Sunday Blessings

I've decided to change my "Week in Review" to "Sunday Blessings" - since it is kinda the title of my blog, after all! Instead of recapping the week (which is probably a snooze-fest for the rest of you, haha), I'm going to list a few things that blessed my heart over the course of the week. It might be tiny, huge, spiritual or not, but I think that part of the beauty of life is learning to find the joy and blessings in every part of it.

I completely understand that not all of you reading this believe in God like I do, but there is a verse in the Bible that I think anyone, Christian or not, would love to live life by. Jesus said He came so that we could have "have life, and have it abundantly" {John 10:10}. Another translation of the Bible reads, "and have it to the full." Isn't that a fabulous thought? That God wants us to experience life so deeply that it is about to overflow? I love it, and I love that verse.

If and when my blog grows a little bit more, I think it might be neat to have a Linky party so that we could all share the blessings of our week and be encouraged by others through it. Definitely a possibility in the future!

So here are some things that blessed my heart this week:

1. My son's personality is really starting to blossom and it just thrills my heart. He does this really cute thing where he'll just reach out and pat your face and smile at you. I love, love, love do-it-a-million-times-more love it.

2. I had sweet potato fries at a friend's house and they rocked my world. I haven't had them in years! Lindsay, I'm not kidding - I bought two sweet potatoes today! Oh, and spending time with good friends is always great, too. :)

3. Getting back into the CVS-game and starting Walgreens. Our budget is so tight it squeaks and saving money in this way is not only fun but incredibly fulfilling.

4. Spending time with my extended family - my father-in-law is the pastor of our church, and every Sunday we have a big Sunday lunch together. There are 18 of us now in the family, and it's nice to hang out with them and laugh. I am soooo thankful that I get along with my sisters-in-law and mother-in-law because I know many women struggle with those relationships and I don't take that for granted.

Looking forward to the last week of February, because it means Spring is just around the corner!

Hope you all had a blessed week, too!


  1. I love that verse too!

    And I LOVE sweet potato fries. We get the Alexia ones from the freezer section at SAMs. They are so yummy and great dipped in ranch!!

  2. is there a like button for number 2 :)

  3. When one thinks of motorcycle gear, the first word that usually pops out is ‘helmet‘

  4. helped our university program set an account up and connect with their Spanish subtitle services. We just received our first completed project from typingservice, and our bilingual reviewer was very impressed with the quality and did not find a single error. We will continue to use typingservice for other projects and highly recommend them for subtitle work.
