Hello dear Bloggy Friends! ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy Tuesday to you! I hope your Memorial Day weekend has been filled with many good things!

After weeks of feeling miserable, I’m pleased to share we had a GREAT weekend. (It is so good to feel well again!) Here are some quick Memorial Day weekend highlights…

* John and I had a date night while my mom kept all the kids for a sleep over.

I sure love my man! (and thanks, Mom!)

* We spent Sunday night with our good friends the Torresson’s. You may remember, Tom Torresson nearly lost his life a few years ago (miracle story here), and I cried for weeks last fall when they moved to PA. It was our first time together since they’ve moved ~ and we had a blast ๐Ÿ™‚

(Picture above ~ Me, Jen Torresson, Lora Grabow, and Steph Bergsma. I love watching how God orchestrates our lives together)

* Lastly, after a fun Memorial Day parade and family cookout…

~ we enjoyed our new family surprise ~ a TRAMPOLINE from Grandma and Grandpa Stille. Woo Hoo!

Yes, if you live in my neighborhood, you may see my red hair bouncing up and down over our fence. What fun!

(Does anyone have any good trampoline games to play??)

* Voting Update

As many of you know, Circle of Friends is hosting a contest for Top 25 Mom’s of Faith blog.
I have to confess ~ I’ve been really wrestling with the whole thing, and I’ve prayerfully decided to pull out of the competition today.
(I am THANKFUL for my friends who have been so kind in posting on FB and asking others to vote on my behalf. I’m so humbled by your support).

I started this blog to point others to Jesus, and want to make sure my one and only focus is ALWAYS pointing anyone and everyone to HIM ~ and not me. (I am NOT judging anyone who is participating in this fun competition. For me personally, I just sense I need to pull out).
So, if you have voted for me ~ thank you so much! ๐Ÿ™‚ And thanks for understanding! ๐Ÿ™‚
And lastly, one of my favorite, fun little quotes…

“Live your life in such a way that when your feet hit the floor in the morning, Satan shudders and says…”Oh no, she/he’s awake!!”

Do you have a favorite quote/scripture/word of encouragement? Share it with us…please! ๐Ÿ™‚

Many blessings to you!!
