A Good Day

Sunday was a good day. I woke up happy. I haven't woke up happy on a Sunday in a long time. Last week I resigned my position at the church. It was a mixed feelings kind of decision, but a good one nonetheless. So this Sunday when I woke up, I felt anticipation for the day ahead! I got to go to ADULT Sunday School class. I got to go to Worhsip Service. I got to sit under my pastor for both of those things and let the words of the Lord minister to my soul. My soul that has been wilting away doing other things. It was so refreshing to sit under the word of the Lord. To sing praise songs with others around. To hear others pray. To actually have fellowship with Adults. All things that I have missed during my stint in the preschool dept.
Don't get me wrong, it wasn't all bad. I do think the Lord has given me certain gifts and abilities and I was able to use those gifts to serve in that way. It's just that people and life got in the way and it made the job, work, instead of service. It is nice to sit back now and let the Lord minister to me through corporate worship again. I am thankful for the time that I served as Preschool Director. I learned alot about others and myself. I did enjoy aspects of the job. But now, I am free!
After Church we grabbed some lunch at Subway, (As part of our new healthy living!) Came home for some rest time, then went out to the Pumpkin Patch. It was so great to spend a beautiful fall day together as a family! We needed that. The weather was perfect and even though the place was busy, I felt kind of like we were in our own little world. The kids had a good time picking pumpkins. Dad not so much! Logan is our anal child and had to go down every row and examine every pumpkin until he could find the perfect one. Lana pretty much picks what she deams is pretty and then goes about her day. Lana is the most laid back and silly child. So it's like she just flitters through life at her own sweet pace. I really love that about her. It reminds me sometimes to just sit back and enjoy.
Stacy was having a hard time letting Logan go through his anal decision making process, but I figured...what the heck...usually I rush him into decision, why not see were this process ends up today. It was fun to watch him. It was refreshing for me. Sometimes I get so frustrated with him taking so long to make decisions, but its just because I'm impatient. I pray that he grows up taking his time. Working things out in his mind like he likes it. Of course I pray that he seeks the Lord in all of his decisions. Logan has such a tender heart and is so sensitive to the things of God. I am convinced that the Lord has amazing things in store for him. He is very unique, just like the not so perfect pumpkin that he wound up picking!
We came home and I made Stacy biscuits and gravy. His favorite. (No, not really a part of the healthy lifestyle, but Sunday is splurge day!). I love my husband. We have grown so much closer over the last few weeks. God has really taken some things in our lives and marriage and is turning them into something aweseome! Where we used to end everyday in seperate rooms, doing our own thing...We are now ending our days together, reading a book together and cuddling. Yes cuddling! Amazing huh?!
But I am so thankful for the work the Lord is doing in our lives and in our marriage. It's a lot of work, but well worth the results.
So thank you God for a good day. A day to worship, relax, and spend time with my sweet famiy.
