Hello Readers :)
Hope this Sunday finds you well, what a wonderful day it has been for me. It started off early, I woke up at 5am in a panic because I thought it was a work day for Aaron. I jumped up and gasped, woke him up and said "your going to be late for work"!!! He then reminded me it was a Sunday...don't you hate it when that happens? Cant remember what day it is, or forgetting what day it is? Anyways...since I woke up with adrenaline I couldn't fall back asleep.
I was able to get ahead start on our Sunday morning since I was up early. Aaron and I were able to enjoy a nice breakfast together and not running around like chickens with our heads cut off. :)
Church was great! My sister Abigail and I twinned out today, that's the funny thing about sisters. You often think alike, even though we no longer live with each other we still happened to pick similar outfits.
Pastor preached on the shepherd and the sheep, he explained how sheep are ignorant animals. They cant do anything on they're own. They don't have the ability to find water, or food. Sheep have no means to defend themselves. He continued to go on about how helpless sheep are with out the shepherd to guide them and lead them. It made me think of how we are so much like sheep. Christ is the Good Shepherd, without him I would be helpless. I would have no hope, no means of life. I am so thankful for THEE great Shepherd I serve.
After church Aaron and I went to my parents house, and dropped Jedidiah off there so we could go on a date. We haven't been on one for 2 months, and with Aarons work being so busy, we thought it would be a good idea to get some nice time alone.
We went to a BBQ place for lunch, one of my families favorite places. Aaron had never been there before, so we went there. Oh, it was SO good. I had catfish, Aaron had beef brisket. They have been the first restraint since we have moved from Alabama that serves sweet tea up here. Down south they serve sweet tea like water, no body up here has sweet tea.
We enjoyed some long good discussions on all sorts of things. We then went to Barns & Nobel, we walked around for quite awhile just talking and occasionally looking at random books that caught our eyes. We ended the date by going to Mcdonalds to get Aaron a chocolate milk shake, we don't like eating unhealthy. We don't often have sugar, so dates are our time to splurge...and Aaron has this obsession for ice cream so he got his fix haha ;)
We picked Jedidiah up, went home, took a nap and slept for a couple hours...(Aaron and Jedidiah are still sleeping) I woke up and went for a mile run between ran storms. (working that catfish off) ;)
A lovely day, relaxing day spent with my man! Cant beat that!!
Last week was my moms birthday, so Aaron and I watched my siblings for a couple days. We always enjoy having them over. Jedidiah gets so spoiled when they are here, he just gets held and has every ones 100% attention. I love being able to take the kids off my moms hands for a couple days, she has raised 9 kids and deserves a break now and then. She is my #1 godly, mother, and wife roll model.
Also had a VBS meeting at church last week, cant believe its that time of year already. I'm assisting a couple ladies with teaching the kindergarten class! I'll be doing the actual teaching a couple nights. Our VBS is in June, so excited for that!
Aarons older brother Cal, is getting married in July. He and his future bride live in Florida, so we will be heading down for that in a little over a month. We are going to make a little family vacation out of it. We are also going to stay in Alabama for a couple days with Aarons parents. We are pretty excited to be headed back south to visit friends and family :)
Our sweet Jedidiah is 4 months old now, where has the time gone?!
He has his 4 month check up on Tuesday, we are so anxious to see how much he has grown!! He has started making such silly, and serious faces. He has just about rolled over on his own, he hates being on his belly so I think that's why he doesn't completely do it. I do think he might be teething here soon, he drools so much. Half of his shirt will be SOAKED from drool. He also keeps bighting on things, he will just lay and chew on anything he can get a hold of haha...like this morning at church he was enjoying chewing on my scarf. :)
Well I hope I have updated you enough on things, let me know how yall are doing :)
God Bless- Hannah Bamberg
’Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just to take Him at His Word;
Just to rest upon His promise,
And to know, “Thus saith the Lord!”
Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him!
How I’ve proved Him o’er and o’er;
Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus!
Oh, for grace to trust Him more!
