My sisters were moving this weekend and that took lots of time. Well lots of time for them…I was there. Haha
Friday morning meant photos for new prayer cards! Jennifer Jones is a photo genius/miracle worker and coached me into some not-so-awkward poses.Shawn & Candi took cute family photos too!
Then, I hung out with Bets while she brought some things over to her apt. I came home and Carly was babysitting. We discussed life, and politics, and…watched Mulan. Yes- I spend my Friday nights watching Disney movies.
Saturday morning I went to Hot Power Yoga at Yahweh Yoga., a Christian Yoga studio in Chandler. I’m going to write a whole thing about hot yoga & Christian yoga- but let me tell you, it was awesome! The verse for the class was Deuteronomy 4:31: “For the LORD your God is a merciful God. He will not leave you or destroy you or forget the covenant with your fathers that he swore to them.” It is so sweaty, but so good. My skin feels AMAZING after I take this class & it’s a huge challenge.
I came home, did some work, and then on to moving day! Again, I was there, but I spent a good amount of the afternoon laying on the carpet discussing church with Katjriana. A huge dust storm blew through mid-move but I managed to bring the Christmas tree over. So many people came out to help- a true testament to community! Real friends help people move!
The boys had all of there big stuff moved in no time! People hung out for a while and we discussed things like: how to hack a Coke machine and if you could feel pressure from the other 2 floors when you were on the first floor. Then we started discussing a hypothetical situation: if you lived in a country where you had to get a tattoo of your choosing OR go to jail indefinitely and get your toenails ripped out, what tattoo would you get? One person almost went and got a tattoo. Hahaha (Don’t worry mom! No one got one!)
Sunday I had the pleasure of going to Desert Springs Church, Apache Junction campus. Loren and Sandra, the pastors there, are the sweetest people on the planet. The way they love and serve people is remarkable. Loren spoke on Matthew 5:11- “”Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me.” He brought a great word about standing up for your faith no matter the setting or the consequences. I even ran into Paige’s parents there- it was so nice to see some familiar faces!
I was so glad we got to catch up and see what was going on at their church! If you are looking/know someone looking for a church in AJ/East Mesa- send them there! Sandra & Loren will take care of them!
That night, Mag made a DELICIOUS dinner of Baked Mac & Cheese. Jen & Abby came over and we were pretty much dying of laughter the whole time. We had this cute cake!
Then I had to scoot home to catch the SEASON FINALE OF THE BACHELORETTE. Mostly, I thought her outfit choices were….unfortunate (that was just for you Andrea!). Exhibit A:
I also thought it was WAY ANTICLIMACTIC because she picked Jef BEFORE the final rose ceremony! If you’ve ever watched the Bachelor/Bachelorette, YOU KNOW IT’S ALL ABOUT THE ROSE CEREMONY! However, it was all made better when Candi made some delish treats and we talked about the gift of tongues during the commercials. Haha
That was my weekend in a nutshell- how was yours?!
