a sweet baby shower in honor of the lovely @moxiemandie this morning
Celebrating this pretty mama today!
last saturday i was honored to help with sweet mandie's baby shower.  more to come on that celebration next week.
My snake plant is blooming!!! This is so incredibly rare. #imayhavesquealedanddanced #youknowyouareaplantpersonwhen
this surprise snake plant bloom is so cool.  these plants rarely, if ever, flower.  i may have been dancing around the living room upon discovery.

Living in #ABQ means the Walter White memorial service might be held across the street. #breakingbad #newmexico
and then you start to feel like the paparazzi #buttheypulledupnexttome #breakingbad
a sign you live in albuquerque: walter white's memorial service is held across the street from your neighborhood.  jesse and i have not seen breaking bad, but lots of our family and friends are fans.  so this ups our cool points, right?

a 5:15 couch nap does not bode well for an early bedtime and tomorrow morning's early wake up #hewillnotwakeup #maybeheisdownforthenight #wishfulthinking #enzobenzo #flacothecat
late sunday cat naps are very sweet, but don't bode well for early bedtimes.

well, if I have to be at the dentist again this morning, at least the lobby looks like this. #plantsmakemehappy #beautyfinding #joychoosing
if i had to finish the yucky root canal treatment, at least this is the lobby view. plants make me happy.

"Every branch in me that does not bear fruit he takes away, and every branch that does bear fruit he prunes, that it may bear more fruit." John 15:2  Truth to dwell on while I uncomfortably cut away branches from my beloved citrus trees.
and pruning makes me uncomfortable.  but then i remember...

"Every branch in me that does not bear fruit he takes away, and every branch that does bear fruit he prunes, that it may bear more fruit." John 15:2

like moths to a flame
they are enjoying the ability to play piano after dusk.

Yesterday was our fifteen years couple-versary. Today is our fourteen years engagement-versary.
wednesday was our fifteen years couple-versary. thursday was our fourteen years engagement-versary.  i am a sucker for anniversaries of all kinds.

Left the house on this rainy morning for my first #classicalconversations campus visit. 10 minutes in and I see my 3yo stripped down to the waist and my 8yo hiding under a table.  Pretty much a smashing success, don't ya think? #homeschoolmamasareveryunde
The Snake House by architect Bart Prince, right next to the Rio Rancho #classicalconversations campus! #newmexico
Luca has chosen his future abode.
we left the house on this rainy friday morning for my first classical conversations campus visit. 10 minutes in and i see my 3yo stripped down to the waist and my 8yo hiding under a table. pretty much a smashing success, don't ya think?  thankfully homeschool mamas are very understanding.

when we left the building, i spotted the snake house by architect bart prince.  (i don't think that is the official name - nope, it is not - but i have heard the nickname around.)  i had been meaning to take the kids down this street for awhile, so we redeemed the afternoon and went exploring to get a better view.  luca has decided this will be his future abode.

life rearranged

i am joining the nester and will be blogging every single day in october!

If you are searching for the truth about God and His plan for mankind, where should you look? What is the only trustworthy source to find God's truth? Would it be creed books, Bible commentaries and a variety of other written works of men?


Jeremiah 30:1-2 This word which came to Jeremiah from the Lord, saying, 2 "Thus says the Lord, saying, the God of Israel, 'Write all the words which I have spoken to you in a book.

The Lord did not tell Jeremiah to check with Billy Graham, Joesph Smith Jr., Gandhi or Saint Augustine and write down their words.

Exodus 24:3-4 Then Moses came and recounted to the people all the words of the Lord and all the ordinances; and all the people answered with one voice and said, "All the words which the Lord has spoken we will do!" 4 Moses wrote down all the words of the Lord.......

Moses did not write down everything that John Wesley, Brigham Young, and Buddha had said.

Matthew 4:4 But He answered and said, "It is written, 'Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God!"

Jesus said live by every word that comes from God. He did say say live by every word that comes from Pope Benedict XVI, Martin Luther, and Jerry Falwell.

Luke 10:25-26 And a lawyer stood up and put Him to the test, saying. "Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life ?" 26 And He said to him, "What is written in the Law? How does it read to you?"

Jesus did not answer the lawyer by asking him "how does what is written by Robert Schuller, Mother Teresa and Benny Hin read to you?"

Acts 17:2-3 And according to Paul's custom, he went to them, and for three Sabbaths reasoned with them from Scriptures, explaining and giving evidence that Christ had to suffer and rise again from the dead, and saying, "This Jesus whom I am proclaiming to you is the Christ."

The apostle Paul did not reason from the writings of Max Lucado, Pope John Paul II and John Calvin.

John 20:30-31 Therefore many other signs Jesus also performed in the presence of disciples, which are not written in this book; 31 but these have been written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing you may have life in His name.

The writings of John McAthur, Jack Van Impe, Bill Hybels and Charles Swindoll were not written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ.

2 Peter 3:15-16 and regard the patience of our Lord as salvation; just as also our beloved brother Paul, according to the wisdom given him, wrote to you, 16 as also in all his letters, speaking in them of these things, in which are some things hard to understand, which the untaught and unstable distort, as they do the rest of the Scriptures...

Peter said Paul's letters were by wisdom from God. Paul's letters were Scriptures.

Where does Peter say creed books, catechisms, Bible commentaries, books about the Bible, and other writings of men are Scriptures?
