Married Life Dinner and LA Fun

This weekend was so full and so fun. I mentioned in previous posts that we were preparing for a marriage dinner and really seeking Gods wisdom on who should speak; well God worked out all those fine little details and the dinner went great! Pastor John drove up from the beach and was fantastic and right on the mark in his sharing about Gods will for marriage. This is one of the tables I was responsible for. It was hard to get good photos because of lighting and the angle but it's a candy land theme. Even though it's now Sunday I continue to be blessed by what God did. He grew friendships through our serving together. He taught me to roll with things and let him tend to the fine details. He showed me our church's desire to have an active ongoing marriage ministry. He reminded me how much fun and how much I LOVE to serve alongside my husband. So good. So blessed. Also, so TIRED! :)

Saturday morning we surprised the girls with tickets to the Disney Concert Hall in LA. We went to hear the the amazing Los Angeles Master Chorale and you should have seen and heard the organ with over 6,000 pipes. Clear and beautiful and amazing! We went to lunch downtown first and then headed over to the concert.

Everyone loved it!

The concert hall was BEAUTIFUL!

Then today after church we decided to stay home and catch our breath.

We made hand painted ornaments for friends and I helped Graph make chocolate covered peppermint cookies to give to her friends at school tomorrow.
Here are just a few of their creations. After we were done Graph and I headed out in the beautiful 75 degree sun and took a 3 mile walk. Great day! Amazing weekend.

Praise God! Answered prayer for sure.
And I must say I'm a little jealous of your trip to the Disney Concert Hall. When I was a kid, the kids' group I sang with often sang with the Los Angeles Master Chorale at Christmastime. What were they performing? I haven't sung with a choir like that since the Christmas before we moved here to Hanford when I joined my old choir director's group to perform Handel's Messiah at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion. I miss those opportunities.
