Last Week's Happenings

This last week off was a busy one. 

It started Monday evening with a celebration dinner at Olive Garden for Jason's mom's birthday. We had a delicious dinner, yummy cake, and a good time with family.

Wednesday morning, Jason and I were reminded that this life is short. Jason received a call that one of his former students was killed in a car accident on Tuesday night. Jason spent a lot of time with Bubba while Jason was his youth pastor and they have been in touch ever since. It is always a shock when someone's life ends at twenty-one. Jason came home early from working out of town, and we rearranged some things in order to be able to go to his funeral on Friday afternoon. The funeral was a reminder that we are not promised tomorrow, and we all need to make sure we have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and are living our lives for him. Bubba's grandfather also reminded us to make sure we tell our loved ones everyday how much we love and care about them.

Thursday we headed to North Carolina to take some appliances to our friends Brandon and Jenny who are moving into a new house. We also stopped by Jason's property and Whisper Mountain.

Friday night we had a good friend over for dinner before she headed back to school for the year. Jason grilled and I took care of the sides and dessert!

Saturday was kind of a lazy day, which was much needed. We had lunch with my parents and dinner at Jason's parent's house. Jason decided he wanted to try a low country boil. It turned out good in the end, but we had a couple of glitches in the process and it look a couple of hours to bring together!

Sunday morning we headed to church. They just started a new sermon series called Epic. Today was about the gospel- Jesus died, He was buried, and He rose again. It is epic! 

2 Corinthians 5:21 (NLT)
"For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ."
