Project 365 - Week 5

 Week 5.

I can not believe the mild weather we are having here!  Don't get me wrong, I am not complaining but it is just weird.

God has been working on my heart all's been hard, but it's been good.  Not really anything I can or want to blog about, however I am continually overwhelmed by the goodness and faithfulness of my God.  I am so very thankful that I KNOW that HE is ultimately in control and that He has my best interest in mind.  I don't know how you deal with life without that knowledge.  And I want to extend to any of my blogging friends.....if you don't know that to be true and want to talk about it, I would love to share with you what I know to be true.  Just email me at sarawbowyerATmsnDOTcom and we will connect.

Here's my week:

 I received this precious letter from a child in my SS class this afternoon. 

 Today I had lunch with my bff, Wendi, and she took me out to the land they just purchased.  This will be the view from the front of their house....nice!

Me and my friend, Haven, worked this afternoon on getting all our Fine Arts Council books and paperwork in order.  It feels good to get it organized!

 My husband's HS baseball team was inducted into the Kansas baseball hall of fame in 2009.  This year for Christmas, I bought him his Hall of Fame ring and it just came.  It is ginormous!!!  But how many guys can say they have a Hall of Fame ring?!!

 I went to meet the newest member of our congregation today....Zoe.
Oh my word, she is beautiful!!!

 It's a popcorn-for-dinner kind of day.
We also watched the movie Moneyball......great movie!

 We traveled to Arkadephia today for Jared's all-state tryouts.  Here he is practicing with some friends.  sadly, his nerves got the best of him and he didn't make it.  Hurts my mama's heart.

But I came home to find this special gift in the mail for me from my dear friend LuAnn!!!
I LOVE it!
 It's hard to model and take the picture of yourself too...blurry.

Hope you are having a great start to Feb!

That Zoe is precious :) So sorry Jared didn't make it. Competitions are tough to me!

I'm starting to get jealous of the LuAnn hats :)

StephieAnne said...

Oh, my heart breaks for Jared when I know he is so good....there must be a higher plan in place.

That ring is HUGE, but what a cool honor!

Enjoy those warm temps - we're in the mid-40's here, but at least it's been sunny. =)

LuAnn said...

Awwww - you look so cute in your hat. Glad you like it.

Sorry about Jared :( his gifts will be used in some other way.

Robin @ Be Still and Know said...

What a sweet apology note.....and an even sweeter baby!

Love the hat, popcorn for dinner...movies are my favorite thing.

I can't believe that I got my ducks in a row and got my post up today instead of late tomorrow afternoon!


Cathy said...

I love the hat and you look adorable in it.

Angie said...

Sweet note!

Love dreaming with friends.

How fun is that ring! So cool.

Precious Zoe! What a cutie!

ArkadeLphia? Just wondering. :)
Sorry Jared! That's a bummer! Been there. Other great things await!

Love the hat! I don't look good in hats so I'm a little jealous of others who do. Enjoy!

So excited I posted on time. What a switch!

I love the hat! I am going to try to get my sister to make me one.

Kim said...

That hat is perfect for you!
Looks like another jam-packed week at your house :) I love popcorn-for-dinner nights! So sorry to hear Jared didn't make it. That is definitely a ginormous ring! Very cool distinction for your hubby :)

Have a wonderful week!

Sweet Baby.
Ginormous Ring.
Now I must have popcorn!!!
LOVE the hat ... LOVE it!


Love the hat! Awesome about the baseball team and the Hall of Fame...the ring is huge! My daughter played French Horn when she was in school. I love the sound.

I'm sorry to hear that tryouts didn't go as well as y'all hoped. It is so hard to learn to deal with disappointment- at any age.

The ring is VERY cool! And I love the hat, it is perfect for you!

Lisa said...

I'm so sorry you are going through a rough time. I know, like you, that God is faithful.

You have Streams in the Desert, don't you? So many good, encouraging things to read there.

Love your hat, love mine too!

momma frans said...

cool ring! that's such a neat thing to have "bragging rights" to!

Michelle said...

Ah, that letter from one of ss littles at church was precious. Good parent for making him write that. Hmm...I am just assuming the culprit is a he. :)

What an awesome ring your hubby is sporting.
