A Beautiful, Crazy Weekend (Weekend Recap 6/5)
Reflecting on our weekend, I hardly know where to begin, it was busy, busy, busy, from beginning to end and I am more than grateful for this slower paced Monday.
Saturday morning, I woke up, and honestly, I felt quite overwhelmed with the thought of everything I needed to accomplish. We had a lot of errands to run and not much time to get them all done. Howecer, after having my devotions, spending time in prayer, and talking with Landon, I felt much better.
Around seven, Landon and I ran a quick three miles together before we officially began the day. After our damp run, we headed out to a homeschool conference and stayed until noon.
Following the conference, we ran errands and picked up a few gifts for a shower and wedding (which happened on Sunday.)
The rest of the afternoon, we spent time at my cousins graduation party and drove to my in laws house for dinner.
Speaking of dinner, our in laws served a large salad and baked ham, which hit the spot. Mom also made a delicious and healthy (!) peanut butter fudge, which made me very happy.
After we left mom and dads, Landon and I decided to run a late night errand to pick up ingredients for pumpkin pies that I needed to make.
Reflecting back, I am reminded that God gives us grace and stength to accomplish the tasks He has given us to do. Even though it was a full weekend and at points I didn’t know if I could get everything done, it was beautiful. Beautiful because of all the joy that filled each day, beautiful because the businesses reminded me to rely on the strength the Lord gives (and not my own), and beautiful because we spent it with those whom we love.
Let’s hang out again soon. Make today great!
