One. Devotional Time
I asked my Instagram friends last week if they had any recommendations for a good devotional and of course, they came through yet again. Fast forward to my trip to Costco and there it was, starting at me in the face…then I knew that was the one! Jesus Calling has been an AWESOME daily devotional for me, especially when I am trying to spend a few more morning minutes with the big guy before the day gets going. It’s a great, great book and I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a little Godly inspiration to keep them going, ease their worries, and brighten their day. (P.S. I got a great deal on my copy at Costco for $9.99)
Two. My First Real Lent Test
I wanted to give in the other day, I really did. But I stayed strong and walked away. I was in Old Navy buying a birthday gift for someone and saw adorable workout tops. They caught my eye, and boom, next thing I know I’m over there picking out my size. It took me 2.7 seconds to realize, DUH, I can’t buy this…totally defeats my Lent challenge. But I can proudly declare I walked away empty handed and felt REALLY good about it…I’m keeping my word and holding strong!!
Three. The Best Place for Flowers
I’m guilty, I love having fresh flowers in my house…I may not get them nearly enough from a certain someone, so I take it upon myself to stock up on the fragrant goodies whenever I get a chance. And let’s face it, I love a great deal so recently I’ve been hitting up Trader Joe’s to stock up on springtime florals to scatter all over the house…between hydrangeas, gerber daisies, tulips, and sunflowers, I’ve spent about $4-5 per arrangement and have been so pleased with how long they’ve lasted. Props to TJ’s yet again!!
Our big girl had a fantastic birthday week celebration (yes, ours tend to last awhile over in these parts) and I wanted to say a big thank you for all the well wishes, comments, messages, calls, and such. This blogging community is so much fun to be a part of and I am always humbled by so many of you who continue to follow along in our little journey called life. It’s so much fun watching our girls grow and learn and celebrate these sweet birthdays. Can’t wait to show you a full recap next week.
