CVS - From the Ground Up

Since it has been a long time since I have shopped the CVS deals, I have been looking for a good way to get back into it without spending too much money out of pocket.

I found a great blog that explains how to start out shopping at CVS and she is doing a month long series showing the process step-by-step.

I'm excited to get started at CVS again and thought y'all might want to check out the blog too!

Go to The Thrifty Mama blog (on my bloglist) and search for her CVS - From the Ground Up post.

If anyone wants to go with me, let me know! Any weekday morning or early afternoon works for me. :)

Bike Ridin'

We recently bought Shea a bike seat and helmet. He loves ridin bikes with Da-Da! Anything outside is what Shea loves best!

You Do All Things Well

"You do all things well" by Chris Tomlin:

Mountain maker
Ocean tamer
Glimpses of You
Burn in my eyes
The worship of heaven
Fills up the skies

You made it all
Said, "let there be"
And there was
All that we see
The sound of Your voice
The works of Your hands
You do all things well
You do all things well
You do all things well

Star creator
Wind breather
The strokes of Your beauty
Brushed through the clouds
Light from the heavens
Touching the ground

Imagination runs wild
And breathes the breath of life
Across the fields
Across the miles

God the Spirit

From "The Valley of Vision"...

I pray not so much for graces as for the Spirit himself, because I feel his absence, and act by my own spirit in everything.
Give me not weak desires but the power of his presence, for this is the surest way to have all his graces, and when I have the seal I have the impression also;
He can heal, help, quicken, humble suddenly and easily; can work grace and life effectually, and being eternal he can give grace eternally.
Save me from great hindrances, from being content with a little measure of the Spirit, from thinking thou wilt not give me more.
When I feel my lack of him, light up life and faith, for when I lose thee I am either in the dark and cannot see thee, or Satan and my natural abilities content me with a little light, so that I seek no further for the Spirit of life.
Teach me then what to do.
Should I merely humble myself and not stir up my heart?
Should I meditate and use all means to bring him near, not being contented by one means, but trust him to give me a blessing by the use of all, depending only upon, and waiting always for, thy light, by use of means?
Is it a duty or an error to pray and look for the fullness of the Spirit in me?
Am I mistaken in feeling I am empty of the Spirit because I do not sense his presence within, when all the time I am most empty and could be more full by faith in Christ?
Was the fullness of the Spirit in the apostles chiefly a power, giving the subsistence outside themselves in Christ, in whom was their life and joy?
Teach me to find and know fullness of the Spirit only in Jesus.
