FRIDAY is here!!!

Been a busy week, but full of blessings. My heart is full and I am tired, but thankful! I have my hubs back home, we have full bellies, we are healthy, have a warm home, wonderful family and friends, we are blessed in abundance!!Yes I do get weary and my heart aches for people and friends and sometimes the things that life throws at us, but when I keep my focus on Jesus and the blessings I have, I couldn't be more blessed.

Last weekend we met up with some friends at the pumpkin patch and went out to eat for some sushi with another wonderful couple. Abigail and I also participated in the walk for Apraxia for one of our precious little friends from church. The kids participated in crazy hair night at AWANA, while the hubs and I went out for dinner, sometimes parents need time away from the children. Monday we started back to school after a little fall break, the hubs smoked some meat and we had guests over for dinner, Tuesday was our MOM Group and Aidan's last t-ball game for the season, Wednesday Abigail had horse lessons and we spent time with our church family, today is Friday movie night with my kiddo's! This weekend we have a birthday party to go and the kids are excited to dress up in their costumes for AWANA Fall fun!

This week we also shopped for our Operation Shoebox items and put them together. Something Abigail has been doing for a few years, we enjoy picking out items and making a card to ship in our box. I love the ministry and how a shoebox full of items can make a difference in a child's life. If you haven't heard about Operation Christmas Child check out the ministry here:  http://www.samaritanspurse.org/what-we-do/operation-christmas-child/

I am learning to run freely
Understanding just how He sees me
And it makes me love Him more and more
He’s Greater
He’s Greater
If only we weren’t so busy. If only we made room for still. We could live a thousand lives and learn a million words and be accomplices to miracles. Without ever leaving home. http://www.graceuncommon.com/live-thousand-years/

God is still saying “yes” to your life. He is still saying “yes” to you being here. He is still saying “yes” to His plans for you. http://www.incourage.me/2014/10/youre-wanted.html

God calls us to be COMMITTED! We should strive to live according to His word and rebuke the threat of casual! http://unveiledwife.com/devotional-are-you-a-committed-wife-or-a-casual-wife/
