It's been a birthday week for S.
Monday she had dinner with friends.
Tuesday (her actual birthday) we took her to dinner.
Wednesday was just dinner and youth celebration at church.
Thursday I had a mission team meeting (good stuff!) Then I took S to see the midnight opening of New Moon. oh my goodness!!! I am way too old to be out that late on a school night! ;o) It was fun, she was thrilled and we had some great mom and daughter time.
Friday night was her birthday party here at the house. We had the usual 25 + kids here to celebrate. This time we had a fire pit in the back yard and they roasted hot dogs and made s'mores. It was a great night. ;o)
Saturday I had to get up early to drive to Richmond for the United Methodist Mission Team Leader training. It was really good. I rode with friends so it made the ride that much more fun, and the 2 hours went by quickly.
By Saturday night I was done. Stick a fork in me and put me to bed. Done.
Today's church service was great. Pastor spoke about worry and why we shouldn't do it. It's not a new message but one that it never hurts to hear over and over again! We then went to lunch with our Sunday school class. That was fun, all our little kids hanging out and playing. I got to hold our Sunday school teacher's month old baby girl. What a joy that was!!! oh precious tiny thing!
Tonight was the perfect ending to a crazy week. We had a couple over that we love dearly, along with my mother in law. We ate dinner and then proceeded to pray over our house. We started in the master bedroom, then moved on to each and every room in the house. We prayed God in and prayed Satan out. It was powerful and moving and amazing. We had never intentionally prayed over the house and the other day I just felt strongly that it was something we needed to do. There has been some weirdness going on with attitudes and sadness and anger and I wanted it gone from the home. God has intentionally been invited in, and Satan ordered out. Praise the Lord!
This week I will be focusing on all the things I am thankful for... it's something I try to do each year at this time. Although we really should do it all year long huh? ;o)
Tonight I am thankful for my God. He is first and foremost the most important thing in my life. Without Him I would be nothing. I would not have any of the other things I am thankful for. So tonight I give God all the glory and honor for all things.
Blessings to you all!
