"Be thankful. Dwell on the good...

...and lovely. Live a life of service to others. Rejoice. Count your blessings. Learn contentment in God's good, and acceptable, and perfect will for you! Never allow discontentment to kill your marriage."

~Lori Alexander

The quote above is from The Transformed Wife. You can find it on THIS post. I encourage you to read it if you are married or plan to be married one day! Such wisdom there. I don't always agree with Lori 100% on things (for instance I am more Reformed in my thinking doctrinally...and she is not ~ although she'll quote Spurgeon, MacArthur and Piper who, like me, are believers in the Doctrines of Grace!)....but for the most part, I do. She is a sister in Christ who loves the Lord and is doing her best to mentor young ladies who read her blog. If you haven't read there warned, she will step on your toes ~ but for the most part she is *right* and women need to hear what she has to say. Be sure to check out past posts too....there's a lot to choose from and much wisdom to be gleaned from her words!

Can I just throw in here....this is two posts this month already! I am on a *roll*! Haha! 

It is a super cold, windy Saturday here in Western PA. There is snow/frost on the ground and it's almost noon. Chris has been working at an auction all morning and I taught a spin class at the Y. Now I am home and showered and have some housework to do. I get to meet my newest niece today (Chris's brother has two boys and just had his first girl!). I am very excited! Her mom says she is the most "angelic, sweetest, content baby ever". *smile* I can't wait to snuggle her all up! I may not be able to give her back! ;)

Tonight, our local Y (where I workout and teach classes) is having an auction to raise money. People have donated items from all over town! There are 92 things to auction off (and some are multiple things put together!). I have been helping prepare for that and will be helping at the auction tonight as well. The theme is "Clue" (remember that board game?). It should be fun...and although I'll be busy ~ I think I'll still have a good time! They do these annually...but I have never been to one before. So, we'll see how it goes! :)

So, I have things to do and places to time to sit here any longer! :o) I hope you have a fantastic weekend....and if you haven't yet (and if you *want* to) check out my post from just a couple days ago!!
