Our sweet little Liam will be turning 3 months on the 20th. He is a smiley, talkative, hungry little guy who weighs 16 pounds already! He loves when his sister talk to him and tries to talk back. I think he still looks like Anya but I have heard that he looks a lot like Olivia too. It’s so fun to have a boy!

Jesus Plus Nothing Equals Everything!

Jesus Plus Nothing Equals Everything

Ephesians 2:8-9

For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.

We have a hard time accepting that there is nothing we can do to earn our salvation. No good work, or deed is going to save us. When we start adding to the Gospel we become legalists and put more pressure on ourselves. Why is the Gospel not good enough? Let’s make sure we don’t put stipulations on others. You have to have x amount of kids, you have to homeschool, or you have to eat healthy. Those things are NOT the Gospel! We can’t look down on others when they don’t meet our molds that we have formed.

It doesn’t make you a Christian when you attend church, just like going to a garage doesn’t make you an automobile!

I know the Gospel, I know the true living Savior, I know that He died for my sins, I know that I am saved. Why isn’t that enough for some people? Why do we have to make it harder on others when it really shouldn’t be. Jesus is enough He is everything! 

Christ is Christianity and He is all there is to offer because He is all that we need.

-John MacArthur

 

**The 31 days of photography challenge is still going on, but I will continue it on instagram instead now. I think it’s a lot easier to do it over there, and this challenge has taken a different route that I wasn’t expecting. I am not sure what exactly to title this series anymore. It’s more of daily ramblings and thoughts that have popped into my head.**

It’s Better Not To Know

This post is part of the Write 31 Days Challenge hosted by The Nester.

anyamae1

I have been pondering this thought since Sunday at church. So many times I catch myself wanting to know what the future holds, or wanting to move life along a little faster. Why? Why not live in the moment. If I knew what was going to happen tomorrow I would not be living the way that I am today. My attitude and actions would be different! We know only what we need to know and that should be good enough for us. The Lord holds tomorrow and beyond. What a comfort!

Interview With A Three Year Old

This post is part of the Write 31 Days Challenge hosted by The Nester.

Here is an interview with a three year old…I left this video pretty much unedited. I apologize for Anya being so active and all over the place, but this is her! She is a little ball of energy and I love it. Wish I had half of her energy ;)

5 On Sunday

This post is part of the Write 31 Days Challenge hosted by The Nester.

I have so loved this challenge for the month of October. It has truly grown and stretched me! I wanted to share with you today 5 other bloggers that are also participating in the 31 day challenge. So, without further ado and no particular order here they are:

Building_modest_wardrobe_button1-2

Caroline from The Modest Mom is doing a series on “Building a Modest Wardrobe” I have enjoyed her helpful tips and advice on how to build a wardrobe that is modest and feminine!

family walking proverbs

Bambi from In the Nursery of the Nation is doing a series called “Family Walk through the Proverbs” Bambi goes into a chapter a day from the book of Proverbs.  It’s been fun to follow along and hear what the Lord is teaching them through each chapter.

31-Days-2014

Christin over at Joyful Mothering is writing a series called “31 Days in the Life of a Homeschool Mom of Many” I have enjoyed following along as Christin journals her homeschool day.

31DaysBetterBlogPhotos2

I just came across this series as I was looking trough the different challenge link ups. Jennifer from Memory Journalists has a series on “Taking Better Blog Photos” Each day she tackles a different aspect of photography.

31-daysbutton

I love looking at other blogs that are interested in photography. They inspire me! Lili is doing a series on “Finding Fun and Happiness Thru the Lens” She posts a picture daily and writes about it.
