"A day hemmed in prayer never unravels."
I just want to encourage you to spend some time with God each day. It is such a big help to me as a mommy and all my other roles, as well. If you haven't noticed, there is one book that is perpetually on my blog as one of the books that I am currently reading. It is "Then Sings my Soul." It is a devotional that tells the history behind some of our favorite hymns and gives s scripture verse on which to meditate as well. Today's was especially good, it was about the author of "It is no secret." He was converted at a Billy Graham crusade and was inspired to write the song by none other than John Wayne himself. That's pretty cool. He also wrote "This Ole House" which is one of my favorite gospel songs. (It's on my playlist sung by the Cathedrals.)
Today is Halloween, Brilyn will be a lady bug, Cade a bumble bee. Collin, Brilyn's imaginary friend, is going as a dinosaur. But, don't worry, he's not dangerous, he's just PRETENDING to be a dinosaur. For Halloween. Brilyn wants you to know that.
And, two days till Clara comes! Yesterday, I had Joe buy what I hope to be our last gallon of "store milk" for a very long time.
Also: If any of you interested in buying some WONDERFUL soy candles (No fossil fuels, no lead!) triple scented, double wicked, super lovely scents, let me know. These make great presents and the Christmas Pine is the best smell in the world at Christmas time. I am currently burning the Holiday Memories candle, it smells like a mix of vanilla, orange, clove, and cinnamon. I LOVE it. 18.95 for a large jar candle. (They have the same burn time as the large Yankee Candles, and they are more powerful, they scent my whole house.)
