The Lion and the Lamb

I can't believe we only have three weeks until school starts.  We are trying to pack in as much fun as we can in the next three weeks.  And as many late nights and late, lazy mornings as possible too.  

Thursday we met Laurie and kids for lunch.  We love the Station Cafe.  It was SOOO hot outside but their patio was shady and breezy and the inside was packed so we sat outside and had a great time.  

I took Sarah Kate home with us and we spent the afternoon swimming and then she spent the night.  She ended up staying with us most of Friday too.  

Friday I got the horrible news that Kelly Stuckey's husband had died in an accident that morning.  It was his 41st birthday.  Kelly is someone I would love to call a friend but we have only met a couple of times.  I just admire her so much from afar.  She's beautiful and kind and love Jesus so much.  She is always bold to share her faith and even now in the midst of HORRIFIC pain - she is sharing her love of Jesus like never before.  She has this darling boy Everett who has dwarfism.  She is such an amazing mom to him and he has stolen my heart.  

I'm so honored to know Kelly even a little bit.  Would you commit to pray for Kelly and Everett? 

You can go HERE for ways you can help.  

Saturday we went out to lunch and to the movies.  Will Holden thought HE was the movie star.  

Hollis always wants me to sit by her at the movies.  And I love it! 

We saw Lion King and I LOVED it.  It was wonderful.  And it was such a depiction of the Gospel even though I'm pretty sure Disney didn't intend that. I wrote more of my thoughts on instagram on this.  

We spent the rest of Saturday at home inside trying not to have a heat stroke.  It's been SO hot the last few days.  


Yesterday we headed to church.  I loved my kids in these pastels and their tans.  

My sweet girls.  

Last night, Laurie and Steve insisted on keeping our kids and letting us have a date night.  It was SO nice of them and we took them up on it.  Of course romantic dates in your mid 40's include going to look for a new refrigerator.  Ours is 15 years old and breaking down so it is time.  

We did manage to eat at my favorite restaurant, Local Lime, and it was nice to be alone for a couple of hours.  I don't want to take for granted the time we have together.  If I have learned anything lately - it's that we aren't promised tomorrow.  I'm trying to be grateful every day.  And when things like refrigerators break and you have to buy a new one - it's NOT a real problem.  All that really matters at the end of every day is people.  And knowing Jesus.  I don't really care about much beyond that.  I love YOU people and I hope you know Jesus.  I want that so badly for each of you!
