Saturday morning, I went to Panera Bread for an Essential Oil party a friend was hosting. I LOVE sharing about oils and what they can do for your family! It was also a great excuse to just get out of the house for a little bit without kids in tow. ;-)
When I got home, John decided he wanted to go swimming, so off we went to Mac's Point. There weren't many people there and the water was slightly chilly but we still had a blast. The weather was absolutely perfect. Gorgeous white clouds against a brilliant blue sky, the greenish of the trees and all of it reflected in the water.

On Sunday, we had another great sermon at church (don't think we've ever had a bad sermon LOL).
We read from Joshua 23:1-11
1Now it came to pass, a long time after the Lord had given rest to Israel from all their enemies round about, that Joshua was old, advanced in age.
2And Joshua called for all Israel, for their elders, for their heads, for their judges, and for their officers, and said to them: "I am old, advanced in age.
3You have seen all that the Lord your God has done to all these nations because of you, for the Lord your God is He who has fought for you. 4See, I have divided to you by lot these nations that remain, to be an inheritance for your tribes, from the Jordan, with all the nations that I have cut off, as far as the Great Sea westward. 5And the Lord your God will expel them from before you and drive them out of your sight. so you shall possess their land, as the Lord your God promised you.
6Therefore be very courageous to keep and to do all that is written in the Book of the Law of Moses, lest you turn aside from it to the right hand or to the left, 7and lest you go among these nations, these who remain among you. You shall not make mention of the name of their gods, nor cause anyone to swear by them: you shall not serve them nor bow down to them, 8but you shall hold fast to the Lord your God, as you have done to this day. 9For the Lord has driven out from before you great and strong nations; but as for you, no one has been able to stand against you to this day. 10One man of you shall chase a thousand, for the Lord your God is He who fights for you, as He promised you. 11Therefore take careful heed to yourselves, that you love the Lord your God.
Point being this:
God has everything in His hands but He ALSO has His hands in everything. Meaning he's in control.
Sunday afternoon, Kathleen and my niece and great-niece came over and we headed to an amazing store called Bargain Hunt. And when I say amazing, I mean AH-MAZ-ING. This store gets "damaged" goods. The only thing that may be wrong is the box was crushed but the inside, the most important part, is perfectly fine. At discounted prices. $100 pillows for $20 kind of discounts.
I scored 3 huge pillows for my couch, ya know, b/c a certain blue dog decided my original couch pillow/cushions were evil or something and worked on destuffing and shredding them. LOL Do you know how uncomfortable a couch is withOUT those pillows? Uck.
Anyway, I think they're supposed to be outdoor pillows but they match my color scheme (kinda) AND I only paid $23 for all 3 of them!!! The tag said $78 but it also said it was a 3-piece set. So I asked a guy and he said the manager on duty would honor it, suh-weet!
I also bought a slip-n-slide for $2. A little chilly to be using now but it'll be ready for next year! :-D
I'll definitely be heading back there again to find some more sweet deals!
What did YOU do this weekend? Anything exciting? :-)
