Happy Monday, friends. I'm linking up with Tanya from The Other Side of the Road for this blog post.
The weekend had its highs and lows. I won't get into the lows, but it put a definite damper on the days that should have been mostly fun and relaxing. I did some grocery shopping for our church on Friday night and on Saturday, my sisters came and picked me up at ten fifteen. I am so glad I was with them for the whole day—I needed time with them and they helped me feel better about a situation I'm going through. We had the best day ever and had so much fun together. We ate lunch, we went to a bakery that Lisa loves and misses, we went to several little boutique type shops and just had a really good day. The weather was cool and a little overcast, so we never even got hot, which made it so nice.
I came home to boys working on trucks and a hubby that was missing. He'd gone to buy a new little toy and this is what I came home to later on after having eaten dinner at my mom's.
I foresee many a night spent out here. I can't wait to watch Hallmark Christmas movies out here with a fire in the fire pit.
Todd sat out there all evening with a variation of the boys, watching college football.
I went to Mom's for dinner (football isn't my fav), so when I got home I watched a Hallmark movie in the living room while they sat outside. I was in bed pretty early, though, because I had to be at church at 8:30 for praise team rehearsal.
I came home for lunch and to rest my eyes for a bit, then was back there at three for choir practice. Todd made a sushi run for us when I got home, and then we sat and started watching The Challenger documentary on Netflix afterward. Most of the weekend was great. I could use some prayer, though—I'm feeling a little discouraged right now.
Even with Jesus, life is hard, friends. I can't imagine life without Him. I am not seeking pity, I promise...but I would sure appreciate a prayer or two to get me through the week. I need to have a clear mind and heart all week, but especially on Wednesday and next Sunday, when I'm helping lead women in worship. God is good all the time and all the time, God is good.
I hope you have a great day! Thanks for reading my blog, I'll see you back here tomorrow, hopefully. Love to all.
