Friday Footprints

       Well, girls, summer has come to an end and it's time for fall - full of cooler weather, beautiful leaves, and cozy afternoons at home. For most of us school is back in session. So whether you're back to doing homeschool work in your pjs, heading to school each morning, or balancing a busy college schedule, here are some links for those few free moments between assignments.      Looking for a laugh and some very truthful statements, then check out Blimey Cow ! They makes some great points in a hilarious way. If you're a homeschooler you may want to check out their video"  Seven Lies About Homeschoolers " it's pretty funny and true!      How about some yummy fall snacks to help you study? Thinking of having some apple cider? Try making Apple Cups . Or these yummy Pumpkin Muffins !      Last but not least, a few great songs... Tell the World by Lecrae, Proof of Your Love by for King and Country, and Hold Me by Jamie Grace. Enjoy! Happy Frida

He knows me. And loves me anyway.

It's classic Megan. Look, God, I'm starting this Bible study. Look, God, I'm reading this deep theological book. Look, God, at how I'm serving. Aren't you proud? Aren't you impressed? Sometimes I forget He already knows everything about me. I try to start at the beginning and color my image so He is sure to see my best qualities and ignore the others. I get caught up in that awkward-beginning-friendship-mode, where I analyze and over-evaluate myself to figure out how I'm coming across to the other person, and perhaps try to tamper down my overly-enthusiastic side and only reveal the most perfect parts of me. (It's not something I'm particularly proud of). Have you ever noticed the difference in the way you act, or feel, between those new friends and your family? It's not always flattering, but I know that with my sister I can argue with her. I can be silly, I can be loud, or I can sulk. Obviously I shouldn't always do or be these things
