Weekend at Home

I can not explain to you how great it is to be home for the weekend. It did rain most of the weekend, which was perfect and meant that we did lots of sleeping in and napping. Saturday I had a meeting for my bible study that starts in a few weeks and I am very excited about getting started back and in a schedule with bible study. CBS (Community Bible Study) really makes me be more consistent with my time in God's word. Plus I just love the growth and knowledge that I gain through CBS. Although over the past two weeks, on the mornings that I get up and run (at 4:30am) I have so much time before I have to be at work, I have started to have quite and sweet time with the Lord during this time. It is so refreshing to be with Him. I am reading Walking with God by John Eldridge. It is a very easy read and has been a great tool for me at this time in my walk with Him.

Saturday night we went to some friends house to watch the Bristol race - which I was thrilled to see Carl Edwards win the race...for those of you who don't know I am a Nascar fan. I know that this may be shocking to many of you. My favorite two drivers are Ryan Newman and Carl Edwards. Carl has actually won the past two races and is 2nd in the standing. The reason I like Carl is because he does a back flip when he wins and I think that is super cool! Anyway, it was fun to visit and hang out with so many friends who we don't get to see very often.

Football is right around the corner. Can you believe that it all gets started this weekend. I can't. Justin is headed to Atlanta for the Alabama/Clemson game and Doc, Brinkley and I will be headed south to the lake for the Labor weekend. I love football season and it has already started with the trash talking this year. I have to admit that we are respectful of each others team, so it isn't bad at all - but we have fun with it and like to give each other a hard time! Justin did tell me "it's on this year" I guess that we'll see how that works out. War Eagle for now and I love you all!

I want you to know that when I've been feeling sorry for myself for having to run at 5:20 a.m., which means I have to get up at 5:10 a.m., I think of you and your 4:30 a.m. and then suck it up. Thanks. Isn't it dark then? I already have to have pepper spray and a flashlight, but I'm a bit paranoid. Your right though, it is nice to have a few minutes of peace and quite in the morning.
