Taking a Stand

Our family in October 2010.

Today is Halloween. You probably know that though if you live in the United States. After all, its one of the most popular holidays in this country.

Weekly Menu - 10/31-11/06

I had yesterday off work and we really enjoyed having a full day together as a family. Usually we feel lucky just having an evening all together. It was nice getting to leisurely grocery shop since Casey put the kids to bed so I could shop solo after a fun day of family time. It was relaxing. I picked up a few extra things to stock my pantry. I am attempting to pick up a few items a week that I know I will be needing for Thanksgiving and Christmas meals and baking. My pantry is bulging full now though so I may need to get started on some of that baking already. I doubt anyone will complain.

Begin Reflecting and Weekly Menu

Reflect upon your present blessings of which every man has many - not on your past
 misfortunes, of which all men have some. ~ Charles Dickens

Well, as it turns out fall brings cool weather. This year that didn't happen until mid-October. But, it did arrive. Naturally, our home rapidly grew cooler. I gave in and turned the heat on for the sake of my sleeping little ones. And, what do you know, but the heater didn't work! So the above picture is what I have been wishing for over the last few days. A repair man did show up yesterday but needed a replacement part and said he would be back sometime today to fix it for us.

A Matter of Conviction

My heart has been under a great deal of conviction lately. The soft, gentle guidance by the Spirit is teaching me to slowly but surely conform my will to His. He guides me as a father would guide his child.

Weekly Menu ~ October 10-16

Another Autumn weekend is coming to an end. It is crazy that its close to 80 degrees here in October! But, the weather is still cooler than the stifling heat of the summer.
