First solo weekend in our new home!

This weekend was the first weekend that we were in the house the entire weekend with just us as a family!

It was fantastic!

Friday night, we picked up daddy from work and headed for a fun dinner at Steak and Shake!
Saturday morning, we got up and around so that we could get groceries at Walmart before the crowds hit.  We made gumbo for Sunday, and Tim and I hooked up our new Blu Ray player so that we could watch Argo Saturday night.  It was a GREAT movie!

Sunday morning, we went to church and Sunday school for the first time in a month!  I was missing going so badly.  I've been to Bible study and AWANA, but I need that worship time on Sunday morning.

We sang "At Calvary" during service, and the words resonated with me so much. 

"Mercy there was great, and grace was free; 
Pardon there was multiplied to me; 
There my burdened soul found liberty, at Calvary!"

I get so emotional thinking about how grace was free.  It is impossible for someone to understand the good news and love of Christ without first understanding that we are sinners incapable of saving ourselves.  

"Oh, the love that drew salvation’s plan!

Oh, the grace that brought it down to man!
Oh, the mighty gulf that God did span

At Calvary!"

This time of year is always super emotional for me.  The Easter season has became a time of reflection for me.  Thinking upon what Christ did for us, sets me at awe.

The first part of this week is going to be busy for me, but I'm looking forward to slower, warmer days!  We are going to the park after school today to celebrate today's warm weather.  Come Spring!


  1. I am so, so ready for Spring as well! Can't wait to see you guys SOON!!!


I always love hearing from you!
