Home Sweet Home

 I got the chance to visit my parents earlier this week. I just love them. :)
We've already had many many wedding conversations, and I somehow seem to keep them coming.
It was so nice just to be home though.
We had delicious tacos, and then went for a walk on the farm.
(ps- I grew up on a farm.)
It was a beautiful afternoon.  I couldn't help but feel so blessed in this sweet time.
As I walked along, I was careful to drink in the spring air of home, remembering that I will soon be off to see the world with my handsome soldier.
A new thought crossed my mind. -All my life I've found such comfort in being "home", the place where I grew up, surrounded by my beloved family.
Enjoying this time and feeling so loved by our Father, I couldn't help but hear His sweet whispering reminder that while I was indeed home, the place I call "home" in this world, He has promised so much more to each of us.
Ahh-- just this thought was amazing to me.
It's crazy to know that as comfortable, joyful and loved as we feel in our homes here, none of it compares to His Kingdom, our Home.

Romans 5:8

We. are. so. loved.
I read this verse last night and can't stop thinking about it.
Wherever you find yourself on this Friday, I hope you are reminded of how truly loved you are.
Just as we were loved in our darkness of sin, we are called to love others regardless of how seemingly difficult it may be.

Happy Friday, ya'll. :)

Wedding Weekend in Pennsylvania!

This past weekend Jon and I traveled to Pennsylvania to see some of our beloved friends tie the knot!
First, we stopped through DC to visit Jon's family.  Such a lovely time as usual, and we got to eat at one of our FAVORITE restaurants, La Madeleine. yum yum yum. 
The drive was pretty long, but when accompanied by Jon and his awesomely comical roommate, Drew, we are bound to have an entertaining ride.
They enjoy beat boxing together.  I enjoy laughing.  It works out. :)
It was wonderful just to spend the weekend around these sweet people.
Tex and Michelle's love for Christ really shone through the entire wedding.
I cried like a little baby at the overflowing blessing of their union.
Simply beautiful.
And this was my first wedding with Mr. Jon. :) Super sweet.  We had a wonderful time.

149 days until it's our turn!

I hope you lovelies had a wonderful weekend!

So blessed,

You Lead: Jamie Grace
