Hey y'all! I hope your weekend was as thrilling as mine-- Six Flags was a blast!
There is nothing nicer than coming home on a Saturday night very tired and knowing that you have a new effortless dress to wear to church the next day. I am so glad I found this great wrap dress at Our Thrift Store a few weeks ago. It's probably the easiest dress to wear I own now, and, most importantly, it makes me feel fabulous. I think sometimes how something makes us feel has a huge impact on if it actually looks good. :)

Pardon two spinning pictures-- I look suuuper asleep in most of the ones we took this morning, ha!
Our sermon today was from a guest elder, and wow, was it good! Ephesians 6:1-3 was our starting passage. "Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right. Honour thy father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise; That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth."
We focused on Genesis 22 when Abraham was asked to sacrifice Issac, his miracle promised son. The complete obedience that Abraham had to God and Issac had to Abraham is so astonishingly inspiring. How many of us can say that we would trust God to fulfill His promises like these two men did?
We also looked at Genesis 24 and the amazing obedience that Rebekah and Issac had towards their parents in the matter of finding a spouse. Issac trusted his father to choose a great wife for him (even trusted that his father's servant would find her). Rebekah was not only willing, but she was eager to follow the Lord's leading and her father's blessing/wishes to leave her family and go marry Issac. Oh that we would have such faith and obedience!
There is no age limit on obedience and honor to parents, either. Issac was near 40 when he married Rebekah, yet he still obeyed his father. Just because we turn 18 doesn't make us no longer under our parents authority. Even when we get married, we should honor them as much as we can. "Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right."
Thought I'd give y'all a quick snapshot of my time at Six Flags:
This was my first serious amusement park adventure and I so enjoyed it! I thought I loved high speeds and crazy twists and turns, but now I know for sure. ;) I did more laughing on rides than I did screaming, although I did a lot of that, too. ;)
You can sort of see what I wore for the day: dark jeans, tall super comfy boots, tunic, and long cardigan. I had a tough time figuring out what to wear... not having been on real roller coasters, I didn't know if a skirt would be a bad idea, so I wore jeans. I prefer to wear a tunic for modesty's sake, but I had to find one in my closet that didn't have paint or tractor grease on it since I usually wear tunics to do messy work. :P I was really quite pleased with how my outfit came out and it ended up working great and being just warm enough with thick leggings under my jeans.
I'm not sure what this week's posting schedule will be-- I'm attending the Family Economics Conference Wednesday through Saturday! So, I guess I'll see ya when I see ya and have an awesome week!
What would you wear to an amusement park? What are your favorite type of rides?
