YAY it's Finally Friday!

This week has been sssoooooo LLLLOOOOONNNNNGGGGGG! Sunday was hectic (see blog below). On Monday Eric and I did a 24 (actuallly 23) hr fast. We had nothing but water!!!! It was a detox and a way to jump start our "HEALTHY EATING". However, we are going out of town this weekend and I hope we can stick to the healthy part of the "healthy eating". Tuesday, Eric left for Birmingham at about 5:00 am or so because 2 members at Church were having surgery. I was left to grocery shop, clean house, and cook dinner (Nicole Pugh and David Turner came over to eat with us) on my off day. Wednesday was just a long day at work and then to Church. We went into the REVIVE class (since Eric has someone teaching the teens this quarter on Wednesday nights). WOW! I love being able to go in their sometimes...... When I leave I know its just what I needed. I love being around the teens and I love hearing my husband but I know sometimes its really good for the both of us to just be able to walk in a class and hear a lesson together. Especially at revive. I love that we get to sing the "devotional" songs and hear a great lesson that is so applicable to our lives! Rust Adair really put things into perspective. Then on Thursday Eric was out of town again.... He went with Brian to Mobile to check out camp (Gulf Coast Bible Camp) to do some planning for the week they direct during the summer. Then as soon as he got back he has basketball game in Montgomery so I did not get to see him until about 8:30 last night..... I also found out that my mom is changing her week of camp to the Montgomery week (this is the one I will be going to) so we can have the week together. She helps Eric and does crafts and the Gulf Shores Church will be joining us for Montgomery week this year so it only made since that she and my little brother attended the same week as they did. YAY! Today I woke up feeling great! Not just because it's Friday but because we leave with the Young Adults today to go to Panama City. We will be attending Encounter as a group and I am so excited! This will be the first thing that we will get to go on as a Young Adult group. We usually do monthly devos but something about getting away and having a retreat with other Young Adults just seems so wonderful. In Gulf Shores we did not have any young adults to do things with so Eric and I are really looking forward to this event. Like I mentioned before we LOVE our kids deerly but every now and then it is good to be able to do something for us that is spiritually uplifting! We dont have to worry about anything but ourselves and the lessons we will be hearing! I know this will be a great weekend for all of us! Yay for Matt and Katie Griffies who decided to take on the resposibilities of planning this event (welcome to our world lol)! So pray for all of us and that we will have a safe and uplifting weekend! I hope to have pictures up when we get back!
