Miscellany Monday

{ONE} I feel my Faith being pushed. Being testing, being strained even. And I am in awe and great appreciation for every single second of it. I know in my heart that there can be no spiritual growth without tests and trials. And with every good and happy and perfect thing that comes our way, another trial and test of my Faith follows. I’m doing a fabulous study by Kay Arthur, Priscilla Shirer, and Beth Moore called Faithful, Abundant, True with my friend Courtney. The first several days have been all about Faith and the testing of our Faith. I’m feeling myself dying to really dig into the word again. And I’m intending to post a deeper and more drawn out post on this subject in the coming days.

{TWO} I watched the first hour of the documentary The Beautiful Truth last night. Wow. I still have about 30 minutes left in it, but I saw enough last night to make my decision. Our family will be going Organic. I told the husband to watch it and I’m hoping that today he’ll get around to seeing it on Netflix. It covered everything from how Food Additives to the danger of the fillings in our teeth. Made me stop and think about what I’ve been putting in my body and what I’ve been feeding my family. Again, I’ll be keeping my blog updated as we make the move to organic.

{THREE} Little Man is repeating almost everything these days. It seems like we just woke up one morning and he decided that he was ready to start talking. And he hasn’t slowed up. Last night, out of the blue, I was telling him what we were having for supper and he clearly repeated it back to me. “Butterbeans, Corn, Pork chop…” So fun! And he is SO independent. He has to do everything on his own. Has to feed  himself, brush his own teeth, pick up his own toys…it’s amazing how fast he is growing before my very eyes.

{FOUR} We have been making the most of technology and the webcam lately. Alabama had their first football Saturday night, but it was only on PPV. The hubs couldn’t get PPV out there where he’s at, so we hooked up the webcam and situated it in front of the TV so he could watch the game with us. It was fun. He got to watch the game, it felt like he was here with us. We’ve also had supper with him a few times. Setting the computer up near the table while we have our meals and he has his. So we still can talk and socialize over our food just as if he is here with us. I know it’s not the same, but it is definitely making it easier on all of us to feel like he’s a part of our day to day.

{FIVE} I am in an insanely good mood this morning. Little Man slept in, the words are flowing freely as I type, and the sun in shining in the window as I sit. I’m looking out at the yard in front of me and I’m thankful for how blessed I really am. How fortunate our little family is and how in love with the life I’ve been given I am.

{SIX} I am about to begin the process of planning a 2nd birthday party! We’re still debating on a Halloween Party or a Toy Story Party. Little Man’s birthday is October 27, but the party is going to be on the 30th.  I have a lot more ideas for things to do with a Halloween party than a Toy Story party, but we’ll decide closer to time.

Hope you all have a great Monday!

If you haven’t been by, go check out the latest progress on my Project 365! I’m starting on week #2 and  I’m loving every single second of it! Let me know what you think, and feel free to leave ideas of what I should photograph. I love getting feedback and inspiration from my readers.
