As you know, we greet every Sunday. This Sunday, we met Cooper! He is one of the volunteer’s small dogs who joins every week in our service. He is a bright boy..so much that he needs shades! HA!
Well it just got brighter as we discussed strongholds that may be inhibiting our walks with Christ. Man, there are so many SNEAKY ways that devil can invade our space.
We were all captivated as we prayed through what was personal for us. REPENT, RECEIVE, REBUKE, and REPLACE. Daily! he will not win. The name of Jesus is all he needs to flee. “Be subject therefore unto God; but resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” (James 4:7)
As we sang, Tatum went through her EVANGECUBE (Bob gave it to her! SMILES)
It shares the Gospel in a fun, cubey way.
Tatum’s walk continues to grow. A little bit at a time….I’m so grateful for our church, our family (who is so imperfect but has so much grace, pointing to our total dependence on Jesus).
On my birthday which fell on a Friday this year, Tatum had a birthday party (Noah’s to be exact which trumped mine!)
So, I asked if we could celebrate on Sunday. Friday, I still had a great day! Pretty flowers, a lovely card, and so many lovely wishes from friends, Mom, and my dear brother. Tatum also gave me a sweet little card! (Smart girl! 30? HA!)
Sunday was so perfect too. We had such a great service, and then later that day, I enjoyed my favorite: A hot fudge sundae, pool time, and then some lovely gifts.
And…my lovebug sees my stomach issues as beauty. OOPS into GOOD!
Of course, Doug never listens, and he always enhances the experience. Just look at these! Mind you, he didn’t buy them like this; he went to the extra effort to vase them himself. His engineer side comes out often! heehee
Tatum was scheduled to sing at both services this morning. Oh, she sure did bless me! They sang my favs too: Holy Lord God Almighty, Glorious Day…
Derek was our leader today…wow.
Afterwards, I just wanted to squeeze her!
She shared with my how powerful the Holy Spirit was in her that morning. Heart melt.
Later, they both spoiled me with cards and gifts…and a toast!
Here is my card!
My sweet honey spoiled me with his card.
And a DELICIOUS candle! (oh, and a PERFECT gift card to my fav store: SBC cafe! THE BEST home gifts ever!
