Mish Mash Update

Well, the winter season of soccer has come to an end. Julie played phenomenally (as usual) yesterday and was very pleased with her trophy. My mom came as well so that made it special for Julie.

Today Sam had his final game as well and he was on fire! He even scored his first goal ever! I was so excited I am sure I could have been heard all over the city. He is pleased with his trophy and my mom came to his game as well. He was flying high.

Yesterday Julie and I had some "girl time". We went over to Second Cup and enjoyed each other's company - no boys allowed. I'm committed to keeping this up for her so that she knows that she is always special to me, no matter how many other children follow after her. (Relax Ian - only Jordan!) She had a huge chocolate chip cookie and some orange juice and I had a brownie with a Strawberry Smoothie. While we ate and talked we planned her birthday party for next month. She is such a wonderful little girl and I enjoy her so much.

Sam went to his friend's house to work on a project together. They are performing a breakdance in gym class tomorrow so they wanted to be prepared. He's been getting together with friends more and more lately and really loves it.

Ian and I looked at a house yesterday that I really liked. We aren't going to buy it, we just want to see what is on the market these days in our price range. It was a lovely little bungalow with a finished basement and fenced yard on a quiet mature street.

Today I am totally wiped out. Everything is aching and Ian ran me the most wonderful bath to relax in. I am feeling a bit more human now but still looking forward to bedtime.

Tomorrow my dear friend returns from the Guatemala mission trip. I can't wait to hear about her experiences down there. She has so many gifts and I can't wait to hear how she's used them and what God has done in her heart there.

Today at church we were blessed by hearing His Season perform for us. The music and testimonies really touched my heart and I ended up crying. Everyone has pain and sadness and brokenness inside them in one form or another and I am no different. I woke up this morning feeling so blue and down on everything and I really only went to church because it's been a few weeks since I've gone. I had no idea that I would be blessed like this. They sang about how they are living the Lord's promises right now and I realized that as heavy as my heart is right now, or as much as I have on my mind, one thing never changes - God is with me and loves me and will care for me. I just have to give everything to Him and leave it there, not try to take it back. Sometimes it's easier said than done...

  1. AMEN! It's amazing how God gets His message through when He needs to. I find, so many times, I go to church on days when He needs me to be there. His word really hits home and I know then that His point was made...it's truly amazing.

  2. His Season is an awesome group! My friend at church is the Aunt of the female singer.

    I'm so glad you had an opportunity to see them! They are truly a gift from God!
