We have been very busy this week. We had fall revival at church. Bro. Darrell Hayes from Georgia was our speaker. I really enjoy hearing him preach. He is very direct. He speaks plainly and truthfully.
The Lord dealt with my heart about worshipping Him more. I need to spend more time thanking him, singing to Him, talking to Him about His goodness to me, and talking to Him about the wonder of Him. I read my Bible. I study. I pray. I am serving Him each day. I am busy with the work and ministries of the church. However, it is very important that I stop, slow down and just worship and adore Him more. I believe it will completely change my relationship with the Lord.
Overall, we had good revival services with hearts being stirred. However we don't have revival just because we have a meeting and revival doesn't stop with the meeting has ended. Revival happens in our hearts when we are willing to listen to follow and to obey the Lord's stirring voice. I pray that we will do these things and continue to see revival in our church.
Yesterday, I was in a baking mood. I made a pumpkin roll and a pumpkin pie. The pumpkin roll was delicious. I used my friend Miranda's recipe. She got it from an Amish recipe. Click on her name for the recipe. It is very easy! I don't know if the pie is good. We haven't had any yet.
Today is going to be a lazy day. I am exhausted after the going, going, going of the week. It is cold, dark, rainy, and dreary outside today. It is a curl up on the couch and watch an old movie type of day. I am planning to drink some warm cider and do just that. I may also make some homemade fall candy with the kids after school. I found a recipe and these cute pumpkin molds. I will also do some laundry, take care of the kids, and cook our meals. Those are a given for everyday.
Tomorrow night we are going to a party at Emily's house. It is just for the grown ups, so the kids will be staying at home with Kayla. I am looking forward to getting a night out with some adult conversation. I enjoy being with my kids, but every mother needs a little time away every now and then. I am long overdue.
