If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

My Weekend

It was a good weekend.  God is so good to me.  I don't deserve His grace, but I sure do appreciate it.  So here's some of what we did.

I woke up early on Saturday and read for a bit and then dosed back off and didn't get up until after 8:00am.  I love starting a Saturday this way.  Hubby and I then headed out for a Saturday drive.  We stopped for lunch at Ponderosa and then headed out to Rocky Fork State Park.  It has a beautiful lake and we just relaxed there and talked and just spent time together.
 
What a beautiful day.  It was so fun watching the boats.  Although they are not in this photo.

Kerri video called while we were there and showed me Colton's first Easter Basket.

Isn't that just too cute.  Colton loves Minions.
 Then it was on to Walmart and our regular Saturday shopping trip only we were a lot farther from home than normal.  Nothing exciting purchased, but definitely needed items.  Then we headed home as I was supposed to meet my sisters and we were running a little late.  When we got home, I helped hubby unload the van and then ran right back out the door to meet my sisters.  Evidently, Lucy was not happy at all that I left.  Hubby sent this picture.


Doesn't she look so dejected.  He said she stayed like that for about an hour.  Poor baby.
My sisters and I went to dinner and then shopped for a bit.  It was a good time.  I really enjoy being with my sisters and am glad we are making an effort to be together at least once most weeks.

 Sunday we went to church and had a wonderful Palm Sunday Service.  The kids' Sunday School teacher brought Palm Leaves for the kids and taught them about Palm Sunday.  They then brought the Palm leaves into church and had them wave them every time God or Jesus was mentioned.  It was so very cool.  I can't believe how many times during the service God or Jesus name was mentioned.  I mean it should be that way, but I just didn't realize how often until I saw the palms being waved.  It really was so very neat to see not only the kids but quite a few of the adults waving those palms.  I can't even explain how it made me feel.  God is so worthy of our praises.

After church, hubby and I had lunch and then went home.  I decided to do my next Virtual 5K for Earth Day.  It was such a beautiful day and perfect for a walk.  Lucy walked almost half of it with me and then I dropped her off at home and finished on my own.  Here's the award.


Earth Day 5K Medal

Sunday evening we went back to church and had a great Bible Study.  Then it was home where I tried to catch up on my Bible Study lessons that I had gotten behind on this week.  And now it's back to work on Monday morning.

Hope you had a great weekend!

  2. Now that's what I call a weekend. :) Tucker does the same thing when I leave the house. They say he mopes at the window until he sees me pull up and then he goes NUTS. Isn't it nice to know that someone loves you that much? :) I miss Palm Sundays at church. I've really got to find another church home. I might be just a bit too picky. The last one we LOVED was one we waited patiently until I just knew God was telling us we were 'home'. I know part of it this time is I'm not doing my part by visiting. I'm out of the habit and need to get back into it. Love that you're doing those 5ks!

  3. Your weekend sounds lovely, and busy! Sounds like a Saturday that I would love! Sunday too. I love the Palm Sunday palm waving at your church. So wonderful to get the children involved like that. And the adults too!!! We have a "home church-Bible study" at our house, and I went out early Sunday morning and cut palmettos for our altar. Didn't think about having the people wave them, but we are a small group of adults. We also had Communion since we don't have a Maundy Thursday service. It was all very special...focusing on Jesus' last week. I am amazed you had energy to do a 5K after all of the other activities. Wonderful!!
