One more week. I am really starting to get excited to interact with everyone again. This time off has been so good for me, but I am ready to know what y'all are doing!!!
I had a great week and as we head into the week before Easter, there is so much to be thankful for! For a Savior that gave His life "once for all" to cleanse each one of us of our sins (Hebrews 8 &9). I have been feeling overwhelmed at that fact as I try to wrap my mind around how much Jesus loves me.
Next time I will post will be Easter....what a great day to be able to visit and say "He is Risen!"
Here's my week:
I have a meeting after church and made a 7 layer salad for the lunch...one of my favs!
We had to have Lily's teeth cleaned under anesthesia.....not cheap. So we are trying to be good at brushing her teeth weekly......she doesn't like it much.
Tonight my life group made dinner for 50 Urban YoungLife kids. We had a blast interacting with them and loved the chance to serve and love on them a bit.
One of the ladies in my bible study brought me these today to thank me for leading the study. They are so beautiful!
The flowers are absolutely gorgeous in my yard right now. The azaleas are at their peak and so vibrant! And my roses are already starting to bloom.
Alyssa and I came home today and saw this strange bug/bird? flying around my flowers. It looked like it was part bee (because it had bright yellow and black strips on it's rear end) and part hummingbird, only it flew much slower. We were fascinated by it. Finally I remember to go get my camera but it was gone by the time I got back...ugh. So we went in and started googling it. It turns out it is a "clear winged hummingbird moth". I had no idea there was such a thing!! And now am so sad I didn't get a picture!!!
got these off the internet.
So there you have my week! Hope your was great. And I hope you will take some time this week to reflect on what Jesus did for you, once and for all. We tend to, at times, focus on the resurrection, but with out this week and the cross, there would be no resurrection. I think we need to remember all He went through for our sin, so that we don't take it for granted....which our nature tends to do.
See you in a week!
