I love my new routine of recapping my weekend on Monday mornings. Weekends have quickly become my favorites. It is so much fun spending time with my little family of three, and this weekend was no exception. It was actually quite full.
Of course you know Friday morning started off rough. I was not feeling well, but by the time I wrote my post on Friday I was upbeat about getting better. Unfortunately it didn't continue in that direction. I grew worse as Friday afternoon loomed. Which meant Alex had to cancel our dinner plans with his department at school and also his plans to watch the Hobbit that evening. I felt awful but I definitely needed him there to take care of me and the baby. So Friday night turned out pretty lame, despite our grand plans for the evening.
Friday was also awful for another reason. After I posted that day, I was stalking my friends on Facebook when I suddenly realized everyone was talking about one event. I quickly googled the school shooting in Connecticut and was absolutely devastated. I sat and wept with Eleanor in my arms, begging God for justice and peace. Events like this will never be understood, I am just thankful for my faith and trust in God.
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:37-39)
I encourage each of you to lean toward our Savior, Jesus Christ and
accept His love. There is no time like the present, because you never
know what the future may hold.
The event was amazing and I am so proud of all of our volunteers who made it happen. I am so proud of all the girls who achieved their goals that morning. I am so blessed to be a part of Girls on the Run, and now Eleanor gets to be a part too!
