I was able to spend some much needed time with friends processing all that I am working through.
There is something about just laying it all out there with those that "get it."
They don't have to be experiencing the same things, but in the midst of shared emotions over our various struggles/burdens there is community.
It is beautiful and refreshing to the soul. It is what God intended for His people.
This morning was spent with a group of women in celebration of a new birth! Experiencing the joy of mother as she shares her new little one is also refreshing.
This is my friend's 4th child, first girl. She was so cute as she opened all the "girly" gifts. It is a whole new world for her, and it was fun to share in that joy!
I dropped Cody off at church this morning to go with the youth group to Heavenfest. He is entering into a whole new realm of his own of youth activities.
He will be gone all day. That feels really weird.
Tonight, I am cooking dinner. Yes, you read that right, a real meal.
Our neighbors gave us some corn so I made this with it. It is delicious. I did make a few adjustments. I used red and green bell peppers instead of those mentioned in the recipe. I also added garlic. It is really good.
On the menu for tonight: Parmesan Chicken, Squash, Corn Salsa and Chips, and Watermelon.
My kids' bodies might go into shock from the "real" food that I am making them tonight!
