Veggie Tales and Swimming

Well, for the 1 millionth time we are watching veggietales in the morning. I think I have formed a bad habit. Carter wakes up in the morning and we play a little while then he goes and sits in from of the tv and then if I don't come and put his DVD in then he begins to open the entertainment center and pull out DVDs. It is pretty funny to watch, actually.  My favorite one is the Gideon one. It tells a story about George Mueller and it is really good. There are a lot of Bible verses in it and there is also lots of dance music which is our favorite.  We love to get low!! lol. 

I get to go swimming today and then have lunch with a friend. I'm so excited.  I have an awesome mother-in-law and she is going to keep Carter for me, so I'm going to get a nice break and some exercise after a tough week with Carter being sick.  

I have been having a tough time spiritually and I haven't been getting into the word like I should but yesterday I got to have an awesome devotional time. I felt so renewed and invigorated. I read Hebrews 12 and it was such an encouragement to lay aside every weight that entangles us and to run the race that is set before us looking to Christ the author and finisher of our faith.  I was so convicted about how I let the cares and wants of the world dictate how I live instead of the scriptures.  It was an awesome time.  I would encourage anyone that is feeling like they are being carried along by the world to read this awesome chapter for encouragement.  Hopefully I will be able to have another good bible time today. :-)

That's about all I have for now. Continue to pray for Harper.
