Friday Randomness

I am up at 4:30 this morning (and most mornings).  Although not intentional, it gives me time to do chores, read my devotional, and blog of course :)

Today's message from my devotional: "Jesus, we love Thee.  We see that all things are planned by Thee.  We rejoice in that vision." 
This is so true to me.  Everything that happens in my life is a result of His plan.  It is sometimes difficult to understand why things are happening, but if I just trust in Him, I always find a way to see the good.

This morning is Ben's Christmas party!  I have organized the whole thing (mainly because I am so Type A that no one else is allowed) and I hope it goes smoothly.  We are having donut holes, assorted fruit w/ yogurt dip, a veggie tray with ranch dip, and a cracker/cheese tray.  We also have an assortment of crafts, including sand ornaments, magnets, and ornaments to paint.  The gift bags hold books, silly bandz, stamps, chocolate gold coins, peppermints, and Jelly Belly candy canes.  Pictures to come! 

Tonight is date night!  So many people offer to babysit for us, and I never take them up on it.  Tonight is the night.  Greg and I are going out to eat and then to a movie.  I resolve to make "date night" a priority (at least monthly).  I can't wait to have some alone time to talk without interference :)

I am excited about a girl's reunion (Class of 94') coming up in January.  I didn't think I would be able to go, but everything has worked out.  Then I realized it was still more than a month away :(  Can't wait to catch up with everyone's lives!

I seriously need to wrap my presents.  Hopefully, today is the day!
Happy Friday!

Your getting up early is just like Greg's Grandma Frances. She got up before 5 every morning to pray and organize her thoughts before the day started. Love Debbie
