Blessings on you all today! God is in heaven and as His name, “El Roi,” proclaims, “He sees all.” Thank Him for that. It means that there is no secret sin. There is nowhere you can run away and nothing can happen to you that He does not see or is not in control of. He is with your loved ones when you are not and He cares. He is everywhere, in everything and nothing exists that He did not create! Wow, I don’t know about you, but that brings me great comfort. He is our all in all! Everything we need, everything we have, everything we want! Amen?

Thanks Sheryl for hosting flf!

On a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being highest, how polite are you?

Probably a 7 or 8. I think sometimes because I am in a hurry I forget to always be polite, but I do try.

What was the last thing that made you laugh out loud?

My husband walking in from work singing, “Good morning Baltimore!” I should have never let him see Hairspray with us :o).

Who is your favorite cartoon character?

Probably Winnie the Pooh. He is just adorable. Oh bother.

Main Course

Tell about the funniest teacher you ever had.

Funniest as in haha would probably be Mrs. Calhoun who was my seventh grade english teacher. She had a short song for every instruction she taught. She was one of those teachers you think, “Is she for real?” and then you find out… yes, she is.

Complete this sentence: I strongly believe that Izzy will walk.

My good friend Gail thought I deserved the schmoozer award. She’s just the greatest gal in the words of a true schmoozer…

A schmooze award…….Schmoozing as defined by is the ability to converse casually…. And I think with blogging it’s about making friends, being a friend, commenting and answering comments and having a welcoming blog. Thanks girls, y’all have all made me feel welcome.

I would definitely give this right back to Gail. She is a great bloggy friend who is quick to comment on my posts, and reply to my comments!

Her sister Stacy is quite the schmoozer as well!

Here’s a few more of the best schmoozers I know…
& Kim!

Thanks Gail!

Karolee is hosting the Proverbs challenge!
I love when bloggers join together to study God’s word. All you have to do is read one chapter in Proverbs each day, by the end of August you will have read the whole book.

For those who have asked, Izzy’s nose is fine now. I think it was just dry but it happened several times but she is nosebleed free now!

The jury is still out on the hair issue. I’m taking Bailey to get his locks trimmed next week. He has been growing out his hair all summer and thinks it is pretty cool. I am hoping a little trim will go a long way. Although I think he is cute with any hair style!

I’m so proud of the kids! Amanda has been so sweet and helpful, not even mentioning the church issue once. Bailey went out and did yard work without asking him to this afternoon. He just noticed that the yard needed to be mowed. It helps I’m sure that he is rewarded for his efforts, but still… I didn’t even mention it!

I’m getting ready for our visitors tomorrow. I am making Pioneer woman’s lasagna for dinner, but want to make something really good for breakfast and I did my favorite breakfast casserole the last two times I’ve seen them… so any ideas for something different but easy would be good. I don’t want to stand in the kitchen cooking a big breakfast when we will be heading out for lunch pretty early. I may just zip over to Panera and get a bagel pack tomorrow. Good idea?

I went to bed earlier, started chapter one or lesson one of my new Beth Moore study “Believing God.” Jenny suggested it was a good one and I needed something new to read. I mentioned it to Matt and he happened to be near a Mardels so he picked up a copy of the study guide and book for me. I usually just like the study books because the are so interactive, but I’m noticing this one has things left out that must be on the dvd or teacher’s guide. I may have to read the book too… we’ll see. I do love it so far! Thank for suggesting it Jenny. I am up now because Miss Isabelle will not go back to sleep. She was asleep and woke up so we are on the couch me blogging and her awake! I sure hope she gets sleepy soon because it is almost midnight (11:55) and I’m sleepy! So, goodnight (I hope)!

It’s 12:10 a.m. and guess who is snoring!!! So goodnight for real this time! YAY.
