II Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Happy April 26th Baby!

Today is Matt's 33rd birthday. I used to cringe when I said that number because anything that started with a "thirty" sounded old to me. Now I am learning to embrace it. These are the BEST years of our lives! We look better, feel better, are more in love, are growing stronger in our walk with Christ, are more financially stable---than EVER! Why would I ever want to go back to the 20's??? I honestly think that from 30-39 will probably be the decade that we look back on when we're in our 80's and say "those were our best years." Just thinking about that makes me want to make the MOST of this time.
I got up this morning at 5:15 a.m. (on a Sunday!!!) so I could get all my work for the doctors office done so I can take Monday off and spend the whole day with my hubby--just the 2 of us. He took off work and my mom is keeping the kids overnight tonight...so it'll just be us. We're not doing anything expensive or extravagant...but this will be the first time we've ever had 24 hours of alone time in our own home, and I'm totally looking forward to it. I'm even considering turning the phone off because I don't wany any interruptions. :)
Anyway, I know most of you remember back about 9 months ago when I was crying my eyes out about turning 30...but I'm SOOOOO okay with it now. 30 is the NEW 20 as far as I'm concerned! :)
Okay, I better get back to work if I'm gonna get this all done before church this morning! Love y'all!
