God’s Goodness and Weekend Rattles

When I think of the Goodness of Jesus
And all He has done for me
My soul cries out Hallelujah!
Praise God for saving me!

This chorus was recited during testimony service yesterday and it holds so true for me!  God truly is a Good God!  He has richly blessed me in so many ways, I could never repay Him!

We had a really good weekend this weekend!  It was busy but a good one!  Friday I picked up both kids from child care, (hubby went to Ft. Wayne with a friend from church so it was just me and the kiddos!) went home and got busy!  I did up all the straggler dishes from the week.  (Never fails, I have a sink full by Friday of ones I didn’t get done thru the week)  Earlier in the day I had ordered Dish Network and they were coming Saturday morning to get us hooked up so I did some cleaning and rearranging in Corbyn and our room’s.  I switched some TV’s around and I rearranged our bedroom.  My what a job!  We have a king size bed so moving that is a beast in itself but then the boards underneath are broken so we have stacks of old books that we don’t use to help support the pressure points.  Needless to say it is a big job for one person in a small bedroom!  But I got it done and it felt so good to have all the dust bunnies swept and everything dusted and fresh sheets!  Jocelyn had a blast while I was tackling that job!  She was crawling under the mattress where it was propped against the bed, I think she thought it was a tent!  She was also playing in her room so nice!  I think where I am working full time now, by the weekend she is usually very cranky and clingy but that night she played so nice! 

Saturday I had a baby shower to not only go to but to fix all the food (approx 45-50 ppl)  Thankfully I had some help from some wonderful sisters in another church in our Organization.  Still, I started cooking around 10 am and the food was ready to be served by 2pm!  Long day but it was fun!  This is the menu I came up with, we were going with an Italian theme:

Italian Beef Sandwiches
Italian Meatballs
Pasta Salad
Grape Salad
Crackers and Hummus
Pickle Rolls
Toasted Ravioli
Dill Cucumber sandwiches on Rye

It was a lot of fun but I was not hungry by the time I was done!

Sunday we of course had church in the morning and then came home, changed ate quick and went to my Aunt’s to celebrate my cousins 15th and my 28th birthday!  It was a lot of fun and good food.  We had to eat quick and get changed again and left from there to go to Church again at 6.  We got out around 8, came home, had a snack and went to bed (after a quick peek at the Steelers/Jets game).

Like I said, busy but good weekend!  Currently I am chewing on some new budget and weight loss strategies.  Will be posting more later about those!

God Bless and have a good week!
