This month we got to enjoy several fun things, beginning with an outdoor date night in our downtown. They close down the street and turn it into a mini festival on Friday nights, with live music and lots of good food!
My parents were in town one weekend, and we got to do some Saturday morning shopping followed by tacos at one of our favorite places! (still loving my $14 tote from Amazon!)
I also met up with my sister and her family for lunch one weekend – it’s always fun any time I get to hang out with these cuties!
Paul’s dad plays in a local orchestra group – he’s the trombone player on the left – and we attended their spring concert. It was a casual pop concert that was a lot of fun to watch.
This was the final song, and the conductor invited all the children to come down front and “help” him conduct. So cute!
May Shopping Favorites: Old Navy and Target Finds!
It was time to replace my summer shoes, and I couldn’t be happier with these that I ordered from Target:
- Nude Wedges
- Slide Sandals – the perfect casual shoe and so comfortable
- Gray Kids Sandals – these are my house shoes! I normally wear women’s size 6, and the kids size 6 in these fits the same.
All Target sandals are 20% off through the 29th, so this is a good time to grab a pair!
From this month’s Bible reading: “He guards the steps of his faithful ones, for a person does not prevail by his own strength.” I Samuel 2:9
As I read through the accounts of King Saul and King David this month, I was really struck by their very different reactions when life didn’t go their way. King Saul took matters in his own hands and ended up dead. David leaned on his relationship with God and ended up as King of Israel and part of Messiah’s line!
David said this: “Be gracious to me, God, be gracious to me, for I take refuge in you. I will seek refuge in the shadow of your wings until danger passes. I call to God Most High, to God who fulfills his purpose for me. He reaches down from heaven and saves me, challenging the one who tramples me. God sends his faithful love and truth.” Psalm 57:1-3
That’s not to say that David had an easy life. He was betrayed, plotted against, hunted and slandered throughout his life. “To hope in God is to put your trust in his unfailing love, even when you don’t understand the circumstances.” (Jerry Bridges, The Joy of Fearing God)
