This picture has nothing to do with what's written below. My kids are just cute and I thought I'd share cause I'm nice like that!
I'm so glad it's Friday. We've had a good, but busy week. Its been filled with lots of good things and little drama which is a nice change. I've gotten to spend more time then usual with some of my favorite people. We spent Tuesday morning at an Open House for a program we anticipate being part of Haven's schooling next year. We made progress on some home projects that have been languishing for years, literally. We ate dinner at home every night and had a new recipe four out of five of those nights (all good!). We get to spend tonight with good friends who are about to grow from a family of 3 to a family of 4. Today's been exciting because I chopped my hair off! I've been debating going short after 1.5 years of letting it grow. I woke up this morning and literally couldn't stand it one more minute. So I called a new salon, got an early appointment and by 10:30am, I felt like myself again. At this point in my life, I'm just a short-haired gal. And I like that.
See, all just good, normal stuff.
And then there is this weekend...I get tired just thinking about it! We've had the privilege of being part of a ministry through our church that is starting a food pantry to help families in need in our community. None of us really know what we're doing, but by God's grace and His people getting involved, ten of our local families will get a weeks worth of groceries next week. We've gone from zero to 60 with this ministry in a very short amount of time and we're so excited to see it all coming together this weekend. We've also got another outreach event going on with our home group on Sunday. After a two year break from any type of church/ministry leadership, I'd say we're back with a bang. And I really love it. Mostly. I love getting to serve alongside my friends and meet people's needs and hopefully share the love of Jesus with them. It excites me like nothing else. So Sunday is going to be a little crazy, but a lot good.
Happy weekend, my friends!
