A busy weekend

Sorry, I’ve been missing this weekend – it was a bit crazy.
Saturday morning I went to a Beth Moore simulcast conference. It was her newest book, “So Long, Insecurity”, which I haven’t read. Now, this was the first conference I’ve been to with her. I’ve done several of her studies though. I have to say (just personal preference) I really like her studies more. It may be just cause I really wanted/needed something more in depth that what we got on Saturday, but I didn’t get as much out of it as I was hoping to. I only got to hear the first half, since I had to get back home to Lydia and I was told that the second half was cut off due to the weather (lightning was messing up the simulcast feed). She made some great points, and I did enjoy it, but I really like digging deeper with her studies! One of the things that stood out the most, was when she said that insecurity and humility are on two different planes. You can be secure in who you are- as a Christian, a mom, whoever, and still be humble in Christ. But also, insecurity is a form of pride. When you are living your life second guessing everything because you are insecure in yourself, then everything rolls back onto you – therefor you are self focused, not God focused.

Saturday evening was spent celebrating my mother-in-law’s birthday. We had a great time but made the mistake of letting our already overtired 3 year old have some brownie and ice cream. He was up every hour until 1am with night terrors. It was horrible. He has had them since he was about 3 months old, but it has been so long since he had any problems. I should have known though, that it was not a smart idea to give him sugar right before bed. Even though I controlled the amount and gave him only 3 little bites, it was still enough to mess him up. It is a terrifying experience and I pray he grows out of them. I remember the first one he ever had, we were having a bible study at our house and he had fallen asleep after nursing. About 15 minutes later he just started screaming – an odd, piercing scream that he’d never made before. It scared everyone in the room. I spent the next few minutes trying to wake him up and console him, then trying to get him back to sleep. He had a few off and on over the next year or so, then they slacked off. He had another when he was around 2 1/2 – that one was equally as horrible as the first one, because instead of just screaming, he was calling out for me and reaching, kicking…it was bad.
This last time was so sad, because he would wake up crying and screaming, but didn’t know why. So, then he would cry because he was sad and didn’t understand why he woke up sad. Needless to say, it was a long night for all of us!

Sunday was church and catching up on sleep missed Saturday :).

Monday, our 7th anniversary…another post, it’s too long for this one 🙂
