I also wanted some advice from y'all. As you can see, Darth Vader has moved in with us and he, of course, wants a Star Wars themed room. We've been discussing redecorating the kid's rooms and I was wanting a train themed room as Eli, I mean Darth Vader, currently has a wrought iron headboard with a train on it. I am not crazy at all about the whole space thing. What do I do? Do I suck it up and embrace this 4 year old wish or keep working on the campaign to convince Eli he wants a train room? Any thoughts? Suggestions?
Finally, I wanted to let y'all know I started a new Bible study this week. It is Priscilla Shirer's "One in a Million". I had to take this pic because as I sat down at the table to start it on Monday Kate said, "Mommy's Bible. Mommy's milk." Yes, darlin' that is Mommy's Bible and Mommy's "milk". Ha! The sustenace which sustains me like manna from Heaven! It is a Diet Pepsi this week instead of a Diet Coke b/c I forgot to pick up the Diet Cokes in the back of the store and Pepsi had a display on the way to the checkout. One word y'all: L.A.Z.Y. Oh well, I am not picky as long as it keeps that caffeine flowing through my veins!
Speaking of manna from Heaven, this study looks at when God led the Isrealites out of slavery in Egypt to the Promised Land and focuses on the things we need to break free from to experience a greater relationship with God. I'm only on Day 3 but am looking forward to the days to come. The study is not as detailed as some I have done in the past, and that is really a good thing for me right now being in a season where my Bible study time is often spent answering math questions and cleaning up toothpaste off the playroom floor. If you are in the season I am in and feel like you can't even attempt Bible study I think this is a great one to try. Later, when my brain is working, I will try to share spiritual things I've learned from it. :)
BTW, this is so bad of me, but I cannot do this study without getting the "One in a Million" song from the movie Miss Congeniality stuck in my head. Do you know what I'm talking about? The part where they are dancing in the pageant. It's right after that where she falls flat on her face and gets her head thing all tangled up. For some odd reason, that song seems to fit me and this study perfectly. Just when I am strutting my stuff spiritually I have a habit of falling flat on my face too....
We are packing up to head back to Panama City this weekend to visit our families. I'm so excited my sister and nephew (and hopefully my brother-in-law) will be coming too and we will get to watch the Super Bowl together! I can't tell you enough how much I appreciate everyone's prayers and sweet words of encouragement. I continue to covet those prayers as we go through this time of grieving and great change. Do any of you have weekend plans you are excited about? Anybody having Super Bowl parties?
P.S. I've done 15 days of the Shred and today it paid off. Daisy escaped and I chased her down and NOT in the jeep!!! Woo-hoo! :)
