Friday Favorites

Happy Friday, sweet friends!

I am linking up with Erika, Andrea and Narci to share our FAVORITES from the week.

Today is a great day!  I wish I could share all the details with you, but it would take days!  Today is a reminder that second chances do exist, that patience during a waiting season brings great blessings and that God always, always provides.  Today is a day we’ve dreamt of for 10 years y’all.  10 Years.  One day I hope to share what today means, but for now just trust me when I say that God always comes through.  There will be moments of doubt and tough lessons, moments when you wonder if God will ever come through and when He does….WOW.  I can’t even put it into words.  I am so thankful for God’s grace, His faithfulness and His provision.  I am thankful for second chances.

I just wanted to take a moment to share that encouragement with you.  If you are in a waiting season, hold on and hang tight.  Be still and know He is God because when the blessing comes it will blow your mind!

Alright I’ve gone off on a tangent, but I’m so excited.  So back to Friday Favorites.  Sit down, prop your feet and grab your coffee.  Here are some of my FAVORITES from the week.

ONE

Last weekend Joseph’s Aunt hosted her annual Halloween Party. This year she challenged everyone to wear a Halloween hat.  What exactly is a Halloween hat?  Not sure, but my sister-in-law and I just went with it.  We met at Dollar Tree Saturday morning and came up with about 11 hats for our family.  We had a great time!  Aunt Rose throws the best parties.  Although the food hangover I had for days after wasn’t so great ha!  The time spent with family was great!

As many of you know, I am hosting a Virtual Bible Study through my blog and Facebook page.  I can’t figure out how to put my videos on my blog so make sure to like my page to see the weekly videos.  This week was such a good week!  You can read more about it here.

My mom and sister joined us for church on Sunday.  It was a sweet surprise.  Also, the kiddos got to have a little pre-Halloween fun and dress up in their costumes.

On Monday, Joseph and I hosted the Young Life Leaders in our home.  This was such a sweet time.  I loved meeting each of them and spending some time with them as they ate dinner.  But what I loved more was watching them come together at the end to go over the night and pray.  Something about hearing young kids pray just blessed my heart.  It was a sweet sweet time.  Thank you Lori and Staci for helping me provide dinner for this great group of kids!

FIVE

Halloween started early for Joseph and I!  We dressed up for our CrossFit class.  So much fun!

We had a great Halloween.  But I have to admit, I can’t wait for Halloween to come on the weekend.  I always feel bad cutting the night short for the kids.  These boys go all out.  I’m afraid we don’t have too many years left of this…  This is the third year that the boys have celebrated Halloween together.  It’s become their thing.  They look forward to it every year.The girls had a great time too.  Look at those costumes and make up!  Props to my sister for doing Mary’s make up.  She got all the creative genes in our family so I am thankful she can always pull off the things I can’t!The boys trick or treated on foot and the girls rode in the trailer.

SEVEN

On our way home from small groups on Wednesday, I went by Kroger to pick up some cough medicine and saw this!  OMG!  I can not be happier!

That wraps up my Friday Favorites for this week.  I hope you and your family have a great weekend!
