Special Date


Dinner before the show!




















We went on a special date. Just the two of us!! We had Mexican for dinner and the we were off to see the ballet! A full length showing of Snow White at Savannah Arts Academy! It was amazing! Our dear friend Christina Powell was the Artistic Director and what a fantastic job she did! I have to give a shout out to Trellis Payne and her art students and their artistic ability to help create props, sets and make-up! We love our girl time together and especially a ballet!
She was loving the pics in the program!

melt.your.heart.

Love this man and love how tender he is with our children.

past few weeks....


A few days (weeks) have passed since the last entry... SORRY!


We have had some awesome family time in NC the past few weeks. 


Unfortunately, we had to initially go there for a funeral, for a man Scott and I loved dearly, Papa. We will miss him greatly...but we know he is with Jesus and that is a celebration!

We got to go to the park and on a picnic and enjoy the perfect weather! Hendersonville has such nice seasons and it truly was spring... It was gorgeous!

I then headed back to Savannah for our first Missions Meeting! I was so excited to meet all the other people going to Ecuador on our team! {Side note: Scott had to miss the meeting due to his grandfather being really ill in Michigan, he went to visit him, so I represented us both at the meeting!} This team is strong and there are a lot of veterans and I am thankful for that! We talked about our fears and our expectations and it was awesome to hear so many perspectives of what  the trip will bring.



I then hit downtown with my bestie, Corrie, for St.Patrick's Day! It was a blast to hang with my girlfriends!!

Me and Corrie! {disregard Todd in the background!}

This video is the music of the town on St. Patrick's Day! Gorgeous Bagpipes!




I then headed back to Hendersonville to pick up the children where we stayed a few more days!

The Flowers were so pretty at Grandma's house!!
My girl and her baby! 




 
Pear Tree blooms were everywhere and gorgeous!



I will praise you, O Lord, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonders. Psalm 9:1

devotional

I love sitting down to read The Women of Faith Devotional Bible. It has really clear devotions on faith, hope, joy, and grace that are encouragement for everyday! It has helped me tremendously when studying scripture and learning HOW to read the Bible, because let's be honest, the Bible can be intimidating. I also find that reading or looking up scripture is so much easier with the NLVersions of The Bible. It's amazing how much I have grown in Faith just by reading the Bible! :)


Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong. Let all that you do be done with love.
 1 Corinthians 16:13,14

Good Read

A really good read Scott sent to me in the Huffington Post," Apologies to the Parents I Judged..." I am guilty of this, too! Follow this link.

wow...

I came home from church on Wednesday night and apparently Kendall had negotiated her way and got to fall asleep on the couch "waiting" for mommy! When I walked in the door, all I could see was her eyeshadow!! She REALLY did it up this time!

Moved to tears

We received our first missions support check in the mail today. It was from my grandmother. I, of course, burst into tears about the note she wrote us about going to Ecuador.

 My favorite part of the letter was: "May God work in your hearts as you see these people coming to Christ, which is the real meaning of life on earth-to love other people and help supply their needs." I was so moved by those words and she is so right about helping and loving people is the message of God and TRUE Christianity.

I am so thankful to God for her and her contribution to our trip!
 

For we walk by Faith, not by sight. 2 Corinthians 5:7
