It was a big weekend - full of fun, friends, blessings & of course, ups & downs.....
Friday, my hubby walked in the door with a rose for me. How sweet is that? It was the perfect rose, & it just made my day. That was a good way to start off the weekend.
Saturday morning, I got to go meet up with some friends & watch their son play football. Having Ricky's girls all grown up, I completely love to enjoy everyone else's kids - & there is nothing as fun as kids & sports. The way they play it "all or nothing" - I just smile at them. And the little cheerleaders are just too adorable - everything about it just makes you happy. Oh, to have the energy & pep of these kids! Was I ever like that? I dont remember.... guess its been awhile since then.
And Sunday was the big event for Stephanie's Hope Scholarship Fund - the event that was planned in memory of my friend Stephanie which raises money for a scholarship for people who want to go on a mission trip. There was a BBQ lunch & it was just a perfect day for the event. People came out & supported it & it was just well received.
It made me miss my friend so much on a day where it seemed like certain things could fall apart - but then you do an event like this & see that no matter what, people are good, people are full of support & God is full of love that He shows through different ways. I know Stephanie would have been so happy for the funds that were raised & the idea that it will help someone fulfill a dream of going on a mission trip around the world.
It was just awesome to see so many people who knew Steph & those that didn't know Steph there to support this new Mission Event. Oh - that those that never had the opportunity to know her ......if they could see what an amazing person she was......but I think they see it through her kids - her son, her daughter & her grandkids were all there working & serving. What a testimony her family is.
(The picture is one of Steph's grandbabies working to serve the drinks - how big she's getting!!)
And for those of you that didn't get to see the video before of what this event is for or all about, here is a little bit of info about it. I can't wait to see how God will bless people through this fund & to see the things God has in store for the future events. Nothing is too small for God! Expecting great things!!!
Wow, it looks like you had a really busy but fun weekend.ReplyDelete
