Coolest Cake, Benefits, and A Highlight

One of the benefits of spending time with my mom and dad: my mom braids my hair.

Milkmaid braids

She’s much better at hair styling than I am.

And my dad snuggles Sadie and reads with her. The best.

I finally got her to wear the shirt I made her!

Our church had a Father’s Day cookout after the evening service last night and we had the coolest cake. We missed so many celebrations and gatherings due to COVID-19, so the cake just included everything that was missed, lol.

Welcome back cake

The cookout was awesome and it was so great to spend time eating and hanging out with our church family late into the evening.

Something I’ve been enjoying lately is completing a Bible reading plan and devotion with my sister in the Bible app. We read the devotion and scriptures and can comment back and forth in the app. Technology can be pretty cool sometimes 🙂

Philippians 4:7 reflection Anxious for Nothing

The reading we did yesterday was reflecting on Philippians 4:6-7.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

The part of the devotion that I highlighted above really simplified that verse for me. I give God the worry, He gives me His peace. Of course, that’s often easier said than done and it’s something I have to do constantly, but wow, what a trade. God is good.

Tell me about your weekend!
