Awesome Video

This Psalm speaks about restlessness in life. It's what our Bible study was on this week, and it really spoke to me. If you can relate to this, be sure to watch the video at the end!

Psalm 42
For the choir director: A psalm[a] of the descendants of Korah.

1 As the deer longs for streams of water,
so I long for you, O God.
2 I thirst for God, the living God.
When can I go and stand before him?
3 Day and night I have only tears for food,
while my enemies continually taunt me, saying,
“Where is this God of yours?”
4 My heart is breaking
as I remember how it used to be:
I walked among the crowds of worshipers,
leading a great procession to the house of God,
singing for joy and giving thanks
amid the sound of a great celebration!

5 Why am I discouraged?
Why is my heart so sad?
I will put my hope in God!
I will praise him again—
my Savior and 6 my God!

Now I am deeply discouraged,
but I will remember you—
even from distant Mount Hermon, the source of the Jordan,
from the land of Mount Mizar.
7 I hear the tumult of the raging seas
as your waves and surging tides sweep over me.
8 But each day the Lord pours his unfailing love upon me,
and through each night I sing his songs,
praying to God who gives me life.

9 “O God my rock,” I cry,
“Why have you forgotten me?
Why must I wander around in grief,
oppressed by my enemies?”
10 Their taunts break my bones.
They scoff, “Where is this God of yours?”

11 Why am I discouraged?
Why is my heart so sad?
I will put my hope in God!
I will praise him again—
my Savior and my God!

I saw this video last night. I had heard about it, but I never sat down and watched it until now. It really speaks about God's me chills and tears every time I watch it!

Fall Favorites

Christmas with Southern Living makes me giddy! Not sure if you've noticed, but Christmas is my favorite time of year, and I love when this book comes in the mail! I get lots of ideas, inspiration, and new recipes to try!

Southern Miss football at the Rock. Although, I'm somewhat of a fair weather fan (literally)...I pretty much only enjoy the night games when it's cooler than 85 degrees. Haha...

Candles that remind me it's fall somewhere, even if it doesn't feel like it in Mississippi. I live in the wrong climate. These Montag candles are fabulous, and I love the Harvest Pumpkin smell!

Fall foliage! I love all the colors of the leaves; I really love Gatlinburg this time of year. And Missouri. :)

Boots. Nothing says fall to me like a new pair of cute boots. I think these quilted ones are adorable!

Grandaddy's 80th Birthday Party

We recently celebrated my grandfather's 80th birthday at AJ's in Madison. Several of his close friends and family attended the party; it was really sweet! I think he was really happy to see a lot of them that he hasn't seen in a while. The food was wonderful!! I got the steak with asparagus...yum! Jeffry didn't get to come because he had to work at the store, but the boys were with me. Below are a few of the photos from that day!

Grandaddy with his scrumptious birthday cake!

Grandaddy and his sister, Aunt Mable. Don't they look great for their age?!
