october updates

i failed at the photo a day thing, so i suppose that just means that i will probably not do too well on doing it for a year. it doesn't mean that i haven't taken pictures - because i have i've taken alot - i just don't seem to be consistent. one day i'll take none, and the next i'll take like 20. hmmm...

i'm up early for the first time in over a week. i've been sleeping in and getting up when the kids got up. i don't like that - i like my quiet time, time to drink my coffee and prepare for my day. but yesterday jay and i went for a short run and i've noticed that when i go running, the next day i'm more energized and alert to waking up and starting early. i love it.

i am reading this book "The Power of Praying" by Stormie Omartian. i've had this book for years sitting on my bookshelf but recently i have taken it off my shelf and have been skimming through it. there is is this one line from the book . . . "lead me to all that You have for me." and i have included this in my daily prayers because i am learning to have faith in God's plan for me, even if it isn't what i have had planned for myself. i am learning to trust Him and learning to let Him guide me to live the life He has planned for me. because He is my Father and i know that He has so much to give me and offer me - i have to be willing to accept it into my life.

we enjoyed the pumpkin patch this past weekend. it was sweltering hot . . . like 90 degree weather. when we got back to my mom's house we looked more like we got back from the beach than the pumpkin patch :) good times though, good times!

well here are some recent pictures of the last few days :)
