hello week. good-bye weekend. i feel like i need another weekend. seriously i’m finding that the days and weeks keep going faster and faster. before long…i’ll be old 😉 i feel like a happy broken record coming here each week and saying that joy is everywhere and that i feel so….loved. joyful. at peace. excited. at home. seriously, y’all (i’m not southern but i just felt like saying that), God is so very faithful. months ago, one of my intern people told me about how when he was praying for me that he saw a book where i needed to focus on the page at hand rather than look ahead to the end. i think i’m finally starting to live like that and trust God like that. saying hello to the new adventure right here, right now and not trying to make another adventure happen on my own. so, without further ado, here are some snapshots of joy…
816. knowing that people have my back
830. more swings, more swings (cute little kiddos on the playground)
871. eating brownies with a spoon from the pan with my people
876. melting into peace
879. moments where my heart stops in a good way
880. memories i want to hold onto
888. closing my eyes to soak up the moment
908. bananagrams and cribbage and laughing and fabulous people
938. watching life!
and before you run off…don’t forget to comment because it makes my heart happy to hear from you all! did you watch life? what was the highlight of your week? anything I can be praying for you about?
p.s. i’m SO close to 1000 gifts. 🙂

I’m glad to be a part of ‘my people’ 🙂 The highlight of my week was Allyson’s return, of course!
I’m glad you are part of them as well! cribbage and hanging out was fabulous 🙂
I loved that you just said “my people”. i love you 🙂 those brownies were AWESOME. um my highlight? getting to see all my favorite people right before I left… it was great to carry those last precious memories away with me!!
love those last minute soak up all the time you have memories… 🙂
Bananagrams? What’s that? Sounds interesting.
I’m pretty close to my 1000 too. Yee Haw!
Highlight of my week. . . . . being encouraged by someone who’s hurting (a friend whose husband has left her.) Even though our pains are very different, we can lean on each other.
Bananagrams are kind of like scrabble except fast paced and individualized (http://www.amazon.com/Bananagrams-BAN001/dp/1932188126). We played for the first time last weekend and they were fun!
Yay for being close to 1000!!!
mmm, praying for you and your friend right now.
Oh, that sounds like a game we used to play called “pick 2.” I don’t remember the exact rules, but we used Scrabble tiles and ignored the numbers on them. Fun!
I also just found out about scrabble apple–probably very similar to the “pick 2” and it’s great as well! I love words and word games 🙂
