Five on Friday-Remembering Papaw

Happy Friday! Here's another edition of Five On Friday-enjoy!

Tuesday I decorated our house for fall/Halloween and decided  I would be a little trickster and put the witch pictured above in the bed on Marcus' side. Well he retaliated Wednesday morning. It doesn't take much to entertain us ha!

I am happy to report that Georgia Grace is eating much better as of late. She loves foods that she can feed herself. Her favorites right now are cheerios and cheese. Cheerios are necessities during church or anywhere we are where she has to be confined. She hasn't had any gagging spells and she is doing better with eating from a spoon (I'm think the rejection of the spoon was related to teething). I'm so proud of her!

I read this quote this week and it literally stopped me in my tracks. It is so easy to consider ourselves "good people" and/or to justify sin. We are so far from good when compared to Jesus. A very humbling reminder that we are all given grace upon grace upon grace daily that we do not deserve. John 1:16 tells us from the fullness of his grace we have all received one blessing after another. The real question is why doesn't bad things happen to all of us? What a merciful God we serve!!

Georgia Grace learned how to blow bubbles yesterday! I had to work a nutrition event last night and when I checked twitter on my way home Marcus had posted this and my heart just melted. That face. Life is so fun with her as my daughter!

Today marks the one year anniversary of Papaw's passing. I was reading my "Remembering Papaw" post that I made last year here and I mentioned how I hoped Georgia Grace would inherit some of his traits and I can confidently say that she has. She is happy, busy, and has a grin that looks just like his! He is home and watching over us. I'll cherish the memories forever.

Please remember us in your prayers today if you don't mind<3
