For a couple of years now I have been trying to drink some of my fruits and veggies by blending them up in a blender! So most mornings I whip up some carrots, tomato, spinach, blueberries, banana, strawberries and some raspberries. The ingredients vary but that is what was on the menu this morning. Add a little rice milk and water to thin it down. I go in really good spurts and do this everyday and then , miss days too. This week I was sick of it so I happened to add some Agave nectar to it. Ahhhh did that help! Just switched the flavor up a little ....YUM! well,,maybe not yum, but better.
Last weekend the guys went hunting....Luke didn't go but he is pretty busy and not home much. So I rented a chick flick ! Love when I can do that! To actually watch a movie and cry when I need to!!! That is awesome! I chose The Last Song with Miley Cyrus ....I have heard good and bad about it but I really liked it! Not my favorite or anything but worth seeing!
Maybe next year I will go on one of these hunting trips! Sounds like I am missing out when I hear the stories!!

Sometimes when I pray I have no words....and that is okay....just be still and quiet....He already knows!
You don't have to say anything. You don't have to label your needs and desires with boxes to check off. He knows them already because He knows you. He knows the sound of every cry and every laugh He knows when we are content or not. He doesn't need us to explain, because He loves us well enough to just, know.
Sometimes when I pray I realize that I pray to Him as if He doesn't already know everything. As if I'm another customer in the long line of people who want to talk to Him.
I want to start to let Him be Him in my prayer. I want to be able to rest knowing that I don't have to work to pray, because He is in the business of knowing already.
I just wanted to encourage you all to reach out to the God who has already filled the gaps, and embrace Him as the Father who doesn't need anything from you. You are freed from responsibility, and enabled, through grace, to be a part of the miracle.
Ahhh. Doesn't that feel nice?
