Thoughts on this Thursday

I’m co-hosting a baby shower this weekend. There are so many cute ideas on Pinterest it is almost overwhelming. Here are some of my favorite favor ideas:

We dog sat last weekend and surprisingly, I’m ready for a dog and Garth is NOT. This is funny because Garth was the one telling everyone we were getting a dog this year and I was hesitant. After this past weekend, I’m beyond ready and Garth is now hesitant about it. Aye aye aye.

My dear friend, Anne, is going through a really difficult time right now. I admire her strength and her faith in God so much, but if you all could be praying for her that would be amazing.

I think if I ever could convince Garth, I would love to be a Realtor team with him. I am so obsessed with HGTV and Zillow. I have such a fascination with houses, even after I found the house of my dreams. And now there is this show Love it or List it on HGTV that combines house hunting and design makeovers. Oh my goodness, I am obsessed!!!

Our small group has finished our latest study, Hole in the Gospel. It was an incredibly eye opening experience and I would highly recommend it. I learned how naive I am so it was good to hear the poverty of the world and get a little uncomfortable and motivated to do something about it. I would definitely recommend it, it had an impact on all of us.My heart was broken for what breaks God's heart and I don't think that will change. And if I start to forget, I will pray for God to break my heart again for what breaks His heart.

Now that we are done we are on the search for a new study, any recommendations? This past study was pretty intense in the subject matter and homework so I might just prefer something a little bit less intensive. But I really am open to anything.

Although they can be a bit of work, dogs are such a wonderful addition to the family. I dont know what i would do without my little fur baby!

I am so grateful that I got m dog!!!! They are a lot of work, especially if you get a puppy, but it in the end, there is nothing like coming home to a dog that is super happy to see you and snuggles with you!

A dog brings such a different but good dynamic to your family. I hope Garth hops on board.

We love Love & Respect, have you read that one? Our small group is going through it now. Also, I hear Tim Keller's marriage book is awesome!
