Here’s What I’ve been up to this week:
Who I’ve been hanging with:
My twin sister came for a visit! She came so that she could sit in on our Apples of Gold session on Saturday. She’s desiring to begin this ministry in her church in the near future. We loved having her with us for our 5th lesson. While she was here we also got in lots of shopping! They don’t have quite the variety of stores as we do, so we took her to Asheville to shop all afternoon and evening! We covered LOTS of ground and found some good treasures!
An interesting thing about the picture above is that when my sister posted that photo to Facebook, it automatically tagged me with her name! Of course, being twins, we do look similar, but when she posted the question to her friends as to who was who, every one of our friends got us right. Why? They truly know us.
You know what? The Lord knows every one of us. He knows us by name. He never gets us confused with someone else. The Bible says, He knows those that are His. However, not every person on the earth is God’s child. We’re all His creation, but until a person receives Jesus Christ as their own Savior, He is not their Father. If you were “tagged” in a picture, would it tag you as God’s child? He makes life worth living, and death the full of hope! You can have a relationship with God. See a video here that will explain how.
Whitney met us for lunch in Asheville when my sister was here. We had a yummy lunch at PF Chang’s. It’s always great to have mom/daughter time, even if it’s just a couple of hours! She brought me South Carolina peaches from a stand we’ve stopped at many times over the years. Sooo good!
My favorite picture of the week:
My sweet friend brought me these beauties. What’s happier than a Sunflower? Nothing.
My favorite kitty picture:
Liza joined me for prayer time, touching my foot while I prayed. Sigh…that kitty is so sweet!
My recent home project:
I have wanted to create a gallery wall in our bedroom for some time; I finally got it started. I need to get a few more pictures copied and then it will be complete. Here’s how it looks right now.
What I’m celebrating:
