Our Week Thus Far

In Uncategorized on February 26, 2009 at 4:12 pm

It has been a pretty good week thus far. It started out with an unusual Sunday afternoon actually spent in the city. On most Sundays we stay in Chester all day for both church in the morning and Common Ground at night. We usually spend the time in between visiting family. It is nice really. At the same time though when we actually come home after church in the morning and do not go back to Chester for CG it always feels like a wonderful little vacation/date that Phil and I are taking together. I went to a school meeting (the whole reason we came back to begin with ) and then we drove to Short Pump with Phil’s brother Chris for a trip to Mecca, otherwise known as WholeFoods. Ahhh. It was awesome. The rest of our night was spent creating a great lentil soup from scratch and watching a ridiculous film called “Pineapple Express”- not my favorite film by a long shot, but some parts made us laugh really hard.

In other news of the week, Phil has been sick with a virus and out of work for two days. He went back today and I think he is feeling better. Thank God he did not get the flu. Everyone seems to be getting sick with it. I have been popping Vitamin C and Echinecea like there is no tomorrow. Even though he missed work I am glad Phil got to stay home. He rarely gets a substantial amount of time to rest since our weekends are usually full. I believe strongly in being alone for periods of time and I know that Phil needs this and so I was blessed to see him get rest. Selah’s will always be taken advantage of in our home. I pray.

Last night we had the opportunity to hang out with our dear friends Casey and Aubri Kluver from Montana. It has been a year and a half since Phil and I were last in Montana and we have been missing our friends there a lot. Though the reason they are on the East Coast is quite sad it was still a blessing to be able to meet up with them. They drove down from DC last night and we took them to Nile, an  amazing Ethiopian restaurant, for dinner. It is always great to share a meal with friends. There just is nothing quite like it. After dinner we drove to Chester with the intention of stopping by Pastor Shawn’s house to talk for awhile and then going to Wednesday night church. We never made it past Shawn’s house…and we kept him up a little late. Oops. I believe it was a much needed time though and it was a blessing to be there and here the discussion and love between everyone there. Phil and Casey fully enjoyed the chocolate chip cookies while I fully enjoyed the Franco’s chocolate lab. Casey and Aubri are both awesome individuals and an awesome couple. I am so thankful to God for all the incredible people he has put into Phil’s and my life. People we can laugh with, have great conversations with even when we have not seen one another for over a year, and pursue the kingdom of God with. Thanks for these people Lord. Watch over them and continue to lead them.

Lets see what else? Well in little news I have two papers due tomorrow that I really should be writing right. I should also probably go for a run since it is beautiful outside. I hope to run over to the Commons tonight because they are hosting a GoGreen Bike event with giveaways. Who does not love a good giveaway?!

I pray wherever you are and whoever you are, that you have a week filled with hope, people you love, and a race that is worth running.

May we all finish together!
