This week’s learned, links, and thankfulness…
Thankful for dinner with a new friend and hearing about God’s redemption story in her life.
Super excited and grateful that our 6th year of homeschooling is starting to wind down. We are looking forward to summer.
I’m in a redecorating mood, so I’ve been pinning lots to my DECORATE board.
I re-watched Sabrina (the 1954 version) this week and remembered how much I love old movies. I used to watch them all the time when I was a kid. An Affair to Remember was my all-time favorite movie.
Vintage and denim lovers… there are lots of good things on sale from Fair Season.
I was moved by my pastor’s tribute to his first pastor, who happened to be my first pastor too. I am encouraged to write letters to the people who have influenced and shaped my life, and let them know exactly how much of an impact they have had.
How beautiful is this…”God’s plan to make his grace known to the world is not for a bunch of perfect people to live together in perfect harmony, but rather, for sinful people to cling desperately to Jesus, even in the hardest instances. ” This is from the article, Every Good Church is Messy. I also love when it states this, “God is bringing people of different backgrounds, nationalities, socioeconomic statuses, and spiritual maturity levels together (Ephesians 3:10). The church’s diversity is a beautiful thing, and part of the beauty is that it grows us by bringing us into orbit with people unlike us — sometimes with people who are hard to love.” How much this rings true in our church family.
It’s Mother’s Day tomorrow and we look forward to celebrating with my mom, and I think Ben and the girls have a little something planned. Happy Mothering Day to all those whose hearts have been given to serving and shaping the lives of others!
