How have your weekends been? Ours seems to have flown by again.
We spent Saturday at my cousins wedding. It was a beautiful day and so lovely to spend time with family we haven’t seen in a year or more!
Sunday was less lovely though, Emma & I had managed to catch a bit of a tummy bug 🙁 So we had a nice cosy day indoors being looked after by Vince 🙂
We both seem to be better today though, so onwards & upwards!
The Weather ::
Wet and grey 🙁 It was raining all night although it seems to have eased up for now. The temperature has dropped rather suddenly as well this weekend, it’s only 11°C/51F.
On my reading pile ::
The Hobbit is still on my bedside table although it’s feeling rather neglected. My bible has been getting rather more of my attention.
I also acquired a copy of The Book of Mormon recently, I’d felt curious about the LDS church for a while but knew so little about them. As it turns out certain members of my family were mormons at one time. However, the more I read and the more I research, I feel I am left with more questions than answers! I am not sure I can reconcile certain aspects of their beliefs with my own faith.
On my TV ::
This week I’ll be watching…
Derren Brown’s Apocolypse
On the menu this week ::
Monday – Smoky Black Bean Soup
I have no idea about the rest of the week, I’m on a mission to use up our store cupboard ingredients so it could be an interesting few days.
On my to do list this week ::
Still a few sewing jobs to get done.
Laundry as ever.
Need to sort out some bills and various finance forms.
What I am sewing, crocheting or creating ::
I still have most of last weeks projects ongoing but they have all taken a back seat to another project…. I’m terrible.
I’m hand stitching an advent calendar for Emma and as it has the earliest deadline and the most work to be done it is my current focus… I’m loving it though!
Looking around the house ::
My smoky black bean soup is cooling on the hob, ready to be reheated for our dinner later. Emma is playing on the floor with daddy before he leaves for work. I have some dishes that need doing and my side table flowers have seen better days. The front room is not looking too bad today as Emma hasn’t pulled all her toys out… yet!

I’ve always wondered about LDS as well, but I can’t bring myself to read the Book of Mormon… Like you, it just leaves me with more questions. Hope you can get some answers and I hope that tummy bug goes away! 🙂
Dont shoot me down here but I do not look at the Mormon faith as a Christian one. Unless I was going to be witnessing to a Mormon, I would not read their material. Satan has a way of making us question our faith at times anyway so I will not give him ammo to confuse me. If I am witnessing to someone of a different religion then I will study theirs, carefully, under prayer.
Just my little thoughts…not to offend.
And The Hobbit!! Lord of the Rings is my number one favorite book ever!! Are you looking forward to the movie coming out in December?!!! Oh I cant wait! You know, I need to find my Hobbit book & re-read before the movie comes out!!
I would love to get a taste of that soup!! I bet it is soooo good!!
I’m know what you mean and I’ve been struggling with my faith a lot recently and have found myself looking in all sorts of places for answers. Ironically, looking into the LDS church has only helped me confirm what I already believed, and that isn’t the Book of Mormon. I found that on the surface it was all quite agreeable and even appealing, but as I looked deeper into certain rituals/ceremonies & beliefs… well it just doesn’t align with my own beliefs. That said I know some lovely mormons and certainly don’t judge them.
I love the Hobbit!!! I think this is my fourth time reading it, I always loved it over The Lord of the Rings. I can’t wait for the movie either! I’m so glad it’s Martin Freeman aswell! I only hope it’s a good adaptation and they haven’t changed too much.
Oh and the soup is rather good… but then I’m biased!!! 🙂
Oops meant to agree with tina leigh. Sorry!
The Bible says that no one can add to or take away from it. Mormons have done exactly that. They are in the same category as Jehovahs Witnesses. They speak the name of Christ, but Joseph Smith is who they follow. They are deceived.
It sounds like you are stronger in your faith then what you are giving yourself credit for. You have discernment so that is good! I do not struggle with my faith but I do struggle with “why” sometimes. I am getting much better. I am learning to trust God more. The Bible is complicated, so I try not to let things I don’t understand trip me up. I stick to the things I do know for sure and trust God is going to enlighten me one day.
Did that make any sense? Lol!
