Every morning I try and have devotions. I have a favorite book that I love reading out of and it's called Jesus Calling by Sarah Young. I recently read a devotion that really hit home to me. There has been a lot going on in our lives this summer and fall and I tend to worry and complain when things don't go the way I wish they would. So I opened this book one morning and began reading it. I felt as though the Lord was sitting across the table from me and speaking this directly to me. This is what it said: You have been on a long, uphill journey, and your energy is almost spent. Though you have faltered at times, you have not let go of My hand. I am pleased with your desire to stay close to Me. There is one thing, however, that displeases Me: your tendency to complain. You may talk to Me as much as you like about the difficulty of the path we are following. I understand better than anyone else the stresses and strains that have afflicted you. You can ventilate safely to Me, because talking with Me tempers your thoughts and helps you see things from My perspective.. Complaining to others is another matter altogether. It opens the door to deadly sins such as self-pity and rage. Whenever you are tempted to grumble, come to Me and talk it out. As you open up to Me, I will put My thoughts in your mind and My song in your heart. Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like starts in the universe. - Philippians 2:14-15

I am on my computer almost daily and I love checking out my emails, facebook and just searching the web. There are sometimes when I have had to deal with a sluggish laptop and I wonder how to speed up my computer. It would make it much more enjoyable to have it run faster and get to websites or watch videos a lot better. I'm sure there are a lot of people who would love their computers to run faster.

The last two days here have been really quite nice. Today we wake up to temperatures in the 40s, wind and rain. It's a pretty ugly day outside but I am thankful for the rain because we had such a dry summer and the news anchors keep telling us that we are behind about 10 inches of rain. So bring it on Lord! At least I can stay in where it is dry and warm.

I remember when I was young and I would watch my dad go off to work carrying his lunch box and his thermos. He always loved his coffee and had that thermos full. In this day and age I have seen so many kinds of Stanley products. They keep coffee, tea and any hot beverage good and hot for a long time. My support is here for Stanley thermos because they are such good reliable products!

My favorite thing we did when we were on vacation in Florida was chillin on the beach. My husband and I spent the majority of time while gone on the beach and in the water. It was so relaxing and we came home very brown. I loved it and I really miss it. Back where we live it is cold! It was in the 90s while we were there. It was so amazing and beautiful!
Every fall I start to think about cleaning our carpets. It seems that over the summer we can get lazy about taking our shoes off before walking on the carpeted floors. We don't do it often but by fall it seems like the carpets could use a good cleaning or freshening up. For people out east there are carpet cleaners holly springs nc that can take good care of your carpets and get them feeling fresh and clean. It always feels so good when they are done.
