End of the Month; Beginning of Something Awesome

October has been a whirl-wind of school (Jackson, Troy and I), baseball, ballet, church and, all things that go with being a mother of a family of 5.  I love it!  I would not trade it for anything.  But alas we are at the end of the month.  My parents are coming in today and will be here until Saturday.  Saturday will bring Halloween and my son is just beside himself with excitement.  He has been counting down the days for 21 days now.  Whatever!  I am over Halloween but am willing to endure 30 minutes of it for trick or treats.  But I digress.  As we end the month I have realized that I have been stagnant in my spiritual walk.  I have had plans of doing a Bible study on my own and I am now on week 10 of my six week study!  I had planned on having family devotions every Friday night and so far since we have started we have had one.  I am exhausted by the time I get to church for WAM on Wednesdays and I don't put all into teaching these precious children how to worship.  By Sunday, I am so tired of being at church it takes me a while to get into anything.  So today I was going through a blog I found through Misty, it is written by a Christian and her main goal is to give, love others and teach them the same.  So she is having a 30 Day Giving Challenge in November.  I don't know who all is reading my blog, I did just start it.  But I plan on accepting this challenge and growing my walk with the Lord.  I don't expect anything except a renewed closeness with Him.  In the past 7 1/2 years Troy and I have been overwhelmed with the unsolicited generosity to us by those we love.  Even by some that we didn't know at the time.  I don't know what I am going to give or whom I am going to give it to.  We will have to see where the Lord prompts!
