Maddie and Caleb~ etc.

Last night was a rough night. Maddie and Caleb were both up....A LOT! I gave Madelyn Tylenol, and Terry gave her cough meds. Caleb ended up getting cough meds., too. Then, Madelyn decided to get up at 5:40. She was having such a fit crying and hollering at me. I finally got it out of her that she just wanted to get in the pack in play (at the end of our bed) and watch some cartoons. I was thinking that it was way to early for her to be up! At least I got to rest a little longer with her in there. I was thankful that we were able to be home today, so that Caleb can get his much needed nap, and I could sneak a nap in to.

Tonight, we went out on a pontoon ride. It was really nice out for the first half of the ride. The temperatures were perfect. We did have on our coats and hats, but we have to get in those rides while we can. We will be taking the speed boat and pontoon out before the end of October. I love looking at the fall colors on the trees. Fall is, by far, my favorite season!!

Tomorrow I have my Bible study in the morning. We are going though one of Beth Moore's studies: Stepping UP...the Psalms of the Assent. It is a great study! It is really showing me that I haven't been making my quiet times with God a priority. There is "homework" of 5 lessons for the week. I have been unfaithful in doing a daily lesson. Our relationship with God is work sometimes. It takes time, obedience, and commitment. It's not that I don't want to spend time in study and prayer...it's that I find too many other things that I need to do, or (as bad as it sounds) want to do. I know that I need to make more of an effort to make the time, and to schedule it in my calendar.

It is extremely pitiful how far behind I am on the study. It just is not working for me right now. But I am just involved to get my mom going. She is getting a lot out of it. And I am glad. Otherwise I would quit.

Isn't Beth Moore studies the best! I love fall too, and I would love to see some pictures from the boat ride and the beautiful trees.

I am right there with ya Sarah, sometimes its so easy to be in the Word and to be spending time with God and other times its not so easy...and God knows that!

Glad you all had fun tonight too and sorry you had such an early start to your morning!!
