five random facts and a question for you

I always love getting to know you guys, and I so enjoy getting to find out random things about people, so I thought I would share some about me too! {I'd so love to hear your random things in the comments if you have 'em!} :D

Anyway, here are five random facts about me:

1. I love {I mean really love...okay, like can't live without} Diet Dr. Pepper. It's so, so good.
2. I graduated from a tiny Christian school, and had 14 other people in my senior class. 
We were a tight group! 

3. My first baby weighed 9lbs, 9oz, and I was induced 5 days after he was due. His birthday just happened to fall right between mine and my husbands- mine is the 17th, hubs is the 23rd, and Elijah was born on the 20th. We have three birthdays in six days!

4. I have no idea how many people are coming to Thanksgiving at my house this year. I've given out at least a dozen extra invitations to friends and strangers trying to share my feast, and I'm crazy excited about it! I would be thrilled if I had one person I invited that showed up! 

5. I've had these verses from Titus 3 on my heart a lot lately, and I just think they are fantastic practical commands for daily living. Sometimes we get overwhelmed at how many commands we have, but these are so simple: 

Remind them to be submissive to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready for every good work, 2 to speak evil of no one, to avoid quarreling, to be gentle, and to show perfect courtesy toward all people. 3 For we ourselves were once foolish, disobedient, led astray, slaves to various passions and pleasures, passing our days in malice and envy, hated by others and hating one another. 
 4 But when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared, 5 he saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit, 6 whom he poured out on us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, 7 so that being justified by his grace we might become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.  
8 The saying is trustworthy, and I want you to insist on these things, so that those who have believed in God may be careful to devote themselves to good works. These things are excellent and profitable for people.
So, so many good things there!! God is so amazing!!

I think a new laundry devotion is coming next week... ;) Wohoo! I've so missed them!! 

Question: What do you guys think about going through a specific section of Scripture starting in January- working together to study God's Word in small chunks each week, with a forum of some kind to discuss it all? I'd love to hear your thoughts if that is something you would be interested in!

Linking up for Five Things Thursday!
