How was your weekend? As always, ours was pretty busy. Friday night I came home and tried to get some things accomplished before I had to head back out at 9:00 p.m. to pick up my son who went on a field trip that day. On the way home, he fell asleep in the car. I cannot remember the last time that boy fell asleep in the car. I told my husband, "Well, you can bet I won't be carrying him in the house!" We left home on Friday morning at 6:00 because he had to be at school at 6:40. They had one long day! He texted me around 10:00 or so and told me that he did not put a sd card in the camera. My poor son! He really needs to learn to double check things he does. I simply thought to myself, "This is one time that momma cannot fix it, son!"
Saturday my son and I worked the Harvest Festival at our new church. We had so much fun. I headed up the class for t-shirt painting and I so enjoyed the children. There was this one little guy that I especially had fun with. It is great to see them all attending church and being fed the Word. They choose this alternative to trick or treating, and we made it very fun for them. Check out my pictures if you are on my facebook page.
Yesterday, my son and I went to Richmond to get his senior pictures taken, along with Foxie Anne, of course. He was adamant that he wanted her in some of his pictures, and I was so surprised at how well she did. The pictures turned out great and I love them all. Still hard to wrap my head around the fact that he is graduating.
If you read my article entitled, "Overcoming Addictions", then you know that today is the first day of a real challenge for me as I try to overcome an addiction in my life. I have all sorts of mixed emotions, and yes even fear. Isn't that sort of crazy ... the fear thing!? I do not get why, but I have butterflies in the pit of my stomach when I think about this challenge in my life. Fear?! Really? Why? It is not as if this challenge will be painful ... well, it may be painful emotionally and mentally, but there are no physical withdrawals. Why in the world would I be fearful? Because the enemy knows if he fills me with enough fear and trepidation, then I will lose the battle before I ever begin. Please ... I cannot say this enough or ask it enough ... keep me in prayer throughout today and the days ahead. I am so going to need them.
I have saved the best for last ... God is AWESOME!!! My husband gave his heart to Christ on Friday night and took his first communion on Sunday. Again, what a difference a day can make! I have prayed for this for six years, and I am sure his grandparents and parents have prayed about it even longer. He is so joyful over his decision, and it is so wonderful to watch him as he dwells in the Word, seeking answers. Our life will be so different. No, I do not expect things to instantaneously change overnight, but I can tell you that I am already seeing BIG changes. I am so going to enjoy this. I will finally have certain things I have dreamed about for years. We are finally "evenly yoked" though not evenly mature in our walk, but it will all come together. I am one happy woman!!!
Have a great week!
