I read this this morning, in my devotional..Jesus Lives by Sarah Young. It is SO written for me! Had to share it. If you have ever wrestled with anything (that'd be everyone) it will hit home.

I am your Intimate Friend, but I am also Unfathomable and Mysterious; Infinitely great and Glorious! I want you to contemplate Me in My glory so you can worship Me exuberantly. Sometimes, though, you struggle with My unsearchable decisions and untraceable ways-seeking to control Me rather than abandoning yourself to Me in worship. You need to recognize "control" for what it is:an idol. I created you in My image and endowed you with free will. I gave you amazing linguistic abilities so you could communicate richly with Me. Instead of using these gifts in manipulative ways-trying to control Me-devote them to worshipping Me in spirit and truth.
I encourage you to pray freely: Ask and it will be given to you. Nonetheless, when you bring Me your petitions, you need to keep in mind the depth of My wisdom and knowledge. This will protect you from being presumptuous or manipulative. I never fail to hear your prayers and answer them wisely, but I do not always grant your petitions-no matter how heartfelt they may be and how utterly right they may seem. If it becomes clear that My will differs from what you have requested, the best response is to say simply, "Yes Jesus." This will draw you closer to Me, even in the midst of your disappointment. Though My ways-My methods, My paths-may be mysterious from your perspective, I assure you they are good.
Romans 11:33 Oh, the depth of riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unfathomable are His judgments! And how untraceable are His ways!

So Thankful

When I look back on the past 12 months, I can hardly believe that is all it has been. This year has brought events that are life changing and character shaping. So much, in fact, that I am still processing it all.

It was our year to spend Thanksgiving with my family, but since my parents' kitchen is being given a makeover, I got to host Thanksgiving this year! My mom still did most of the cooking, so we referred to this as the "tutorial year";). Along with my parents, we celebrated with my 2 aunts, Dustin, Lauren & their 2 girls. We are so thankful for all God has done for us! He is good...all the time! We give thanks...

for all of God's grace, mercy and constant, undeserved blessings!

Family Day

Rock Academy hosted a Family Day last Friday. Jason had to work, so Bellen & I bounced back and forth between Jameson & Meran's class. In Jameson class, we made butter and in Meran's we made recipe books, followed by a special Thanksgiving chapel. After their festivities, we headed to Sutton's class to celebrate Thanksgiving with an "all preschool" feast!
A great way to kick off the Thanksgiving week-long break!

On Wednesday, Meran & Jameson had the jog-a-thon (Dr.Seuss themed) for the Rock Academy. Sutton had a "Hallelujah" party at preschool and we had a little dinner/trick-or-treating gathering with a few friends. The kids were pumped, the sugar was was a fun night. Not to mention our kids' first time to trick or treat on Halloween!
