Georgia Florida this weekend
My team has been a little heartbreaking this year! But hope the pull through this weekend... We just don't like gators!!!

And I miss going to the games… here is some flashback fun circa 7 years ago…

Ps… do you remember when it was super cool to take pictures where only one color showed and the rest was black and white?  I do :)

Sooooo... Jameson is 3 months old and I have yet to send out a single birth announcement (I have hand delivered a few so kudos for that;)). I am not too worried about the baby book because I have monthly updates on the blog that help me there. But at this rate the birth announcements will be sent out with the first birthday invites!!!!

Our small group has been doing an in depth study of Galatians…and it has been so good, I repeat SO GOOD.  I have been reminded again and again that I am justified by my faith in Christ not by anything I have done.  

This week we studies 4:8-20… and verse 9 just rocks me!  
But now that you have come to know God, or rather to be known by God, how can you turn back again to the weak and worthless elementary principles of the world, whose slaves you want to be once more?
First of all we are most importantly KNOWN BY GOD.  The commentary I read on this verse said that rather can actually be read as more importantly.  I think sometimes we get it mixed up.  Yes we know God, but he is the one the sacrificed, he is the one that found us, and we know Him because He knows us.  He called.  
Two, how can I turn back to justifying myself by works again and again when I know I have been save by grace.  
I am reminded through Galatians that the Gospel is not some elementary principle that you "get past" or graduate from.  It is everything- each day we are being renewed by the Gospel.  It is by it that I need to live in every moment :)   

How was your week???
Any Big plans for the weekend???

  2. Oh goodness those skeleton costumes are too cute!! You guys look awesome. Love the idea of a Christmas challenge. For years we have been very strict on our gift giving and it really makes for a more relaxed and enjoyable holiday. Love the idea of giving as much as you spend. We adopted our kids through foster care, so every christmas we buy a car full of toys and donate them to the foster agency. It is so rewarding for our kids and family.
