this past weekend was a really special and sentimental one for me.. one of my dearest friends and one of my very first friends at eau claire got married to a really good man! and the whole thing was so Christ-honoring... acknowledging Him throughout and within every aspect! i know He is pleased! just a joyful celebration all weekend long! i was literally tearing up in the car on my way over because i couldn't wait to get to these people so close to my heart... ha, alexi... sometimes... anyways, congrats to the beautiful couple!
for coral speaking truth over me and reminding me of my worth as God's child when i needed it... i'll never be able to tell you just how thankful. honestly! sometimes, i can't believe my friends are my friends.
for adam and how he loves angela.
for angela and her graciousness and kindness and incredibly big heart.
for holding holland's hand for a minute, and her doing that just because she knows it's one of the ways i feel most loved.
for how good adam is to holland and justin is to afton. men i really respect.
for a safe, welcoming, and peaceful place to stay in eau claire.
for friends that feel like home.
for eau claire. i'll never stop being thankful for that place and the people and deep heart changes it has brought!
for a little walk with holland after church.
for my mom. she's a really good one.
for my aunt wendy and how she stayed extra long at our house so she could see & spend time with me when i got home.
for amy's intentionality with each person and how she goes out of her way to see people and make them feel valued.
for a new closeness with amy.
for how hard paige, sidney, and i laugh together because of how much we get each other.
for lucas kissing my shoulder while i'm holding him, walking into the grocery store.
for rachel and how good she is at loving people and making me feel welcomed! for her humility in learning and the ways she spurs me on to learn too!
for the long family. so Christ-honoring in the way they care for people.
each of these are glimpses into the very image of Christ and what i think He's like. i never want to stop observing and thanking Him for these gifts. i know i'm not very good at remembering that so many days but i sure hope i don't ever let these things slip and forget the ways God shows me Himself in the daily.
^^for the ways amy and coral make a house a home.
