I have a bunch of things floating through my mind right now, so this is going to be a hodgepodge post! Yea! ;o)
1! It is so cool to me how God can just interact with you when you are least expecting it. I think that I mentioned recently that we have not been the best about going to church this year… It seems like something always happens on Sundays, like a work emergency or someone ends up sick. So I am always thankful when we do make it. And yesterday’s service was awesome… Worship really hit home with me in a big way. Well, this morning, I was taking Zeeva to her first play date with a new friend and I have the radio on a Christian radio station that I listen to about 75% of the time that I am in the car. The very first song that came on the radio as we were driving down the road was “One Thing Remains” by Jesus Culture. I have only heard this song once at church and never on the radio, but it hit me like a ton of bricks. It is definitely my new favorite. The lyrics that really got me were “Your love never fails, it never gives up, it never runs out on me”. Even now, I have tears in my eyes just writing them. In the car, I was crying as I was belting out the words. It was an amazing interaction with God, out of the blue. It was Him saying that, no matter what, He is there and He LOVES me. Nothing can ever change that.
Higher than the mountains that I face
Stronger than the power of the grave
constant in the trial and the change
One thing remains
Your love never fails
It never gives up
It never runs out on me
Because on and on and on and on it goes
It overwhelmes and satisfies my soul
And I’ll never, ever, have to be afraid
One thing remains
I’m confident and covered by the Power of Your great love
My dept is paid
There’s nothing that can separate
My heart from Your great love
Ok, now let me see if I can even switch gears after that one!
2! Zeeva had so much fun at her play date this morning! I brought her over to my sister’s friend’s house. She has a daughter who is just about two months older than Zeeva. I do not know why we never thought about it before, but they had a great time playing together. Most of the kids Zeeva gets to see at church are boys, so it was nice to see her playing with another girl. And I think it will help them both get over the shyness that they tend to have around other people. (although Zeeva is starting to grow out of that sometimes) she got so worn out that I had a hard time keeping her awake in the car for the drive home! I had to bribe her with a snack! I am just glad I had some with me!
3! Zeeva is going to go to her first ever GYMNASTICS class on Wednesday morning! Woohoo! I think she will have a blast and am hoping that it will teach her some patience (because she will have to wait her turn). She must be gearing up for it though because she did her first ever somersault after lunch today! She did about 20 of them in all. She was sooo proud. It was adorable.
4! We have had some amazing weather the past few days, and it is supposed to be getting hotter again for the rest of the week. Which I am actually glad about. We have had such a hot summer that our pool has been like bath water on most days. So we have not gotten in it very much, but I am hoping to really get a lot of use out of it this week. Soon enough, it will be time to close it for the season. Which is depressing since it was so stinking expensive to get it opened this year! I think we may try to figure out how to close it ourselves this year, instead of paying a company. It is in-ground, so it is a bit trickier to do. But it would be a LOT cheaper than the other option!
Well, I think that is all the Hodgepodginess that I have for you all right now! I hope it was not too random for you! ;o)
