BFS Assignment #104

BFS #104 - Never Leave Home Without It! Don’t Leave Home Without It! (Marketing Credit: American Express)
Memory Verse: Matthew 28: 20 - Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the world. Amen.

Intro: Never Leave Home Without It (Marketing Credit: American Express) Diapers, bottles, wipes, bibs, pacifiers, extra clothing, cell phone, PDA, ipod, iphone, credit or debit cards … what would you never leave home without?
Assignment: In the memory verse Jesus tells us that He will never leave us, not even at the end of the world. He assures us in this verse that He will be with us and that means through everything we go through in life. I thought it would be interesting to write about the things we would never leave home without. For some it might be baby needs, others it might be a gym bag and bottle of water, and for some it might be your Bible and a notepad or small journal, maybe even your son or daughters favorite blankie! I’d like for you to write about something that you would never leave home without.

Well, there are many things that I would never leave home without. It really depends on where I'm going, and who is going with me. But -- on most occasions, I have to have the keys...that's an obvious one for obvious reasons. I also have my cell phone and purse. We first got cell phones back in 2003 when I was pregnant with our first son, and we haven't looked back. They are a very vital part of our lives, and it offers us a way to keep in touch with each other when the need arises. I also have my purse because it holds most of my important things (driver's license, debit card, checkbooks, calendar, etc).

Now, since I've got a newborn, well, I also have to make sure I've got "all things baby." So, I must carry the diaper bag. I always make sure I've got plenty of diapers, wipes, bottles, toys, snacks, etc. Then, there's the stuff that stays in the van...buggy bagg to cover those germ-infested shopping carts, stroller for when there is no cart, and the smaller stroller for when I don't feel like lugging the larger travel system one around.

So, it's not easy to just up and run out of the house. With that being said, I keep most of what I need waiting by the door. I've learned in my years, that you have to be prepared. So, the diaper bag is always ready (minus the bottles), my purse is ready, and everything else is in the van.

The verse I'll choose for this week is Psalm 119:105: "Thy word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path." This was Caleb's memory verse for the week, and it really hits home because the Bible truly is the only guidance we need in order to make it through this world we live in.

Thanks again for a wonderful assignment. I will leave you with pictures of the diaper bag I'm using at the moment. I hope to down-size at some point. LOL!

What a cute bag. Not like the corny ones I used to use with cartoon figures on em (ok, for the first couple kids-then I got smart).
Blessings for a great weekend and I too have this blog background...love it!

Love your diaper bag! Thanks for stopping by my blog the other day!

Yes, we're in south Georgia and thankful for the tiny bit of cooler temps this week.....If 85 is considered cooler, I suppose!
