Those days you dread, the ones you have so much to accomplish and not things you want to actually do - well that was today. But, it turned out to be a really nice day. So many times in life we dread things, but if we really believe that the Lord is in control of everything we don't need to dread or even worry b/c we are the ones turning things bad, the Lord has good plans for us (Jer 29:11). Sundays are always hard days for us; early mornings, practice, church and then after the rush then we hit, what do we do now? Today we made it through the Sunday rush, but then had a birthday party to attend, Samuel turned 1 today, it was nice visiting with our friends away from the rush of schedules. Once we left the party, we drove around and looked at houses and trucks, and got Mommy a Dr. Pepper from Wendy's. We arrived back at church at 5:30 for the Worship Night - pretty much everyone wasn't able to come, but it was a really good service with just a few. There was a lot more freedom than a Sunday morning service; quiet and intimate, just what many of us needed - will help us perservere even when things aren't going the way we hoped. Tomorrow Daddy promised to stay home with us and we are looking forward to a nice family day. We will see if that actually happens!
