Saturday evening ramblings

I took this on the way down to my Mom's house a few weeks ago.

First off I would like to thank everyone for lifting Annabelle up in prayer. Her mom, Krista, wrote about their terrifying day and how everything is going now. Annabelle is stable, they are still trying to figure out what is going on with her. Please continue to lift her, her family and her doctors up in prayer.

We had church this evening and little Ainsley couldn't have been more excited. She asked for several hours this afternoon if it was time to go. That makes me so happy to hear. Abby did GREAT in the nursery this evening! Yippee! Adison was so excited, one of her best buddies was there tonight, they squealed when they saw one another. {Girls are so much fun!} Church was wonderful. We were studying Philippians 4: 10-13 and finding our contentment in Christ. K and I both agreed that tonight's service was amazing and very convicting. We laughed about it though because we pretty much say that every time, ha ha!

We got back in town yesterday evening just fine. I was slightly worried about the drive because of all of the construction, but everything was a-okay. Abby slept about half of the way home and the bigs and I talked about our cats.

We went out for lunch today with my dad and step-mom. It was a really nice time. I love having *most* of my family here in town. {My mom & step-dad{who's bday was yesterday} live about two hours to the south of us.} My brother, sister-in-law and niece live in town as well.

I was super psyched, at Target today I got Abby a pair of sandals for $3.24!!! Yep, that's right! I love scoring a deal like that!

We are planning on doing Adison's back to school shopping tomorrow. We got her school calendar in the mail so I spent part of this evening putting everything in my phone. I can't believe that school is starting soon! I think it starts in about 3 1/2 weeks.

I have written about Miss Getty before. Getty has a disease called SMA1. Her parents are doing all they can to find a cure for this awful disease. Please check out their blog to find about a great idea called "Tell 5!"

The kids are all in bed, I am watching some HGTV and my mind is just wandering. I really want to work harder on being completely content. To give everything to Christ and rest secure in Him. I told K tonight that I really felt this when we were going through all of our miscarriages. Then we couldn't have done life ourselves, we HAD to rely on Him. Now that we aren't going through that {hellooooo hysterectomy} it's almost as if I have taken it all back. Well, not *all* but I have in some sense. I need to get back to contentment, to relying on and to giving everything to Him. That is what I am really going to work on. Our pastor tonight talked about a bunch of situations that we try to take control of in our lives. The one that really got me is parenting. I need to give up the stress and worrying and give it to Christ. 


  1. Amen, to that girlfriend! Sometimes we got to let go and let God take control.

    Have a good evening / night

  2. Boo to school shopping already! My goodness summer still flies by even when your not in school!
