no name post

Sometimes thinking of a title for every post stresses me out.  I am choosing not to title this one...and yes, I realize that in calling it "no name post", I am titling it.  Oh well.  Who knows what will happen for the next one.  ;)

We did some fun things this weekend.  Including getting this pretty little thing:


It's been ages since I've gotten a new purse.  I found this one at Target and fell madly in love.  It's kinda hard to tell in this picture, but the color is a bright, poppy color.  Think coral on steroids.  I've been carrying it by the handles, but it's got a strap you can lengthen to wear it cross-body style.  I love it!

I got to hang out with my mom for a few hours on Saturday.  It's been a long time since we've done anything together, since before Christmas, I think, so it was a fun time.  Sometimes a gal just needs her mama, ya know?

I almost feel redundant by telling you how amazing Sunday was.  But it was!  I love the tenth grade girls.  And the ninth grade girls, but I saw the tenth grade ones first.  ;)  We had a sweet time of getting caught up with everything, and we started a new study together.  It's on being spiritually disciplined...and let me just say that if I had this book in my life as a teenager, I would have been in a lot better shape!  I am so thankful for the youth pastor of these kids, and that he is doing such a great job of shepherding them along the way.  I love hearing them talk about him, and especially when it's something that he's been talking about in church.  I love that they listen and that they just get it.

I would not trade our Sunday mornings for anything in all of the world...and that same thing can be said of Sunday nights.  We have home groups each week and this is quite possibly one of my favorite things of all time.  This week was extra special, because we got to hear all about a mission trip some of the girls went on to Guatemala.


These girls have part of my heart.  To hear each of them share what God did in this trip, and how He broke their heart over something that breaks His, had me in tears.  It was a night that I didn't want to end, and one I won't ever forget.  My boys would be so blessed to marry girls like these, and being around them reminds me to pray for their future spouses.

Speaking of marriage, and relationships, that is one thing we talk a lot about.  They're at the age where they love stories of romance, and any time I tell them anything at all about my marriage, they're all like, "Awwwwwww!!", with a bunch of giggling that follows.  :)

I love that.  And I love them.

I found this picture that I love today.


It's always good to be reminded to enjoy the differences in yours and your spouse's personalities.

I stayed home from Bible study tonight because my poor hubby is sick.  I'm hoping it's not a virus, but if is, I'm praying that nobody else gets it.  He already said he was going to sleep on the couch if he still felt sick when he goes to bed.

Also, an update on my sister Terri, who has been in the ICU for two weeks now...she is having a lung biopsy tomorrow afternoon.  Please keep her in your prayers...I know she's tired and worn down, and answers would be great, so they could properly treat whatever is going on with her lungs.  Thanks, and I'll keep you posted.

Enjoy your night!  Love to all.

Sounds like you had a great weekend! I will continue to pay for your sister! One of my friends is on DWTS this time so we are all so excited!!! I think I'm more nervous than she is! :)

Thank you, I did! Our weekends are so much more relaxed now that we homeschool...I feel like I don't have to cram things in like I used to. Thank you for praying for my sister! I was wishing tonight that I could be there with her, but I know she's in good hands with her husband and daughter, who will be getting there tomorrow and is closer to my age than she is.

Who is your friend? I just finished watching it!
