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 b-day. :)

Ok, so for my birthday, that was forever ago, we...first went to a book store in Fallbrook that I was disappointed in (sorry Emely).  I couldn't find anything there that I wanted.  But I had been wanting to go for a while so I am glad I finally was able to go.  We had lunch after that and then went to a park to do some photography.  The next few 'hundred' pictures are of that:

Owen really got into...and this is no joke. He loved it!

Me! Evelyn has the camera now...

Some more of Evelyn :)

A pay phone!?!

 So after the park we got smoothies and headed over to Target where I got some clothes and stuff, than we went back home.  We went out to Olive Garden that night for dinner and came home and watched a movie and had cake.
Now my birthday party was a whole different story.  It was just as fun, but in different ways.
This year I had a combined sleepover with two other friends at my house.  It was a lot of fun.  We went to the mall for a scavenger hunt, which was so much fun and has lots of stories on its own.  We had pizza and soda for dinner, played Catch Phrase and Just Dance and then watched Maleficent. 
All the girls. 
Us, three girls on the right are the birthday girls!
These were the party 'thank you' gifts.  Bookmarks.
