This week I will be turning a year older, so I have been reflecting a little bit. Don't get me wrong, I am excited about my birthday, but sometimes getting older is hard... I honestly can't even believe that I am about to turn 29!!! My life has just flown by & honestly it's been a blessing from God in every way, even the difficult things! BUT I have found that as time passes, I often judge my self-worth by my lack of accomplishments in life. Sometimes I get caught up in the feeling that I am just getting older & not getting anywhere... Of course, every time I think like that it brings me down so quickly! And it is really sad, because it also discredits what God has done & will do with me. Instead of getting caught up in the worldly views of success, my primary goal should be to please God in all things! So, I am going to be excited about growing older & I am going to thank God for all that He has done & for all that He will do, because He is faithful always! As we all go about our lives, we should always try to remember that self-worth can not be found in this world, because all things of this world will fade away... It is only in Christ that we can truly feel loved & worthy!! (I read this beautiful blog post today & it encouraged me!)
Anyway, it was a great weekend, filled with a little bit of early birthday celebration with family & a few other fun things! So, here are some snapshots from my weekend...
My favorite breakfast lately... a mini bagel with strawberry cream cheese & chocolate milk!
On Saturday, my church had a ladies tea & the theme was "dolls"... we made & decorated doll cakes for the table center pieces (& for dessert)! They were really fun to make!
Playing euchre on Sunday afternoon with my mom & grandma! (My sister & I won!!)
We will be going to a Rockies game this week (for my birthday)!! So excited!
& a couple more "golden hour" snapshots! Prettiest time of the day!
