Hospitality, Friendship, Encouragement

Monday, May 17, 2021


 Well, our family night ended up being just the four of us. My mom didn't feel well, Lindsay and Joseph didn't come, and Nate and Kay and girls didn't make it either, since she'd taken all four girls to a homeschool event and was really tired (so were the girls). 

Never the less, we ate pizza and played a game. We learned Skyjo at Emma's house last weekend, and had fun so I bought it on Amazon and it came in just a few days. Sarah says it is a lot like a card game called 'golf' except in this game you use 12 cards each.

Saturday found Watson sleeping on the couch most of the day. He always sleeps cozy.

Tim, Sarah, and Kyle split wood, and Kyle has sore muscles to show for it. I prepared for guests on Sunday. Our great friends the Westbrooks came over for lunch. I made bbq beef in the crockpot, cole slaw, and baked beans. Jen also brought veggies and fruit. It was a great day of catching up with them, and sharing about the Lord being at work in our lives.

I'm grateful that the Lord never gives up on us, that he is always working good on our behalf, even when we go through trials and struggles. He never leaves us, nor forsakes us.

Today, Sarah and I will be helping our friend Denny return his rental car and pick up his repaired car! A few weeks ago in a wind storm a neighbors tree branch feel and shattered his rear window. He's going to treat us to breakfast or lunch, depending on what time it's ready to be picked up.

How was your weekend, friends?


  1. Sounds like a nice weekend overall. I'm sure it was so good to catch up with your friends! Hope your mom is feeling better!

    Our weekend was somewhat low key. After taking Kati and family to the airport on Friday afternoon, we did the usual "after guest" things (laundry, changing beds, eating leftovers) as well as some planning for the next few weeks. We were able to fit in our usual Sunday afternoon drive too!

  2. Sounds like a cozy and fun weekend with family and friends.

  3. Quiet weekend for me. Pleasant enough.

    Your weekend with just the four of you also sounds very pleasant. I am intrigued by the game as I am always looking for a game to add to The Christmas Collection.

  4. I love your weekend and that you still played a game! You do stay so busy and I love that about you, too!
