I hope everyone is enjoying their day! We celebrated our Valentines Day this weekend with Shane. On Friday night, Shane was already gone to work when we got there. So Caden and I grabbed Chic-fil-a and hung around the house. On Saturday morning, we woke up to sweet suprises! Shane is so good at suprising us!! Keep it up, babe! ;)
We took a quick run in the freezing cold, and then took our time getting ready to go to dinner. We relaxed on the couch watching The Rise of the Planet of the Apes ending our night. Sunday morning, we went to church then Belk. Shane worked a little while, then came home to his little prizes!!
Golf ball chocolates from Caden and the cheesy Parrot from me, along with sweet cards!
(I know one day, Ill get tired of the parrot thing but right now it is still new and fun!)
And before I knew it.... it was the dreaded Monday morning departure. I hate Mondays now when I have to head back to our hometown. I am trying to stay positive and busy, making the week fly by! About 4 months remaining.
Caden's class celebrated last Friday. Couldn't possibly get those little love bugs wired up in the middle of the week!
The church is coming over tonight to have an activity with the apartment kids, I know they will all have a great time and learn a little more about Jesus' LOVE for them!!
Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance ... love will last forever! (NLT)1 Corinthians 13:4–8a
In Bible study, a couple of months ago, we talked about how we should replace the word LOVE in the verse with our name and ask ourselves if we could honestly say those things. I would probably have to work on a few of these... try it yourself and challenge yourself! Here is my example...
Brittany is patient and kind. Brittany is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. Brittany does not demand its own way. Brittany is not irritable, and Brittany keeps no record of being wronged. Brittany does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Brittany never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance ... love will last forever!
I hope you all have a wonderful Valentines Day with your lovies!! <3
