Our Weekend

Remember in my last post how I said I was not looking forward to going out of town AGAIN to Dan's early morning race and I was trying to figure out how to get out of it? Weeeeellllllllllll, Dan came off shift Friday morning and it appears I gave Dan my cold. Ooppsss! ;) I felt bad but oh how nice it was to stay home ALL weekend. I can't remember the last time we did that. We slept in, I washed and cleaned out my car, I made a yummy pumpkin dessert and we watched football. I even got a little sewing in.
We even had some wind on Saturday so Morgan was playing with our huge Nemo kite. So relaxing.
While Morgan played with Nemo Ryanne played with her toys in the garage and got as dirty as possible. :)
Something else cool that happened last week is that I got these two free tickets in the mail to the Aquarium. What happened is someone who works there stumbled on my blog after I had talked about our family fun home school day at the aquarium. She passed it around the office there and they contacted me to say,"thanks!" So we went to the mail to find two free passes to visit again. I LOVE when you get little treats that you weren't expecting. So fun!
On Sunday night we even got to go on a date night. Our church bought out an entire theater of so we could all go view the movie Fireproof. It was so funny to walk into a movie and see everyone from church sitting there. We had such a nice time. Our friends Greg and Stephanie picked us up and afterwards we walked down a few blocks and sat outside while enjoying dinner. The movie was really good and had a great message. I think in our minds we all know that our marriages are something that are not full proof on their own and that we need the Lord daily to make them not only work but work for his glory. The thing is with all the crazy business of our lives and all the temptations satan throws out there to try and tempt you to be "self serving" our marriages can go unmaintained for a long time & that only gives satan a foothold. If you are not serving the Lord first and allowing his qualities to flow down into your spouse then you have to be serving someone. If your not serving him then who? it has to be self and in marriage that will never work! The movie touches on allot of these things!
Last but not least here is my sweet Ryanne on her way out the door this morning. All smiles and full of promises to obey! ahhhhhhhhh, thank you God for a new day and your mercy's. How many times have I promised to do the right thing or to obey and fallen short of what you ask of me? Thank you God that you are mercy's are new every morning.
