Cousin Time

Today was a lot of bustling to get Marie and Zane ready for their departure. We did manage to have a cup of tea to help soothe Marie before her plane ride with her little teether. :)
We are missing them so much right now. Benjamin and I arrived home with the feeling that our balloon had popped. We have begun to plan out next get together lol! 

I am excited to start my routine. I am attempting to start a running schedule in the morning after Benjamin has left for work. Its really nice to have Winston as my companion while I'm running. He usually just stares at me until he falls asleep! :) 

We have found a really nice church here. We missed our Easter Sunday service due to our frustrating sickness. It sure feels good to feel good again LOL! :) And I am excited to go this Sunday!

 Now laundry, organizing paper work and many other projects, here I come! Luckily the weekend is almost here again and I will have my Benjamin! 

God's greatness and goodness is so abundant and I can't help express my love for Him! 

Much love to all of you, my sisters in Christ!

1 Keep me safe, O God, 
for in you I take refuge.
 2 I said to the LORD, "You are my Lord; 
       apart from you I have no good thing."
 3 As for the saints who are in the land, 
       they are the glorious ones in whom is all my delight. 
 4 The sorrows of those will increase 
       who run after other gods. 
       I will not pour out their libations of blood 
       or take up their names on my lips.
 5 LORD, you have assigned me my portion and my cup; 
       you have made my lot secure.
 6 The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; 
       surely I have a delightful inheritance.
 7 I will praise the LORD, who counsels me; 
       even at night my heart instructs me.
 8 I have set the LORD always before me. 
       Because he is at my right hand, 
       I will not be shaken.
 9 Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; 
       my body also will rest secure,
 10 because you will not abandon me to the grave, 
       nor will you let your Holy One see decay.
             11 You have made known to me the path of life; 
       you will fill me with joy in your presence, 
       with eternal pleasures at your right hand.

Psalm 16:1-11

Oh Wow! What fun to get to see these pictures. My favorite (if it were possible to pick) is the last one. What adorable Grand babies I have:). I feel sad that Marie is gone:( I know you both must carry on but still. I love the house pictures too. It is such a nice house sweetie. And by the way, your kitchen was not at all messy. LOL I just love it. Thanks for the scripture verse. Its really good.
Love you

What a lovely "life update" post. I am so happy that your sweet family has found a church there. I am sure it was sad to miss Easter Sunday though. We are in the middle of "church shopping" and ended up at a very large, old church on Sunday where the pastor (literally) spent 20 minutes discussing the beauty of welcoming spring and only 2 minutes on Jesus or His Resurrection! He didn't even open his Bible! So I am with you in feeling like I missed celebrating Jesus' Resurrection this year.

I hope you get back settled in to your lovely home (I looove all of the pics-- so inspiring) now.

Meredith, I am sorry about your Easter Sunday! I can imagine that you will not be returning to that church! I will pray that the Lord will direct you all to the right church family. It can be really hard when you don't have one! I am so glad you liked our home ;) It encourages me to keep up the posting and the pictures!

These pictures of Winston and Zane are too adorable! What fun it will be for them to grow up together!! I'm going to be starting an exercising program in the mornings as well, running and yoga:)

Oh, and I would love to show you how to convert a VHS to DVD,whenever I learn,lol! Also, I'm reading many adventurous books that I know little Winston would love to read in the future like, "Johnny Tremain", "Robinson Crusoe", "Treasure Island","Great Expectations", great classics!

Hope you and your family had a very blessed Easter!!
