Is it the weekend Yet?

It's finally fall! It's my favorite time of the year. I love the look of the leaves, the crispness of the air outside and the smell of autumn that seems to be ever present. Big things happen in our house during the fall. Fun things. This weekend will be no exception. Brandon's birthday is Saturday. He'll be twelve. Wow. The South Carolina/Tennessee football game is also on Saturday and as you all probably know, that's a huge day in our family. All the stops get pulled out on that day. Food, drinks, decorations and lots of hollering and screaming at the TV. Lots of bets being made between Albert and I for foot rubs, back scratches and of course, our annual tradition...whoever's team wins gets flag hanging rights outside our front porch till next year's game. Even though neither of us have actually gotten around to hanging the flag in the past year or so. In fact, both of us need to order new ones but I digress...there will be a fire pit and smores and barbecue ribs. Cake and ice cream, chicken wings, orange and white streamers. South Carolina colored cupcakes (that would be garnet and black for anyone wondering exactly what color South Carolina might be), and lots of little ones laughing and playing loudly. And most likely one eighteen month old looking at Mommy and Daddy like we have lost our minds when we scream and jump up and down at the television. I will be wrapped in my Gamecock Snuggie and Albert will be donned in Orange and white down to his UT socks.
But before all of this gets underway...we'll spend the morning at the Soulard Farmer's Market. This time though, I won't be bringing back any new kittens!
This weekend is also the Freshman Family Potluck lunch, on Sunday afternoon. We're excited to participate in that...and in the most fabulous news ever...Anna and Lisa will be visiting us this weekend and get to do all these fun things with us! We are so excited we can barely stand it. Our kids are excited and we are making all the preparations now (read that as cleaning up our house). I'm happily washing windows, and cleaning up my usually messy bedroom. Yes, even when the rest of the house is clean, my bedroom looks like a tornado has hit it about 95% of the time. Except when we have company.
We have so much fun coming up this weekend, I can hardly contain myself and it's just now Tuesday! We have nephews spending this weekend with us as well, so as you can imagine, it's going to be a house full of fun and craziness. I can't wait!

How did I not know you guys were South Carolina fans? SEC football is the best. I'm an Auburn fan but WOO are we doing crummy this year... Oh well. We still won the National Championship last year. ;)

I can't believe Brandon's going to be 12! He's almost a teenager!
Lifting up prayer!
Psalms 121:6-8 The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night. The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul. The LORD shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.

These verses contain the reason why we have the hope of life to come. Know that I'm here praying so hard!
Ephesians 1:17-20 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places...

Continuing to pray!
Psalms 28:1-2 Unto thee will I cry, O LORD my rock; be not silent to me: lest, if thou be silent to me, I become like them that go down into the pit. Hear the voice of my supplications, when I cry unto thee, when I lift up my hands toward thy holy oracle.

Know that you're always in my thoughts and prayers!
Psalms 28:6-7 Blessed be the LORD, because he hath heard the voice of my supplications. The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him.

Still praying hard in Seattle!
Psalms 31:1-3 In thee, O LORD, do I put my trust; let me never be ashamed: deliver me in thy righteousness. Bow down thine ear to me; deliver me speedily: be thou my strong rock, for an house of defence to save me. For thou art my rock and my fortress; therefore for thy name's sake lead me, and guide me.

Praying!
Psalms 31:5, 7-8 Into thine hand I commit my spirit: thou hast redeemed me, O LORD God of truth (7-8) I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy: for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities; And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy: thou hast set my feet in a large room.

Am so blessed to be able to pray for you!
Psalms 31:14-16 But I trusted in thee, O LORD: I said, Thou art my God. My times are in thy hand: deliver me from the hand of mine enemies, and from them that persecute me. Make thy face to shine upon thy servant: save me for thy mercies' sake.

Praying in Seattle!
Psalms 69:1-3, 13 Save me, O God; for the waters are come in unto my soul. I sink in deep mire, where there is no standing: I am come into deep waters, where the floods overflow me. I am weary of my crying: my throat is dried: mine eyes fail while I wait for my God...But as for me, my prayer is unto thee, O LORD, in an acceptable time: O God, in the multitude of thy mercy hear me, in the truth of thy salvation.
