An Unfitting Dress and a Solo

For those of you who don’t know… I headed down to Cincinnati this past weekend. (Really it was Friday night to Saturday early afternoon.) For those of you who know what I initially headed down there for… no it didn’t fit. And for those of you who don’t… I was trying on a wedding dress.

But no fear… my trip was not in vein.

I really enjoyed getting the opportunity to hang out with my mom and dad. I had had a really horrible day on Friday and I was actually looking forward to seeing my parents. (Not to say that I do not usually look forward to seeing my parents, it’s really that usually bad days cause me to seek out alone/away time.)

It was a fun trip filled with viewing mom’s old wedding dress (it was really neat to see a symbol of the start of my parent’s marriage- and also all the hard work my mom’s sister had put into making her ’70s lace wedding dress), wedding dress online exploration, a GOOD night’s sleep (FINALLY!), a quiet morning, enjoying a contata practice, hearing my mom’s solo (she did really well. I am still impressed at how despite her stage fright, she really gave her all to God… ignoring the fear. GO MOM!), holding a baby (always wonderful), and a nice lunch.

I was so blessed by the trip.

Thanks God, for once again, blessing me in ways that I did not imagine.

I love you, Jesus.


Have you ever thought that the all-sufficient Savior has promised those who walk in blind faith more than our minds can ever comprehend? That the only True Savior renews our minds, even when we feel most useless toward His Kingdom work? The Lord of all dares to touch our hearts, even as we stumble to find obedience. Oh how this soul wishes we Christians would embrace His Truth! And that the world would be different because of obedient hearts. Lord, change me. Lord, change us. All for Your glory. ---------- I am a Jesus-follower, a Homemaker, a Wife of the best man EVER, a Mom of 4 wonderful girls, a missionary in Africa, a Friend, an Encourager, a Seeker of integrity who is unsatisfied with a mediocre walk in Christ, and Blessed beyond any words that I could ever express. Thanks for being interested in my little slice of the world.
