I can’t believe the Holiday’s are here! Happy Thanksgiving week! I’ve been preparing all weekend for Thanksgiving-making my shopping list, Black Friday list, and getting my house in order before the mayhem! This will be my first year making the famous pumpkin pies for our family gathering, I’m nervous and excited! I’ve been thinking about making a “test” one in advance, just to be sure things go well. The Holiday season is such a fantastic time and I’m really looking forward to all the celebrations with my friends and family.
On Saturday I went to my very first car show. I had a blast, and now I just want a new car! After the car show, J and I grabbed lunch by the water and went on a little stroll. We had the privilege of getting to spend some time with our niece that night. She brings so much joy to our families life, and I’m so thankful to be a part of her growing life. On Sunday, we decided to do a deep clean in our house to prepare for all of the upcoming Holiday’s. After our house was clean we started getting crafty and made our pup a new doggie bowl stand! Ending the weekend with errands and football.
While we are still recovering from my Grandpa’s passing, some joy has been restored just by being surrounded with all of the love and support from friends and family. There are additional things in my life that are still not at peace, and I’m really hoping and praying that restoration will happen, and stability will be around the corner. I’m so thankful that I can trust in God, knowing he holds all of this in His hands. If you are going through a time of instability, and restlessness, put your trust in God, He will be the firm foundation and rock that your life needs. Trust that He will take care of His children.
Here are some things I’m loving:
