Thanking God for Friends!

"A friend loveth at all times."-- Proverbs 17:17

Well, the painting party was a success! We were able to paint the WHOLE house!! It was so awesome to have friends and family over to help us. God never ceases to amaze me with the love and kindness that He pours over us in the shape of our friends. We are so incredibly grateful and humbled by the sacrifice of our friends and family to take a Saturday to help us. (Especially those who are going to be having a baby in 5 days!) We feel so incredibly blessed by your service. It's such a beautiful picture of God's love.

For the first time today I was really excited about the move. I think having our house full of our friends and family made it feel more like home. Last night I was getting a little emotional thinking about leaving our house and all of our memories here--but today it really hit me that our new house will soon be home and we'll make new memories there. And today we made our first fun memory. Thank you guys!! :-)
