Totally Random Tuesday!

Hello Friends and Happy National Cheeseball Day!

I thought I would pop in and share a little randomness with you today.  How's your Tuesday so far?  I still think I should have Mondays off to get readjusted from the weekend...I don't think my boss would go for it though :)  We had a really good weekend which ended with spontaneous cook outs because the weather was so beautiful.  Rondell and Caleb went to Rondell's friend's house for a cook out (while I was hosting a Tastefully Simple party) and Jamison and I went to the neighbors who were having a small gathering.  It was wonderful!
Jamison had a friend over on Saturday while Caleb was at a birthday party.  She and Hannah had such a nice time and it was so sweet to hear all of their giggles.  I even treated them to some chocolate chip cookies which were a big hit :)
My last two BSF lesson have been on the Book of James and let me tell you it is eye-opening.  There are so many points in that book to meditate on and apply to everyday living...how I speak to others, where to look for wisdom, and my prayer life.

One of the many verses that I took away from reading James is James 5:16:
Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed.  The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.  

I have friends who do not live close to me, but are suffering and I battle at times thinking that my prayer isn't enough for them...that I want to be able to physically be there for them during their time of trial.  But this verse gives me peace to know that the prayers that I lift up for them are powerful and that they do have an impact.

Oh and you should read this post...lots of food for thought.  
Raise your hand if you love this store.  I don't visit TJ nearly enough and each time I do go I wonder why I don't go more often.  I ran in the other day to get their sparkling apple and cranberry juice (yum!) and picked up some sunflowers for just $3...can't beat that.

Well Friends I hope you are having a great start to your week.  It's supposed to be sunny for the next few days and I will be enjoying each minute :)

Kelli I love your random posts! LOL about National Cheeseball day:) I need to find a good bible study...I have been terrible about reading my bible lately! Does that count as confessing my sins?!? Jamison and her friend look like such sweeties! I bet they loved your cookies.

Jamison is so cute with her friend! Sounds like you had a great weekend. I love Trader Joe's too, and they always have nice sunflowers. Perfect for you :)

National CheeseballDay, huh? Who knew there was such a thing? ;o)

Prayers are sometimes all we can offer and they're more helpful than you can know. I promise. :o)

TJ's? Yup! Just started going again regularly--I've been saving a TON on my groceries by going there. I fill in what I can't get and still am saving over $25/visit. Crazy! Oh, not to mention all the YUMMY food they have...;o)
