And today definitely is a happy day because guess what? Today my man and I get to have almost the whole day together!! First time in at least two years, and I'm SO excited. It was completely last minute and I'm incredibly grateful for our sweet friends who love our children and look forward to babysitting!
I also wanted to thank all of you for your feedback after yesterday's post. I'm humbled that it was a blessing, challenge and encouragement to so many. I am still learning so much about helping others who are going through a difficult time and many of you shared some great ideas. If you read yesterday's post, take a minute to read the comments as well.
Well, on Friday's I usually do a little weekly family recap sharing pics from my phone and Instagram feed. If you're on there, you can find me @itsjustlaine.
The slipcovers were due for another good washing and I was reminded again why I went through pain and suffering of sewing it! I'm thinking I could win an ugly couch award though...peach and seafoam stripes....lovely. This was one project that was most definitely worth it!
But then the comments were cracking me up and my pastor's wife friend in the next town over said she'd paint her nails turquoise and wear it to church if I would. So I did. And I wore my turquoise maxi dress to match. First time in my life my dress and nails matched! =D
I know it's silly, but I'm thankful for ministry friends who would encourage me and remind me that it's not the end of the world to wear turquoise nail polish to church. (Thanks M. Hooks...you're awesome!) =)
And yes, He does make everything beautiful in His time, in His way. But that's the key. We have to wait on Him. His plan is so much better than anything you could imagine. It might not always seem that way, but remember that He sees the big picture and He knows just what to "paint" next on the canvas of our lives. Have patience, friends...He knows what He's doing!
some of the activities that we do to keep from going bonkers. This week I introduced Lucy to the bean box...she LOVED it. Definitely made a mess, but she had a blast. If you have littles, I encourage you to make one. Just get a box and put dried beans in it. Easy peasy. It's good for developing motor skills and just plain fun. =)
Is it just me, or does a sandwich just seem more special when it's cut into triangles? Pretty sure it's a scientific fact that it tastes better too. ;)
Looking forward to time with my hubby and I'm sure I'll be sharing snippits of our day on instagrammy. So what are you up to today? Work? Laundry? Hope you have a wonderful day!
