What a great weekend it has been. Friday evening, our family went to a Young Adult Fellowship where we discussed Gifts of the Spirit. It was an amazing discussion and tied perfectly with the bible class that I am taking. After the teaching and discussion, the remaining attendees played Headbandz while the children played in the playroom downstairs. If you haven’t played, please do. We did a girls against boys and teaming and it was hilarious. Can I tell you how funny it was seeing grown men try and act out what an aardvark was. FUNNY!!! When our eyelids got heavy, we made our way home and put the children to bed. Then, FatherWinter and I enjoyed a bit of us time discussing the bible study we’d had that evening and family plans for future events. It was such a great evening.
Saturday morning, after prepping a healthy breakfast for the family, I went to choir rehearsal with the same young adults from Friday evening. We had an amazing rehearsal and a wonderful fellowship. There is something about 18 to 30-somethings spending time together singing and worshiping God through song. We are preparing for our church’s annual Homecoming. There will be a lot of familiar faces that we don’t usually get to see since everyone has grown and gone off to college or gotten married and started their lives in other places. I know the feeling from my home church and am really looking forward to this service and day. It will be a lot of hard work, but a lot of blessed fun.
When I returned to the house after rehearsal, we spent the rest of the day as a family–just enjoying each other’s company minus the time we let Superbug ride his bike with his friends. It was the perfect time for movies and new recipes. I love my family. I’m so blessed to have them in my life!
Today, we went to church, had a dynamic fellowship, and took Holy Communion. There was a fantastic message about what happens when you follow Christ from a distance and was referring to after Jesus was seized and Peter followed Him from the safety of the courtyard, and subsequently denied him three times. I tell you I really enjoyed the sermon. After church was over and we said our goodbyes to friends and family, we settled in at home for family discussions, outside play, and catching up on Disney movies. We allowed Superbug to stay up a bit past his bedtime to catch Sunday night football and afterwards called it a night.
While this weekend didn’t seem that eventful for us as a family, it was a great time of fellowship for us. I am so very blessed to be mother to my two wonderful children and wife to my wonderful husband. Every day I’m reminded of more and more ways I am blessed just by loving them and being loved in return. God truly is good and I truly love Him.
Have a good evening.
