How Marvelous

Seriously, what a great weekend I had this weekend.

Friday night was our usual service on a Friday night.  I taught in Children's Church so i wasn't in on the message but I had a life changing time during the praise and worship.  I felt such a release from a burden I didn't even realize I was carrying, and it was such a tangible release that I thought the lady beside me heard the "pop".  Kinda cool huh, how God does things like that?

Saturday during the day I did some cleaning while BigB was at Manville, the work project we have been working on as a church.  That afternoon we went to my dad's and {step} mom's for supper; had ourselves some delicious hamburger soup and homemade buns and a horribly delicious dessert, that forced us all to eat way to much of it. {grin} We visited and joked while Jellybean and Bug played with the dog.  It was a wonderful evening.  When we got home, we got the kids to bed and BigB and I grabbed a movie and the laptop and snuggled under all our blankets.

The weather outside has been frightful; we have had temperatures of -51C (with windchill) which, when plugged into a conversion chart, I hear is -59.8 F.

Yesterday we were in yet another fantastic CRC service, went for lunch with some very good friends of ours, raced home to get ready for the guys from church to play hockey, went for coffee and appetizers afterwards with new friends of ours, came home to settle in and had our very dearest friends pop by for a quick visit with a tub of ice cream...

(Jellybean made this very friendly looking sandwich herself)

It was a fun, food filled, friend filled, God filled weekend.  I feel so completely blessed with the life we have (even though there are trials, I know that it will all work out.  God will not leave me to endure it myself).

It also sounds like Rush is coming to our house this Saturday for the evening and the day Sunday.  I am doing my best to simply look forward to the time and to not anticipate trouble.  I know that there will be good times.


  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog and taking time to introduce yourself in my community! I try to update daily, so check back often!! Have a fantastic day!

  2. I'm so glad to hear you had such a great weekend. That sandwich does look very friendly :-)

    HOW COLD!!! Brrrrr.

  3. Matthew 6:34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

    And lady, that's DANG cold! We have been having single digits Farenheit, and I thought that was bad. brrrrrrr
