Blessed with a visit from the Burtons

This past Wednesday, My wonderful sister-in-law came in town with her hubby and three beautiful girls. They stayed with us for two nights, and it was so much fun!
Wednesday night we had dinner here at the house and then let the girls dance around the house to Newworldson for awhile. They were all so cute.. Trinity, 7, Micah 2 1/2, Selah, 3 months behind Micah, and little Emery, 7 months. They all loved the music and were dancing like crazy, even Emery.

Once all the girls were "asleep", the adults "relaxed" and watched a movie (non-animated).

The next day was Thursday, so once Selah and I got home from MDO, PJ and I took all the girls except Emery to the pool in our neighborhood. They swam longer than I thought they would considering it wasn't all that warm outside, but they had a great time.
I had to leave before they were done, so Pj and Matt took their kids and Selah to dinner at Grandy's and then to the Harbor. They got ice cream at Cold Stone, then walked down and got to enjoy some music by the lake. I think Selah really enjoyed having so much time with Trinity and Micah.
And Bubba and I loved having them all here for a few days, we love you guys and miss you when we are apart. We pray God's Blessings over your family and your ministry!

Abba...

So our small group, Deeper, started the Nooma series. I have posted a link to the video we watched Tuesday.
It was amazing. I was in tears and then I realized after a few minutes that the ony two people in the room crying were me and another mom. The vieo talks about God being our father and holding us throguh our storms. If we just trust Him and listen to His voice instead of the wind and rain, then He will carry us out of it. He know the way out.
Sometimes we are so busy worrying about the bad stuff going on in our lives that we can't hear God saying "I love you", " It's okay, I know that way."
so if you are going through a storm and all you can hear is the blowing a crashing storm, STOP. Listen for God's voice, He will tell you the way He wants you to go!
