My little one is learning so much right now. Today I was sitting in his bedroom while he was playing and my legs were stretched out. He went in his drawer and found his shoes and tried to put them on my feet. Ugh...he just melts my heart. He has found his little nose hose and has decided while eating he will just stick his finger in his nose and keep it there. I just laugh and's too funny to correct right now. He knows commands like: shut the door, knock on the door, throw something away, get a book, ex. He loves to have all different kinds of bottles (water bottle, milk gallon, ex.) and put the tops on the correct bottle. I find him learning everyday. It's hard because he will not sit still for me to read to him, so I feel like he isn't learning. However, every week he shows me he is learning something new. I love this boy!

I have been reading a little scripture devotional from Today was about faith. There are some levels of faith...1st level is no faith...2nd level I seem to fall into lately... second level of faith is little faith. HEre is the excerpt from the devotional

As we see in the passage in Matthew, little faith is a worried faith, worried about tomorrow and occupied with lack instead of being occupied with God.

While people with little faith believe God cares, their focus is wrong. They are concentrating on, “What am I going to eat? What am I going to wear? How am I going to get by?”

Now, those are all legitimate things; and your Father knows you have need of those things. So rather than focusing on your lack and being worried about tomorrow, pulling tomorrow’s clouds over today’s sunshine, let your focus be on God and His sufficiency, His care, and His abundant love.

Do not live a life of little faith.

I just read about spiritual intimacy in a marriage. How do you create it besides reading and praying together? They made some good points in this article. You hold hands when you pray together, you do a devotional together that has discussion back and forth, you go out with other Christian couples,speak up when you see your spouse growing in spiritual areas...compliment him/her. You find out what God is wanting to do through your marriage, hmmm I wonder what he DOES want to do? I think Jason and I are continually on a road of being refined in our marriage. We are not ever happy with where we are at. We have come a very long way, yet still have miles and kilometers to go. What is God's ultimate plan for us? We often think sometimes it's a ministry to other marriages, or I think it's just to show people around us of God's faithfulness and blessings when we obey what he says. I don't know, but I love what the end of the article said: the greatest gift you can give your spouse is to NEVER stop growing spiritually yourself! Great advice!

Which is it?

I heard Jon from Jon and Kate Plus 8 say that "His family is his priority." I am glad to hear that however, having been through such a hard road in our marriage, I would have liked my husband to have said, " My marriage is my priority." I believe that in order for your family to be strong, first and foremost, your marriage needs to be strong. Family is important don't get me wrong, but when your marriage is falling apart like theirs is, your family needs to be what you are pouring your time and effort into.

Am I the only one here...please tell me NO!

I recently read an article about Jon and Kate (From Jon and Kate Plus 8).I must say, I am a big fan of the show. Jon had recently said that he has male and female friends and just because he's famous he isn't going to stop being friends with females. Okay, he's right, just because he's famous maybe not stop being friends with females. But about because you are married you stop your female friendships. Honestly, I had friends that were males in high school and college and we would go shopping together, tanning together, sporting events together, ex. However, when I got married, those "guy" friendships stopped as far as going out alone together. Now that I am married, we try and have couple friends vs. male or female friends. Am I the only one here who thinks thats way? Do you think it's okay if you are married to go out with a "guy" friend alone? Or have your husband go out with a "girl" friend alone? Seriously, what is Jon thinking?

Day filled

Today is a day filled with too many emotionally draining events. I need to workout and get a release of all these things going on, but too bad life's daily agenda won't let me. Hmmmm prayer should work better, I have time to pray while I go about my day and its many tasks.
