Playing in the Leaves

The crisp cool fall air sneaks through the cracked door, I slip into a big comfy sweatshirt and my slippers, calling Maverick back inside. Our weekend was slow and fast all at once (like this life tends to be these days). The kids played in the leaves, inevitably scattering them back across the yard. Other than that, we mostly just snuggled inside with our sick little girl, and currently Adam has taken the children so I can edit some pictures. Speaking of, I better get to that.

First, however, some of my favorite reads from the past week or so.
12 Disciples for Every Rich Young Ruler
Being a Working Mother Means Always Having to Say You're Sorry
Living More with Less
Things for my Stuff
Why Poor People's Decisions Make Perfect Sense
*(for sure read that last one)

Book wise, I finished Jesus Freak: Feeding Healing Raising the Dead (recommended by my soul sister/twin separated at birth Shannan). I loved it y'all.

I also read The Silver Star, and I'm currently reading The Circle (currently terrifying me a little bit, it's a little too realistic).

On Thursday night, Adam and I (and a few friends) went to see Catching Fire. We went to the 10:30pm show, which means we rolled back home at about 2am. The experience taught me three important lessons.
1. I love The Hunger Games and cant stop thinking about the movie, and my friends Peeta and Katniss.
2. I need this, and Katniss is my hero. Also, I would never ever ever survive the Hunger Games.
3. 10:30pm is entirely too late to start a movie. I am no longer a teenager, and I'm pretty sure I still haven't caught up on my sleep.


  1. Such sweet pictures of the babies!!!

  2. You are so cool. I didn't even think about going to see the Hunger Games that late. I am sure I will take the kidgets over this break. Sending love and lots of leaves.

  3. Late movies also mean squealing teenage girls... yeah I'll go see it early in the morning when they are all sleeping!

  4. Found your blog today via Flower Patch Farmgirl. I love the way that you are allowing God to use you in my home state. Since my son started attending college at Georgia State Univeristy and living right there in downtown ATL (5 Points), I have fallen in love with the possibility of doing inner-city ministry there as well. Who knows, maybe God will be moving me and my husband to the area in the future?

    Currently, we are ministering in our own small town...trying to bridge together the divide between cultures within our little rural town that divides communities by the railroad tracks.

    You are an inspiration to me and I can't wait to follow along with your story. I'll be praying for you.

    1. We are super-close to Georgia State :-) and you guys should totally move to the area, we highly recommend our neighborhood :-) Seriously though, we love it! And thanks for prayer and following along.


I LOVE hearing from you. Thank-you for reading and interacting, and being the best!
