Restoring Life in my Living Room

Romans 12:2
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. 

This was the first chapter we study at my retreat this weekend.
We have so much clutter in our lives and don't know how to get rid of it. 
Even dough I'd been Christian for many years I keep clutting my self with garbage.
This weekend I'd decided to let God help me to get rid of what's hindering my walk with Him. 

I took some pics to remember the place where we gather to receive the word of God and make new friends.

Psalm of David

 1 The LORD is my shepherd;
         I shall not want.
 2 He makes me to lie down in green pastures;
         He leads me beside the still waters.
 3 He restores my soul;
         He leads me in the paths of righteousness
         For His name’s sake.
 4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
         I will fear no evil;
         For You are with me;
         Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
 5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
         You anoint my head with oil;
         My cup runs over.
 6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
         All the days of my life;
         And I will dwell[a] in the house of the LORD

Tomorrow will be my first day of Fasting and I've been reading about it.
 I found this article with some helpfull teaching about fasting...

The enemy makes you a target because he knows that fasting is the most powerful of all Christian disciplines and that God may have something very special to show you as you wait upon Him and seek His face. Satan does not want you to grow in your faith, and will do anything from making you hungry and grumpy to bringing up trouble in your family or at work to stop you. Make prayer your shield against such attacks.
Do not become so caught up in praying for yourself and others that you forget about simply reverencing and praising God. True spiritual fasting focuses on God. Center your total being on Him, your attitudes, your actions, your motives, desires, and words. This can only take place if God and His Holy Spirit are at the center of our attention. Confess your sins as the Holy Spirit brings them to your attention and continue to focus on God and God alone so that your prayers may be powerful and effective.
From the Campus Crusade for Christ.

Mathew 6:18
"so that you do not appear to men to be fasting, but to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly.

Joe 2:12
"Now, therefore," says the LORD, "Turn to Me with all your heart, With fasting, with weeping, and with mourning."

1Corintians 7:5
Do not deprive one another except with consent for a time, that you may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again so that Satan does not tempt you because of your lack of self-control.

Special Times with my Little ones ❤

Point Loma Old Lighthouse.

The day wasn't as clear but it was nice enough to take my kids for a little ride, so I decided to take them to San Diego's old lighthouse, which was built in 1855, it closed down in 1891, now it is a museum, and after that we had a little bit of time to visit Rosecrans National Cemetery.

Here are some of the many pics we took...
