It’s only day two and I’m already loving this series. I took 30 minutes to sit down and blog tonight, 30 minutes that I wouldn’t have taken otherwise. And throughout the day, I was really thinking of little things I wanted to share with you on the blog. BK was sleeping when I left for school this morning, so it was a quiet morning around the house. I did snap a picture of two of my absolute favorite makeup products at the moment. I am loving this Naked liquid makeup and pressed powder from Urban Decay. I think that whole Naked line may be a hit, I know I love the eyeshadow just as much.
I had a quick grade group meeting after school, and then I hurried home to this sweet girl. She helped me wrap a few birthday presents before she had to get ready for church and I had to leave for bible study. How cute is that casserole dish carrier? Complete with a monogram, of course.
For the past few weeks our Wednesday’s have looked very different. We used to all go to church together and grab dinner before heading home. Now, I participate in a bible study with some other wonderful ladies and Allen takes Braylen to church with him. We go our separate ways for a few hours.It was my turn to bring snacks so I picked up pizza and cheese sticks. I’d be lying if I didn’t tell you I had to talk myself out of eating one of the cheese sticks on the way. I’m telling you, pregnancy hunger is no joke. I wanted an egg roll and a slice of pizza at one point today. I’m not even remotely kidding.
We are using Beth Moore’s James’ bible study for our weekly meetings. It is rocking my world, y’all. The beginning of this week was all about faith and works and brought about some convictions for me. Tonight, the video session was perfect as it focused on the good life. She also went on to talk about what it means to live the good life, is it just being better than everyone around us? Having more? It sounds crazy to even type that out, but I’m afraid that we follow society and try to play into their version of the good life more often than we should. But, the Bible says Jesus came so we could have life and have it more abundantly. I’m sure that there’s nothing better than an abundant life in Christ. That my friends, is truly the good life.
I’m almost ashamed to admit this, but not enough to leave it out of the blog post. I’m still not a fan of pumping my own gas. Of course, if I absolutely have to, I will. I mean, I would definitely pump my own gas over being stranded on the side of the road. Thankfully, it hasn’t ever come to that. Anyway, I called Allen after Bible study and he was on his way home from church so we met at the gas station.
He’s too good to me, I know.
