Hi everyone! It’s Friday. More important than that, it’s Good Friday. There is so much importance and power in this day, such remembrance, such humility–knowing that we weren’t and aren’t worthy at all. This week I decided to link up with the beautiful ladies from A Little Bit of Everything, Grace and Love, and Momfessionals for Friday Favorites. Here’s my Week At A Glance.
Palm Sunday was April 14th. I had a beautiful experience in the sanctuary. I woke up that morning with such joy and such humility. I was just thinking about how Jesus rode into the city knowing that the same people who were shouting accolades to Him were the same ones who would be yelling crucify Him days later. He still chose to go forward. He still chose to follow His Father’s will. God truly is an amazing God.
After such a beautiful experience, I started feeling very ill. I felt lightheaded, woozy, and generally unwell. This went on for such a while that members of the nurse’s ministry were watching me to make sure I was okay. I was given juice and crackers and water. After a few more minutes, it was decided that I should go home and rest as I was starting to have contractions as well. I really didn’t want to do that as I felt like I should have been there, but it clear that I needed the rest. I came home and after wrestling with baby A. finally got a chance to rest myself.
Before I laid down, I took a couple of pictures of baby A. wearing her new dress from one of our favorite children’s boutique. She looked adorable.
The next day I was feeling a bit better and went to work. Before I went in, I stopped by the office cantina to get my watermelon fix for the morning. When I came outside, I saw the most beautiful cloud bank showing the storm that would be showing us love later in the day. I have to tell you, I’m a HUGE fan of storms and will pull over to the safe side of the road just to watch new clouds come in. This was beautiful.
Honeybee and Bug are visiting my mother for Spring break, so they have been enjoying themselves nonstop. My mom sent me a couple of pictures of them after going to the movies and visiting the park. It’s safe to say they are truly enjoying themselves.
