I like to end the week with praising God for the good things. I've not been able to make the time the last couple of weeks to do so in a post, and that makes me sad. Because there is always, always, always something I can find to give God praise. I do make sure to praise Him in my prayer time everyday, but I want to write about His goodness as well, hoping to encourage others with His goodness to me. He is not partial to anyone, so His gifts are for all who would want to be His child.
1. I don't think I had shared about my mom, sister and brother-in-law's visit. For the first time in years and years, my Mom was actually here on her birthday and we were able to celebrate together. We went to Lambert's, a restaurant famous for "throwed rolls". We had a wonderful time and discovered the awesome fact that Brody is in love with fried okra!

3. Our ladies went out last Saturday to a quaint boutique / tea room and had lunch together. I enjoyed it so much! I found a cute animal print scarf that also has shades of blue in it, so it went home with me. I've been dreaming about the jewelry I saw there, and a certain hounds-tooth print bag ... I think a return trip might be in order.
4. I just want to say, although we are having high temps still, the air is beginning to feel fabulous! Mornings are cooler, and next week the forecast says highs will be 79-81. Yay!
5. Quote of the week:
How do we rest from adulting? We remember that we are children in God’s capable hands. -Shelly Miller, Rhythms of Rest.
Don't forget her fabulous book comes out NEXT week!
A couple of bonuses:
We are learning this song on our worship team. Of course, we won't sound like this video, but I'm thinking it will be good. I'm ending my week listening to this:
We finished up James 3 at my last teaching session Wednesday night. James is so hard core, I'm always hoping that people are willing to listen. Things went well (as least from my perspective). Now, it's on to James 4.
I've finished up the Annual Church Profile so things are easier at work currently. I'm thankful - it gives my brain breathing room.
I'm anticipating some time at the lake tomorrow. Here in the Midwest, there won't be too many more good weekends to be out and about. I'm hoping to take advantage of the beautiful Saturday forecast for us.
I will need a little R and R, because I'm gearing up for the 31 day Challenge come October 1.
And so wraps up recent weeks on the Journey. What about you? Are you enjoying and savoring this one beautiful life you've been given? I'd love to hear all about it!
