So, I woke up early last Saturday morning to run the “Jazz in the Woods” 5k race. I even managed to drag Jeff and my dad with me to run. Only, the dream was short lived – we never ran because it was thunder storming something terrible! Ah well…we still took pictures to commemorate what could have been!
From there we attended Miss Lily’s second birthday party at Deanna Rose Children’s Farmstead. I hope all the Johnson County children of the 80’s remember this place. It was basically a little pen with goats that you could feed. Now – it’s a farm alike to Disney Land. There are even little pet pigs!
And we culminated our evening at “Stems” in the Arboretum. Gorgeous.
Love the hand painted glasses!
This week I am so blessed to be in Florida with Jeff and his family relaxing and confirming our vendors for the upcoming big wedding day. Jeff and I attended Calvary Chapel Church in Fort Lauderdale this morning and were so touched. (Visit there website here.) The Pastor, Bob Coy, gave one of the best messages I’ve ever heard on what salvation truly is. When people come forward for prayer and to make a life commitment to Christ the entire church claps. I just felt so much life while we were there this morning.
I truly love attending different churches when I travel. It’s so intriguing to realize that every Sunday morning believers ALL over the world are worshiping Jesus Christ together – in different places and in different styles. What a great God we serve. The older I get the most I realize that I am head over heels in love with my savior and that relationship is the GREATEST relationship in my life. I cannot wait to see what He has in store for me. All I know is, if He were to call on me, I would echo Isaiah’s words, “Here I am; send me!”
They sang a song I had never head this morning, entitled “Give Me Faith,” by the Elevation Worship team. Check it out:
My favorite words are: “I may be weak, but your Spirit’s strong in me.” There is SO much truth in those words. We (ME) are all sinners struggling daily to battle our inner temptations. Alone – there’s no way we can succeed, but, as Bob Coy recounted today, when we are saved, Jesus comes inside of us to HELP us become the people God meant us to be. What an incredible Savior.
