Our church began the 40 days of purpose the other day. Monday was day 1 of the actual 40 days and last night was the first home group meeting. It was awesome! We have five couples. Some people met for the first time last night, others met each other recently, and still others have known each other for years, but everyone shared from their heart. We got into deep and honest discussions on the first night. I am really excited to see what God brings over the next several weeks.
My oldest babysat all the kids except the two babies of the group. They all had a great time and got along wonderfully. I know they will be waiting impatiently all week for the next meeting.
Yesterday, we had one of our wind storms. We get some awesome ones...sometimes you can see this giant curtain of dust passing by. It is really cool...normally. Unfortunately, the wind lifted my little tent shelter I use for my little ones. We have no other shade in our yard. I am praying for a miracle in recovering our little lost tent shade. Isn't it awesome that God cares about such little things, too? Our children can bring both their little and big problems to us to fix...likewise, we, God's children, can bring our little and big things to Him to fix.
My hubby is off on a mini work related trip today. He left from work about 20 minutes ago and is heading down south to some little town with his boss. They will be gone until tomorrow night. He was sweet and messaged me before he left. What an awesome man. I plan on staying busy while he is gone. I have some decluttering, organzing, and planning to do. Speaking of which, I am off to get started.
