God laid it on my heart quite a while ago (talking probably two years) to share my testimony here. I typically never share my content on Facebook because I kind of feel like I am talking to myself when I blog. Almost like a little diary. I'm a quiet person & knowing that others are reading is both gratifying but intimidating at the same time. I feel like my regular readers are not people I know on such a personal level & I can just share everything & not really worry about what or how I write. But today's post is one I felt like I needed to share. With those I know, & those I don't. Rather than put it off any longer, I decided that the Lord gave me my experience for a reason & I need to share it with others. Perhaps it may be to encourage or impact one of you in one way or another so- here it is.
Does that make me perfect? No. Does that make me saved? No.
Silly I know, but keep in mind I was 5, yall!
I went up, cried, someone prayed & went through the Romans Road with me.
Wait, what?! I thought. Someone else had these problems with getting true peace?
I know the Lord was planting seeds in my heart all along with my previous experiences, but I hadn't come to understand it all yet. But that night, I asked for Jesus to not only come into my heart- but also to forgive me of all the wrongs I had done in my life & to finally let me be at peace with my salvation.
I hope this isn't as spastic, confusing, useless, & wordy as it feels. The Devil has me beat down with it, but I know I am supposed to share it.

Here I am again with High Five for Friday post on this beautiful fall Saturday:) Oops. My boys are full throttle right now from day to dark. I honestly really can't find the time for anything right now. When I do blog, it is generally late at night when they go to sleep but there has been ONE little problem this week-the full moon! Currently, Cam's at a birthday party & Conley is...shhhhhh...sleeping! My little teether is sleeping peacefully! Ahhhhh, take that full moon! And this mama is getting to remember our sweet week<3
1. Liquid Apple Pie. It's a local thing. Basically apple cider with a mix of caramel & whip cream-but it is out. of. this. world amazing! Starbucks does a similar Caramel Apple Cider. Either way- we totally need to investigate a recipe for this liquid hug to the soul to enjoy from the comforts of home;)
3. Got all of Conley's 1st birthday party goods ordered except for the food & his presents from us! The food is always the struggle for me. But I'm gonna get it right this time:) I also must make mention that I am a terrible buyer of gifts. Do I get something cool or something they need? Totally talked myself into the needs department this year. The something cool is his party...the gifts are most definitely going to be a roomier carseat & highchair.
4. Christmas card pictures are scheduled! Can I get a hand raise for who is excited about those Christmas cards coming in the mail soon? Eeeeep! I LOVE it!;)
5. Cam's Pumpkin Art & Our Pumpkin Countdown Fun
Cam has been busy making pumpkin art at school & oh how I wish I had a place to showcase it! It brightens my day when he brings something home made especially for us! And the countdown. We are working our tails off to do something fally & fun every day. Some days we fail miserably at our todo list, but we just stock pile them for less busy days & tackle them as we can.
BONUS: Productive week at work! May have broken ground with a communication need for one of my kiddos & we are hearing t o n s of new sounds from others this week! Is it the full moon? Totally rewarding to be a speech therapist this week:)
+Linking up with Della at Della Devoted, Katie at Cup of Tea, & Tiff at Bright on a Budget for the High Five for Friday link-up:)

Here lately, all I can do is think about how quickly my babies are growing. Everyday it seems I blink & they grow a foot taller, a pound heavier, & a word smarter! All that thinking has got me feeling nostalgic & thinking of Octobers past...so I figured we'd just take a day to take a stroll down memory lane.
