It has been a really great week for us. We've been able to spend a lot more time than usual together which has been awesome...last night Chris and I went to Yorba Regional Park and had a little nature walk. I was a little freaked walking through the forest of trees in the dark but it such a fun night. We saw a bat, a jumping fish and some little animal (not sure what it was)...very exciting. I felt like I was in a horror movie the whole time though because I looked over my shoulder every 4 seconds to make sure nothing was behind us. The whole time Chris was pointing out the good bass fishing areas in the lake. Just so you know if you would like to know where to catch bass in a lake, bring me along...I can point them out in nothing flat.
Small group with my high school girls was tonight and it was awesome! We have been talking about prayer and what God says about it. Prayer is intense and is a privlidge, it's sad to think that so many people don't take it seriously or only pray when things seem to go wrong in their life. An awesome chapter on Prayer is Matthew 6:5-15, it talks about how we are to pray. There's a verse at the end of it that really hit my girls and I.
"For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men of their sins, your Father will not forgive you".-Matthew 6:14-15
That is really big and is a great reminder to all of us to forgive those who have hurt us or done something wrong to us. My girls are awesome and we are all so excited to be digging in God's Word every week learning something new and growing in our walk. I am so thankful for God using me where I am at, even when I don't feel qualified.
It's time that I go and pack now, Chris and I are going to house/pet sit for 8 days in Corona Del Mar. We are really looking forward to it and getting away...we're going to make a little vacation out of it. I'll post more once we've settled in.
