This weekend we visited some family friends of my parents. Such good people! Her husband is in the hospital and cannot speak but responds with body movement. I really enjoyed our visit with them. Such a strong woman in the Lord! It was encouraging to hear her reliance and trust in Him. Her attitude and hope is simply amazing. So much faith! It made me think of my own marriage and the “in sickness and in health” vow we have made to each other. So much unconditional love that could not be with the grace of God. Seriously, #goals.
It has been so rainy here lately, which means so much splashing outside. 😉 The sound of rain against our windows is one of my favorite things about the spring. Sometimes we open our balcony door and the sound is amplified. I think we might even try to go mushroom hunting sometime. When I was a kid, we used to go out with my parents and pick morel mushrooms. The best time to go is after a lot of rain. While most wild mushrooms are poisonous, morel mushrooms are not and are very delicious when breaded and fried.
And the rain means we make yummy food like this coconut oil fudge. So delicious! And it’s actually healthy – the best part! I love chocolate. Sometimes I can get away with eating kettle corn when I’m having a chocolate craving, but nothing else satisfies it other than chocolate. Will definitely be making that fudge recipe again. And again. And maybe again. 🙂
Sunday night means women’s group which I love! We’re doing a Beth Moore study (gotta love Beth!) and we talked about friendships. So good! Some issues she hit on: are we labeling our friendships properly (friends VS acquaintances)? What is a friend? What does sharing your heart look like? Definitely spoke to me.
How was your weekend?
