This is what I woke up to this morning...Lily and Sofie dancing in the hall with yet ANOTHER pet crab, this one one they found in a hole in the backyard :)
Finishing off this crazy week and full school year with Sunday morning worship at Granny's was perfect. The worship there is always so vibrant and sincere, and they asked Matt to preach. As he started to preach on the idea that the world will know we are Christians because we will put others above ourselves, a little mama bird flew through the sanctuary, and took a worm to her babies, their nest inside of the fake blue flowers next to the pulpit.
That beautiful image, as she came in and out throughout the entire service, caring for her chicks, was such an awesome example of putting others above ourselves, such an awesome image of His great care for us. I have felt it this year, and am thankful!
My dad and his wife decided to make a last minute trip down, and arrived yesterday! It was great to have them with us today, and the girls especially are just cherishing our time with them SO much.
Their favorite time is bedtime stories...One day, I'm going to put together an album of Sofie faces :)
I forgot to post these pictures of alumni day on Thursday...a great day of reminiscing and partnership!
Nora, helping us out with a gardening project on Saturday...it takes this girl about TWO second to get EVERYTHING in her mouth!
This "Utmost for His Highest" really resonated with me the other day...let me leave you with it :
