Weekendness.

Because you are my help, I sing in the shadow of your wings. I cling to you; your right hand upholds me. –Psalm 63:7-8

We’ve had a great weekend!

Saturday was full and loaded! There were 20 women at one point gathered in my home for a baby shower. It was lovely. Cale of course had disappeared prior to the happenings of pinkness. ;)






I love the holidays and all the giving that happens during this time of the year. I know a lot of people say they don’t like this time of the year anymore because of how “stuff” oriented it has become, but on the other side, there is still a lot of focus on giving. Just this last week I went shopping to fill our shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child and went shopping with Mama for all the food to fill Thanksgiving baskets that are church hands out. Next week the giving tree will be out full of ornaments that list items to get for 20 families here in the Tri-Cities and that’s only a tiny bit of all the opportunities for giving that’s going on!

If I could have recorded the trip we made to the store last night you would be laughing…hard. It was hilarious counting out 20 of all of these food items, watching everyone’s reaction as they passed us, and then of course there was me pushing this extremely full cart while following Mama who was whipping through the aisles and weaving in and out of innocent shoppers. We were quite the scene!


I’ve been so busy with other things lately that I told Cale today would be a day for him. Other than quickly typing up this post, we’ve hung out and had a good ol’ time since being home from church.

I want to ask everyone to be praying about something. I’m not going to give any details about anything yet, but I do want to ask for prayer. I will share as soon as I’m able. I should receive a phone call tomorrow…I’m trying to be patient and not be anxious. It’s not easy! Cale and I keep praying that we would remember either way that God is in control and He has a perfect plan. Tomorrow is going to be another full day of fun stuff, so my mind should be preoccupied until the call comes. Hopefully it comes!


Yesterday we had a conversation that went like this...

K: You're handsome.
C: You're cute.
K: You think I'm cute?
C: No, you're beyond cute. You're beautiful.

It was super sweeeet! That of course gave me a huge smile. :)

Earlier Mama and I asked Cale what his plans were for Thanksgiving and he said, "Eat and sleep."

  1. What charming decorations for the shower. I too, love this time of year, the emphasis on giving is good. Yes, there is comercialism (sp?) BUT the world is all around us. We are responcible for what is in our hearts when we give...NO MATTER WHAT TIME OF THE YEAR. I love you and am so glad you and Cale had such a good day. I look forward to hearing the answer to our prayers...Father knows, that IS enough, BUT I want to know too! :) Hugs and trusting you to Father, Marion
