Our weekend

We went to a conference this past weekend called "Higher Calling". It was a really encouraging and inspirational time, and the experience left me in awe of how AMAZING God is!

Saturday we had a pizza picnic in the park....


SWEET lil' Natalie


Jaden decided that sticks tasted better then pizza :)





 And we were able to play FOOTBALL with some people from Lighthouse church. Meg snuck away from the game and took some pictures.... I love action pictures, especially football action pictures :) 

WE-HAD-A-BLAST!!!!














On Sunday the preacher that was speaking that morning talked about how that no matter what situation we are in or what kind of valley we are going through, we can cling to a hope that things are going to get better.
Even if we have troubles and hardships our whole life long, and we never see the miracles that we are so longing for.
We can still hang on and keep fighting because when we have Christ in our hearts, we can look forward to an eternity in heaven.

As I was thinking about all of this I heard one of my favorite songs play on the radio called "Move" by Mercy Me.
Since it is Music Monday and since it fits with all the thoughts that are going through my head right now, that I would share it with you all.
It's a great reminder to me that I don't have to give up when I go through hardships. I know I'm not here on earth to have a good time and live a perfect life, I'm here to give God glory no matter what the situation may be.
I can live each day loving, praising and serving God with all that I am because I know that no matter what happens... there ARE going to be brighter days!!
