HI THERE!!!
Well, today sure feels like a Monday! I am in need of a few cups of coffee to get me goin! I had a fun but also sad weekend. First the FUN!
I made some lovely lemon cupcakes for a friend gathering yesterday. This pic is not them! haha! If it were I would be very very proud! I did take a few pics from the weekend that I will share hopefully tomorrow. We also enjoyed some lovely time with family and friends. I definitely feel like I got caught up on some rest too!! YES!

Now the sad part.....
A 9th grade boy in our church youth group passed away Friday. He had some heart complications they believe and it was very sudden. It was such a sad weekend, but a lot of good has already come out of it. I have been thinking so much about how important living each day to the fullest is. We are not guaranteed tomorrow...so we should live each day as if it were our last. I am so thankful and happy to know that Bryan was a Christian and is much better off now! His funeral is Friday. Please pray for the family...and also pray for my husband as he has been asked to speak at it. He is very nervous about it.
Sorry for the sad note! But I hope that encourages you today!
Have a beautiful day everyone!
With Love,
XOXO

I`m glad you had a restful weekend. I know what you mean.........it was a sad and kind of depressing weekend for us as well. The loss of Bryan and SO many others in the hospital and MANY hurting families all around. Pray for a family at our church who had a suicide death in their family yesterday. GOD IS IN CONTROL :) HE is SO FAITHFUL and ONLY HE can give us the comfort and strength that we need. Love you Amanda. We will see you Thursday night probably.

Those lemon cupcakes do look delicious. They look perfect...straight out of a magazine!

I am sorry to hear about the loss that has happened at your church. I pray that a lot of people grow closer to the Lord because of it.

So sorry to hear about your loss. We had something similar a few months ago with our church family. Very sad.
