Anyways, I learned more in 45 minutes with Starbucks in hand than I have in a year of reading "Canon Rebel Tips from the Pros" on Pinterest. Plus, if you know Jon at all, you know I had a ball just listening to his funny comments on any topic that we happened to be chatting about. I wish we could take engagement/ wedding pictures everyday. He was definitely one of the biggest blessings on our wedding day! Jon, I hope my photos don't embarrass you, but I have been practicing! Go check out Jon's page here. Let him make your day awesome! I can promise that he will! You can go look at our wedding day with the link on the right sidebar of my page!
Yesterday was such a special day. A group of girls gathered at my house to begin Beth Moore's Esther study. Oh. My. Goodness. I am sitting here teary eyed just thinking about our first meeting. A bunch of military gals who have never met before, and it was an immediate connection. All around. I can't get over this military lifestyle. I get to be friends from ladies from all over. Germany, Texas, Canada, Tennessee...the list goes on and on. It is so special. I just can't describe the feelings I have about it. We chatted, watched the into video, laughed, stuffed ourselves with chicken salad and coffee, and just got to have girl time. I mean we didn't call it quits until 2pm- we started at 9:30! Love that detail! It makes life a little easier when you have friends who love Jesus. Seriously, great group of girls. Two of the ladies brought their sweet babies. I can't wait to get to catch baby fever over the next 9 weeks ;).
Thankful sums up my heart today. I can't wait to see where God takes us during this study. I was a ball of emotions yesterday. I wish I could find the picture of a few years ago when I did Esther with another group of girls. I was saved during this study so it and those girls have a very special place in my heart. They gave me the sweetest gift at the very last session. My bible I still use today. I'll have a hard time moving on to a new bible, but I think I still have a few good years left in this one.
Kayla, Nicole (click here for her sweet blog), and Caitlin- Ya'll were on my heart so much yesterday! I love looking at your names in the given by slot at the front of that book. Ya'll are still such sweet friends. Thank you for your hearts and your friendship! I would go back in a second and do this study with you all again. Maybe one day! :)
Hope your weekend goes by slow! Have a great one!
