fPhoto Friday



Since it's Halloween, I thought I would share a pre-Halloween picture I took a couple weeks ago just to make sure his costume fit!




Of course you knew that I would pick a photo of my son! I took this picture on Thursday as he was chasing me through the kitchen! My favorite part is his reflection in the stove!

You guessed it! He is walking! Although right now his preferred mode of transportaion is crawling seeing is how he doesn't quite get hurt as much!

OMGosh..............

I just can not believe how fast my baby is growing! He is not a normal 9 month old just in case you didn't know it. He is so much bigger than kids his age and most kids older than he is. Go figure!

FYI.............If you get a flu shot.....never ever pick up 25 pounds and carry it for a while! My arm is killing me, but hey, whatcha gonna do?

As I type this, he is asleep on the couch snoring away. Lol It's hard to believe that he takes up an entire couch cushion now. It seems just like yesterday he was an itsy bitsy baby who barely fit there.

Now he is crawling everywhere and he even took his first step all by himself on Saturday. Although after he did it I think it kinda shocked him because he stood there for a minute after he did it and then just fell to the floor...like what in the world did I just do? Nick and I just looked at each other and he said, "Did you just see that?" Thank goodness that I did! Just wished that I had my video camera on!

Anywhoo.....I love you so much, Andrew! I hope you always remember that no matter what! You are such an adorable child and I thank my God everyday for trusting me to take care of you!

Love
Mommy

A Psalm of David...................

My Awana lesson for tonight is about Psalm 139. Have you read this?? OMGosh is it a great lesson to be taught! It's called "Ten Facts About That." Although I taught it to my kids a couple years ago, I have a new group who have yet to hear it. So I find myself studying really hard again to make sure what I tell them is understood and that they take it to heart. Sometimes I find it hard to teach 3rd and 4th graders. I find it hard to think of things to keep their attention. When you put 25 kids in a small room, it definitely gets hard! So please pray that I come across as sincere and that they see the Lord through me. Because after all, He is the one teaching through me.

I want them to understand that no matter what they learn in school, college, or wherever they go, that they know that God is their Creator. In this Psalm that David wrote was a praise of God's creation of people. David knew that God's creation is awesome. Here are my 10 facts about that!

1. God knows when I sit down. (vs.2)

2. God knows when I stand up. (vs.2)

3. God knows my every thought. (vs.2)

4. God knows where I am and where I'm going. (vs.3)
Thank the LORD he knows because sometimes I find myself going in circles!

5. God knows every word I say. (vs.4)
That freaks alot of kids out! Just ask them about it! He knows what your gonna say before you say it! Now if I could just get Him to stop me before I open "MY" big mouth sometimes! :-)

6. I can never get so lost that God doesn't know exactly where I am. (vs.7-9)

7. God guides me with His hand. (vs.10)

8. God knitted me together before I was born. (vs.13,15)
Hello? Did you know that if all your blood vessels were laid end to end, they would stretch more than 60,000 miles? Come on......that is totally awesome!

9. God has a calendar of my life, with all the spaces filled in. (vs.16)
You know, when I think back to before Nick and I got married, I used to think that Lord would come back before I got married. Then after we got married I thought that He would come back before I had a child. Well....guess what?????? I was wrong! Like it says, HE has a calendar for every ones life. It's on His timeline and nobody knows His plans. That's why we should just live each day like He's coming back tomorrow.

10. God thinks about me all the time. His thoughts number more than the sand. (vs.17-18)

Psalm 139:14 is my favorite! "I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; wonderful are Your works, and my soul knows it very well." (NASB)

God loves us so much that He know everything about us!

Now............if I can just teach the way I have it laid out in my head.

Thank goodness for my Awana lesson book!
