As the year comes to a close let’s take a gander at the top posts of 2019 here on My Joy in Chaos. I took a good portion of the year off so it was interesting to see what made the cut! As usual, this year flew by. I remember when I decided to take …
Spring has sprung and with it our desire to whip our homes into shape after keeping them closed up all winter. Ultimate Bundles knows this and wants to help you make homemaking easier. Each spring they introduce a new Ultimate Homemaking Bundle and today is the day it is open for purchase!

How do you pray for the people and relationships in your life? We pray over our marriage every night and we each pray for each other, but these are regular prayers with our own words. Nothing wrong with that at all, but do you ever pray using scripture?
I searched and searched and while there are hundreds, if not thousands of verses you can use as prayers, I wanted to pull out a manageable number. I started with about twenty verses but as I searched I came across more and more that really spoke to me and I knew I needed to expand my list.

Each summer I have anticipated a larger return, only to wonder why my plants weren’t producing. Oh sure, we’d get a cup or two total, but with the amount of plants we had I thought for sure we should be getting more! I mean, a typical picking produced enough for the kids and I to each get a couple berries – not exactly what we were hoping for!
Only this summer, four years after moving in, did the lesson I didn’t know I needed sink in. And not just about raspberries, but about everything.
We all have these lists of activities or goals we want but most of us seem content keeping them as a wish list. Okay, maybe not so content. We love to daydream of what life would look like if we said goodbye to the daily grind of our 9-5 job and started our own business, or how fulfilling it would be to help out at the teen pregnancy center in town, but that’s as far as we get.
