Well, that's two down...

I felt sorry for Matt yesterday when he called to ask what we were having for dinner... I told him I had potatoes baking and planned to make some chicken too. He said, "anything but chicken, what else is on this week's menu?" I replied, "I didn't make my menu today." He said, "You didn't post your menu? It's Monday!"
Normally he could just get me to switch days since I had the week planned. So, I didn't post my menu this week! I ran in the store and grabbed a couple of steaks and voila... dinner. No chicken for my spoiled hubbie. (There is chicken in the crockpot for tonight though ssh!)
So, why didn't I make a menu? Beats me. I don't know if I am just in a funk, or if I'm thinking of other things...
Last night I kept thinking... It's Tuesday tomorrow... What am I forgetting? Well, time travel Tuesday for goodness sakes! No travel plans today. Annie has obviously vacated the meme for the day! sorry :o(. I just completely forgot.
I've been trying to get a lot of cleaning and organizing done so that next weekend when I'm packing things will be at least clean. I have learned that if I put it all off until the last few days I am one unhappy momma!
I went to the church this morning for prayer. They have prayer on Tuesday mornings every week. I didn't make it last week and almost didn't this week either! Isabelle woke up the instant we said "amen" last night to go to sleep. I dozed off and woke up hearing Matt praying over her. It was really odd. I am so very cold natured. He brought her into our bed and I instantly felt so hot I threw off all the blankets and could feel the cold air from the air conditioning blowing on me, but I was still hot. He continued to pray over her for some time and the instant she fell asleep it was immediately very very cold. I don't know if you believe in spiritual warfare, but I do... and there was a battle fought (and won) last night in our room. I left the house to go to the church and the instant I went out it started raining. I was glad I went, it was a good thing...
So, tonight Emelia has a couple of ballgames. I should have prayed for the rain to continue :o).
I'm off to hit my to do list for the remainder of the afternoon...
  1. vacuum rug in dining room
  2. vacuum rug in front room
  3. vacuum rug in den
  4. make my bed (yes ya'll I didn't do it first thing this morning, but it was a rough night!)
  5. finish laundry
  6. clean bathroom in my room
That's about it. I'm setting my timer now!

What a neat testimony from last night! I definitely believe in spiritual warfare and I believe you can see (or feel) physical effects of it. For me, the more I'm "tuned in to" God, the more I feel/see/hear.

Anyway...thanks for sharing.

ChupieandJ'smama said...

I do believe in spiritual warfare and I'm grateful you shared your story with us. I'm in a funk too. I hope yours lifts soon. Enjoy your chicken. I have no idea what we're having and it's already 4pm :(

Penless Thoughts said...

Oh yes, Annie, you know that I believe!!! Victory!!!

busy, busy.. I came over today looking for the TTT I haven't been able to do it in a few weeks because of life being busy but today I thought I would jump back in.. turst me I totally understand life getting busy. I didn't do MPM in weeks either..
I had two kids that kept waking up all night long I went to bed at 1:30am and at 4am to 6:30am I was awake either with Little Man or with Sweet Pea.. I was so tired this morning. I got the kids off to school and Little Man was still sleeping so I went back to bed and we both slept till 10:30am. I had our MOPS group 2nd meeting of the year today and i missed it because I was so tired. Missed the 1st one because it was the day DH ended up in the hospital. The sleep felt so good though.
Have fun at the ball games.

If only we could 'see' what is happening in the Spiritual realm eh? Like those chariots on the hills...it does sound like a spiritual thing indeed. Feel to pray the blood of Jesus over you and your family. The blood is our biggest covering! You are covered. If Matt likes chicken again soon, I made this yummy chicken puff pastry thingy with cream cheese yesterday - simple but tasty (it's on my blog - of course!)

Karen said...

Wow, it took me 3 attempts to get that post on...the battle persists - BUT (sings) the Victory belongs to the Lord!

Emily said...

Good luck getting everything together- you sure do seem to have a lot on your plate- I know it must be God's hand helping you along or it would be impossible to accomplish all you do. I start a bible study tonight and I will make sure to pray for you and your entire family to just have peace and comfort.

Tori :) said...

Thank you for sharing your experience last nite. gave me chills.

Have a great week!!

LoveMyStarr said...

Wow! I've felt and seen some really strange things. And I can always count on the moment we start having victory in our life, the enemy attacks even more.

I'm reading a fiction book right now that is about spiritual warfare: Dark Star - Confessions of a Rock Star Idol. We just never really know the things that are happening underneath our line of sight.

JennaG said...

