Weekend Update

On Friday, my Lila graduated from preschool.


On Saturday, we had dinner with some friends and I don’t have a picture but it was the highlight of the month of May. We laughed and ate amazing food and just had the best time!

On Sunday, we celebrated Kristin’s upcoming wedding!

And then it was Memorial Day!  We went to Mom and Dad’s and had so much fun being outside!  Kids in the creek, kids in the wading pool, crabbing, tubing, playing corn hole, laughing, eating so many good things!  The weather was beautiful and everyone had fun.  It was excellent.

And then last night, I finally sat down to jot some things into my thankfulness journal, because I hadn’t had the time all weekend.  After finally finding a pen, I wrote and wrote and wrote…filled three pages full of good, good things.

Good gifts.

And one of the things I love the most is being able to go back and see them again.  To remember his goodness and his mercy.  It seemed fitting to think of it this way, at the tail end of Memorial Day which is all about remembering those who have given all.

Jesus has given all.  I remember His love and His mercy.  And in my little book are more than five hundred good gifts.

This little book is my monument, my Ebeneezer to the goodness of God.

This is a short post today…I’m so tired from our whirlwind weekend that I just don’t have many words to share.  But I want to ask you:

What are you thankful for from this past weekend?

    I appreciate the short post; I can actually get it read in one setting without kids interrupting! 🙂 I’m thankful for fellowship with friends, and for the luxury of having nearby beaches to hear the waves, soak up the sun, and watch the sunset.

    I’m thankful for a great CFA5K, and for a lovely night with Andy on Saturday…Thankful for the nice doctor at Med Express, and that my boys are fever free today. Happy I got to crash Kristin’s shower on Sunday and that my boys got haircuts. Grateful for all those who have served and lost their lives for our freedom. Happy that Andy got a watermelon for the family. Very appreciative of Ibuprofen and Tylenol.

    Sounds like a great weekend! I am thankful to have Joe home for a season…a time of rest and healing. Living in the now. And of course celebrating our first born turning 13!!
