocus blooming in the snow.

Let go of your winter and embrace the beauty of spring and make your home sing this week!
