If you were a fly on my wall...


you would see that my house may appear "clean", but usually is not.  Footprints and fingerprints abound.

you would smell the strange dinner I just made~eggs, sauteed mushrooms, Red Lobster's garlic cheese biscuits and bacon.

you would hear me listening to Cornerstone by Hillsong over and over and over and over again.

you would be looking out my backdoor and noticing how beautiful and eerie it always looks after a storm...but how beautiful is my God, that He would give us such artistry to enjoy?

you would know that Graham is catching up on a show I recorded that he would rather not talk about.

you would see that in just a little while, I am going to be watching either The Voice or the season finale of Dancing With The Stars.  ;)

you would see me in my pajama's.

you would hear me crying at the end of the book I just finished, the seventh and last installment in Neta Jackson's Yada Yada Prayer Group series.  The ends of her books get me very single time~not because they're sad, they're not at all, but they reflect on the goodness of God.  And that makes me bawl my eyes out. I've gone through so many tissues in the last couple hours.

you would know that the book I just finished was the sixtieth book I've read in less than a year!  I started keeping a tally on the books I read back on May 28th of last year.  I'm about to start #61...a series that spans off the Yada Yada series.  This series is entitled House of Hope, and the first book is, "Where Do I Go?".  {Think of the lyrics from the old song, "I go to the Rock that is higher than I!", and you'll get the gist of this series of books.}

you would have felt my pride in our church tonight...tonight kicked off the kids' summer series called Midweek Mania.  Ice cream was involved.  Lots and lots of ice cream.  The kids had fun, and it is always such a joy to serve alongside our amazing leaders.  :)  I love them all.

you would know that Todd is watching Deadliest Catch, and I'm doing this.

you would know that it's almost my bedtime...and this book beside me is calling my name.

Love to all.

{I started writing this post last night, Tuesday, and finished it tonight after church.  I don't know why that it's important, but I felt the need to tell you that.}

ok, I'm going to start the yada yada series this weekend. After I saw you were reading them and I have been searching for good ones to read I decided to try it! :)

Yay! These books are life-changing and amazing. They will challenge your relationship with God and will make you crave His word more and more...and your prayer life will be transformed. Buckle up. They're amazing!!
