21 Future

21 FUTURE is a call for our church to a major time of prayer and fasting for 21 days. From January 6, beginning at sundown, until sundown on January 27, go before the Lord to fast, pray, and listen to God about your future, your family's future, a friend's future, our nation's future, and our church's future.

I decided to participate in my church's time of fasting.  
With it being the start of the new year, I pray it is a time for me to renew my spirit.  

I decided to fast from all social media (blogging, twitter, facebook, pinterest).  
It's no secret I love a good blog.  I have tons that I read daily.
I have had major conviction over the fact that I will bury my head in my laptop reading silly posts when I should be reading/studying The Word.

I pray that I become closer to the Lord and be a better wife, mother, sister, daughter, friend.  

Psalm 51:10

King James Version (KJV)
10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.

Christmas Recap

We had a great Christmas!

The night before the boys were so excited to leave Santa his glass of chocolate milk and one cookie.    Jacob didn't want to leave any more in fear he would waste them.  :)

My three loves snug as a bug reading The Night Before Christmas.

We heard Jacob at 5AM Christmas morning!!  He had emptied both his and Levi's stocking and already opened two presents.  Not good!  Momma was not a fan!
I know he was excited, but that's a tad early to start the day.  Especially when we were hosting Christmas lunch with my parents and Beth's family so a long day was ahead.
I know it tortured Jacob to wait so we decided to let him open his gifts, and let Levi sleep and he'd open his later.

The other kid table :)

I got Kate this, hehe :)

We had a wonderful time despite Luke & Jacob's faces :)

Ready for 2013!
