God is GOOD!
Just when you feel like you can't handle any more...... He steps in and renews you.

In spite of the fact I didn't get to spend the weekend with my family, we all had a wonderful weekend! A and I were at a retreat, each of us with our own assignments that left us without each other directly. I haven't talked about it much (at all?), but we are part of a group of ordinary people who get together to pray and work toward God's greater good. If I give too much information, it would be rather easy for anyone to figure out who I am with a few searches and such.

Anyway, aside from a big hiccup in the schedule Saturday night - or rather something that was out of everyone's control - we had a fantastic weekend praying and praising and drawing ourselves closer to God. Perhaps you don't know just how important my faith is in my life - perhaps I am silent about it here... But, let me tell you, after the week I had last week, I wondered how my heart could handle much more.. But, God knew I'd be able to handle it all because of the upcoming weekend's renewal.

The girls had a blast bouncing from sitter to grandmimi's to friends' houses, they thought it was one huge playdate weekend. :)

Yesterday, was our 7th wedding anniversary. I have to say that the highlight of the day was watching our 5 year old offer her arms up in praise to our Father and asking for abundant blessings for herself. I know it's not romantic or directly related to our marriage, but when I think of the day 7 years ago when I married my husband - not one thought was given to what the future might really hold. We could not have imagined the beauty and wonder and awe and LOVE that would pour forth from our marriage. Sure, we loved each other then - but it is NOTHING compared to what we feel now. With each day that passes, I appreciate my partner more and feel even more blessed to be united with him. Happy Anniversary, Sweetheart.

We did have a great weekend, but it has created a lot of work for me - I've taken a small p/t job and I have an assignment to complete this afternoon.

I hope you all are enjoying beautiful fall weather. And if you're the praying type, please keep Bill and Jane in your prayers as their family and other friends celebrate their lives and honor them today.
.
Until next time, God Bless you.
