The Home Keeper’s Journal

     I have begun participating in The Home Keeper's Journal over at Christian Home Keeper dot org. Here is my journal entry for 2/23/10:

Here’s what’s happening….

In My Kitchen… bread, oranges, rice, crackers and chicken.
With The Children…
Getting Senior son registered to take the CHESPE next month and trying to keep him focused on studying for the test. Junior son is not into doing school work right now and just wants to work on his Go-Kart. It is raining again this week after a beautiful sunny weekend.
What I’m Reading…
I will be writing a review on my Review blog in April so I am currently reading The Twilight Gospel by Dave Roberts. I can not talk about this on right now however, I just finished reading The Choice by Suzanne Woods Fisher. What a great read that was.
What I Have Been Learning…
That I am a very impatient person, I want answers now when I ask a question, I want the kids to do their chores now as soon as I tell them, I want family members and friends who are not saved saved now. I have been praying extra hard for the Lord to give me patience because it is so hard to wait for “God’s time”. Especially when you know in your heart that His return is very, very near.
What I’ve Been Noticing…
My mind keeps bringing picture memories back to view all of my children when they were very young. I view special events that happened to them, I see them playing with friends that they still are friends with and some who they have lost and grew apart from.
On The Back Burner Of My Mind…
Spring cleaning, I am not looking forward to taking down all of the state plates and pictures on my wall to clean them.
In The Deepest Darkest Recesses…
Keeping all of my deep fears and anxieties out of the reach of everyone.

Blessings; Tammy


  1. Hi, Tammy~

    I used to be a very impatient person and wanted things done NOW. but I have learned that the more I want things to happen, the longer it seems that God makes me wait, so now, I just go with the flow and when God thinks it should happen, it does!

    Bless you, precious one~

  2. You are absolutely right Laura,I too have found this to be true.

    God Bless,Tammy♥

  3. I am touched by what you are writing here Tammy. It's not easy to be a housekeeper. I too, myself is the housekeeper in the house. I imagine to be like you someday, to be a strong woman with lots of patience. I am impatient myself, I have to pray too. It's hard to wait sometimes for God's time, but when I pray, I suddenly realized that things happen so quickly and smoothly. I guess its God's timing. BTW, got an award for you: http://melcoleofpausa.blogspot.com/2010/03/i-got-sunshine-award.html Hope you'll check this out.

  4. Hi MelCole,
    It is hard to be patient but when we pray, God hears our cries. But I know that His will will be done when He knows we are ready and/or when we understand what he is teaching/telling us.

    Thank you so much for the award, I am flattered and honored MelCole.

    God Bless you dear one,
