My favorite day of the week is here again! It’s been a wonderful week, and I am excited to share my favorites with you today!
Yesterday, Steve taught his last class for the year. He now has a ton of grading to do, but it’s crazy to think that this is now summer for him!
Ever since Nolan was a baby, I thought he should be a drummer. He’s always been able to keep a beat!
On Sunday, our pastor’s son Matt was playing a Cajon box drum during the worship service. We sit in the very back, and Nolan has a lot of trouble sitting still and paying attention. He stays for the music and then goes downstairs with the other kids for children’s church. When I went down to get him after church, he was sitting on two styrofoam boxes that he had made into his own box drum! It was adorable! He really amazes me sometimes.
On Wednesday, I shared my favorite spring/summer dress! It’s so easy to just pull it out of the closet, put it on, and run out the door!
Yesterday, Astleigh and I shared the simple spring décor we have around our homes. I think the pink flamingos were the perfect addition to my walls! Thanks to those of you who linked up with us!
I’m now on day 4 after my gum graft surgery. So far, so good! I’ve been walking around with cold and warm compresses on my face for the past few days. It’s been tough to find food that I want to eat, since I have stitches both on the roof of my mouth and on the front gumline. Steve is a sweet husband and makes me pancakes and chocolate milkshakes :)
I still haven’t seen the actual graft since the putty dressing is still covering up my front teeth. Thank you for your prayers for quick healing!
And now for the GIVEAWAY!
Of all the books, movies, and music I’ve given away in the past—This is my FAVORITE giveaway yet!
I have loved the artist PLUMB since she first came onto the Christian music scene in 1997. (EIGHTEEN YEARS!) I’ve collected her albums, and her music has resonated with my soul through junior high, high school, college, and now my life as a wife/mom. Tiffany Arbuckle Lee only gets better with age! :)
Steve went to her concert the week before Ephraim was due, and I couldn’t go because I was so pregnant, and it was out-of-town!
PLUMB’s seventh album EXHALE was released on Monday. If you’re a Christian radio listener, I’m sure you’ve heard the song, “Lord, I’m Ready Now” played frequently on your station.
The title track “Exhale” is currently my favorite.
”Just let go,
Let his love wrap around you
And hold you close.
Get lost in the surrender.
Breathe it in, until your heart breaks,
We do not exist for us,
But to share Your grace and love
The EXHALE album is full of songs of gratitude and hope, reflection and worship.
Musically, this CD has a variety of styles. For example, “Great is Our God” is a beautiful, almost-hymnlike song, and then there’s “My True Love” which has a catchy dance beat that my boys and I immediately loved.
