When Sinners Say "I Do" Discovering the Power of the Gospel for Marriage

The gospel is something we need in every area of our lives.  In marriage and in singleness.  In joy and in sorrow.  In good times and in hard times.  When life feels good and when life feels confusing.  This book showed so much of my need for Jesus and His grace. It calls us to look at our own sins and not be so easy to point out the sins of those around us.   It shows the great gravity of our sins.  We can all tend to point fingers and defend or blame our sins on others or life circumstances.  I think especially today it is so easy to do this and not truly see our sins.  "It is wrong, not because of what it does to me, or my spouse, or child, or neighbor, but because it is an act of rebellion against the infinitely holy and majestic God." -Jerry Bridges "There can be no small sins against a great God." -J.I. Packer Dave Harvey mentions in the book that with true sorrow of our "little sins", our awareness of God and His mercy grow. Be quick to see our own

My Mom's birthday

So my moms b-day was on Wednesday.   We were all so excited because #1 we get school off #2 we get to have Panda Express and, #3 we get special drinks. We don't get those things often!
Here are a few pics:

Evelyn and I put out gifts for my mom the night before, so she would wake up to this:

      Evelyn made this, it is so adorable: 

      I made these muffins for breakfast:

      And some ice coffee. In October ;)

               We also went to the beach:


It was a fun day!  Even though Owen ended up with a cold and we weren't able to do what my mom first planned to do. Instead we went through a few model homes, had lunch, went to the beach, had pizza for dinner, came home to watch Belle (the best movie in the world, by the way) and had ice-cream cake for dessert. 
But the biggest blessing of all was/is my mom on such a day and everyday!  The Lord has blessed our family very much with her!
