It' s pretty bad when going to work on Monday is a relief! Sometimes the weekend is so busy it is kind of nice to get back into your routine.
I was very busy in the house Saturday. Eric and Amanda did the yard work,which to me was a fair trade. I had much rather be in the house working and they would much rather be outside. Amanda was so funny. She was actually excited to mow the yard. After years of helping her dad do landscaping, she said our small yard was just enough to enjoy without using up your whole day.
Sunday Amanda and I made a trip back home for a special occasion. Our bodies wanted to be home but our hearts led us to make the 2 hour one way trip. We wouldn't have missed seeing Hayden baptised for the world. It was also great to worship again at IBC. I love my new church, but every time I go back home my heart is pricked because I do miss it there so much. But we get back for church here on Sunday night and have that "there's no place like home" feeling. I think I am so blessed to have two churches that I love so much!
This morning I read Psalm 73. It speaks of how it seems so unfair that those who live such worldly lives often seem to live such carefree lives, so to speak. Many times in my life I would dwell on these things. But when I really grasp the fact that my treasures are not of this world it seems to not bother me anymore. Envy is never healthy anyway. It just works on you from the inside out.
It was great to get to see many of you this weekend. Some of you I saw at a distance but never got to speak to you. I love you all!
Blessings to all,
Those who are far from you will perish; you destroy all who are unfaithful to you. But as for me, it is good to be near God. I have made the Sovereign Lord my refuge; I will tell of all your deeds.
Psalm 73: 27-28
