This past week, much of it has been spent working on our church’s cookbook! It sure has been fun to see all of the recipes come in and yes it’s a lot of work, but as with any project, it’s always worth it in the end! Not a whole lot new this week, so I’m just going to show you the few pictures I did take!
This girl sure loves her tattoos!
Mazy LOVES to go to youth group events, but sometimes it’s hard to stay awake on the way home!
Hanging out with cousins at the park! Mazy finally had the guts to ride the zipline, thanks to her cousins!
Getting height at the end is the key and fun part!
This 34 year old girl had to try her hand at it too
Felt like a little kid again!
I am trying to soak in all that I can this fall, since last year I feel like I completely missed the season! It just brings so much into perspective when you have experienced a season in life in such a different way. It reminds me of how fragile life is, how every day truly is a gift, and we just never know what our tomorrows look like. Last year one day I was walking to the park and 2 days later being flown in a helicopter. We just NEVER know. I find myself choosing my battles better now that I know there have been days that I had no choice, but to let things go when maybe 2 years ago I would have flipped a lid. You know what I mean? God sure gives us perspective when He needs to, doesn’t He?
In other words, I am just living this season with thankfulness, a humbled heart, and recognition that life, in a split second, can be thrown upside down. That’s why I’m going to keep looking UP and not let the worries of this world weigh me down. Easy to say, hard to do, but that’s my mission! In fact, side note as I type this, Dan’s transmission went out on his vehicle this week and of course it just never seems like good timing, right? Rainy fall weather, money-wise, and as Dan says, it just feels like so many things are breaking – including my heart! We sometimes feel like we are falling apart over here, but we just laugh. Truly. We honestly chuckled and thought okay, it’ll be alright. God sure keeps us on our toes and we know it’s just another test of the faith, but God has been faithful. Time and TIME again. Sometimes it feels like just “one more thing”, but no need to lose sleep over it b/c I feel like through my health, God has proved time and time again that He’s got our back. Thankfully it’s still semi-drivable…it just doesn’t always switch to the next gear…so if you see Dan going mighty slow down the road, that’s b/c it decided to not switch over. So feel free to laugh…we will be too!
