This morning came very quickly and dawned VERY hot and VERY sticky. Church at Park Free was really neat. There was a spontaneous moment during our corporate Praise and Prayer/Sharing time that tied directly into a song God had laid on my heart to do after the sharing time this week and it made me very aware of how real and active the Holy Spirit is and I'm grateful for that reminder that happened during the service today. After church, I met up with the rest of our family and went to Applebee's for Mom's birthday and then we had DQ ice cream cake back at Mom and Dad's for her birthday. It was fun to be together to celebrate my Mom turning double nickels! :)
I have friends who are walking through some hard times in their life and the life of their family and it makes me realize how our family is really in a season of celebration. I'm trying to enjoy it while being very busy and very present at the same time because I know this is a special, once-in-a-life-time season in the life of our family.
