Grateful Always

Happy first day of Special Sessions in the Florida Legislature! Well, at least happy first day to me and my fellow coworkers. We will survive this, people. Did ya'll have a fabulous weekend? We cleaned, watched Netflix, grilled out, cleaned, Netflix... the usual ha!
Monday's can be tough to get back into the swing of things. Lucky for me, I picked up a dozen assorted donuts this morning from Krispy Kreme and my coworker baked homemade, from scratch brownies. This Monday's already turning out to be a sweet one :)
Even in the midst of Monday's, it's still so important to look upon the beauty of it. God did make a new day for us after all, so we should be thankful. Today (and every day) I'm beyond grateful for our pastor and his wife. Their leadership, perseverance, and friendship have been huge blessings in mine and Hunter's lives.
When we joined our small country church, Hunter and I had no idea what to expect. We didn't expect such an outpouring of love from complete strangers. We didn't realize how much our teenagers actually love being at church and want to be around us "ole folks." And we never expected God to bring such healing to our hearts. Hunter and I continue to marvel over God's plans and His impeccable sense of timing.
So to Lem, Gretchen, and Antioch family - thank you for your love and support in our ministry. Thank you Lem and Gretchen for pouring your leadership into us and fostering discipleship in us and for us to further God's kingdom. And to Lem - thank you for encouraging Hunter to pursue his passion of ministry. For the first time ever, Hunter finally knows what God has called him to do. And it's beautiful to watch him walk this journey.
