over the weekend...
...I took a little road trip.
My friend Julie and I drove to Kansas City to visit Mandy, a dear friend from college.
Mandy just had her first baby...a sweet little girl. We spent lots of time cuddling precious Addy and I started getting very excited about soon having a newborn to cuddle of my own.
Mandy is a natural with Addy. It was so fun to see her in her new role as mama.
Congratulations Tim and Mandy! It was so great to see you and meet your beautiful daughter.

...I heard this.
Our sermon on Sunday was entitled Fight the Good Fight of the Faith based off of 1 Timothy 6:12. I was so challenged. One thing that really stuck with me was this point:
It's a Fight to Develop Your Faith
I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.
Our pastor said that we have to take intentional action to develop our faith.
Jesus said, "I am the vine (I'm God); you are the branches (you're NOT)".
Apart from Christ I can do NOTHING.
In Christ I am productive and will bear fruit.
The evil one (Satan) wants to disconnect me.
The Holy Spirit wants to connect me.
How well connected am I?
This part of the sermon reminded me so much of why I did the 30-day challenge. My time with the Lord needs to be the priority of my day...everyday. I need to stay connected to Him.
So this week I am thinking on that.
