Day 25 | Favorite Hymns


Good music.  It's my thing.  In Christian music, the words are the most important part of the song. Here are a few of my favorite hymns...just a few.  I could go on, and on, and on...

**And, I'll inevitably forget "my favorite song ever!"

TRADITIONS...

Life has been crazy busy--that's life, right?!  The fall is always filled with a ton of activities and a lot of good quality family time!  We love our fall traditions.

Since living in East Texas, we've ventured to Yesterland Farms every year for our pumpkin patch tradition...






Another tradition--The State Fair of Texas...





And another...Six Flags over Texas for Thrills by Day, Frights by Night.


And one of my favorite traditions...


What are your fall traditions?  Give me some ideas!!!

Day 23 | Perseverance


Throughout this series, I've shared about about the spiritual disciplines--how discipline makes us more like Him.  Bible intake, prayer, worship, service, etc. are just a means to growing us in godliness and we must persevere!  We all have dry spells and valleys, but even through the trials, the droughts, and the low points we must keep on keepin' on!

Remember that quote from Graham's seminary professor?  A faith that fizzles before the finish was faulty at the first.  I love that quote and it's so true.  Although we are not saved by our works, our works do prove us to be saved.  
We must discipline our lives, but we must do so all the year round, and not merely at stated periods.  I must discipline myself at all times.  --Martyn Lloyd-Jones, Studies in the Sermon on the Mount
