Weekly Wonder: July 4th

I didn't have a post last week as we were spending time with family for July 4th, so this is a combination of last week and this week.

1. Two weekends ago we attended my friend's wedding, and it did my soul good to watch the bride and groom unite in a godly marriage, serving as a reminder of what marriage encompasses. On a side note, I hoped and prayed that our daughter wouldn't get fussy during the ceremony. She had plenty of toys to keep her occupied and she waited until after the ceremony to cry. Parenting win!

2. Thanks to the Hommes wedding, we learned that Emily is fascinated by bubbles.

3. Our new neighbors invited us to have dinner with them. They are a nice couple who go to church nearby and have three little girls. Before we left, their oldest drew a picture and gave it to us. So sweet.

4. My heart was heavy last weekend for reasons I will not go into detail on; however, our pastor preached a difficult message that helped confirm my stance on things. I'm serving the God who lives, who is unchanging, who doesn't compromise on anything. My hope was renewed, and I'll continue holding onto that until God answers my prayer.

5. I had a wisdom tooth consultation for the first time ever and the assistant was certain I'd have to get them pulled, but the doctor said otherwise. I'm beyond thankful that I won't have to endure a painful week due to removed teeth. I've never had braces and my wisdom teeth can stay. What more can a human ask for?

6. We had an enjoyable Fourth of July weekend with Wesley's side of the family. It was nice to visit and relax. We also went to see Wesley's grandpa in the nursing home. It was great to meet him.

7. A cat was ran over on the main road in front of our house. That same cat got into our trash and while cleaning up the mess in the rain before heading to the grocery store, I fell on the driveway and soaked my jeans. How is that wonder-filled? Well, this week a girl I went to college with found out that she wouldn't be able to have her sweet baby, and that is some of the worst news one could receive, but she's handling it much better than I ever could. So, do you think my situation is awful? No. No, it's not. Pray for the real situations-like this sweet couple dealing with the loss of a child, and don't complain when small events pile on top of each other and try to create a difficult day, because it's really not difficult in comparison.

8. Our bathroom sink fixture is no longer an ugly gold faucet, and I was able to help with that process. By that I mean I was under the sink taking the old faucet apart. I'm clearly not a girly girl, but I like to be girly if that makes any sense.

9. Verse of the week: "Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast..." Hebrews 6:19

10. Video of the week in honor of the Fourth of July, the poor kitten, and to cheer up a friend.
