October is here and this month is full of activity. Have I mentioned how much I enjoy this time of year?
I love Saturdays. A day that runs at a slower pace. A day where I can be somewhat lazy if I want to be and this day is full of great SEC football games! Cheering for my Vols today!
Usually, one of my Bff's comes over with her family and we cook great food and watch the game together but this Saturday we don't play an SEC opponent (but every game is important) and in our area this day is set apart for Old Time Saturday. Our church has a booth set up to sell various things to raise money for a mission trip for next year. My friend will be there most of the day and I have a few things I would like to get accomplished today. SO, no Saturday menu for the game.
Tomorrow we are having a church wide study on Radical by David Platt. I have a trip planned for next weekend. The week after that my oldest turns 23! Yikes! Oh, and next week I am starting my Christmas shopping. I can't believe I just typed that last sentence.
Having adult children kind of takes the fun out of Black Friday shopping. They want techie things and gift cards. I do like buying their stocking stuffers. I spend too much money on stocking stuffers but that is their favorite thing to do on Christmas morning. Amazon was my favorite place to shop last season.
Just to throw this out there for those who like to watch Christmas movies etc... I follow a blog that I absolutely love, It's A Wonderful Movie. She just put up this years schedule for all the holiday movies. Check it out. :)
I hope that whatever you are doing this Fall weekend that you have fun. We all need some fun and relaxing moments on the weekends.
If you happen to be reading this and are going through a difficult season, I pray that God will show up for you in a BIG way today. I pray that all your needs will be met.. I pray that you will feel God's presence surrounding you and that you will have a peace that floods your heart and soul! God is faithful, good, & He is your help and Deliverer! Trust Him.