Umm, why does almost every line of your blog have a black line going through it--is it just me? I've been in a funk with my menu planning too--could you tell? I have forgotten all about it the past couple weeks--besides I feel like we are having the same stuff over and over anyway. You are one busy momma--we are trying to get ready for our trip too--it is a lot of work to get ready to leave for a week. Take care--and it's completely not fair that Emelia has no homework. I totally think that's the way it should be.

Given Grace said...

What an awesome testimony!! Thanks for sharing it and for giving all the glory to God!

God is so good.

Julie aka Gigi... said...

Wow, that is awesome! (the spiritual warfare/hot/cold thing)

Kayelyn said...

Thank you for sharing your testimony. I am grateful for the Lord in my life. He has worked many miracles on our behalf, too.

Theresa said...

Your belief is inspiring to me. I believe God is always their just sometimes He lets His pressence be known.
Thanks for sharing your story

Rachel said...

Hi, annie, I have a very serious prayer request for you and yours...The devil has stirred a few people in our church and is causing discord against the Pastor. Please pray that God gets the glory and FAST!
I am sorry I haven't commented or anything lately. I now have my back out and well, everything! *sigh*
Did you get my new blog address?
Love you
rachel

gail@more than a song said...

I wondered what happened to your menu! There's always plenty of other weeks to get it done though. And good for you with all your organizing, I know y'all are getting excited! I'm excited for you!
Spiritual warfare is a very real thing, you're right.

Nancy Face said...

That was quite an amazing experience last night. And such a very busy day for you today! I hope you have a peaceful night with plenty of good sleep! :)

You are SO NICE to your hubby! :)

Barbara H. @ Stray Thoughts said...

I came over a few times today to check for TTT and am glad to know it was just forgotten and that everyone is OK. :) I know sometimes we who participate are too busy to do it on a given week, so it's understandable that you have those too-busy-to-do-it times, too.

Hope everyone gets a good night's rest.

Luke's Mom said...

Annie,

I definitely believe in spiritual warfare. We have experienced it in a way that most people will never begin to imagine. I believe that satan tried to steal, kill and destroy our families when he killed our precious children. I know that both Izzy and Luke are alive right now, but it is only because God chose to bring them back to life.
I have told many people that I've been in the battle of my life these past 3 years. I recently read an excellent book by Beth Moore called Get out of the Pit. I told a friend I'm ready to get out of the Pit and never go back in, though I realize it will be a battle.

I am praying that God will continue to give you His amazing strength. I'm also praying that this vacation that you are going on will be the most wonderful time that your family has ever experienced, a time of healing and joy.

Love in Christ,
Sue

Been there.. done that! It is real! God bless,

IRENE said...

Well, I believe!

justabeachkat said...

I believe!

I guess we all get tired of chicken sometimes. What a sweetie you were to make the change for him.

Hope you have a wonderful day.

Hugs to Izzy Bear and you!

Carrie! :o) said...

Oh Annie, I'm feelin' ya on the MPM. The last few weeks I haven't done one to post. It's strange. I'm not in a cooking funk. I've been grocery shopping and cooking, but just didn't feel like sharing, LOL. I have no clue as to why, though. The only thing I can think of is that since I don't have nearly as much computer time these days, I don't wanna waste my posts on simple stuff like that. Who knows, LOL!

Have a good rest of the week!

Jenileigh said...

I am so gratful that Matt prayed through the warfare and had victory! Know that I am intercessing for you dear friend. My how I have missed you, everyone. {{{{Annie & Family}}}}

Debi said...

Oh my...you do spoil your hubby, don't you? But then they deserve it, don't they?

Jill@Who Could Ask for Anything More said...

Yes, I do believe in spiritual warfare. I'm just catching up and checking in to say hi.

Coach J said...

I believe in spiritual warfare, too.
I'm doing to exact same thing at my house this week. Ugh! Why do I feel like the whole house must be organized before I leave? :) It doesn't help that we're having people staying in our house while we're gone. I'm just hoping they won't look up and see all the dust up there!!

sheryl said...

(((HUGS))) I've had weeks like that...everything is just "off".
Glad Izzy finally fell asleep...hope you got some serious rest afterwards!
Praying for you, my friend!
Sheryl

Michelle said...

I have days like that too where I just completely forget something I was supposed to do!

Stacy at Exceedingly Mundane said...

Taking a break from the menu and Time Travel can be a very good thing. Go with it and enjoy the break. :)

Lauren said...

You are such a sweet wife! I personally love chicken and hate steak.

Irritable Mother said...

You know, I actually checked in to see where we were going to be traveling this week!
Instead of TTT, I posted an entry from the book I'm writing and from the comments I received, I can see it was the right thing to do.
God really is in control of all things, isn't He!
