I have the best bloggy friends and they are so funny!!!

My friend Jenny who happens to live in the same town as my friend Jenna… no coincidence, they are good irl friends… anyway, I posted on my birthday about things I had received in the mail. You might remember this picture of my birthday gift sent by Jenny? After I posted that Jenna emailed and said to let her know when her gift came because she thought I would get a kick out of it. I was searching my brain with curiosity over what I would get a ‘kick’ out of. Jenna knows me pretty well so I figured if she thought I would get a kick, I would indeed get a kick… she was right!!!

Look what came today from Jenna!!!!

I love it enough to have two, it’s precious! Thanks Jenna & Jenny for making my birthday double the fun!

This is the day the Lord has made.
We will rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 118:24

I was driving my daughter Emelia who is nine years old to the Omniplex the other day. She had missed the church van because she overslept. She had been really looking forward to this church outing. I told her not to worry, I would drive her and find the group. She questioned me the entire drive to the city. “What if they won’t let us in?, What if we can’t find the group?” I heard these questions repeatedly and I replied, “It’s going to be fine, I will take care of it.”
After I said this the first time I smiled and immediately thought about God.
I imagine He thinks the same thing when He looks down at His children and sees us worry and question things, but He’s got it covered!
That gave me a really peaceful feeling. Thank you God for that sweet reminder.
