This is a huge accomplishment for Olivia - we set out to memorize Psalm 23 this summer and she did fabulous! I'm very proud of her and I hope she keeps up the great work.
A psalm of David.
1 The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.
2 He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters,
3 he restores my soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
6 Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.

We had a wonderful time on Saturday at Jack's first birthday party. The theme was baseball! We love our Cubbies, but we loved seeing all our friends show up in their different baseball jerseys from all different teams. Thanks to everyone who came out and helped us celebrate Jack's first birthday.
To complete the baseball theme the menu was popular baseball food like hot dogs, nachos, walking tacos, and of course, ice cold beer!!
I ordered a set of baseball cookie cutters - at first I debated if I should even add the stress of making cookies to it all, but they turned out soooo good and I'm glad I did it!

God, please bless this little boy with a lifetime of happiness and health. Protect him from evil. Help me, as his mother, to encourage him to have a personal relationship with you and help him to always turn to you first. Give me strength to be the mother that I need to be for him. Amen
