This weekend I took a cake decorating class with Super Friend Kristen. Here is my very first attempt at a professionally decorated cake:
DUM DA DUM!!!!!!!!
I’m Ok with it, because there is no way to go but up.
I will keep you posted on my cake decorating adventures. The pressure is on, because Super Friend Kristen is a domestic MANIAC, so I, who am domestically average, will make it my mission to strive to keep up with her cake decorating-wise.
Dreamy Scott left this afternoon for a week in Alaska, so the kids and I had root beer floats on the patio. I don’t have a picture of it, so I am including a picture from a few weeks ago that pretty much captures the spirit of the evening.
The kids are in bed and I have a few precious hours to myself. Yesterday I received a Bible Study I ordered from Lifeway, Kay Arthur’s Covenant: God’s Enduring Promises. I will mull over this thick, pithy study as I continue to shape the Bible Study I am writing, God With Us, about the dwelling places of God unfolded through the covenants. I start Covenant tonight. I joyfully anticipate this study, because Kay Arthur is a luminous Bible scholar and I sop up her teaching with an awed and grateful heart. I have so much to learn from it. I will work through it in my quiet times while I incorporate appropriate slivers of what I learn into God With Us.
Will you pray for me as I dive into Covenant and cultivate God With Us? Sometime soon I will post about the intimate adventure of my personal journey into the covenants; how the dwelling places of God unfurl in an endearing and majestic arc through covenantal history. I invite you into my Holy of Holies, where the Holy Spirit has immersed me in tidal wave depths of worship and insight that have changed me forever.
