finding my fit

I am still sorting out a few things as I begin this blog. I have signed up for a blog writing class. It is geared to focus the blog, present me with writing prompts, and receive feedback from other writers. So get excited for the first of some pretty great things.

Until then, let me fill you in on what’s going on around here. Yesterday, we ventured to Epcot International Food and Wine Festival. I think we have gone twice a week since it started at the end of September! We will go one last time this year tomorrow evening to see Jo Dee Messina and eat and drink our way around the world! I will post my favorites and must-haves with photos tomorrow or Friday!

I have been packing away for our upcoming trip to North Carolina. I am so excited to go home just shy of 3 weeks … However, getting everything into a checked bag within the weight limit and 2 carry-ons has been close to the death of me. Okay … okay … not really! But you never know what you are going to need over a 2 week period, especially when the weather has the slightest glimpse of fall like temperatures. I am so excited to spend time with my family for my uncle’s wedding! It has been a long time since we were all together! I can’t wait to see my nail man Bryan! I can’t wait to start the new series at church! I am just ready to be home.

I got some devotional time in today. We are studying Hosea at church . The pastor challenged us with 3 questions to consider when getting into the Word. He also gave us a notecard with verses to help us know answers to the question, “Who am I in Christ?” The card has 3 sections, I am secure, I am significant and one more that I can’t remember. The 3 questions he asked us to consider when opening the word are:

  1. What does this passage reveal about God’s character and nature?
  2. What does this passage reveal about man’s character and nature?
  3. What is God calling me to do?

It really did help in Bible application. If that is something you would be interested in (devotional readings, questions and responses), let my know by leaving a comment.

Supper tonight was brought to you by emeals and it was delicious. Cheddar meatloaf muffins, mashed potatoes, and salad! It was so awesome. If you haven’t tried emeals- do yourself a flavor (←see what I did there?)!

Tonight is ABC Wednesday! So I am signing off!

welcome

Hello there. I am Jamie. Mike is the love of my life. We have a wild child — Lottie. And, well, let’s not forget those dogs — Hank and Millie. I like Pinterest. I like cooking. I like love Jesus. I am doing life, or rather trying to do life, as the Lord leads me, as a wife and a mother.

Life with Lottie has brought lessons I didn’t even know I needed to learn.

Here is a place I would like to share those lessons. Through daily happenings, recipes, and whatnots, I hope to encourage, inspire, offer laughter, or just give a good read or escape to those who may be in similar seasons of life.
