Peaceful Weekend

The past weekend was one of those that just renews and refreshes you. I've felt much more peace lately and I'm just soaking that all in. It's incredible to feel such a newness in my spirit and to feel so light and burden free. I'm not exactly sure what's changed in me, but I know God had something to do with it ;-).

Friday my mom and I spent some time together after she had her taxes prepared. It was a nice relaxed time including a quilt shop and Lowes. RL and I started off our night with a dinner sponsored by our youth at church. They were showing Fireproof following the dinner, but we decided not to stay since we'd already seen the movie. We then did a bit of shopping and went to see another movie at the theater. The movie we saw wasn't that great, but it was just nice to have a date night out. We didn't get home till around 1am, but it was so nice just to have fun together.

Saturday we had planned on going out of town to get RL's eyes examined and for some shopping, however we were unable to find an office that would see RL. So we decided to just sleep in and spend the day close to home. Since it was so amazingly beautiful and warm, we decided to take a drive and spend some time out and about. On a whim we decided to drive down to a local lake. By the time we got there the sun was starting to set on the water. It was so gorgeous. I wish I had taken my camera. I took a few shots right before we left with my cell phone. The sun was just setting over the mountains. Ahhh, what a peaceful setting.

Sunday I had the typical church day. That afternoon was my first meeting as a member of the women's core leadership team. I haven't written about this yet, but recently I was placed on this team. I agreed to a 2 year term and will be working closely with the ladies ministry, both in the church and in the community. I’m both excited and anxious about what that will mean for my future in ministry.

And here's a few pictures of my Saturday at the lake. You can see a bit of new hair cut too.

I really like how relaxed we both look in these pictures. I'm seeing new facebook photos, don't you?


P.S. A prayer request....I'm contemplating starting a neighborhood women's bible study. It has been on my mind for months, but I haven't given any real serious thought to it. I'm now praying about it and seeing if this is something that I should pursue.

Quite Random

I've gotten really behind in blogging lately. I read many blogs and often neglect my own in the process. So today's entry will be quite random and filled with pictures.

First of all, a few late Christmas photos of our godchildren.

Genna enjoying the hat and scarf I made for her.

Genna's 'reading' her new book to everyone. Noah just enjoyed a nice bottle there in the background.

Next we had a lovely visit with my cousin Adrian and her family. I so enjoyed seeing her mothering her little Grayson. Grayson is so precious and it literally broke my heart to leave him. As we were leaving I couldn't hold the tears back. I miss both of them terribly.Grayson and I lounging on the couch.

Monday we took Genna to Fun Factory for a nice play day out.

Only in the south would you see a cow milking attraction/game. Genna was so cute looking up at the enormous cow.

One finally picture as we were leaving to head home.


Next Entry: Look forward to new haircut pics.
