Blessings from "Home"

So sorry that I've been MIA for awhile! I've been in Lafayette and Covington visiting and soaking up every minute that I can with friends and family. I've been so very blessed while I've been here...

I got to spend an afternoon with a dear friend and her three (yes 3!) baby girls. What a testament they are to God's faithfulness. After a long struggle with infertility, the loss of their beautiful twins, and much prayer, Adam and Tami are truly BLESSED!

Last weekend, I also got to spend lots of time with my wonderful family. I was so excited to be a part of the church service in Covington Sunday morning. My uncle, who had been serving as the youth pastor, was voted in as the senior pastor of the church. He and his sweet, sweet wife have blessed me in so many ways, and the church is very lucky to have them!! Uncle Bob did a marvelous job with Kinley's service last September, and I could tell at that point that God had very BIG things in store for he and his family!! He truly hears the voice of God! (By the way, he would never want me to brag on him like this....but it's my blog, so I get to!!) A truly amazing and BLESSED day....oh, and the celebration lunch at the Beef House was pretty good too!!

God is working all around you...are you opening your eyes today to see the blessings? Ask God to show you all the ways He's working in your life and the lives around you. Ask Him to give you insight to the GOOD that He's doing!

"I will sing to the Lord, for He has been good to me." Psalm 13:6

"Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him." Psalm 34:8
