Let the good times roll when these two girls get together! They remind me so much of friendships I had as a child that I still cherish to this day. The memories made with friends will last a lifetime and I am so thankful for the relationship Alyssa and Maddie have together.
They are sweet and caring. They love The Lord and were even baptized on the same day. They have been together since birth and have always had a special bond. They have never lived in the same town and pretty much only see each other at church, but The Lord formed a bond with these two and he has protected that relationship. They are truly best friends.
They had a whole weekend together and made the most of it!!
Thanks Chrissy for letting us have your girl! She's a doll and always welcome in our home!!:)
Last Saturday we had the very wonderful Kelly Stamps as our guest speaker for Mugs-N-Muffins. She has such a sweet spirit about her. She is example of godliness and a true woman of God. She shared her testimony and spoke on how The Lord has been teaching her so many things lately! I'm so thankful for the way The Lord uses other women to minister and challenge me as a mom, a friend and most importantly in my walk with Him.
We had a great time and I know so many ladies were blessed by Your testimony and teaching! Thank you Kelly!!:). You were truly blessing!!
Matt and I decided to hit up a new trail this past week. It is fairly new to our area and we have been hearing such great things about it so we checked it out for ourselves!!
It was so much fun. We decided to run the train instead of walk. Matt's training for a hunt he and his dad got drawn for in Arizona and I just enjoy running and a new challenge of any sort!! This was challenging but mostly just a blast.
Our creator is simply amazing. We were in awe of the beauty of this trail and the beauty of all creation. I often think I have to go off to a quiet place to experience The Lord but he always makes himself known if I am willing to just listen. Through the rustling of the leaves below our feet. Through the sound of heavy breathing as we ran (and there was lots of that going on). Through the waterfalls and streams Raging water. In the stillness of our heart. He is there.
Life is crazy busy...but my response can't be to run faster. It must be listen. To seek Him. In the midst of chaos He's never forgotten me. Thankful.
Come close to God, and He will come close to you....James 4:8
This is sooo late in the news, but a couple friends and I ran our first half marathon a few weeks ago! It was so much fun and such a sense of accomplishment! The whole time I was running I was just thanking God that he has given me the strength, energy, and health to train for and run such a race. I am so glad that I set my mind to it and did it!! It really is the best feeling knowing you have done something you never dreamed you would be able to do!
Love these two girls! I couldn't think of anyone else to run my first run with!!
Um...I seriously scored some major loot at the race! I mean, that's pretty much why I signed up in the first place!! kidding...kind of:)
This man was my biggest fan. He and Cody were there every couple of miles to cheer us on. It was a huge encouragement. I am so thankful I am married to a man that loves me and supports me. Even when it takes time away from our family! Blessed.
This past weekend we took the girls away for a little family time. We picked up Alyssa from school and headed to Fayetteville for some Razorback baseball. The girls always have a blast at the games and this time was no exception!
We left the game and drove in to Branson. The girls woke up and immediately were ready for breakfast and some swimming!! We left for to silver dollar city about 10am and there was no traffic on the way there. Good sign #1. We were thrilled to not have to wait in any lines. The girls rode till their little bodies couldn't ride (or walk) anymore!!:).
We had a blast. We ate lots of yummy food, laughed a lot and made some precious memories with our little girls!
Thankful for time away to soak in the blessings in our life. We get busy and I feel sometimes its just good to get away and spend time just us 4. It was good.
We feel completely blessed with the life we live. God has been so great to us and we are overwhelmed at his goodness! Our little girls are more than we could have ever imagine. We love the Lord with all our heart and try to show the girls daily what Christ's love looks like!
