Rest is For the Birds

Rest?  What is that?  That is certainly NOT in my vocabulary lately.  I feel like I have been on a fair ride... And to be honest.... I have enjoyed it :)  Starting last week, there has been something going on every single night.  I went from bible study, to a girl's night out, to church, to Sam's to get supplies for the fish fry, and then Friday night we set everything up at the church for our (In) Courage Webcast... And Saturday! Oh man!  It was a very long and exhausting day, but boy did we have a good time.  I enjoyed Saturday morning so much with all the ladies. Some I didn't know, and some I did.  But that was the whole point of this, wasn't it?  To build community among women that you don't know. 

I so wish I would have taken pictures when everyone got there, but I was enjoying it so much that I didn't even think about it.  It's nice to know that I am not the only woman who doesn't have it all together and probably never will.  :) 

Thank goodness that Monday was a holiday for me. Michael and I spent the morning together.  It was nice.  We were doing so much last week that I rarely had any time to talk to him.  We got the kids a small happy and got them from school a little early to enjoy the rest of the day with us.

This week has been a little slower.  Wednesday, Anna Claire's school had their Field Day.  She was on the green team.  I remember field day from a long time ago... a long long time ago.  I took a long lunch and went to visit her for a little while. 

That baby right there was WORN out.  She went to bed at 6:20 Wednesday night and slept until I woke her up at 7 on Thursday... God bless her. 

We are leaving next Saturday for Orange Beach.  Yes!  Anna Claire has been counting the weeks down.  I woke her up this morning and said, "Good Morning! Do you know what today is?"  I was thinking she would say Friday... No, she said "1 week."  She knows!  haha!  I think we are all looking forward to vacation this year. 

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!  In our Proverbs 31 bible study, we just talked about being Smart and Strong.  How you should work, BUT you should also rest... like God rested when he was done creating the entire world.  Even the best of us need Rest! And I plan to start making it a point to do that every week. 

I will leave you with this song...

And a couple more pictures:

"So we must not get tired of doing what is good, for we will reap at the proper time if we don't give up."  Galations 6:9
