weekend review - grilled cheeses and chocolate

What did I do this weekend?

Well, I certainly didn't run.  And just in general, I didn't get a lot of anything done.  This weekend consisted of a lot of lying around with a heating pad and eating my way through every piece of chocolate left in our house.  But I'll try to be a little more specific for memory's sake.

Saturday morning, Colt and I got to attend a leaders gathering at our church.  Childcare and breakfast were provided, which made for a very relaxing Saturday morning.  We spent time together singing, reading scripture, praying, and sharing.  It was really neat and I feel so blessed to be a part of this church.

We had a little Panera lunch date after being at church all morning.  Duke munched on cheerios while he waited for his grilled cheese.

Is it possible to have too many grilled cheese sandwiches?  If so, I think Duke has surpassed the limit.

Saturday night my parents and sister came over to play with Duke and bring us dinner.  And Duke ate a cheese quesadilla - the Mexican food version of a grilled cheese.  I'm telling you, cheese and bread - that's what this kid eats.

Sunday was a great day and a bad day all at the same time.  Church was great and lunch out with friends was great.  Anxiety was bad.  I feel stronger and more capable of dealing with it since I've been in counseling and learned to really rely on God.  But there are still days when it physically comes upon me out of nowhere and overstays its welcome even after I try everything I know to try.  Sometimes time is the only thing that helps.  Those days are hard and exhausting.  Thankfully, not all days are like that.

I ended the night meditating on Psalm 91 and eventually, it brought me sleep.

Psalm 91

Those who live in the shelter of the Most High
    will find rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
This I declare about the Lord:
He alone is my refuge, my place of safety;
    he is my God, and I trust him.
For he will rescue you from every trap
    and protect you from deadly disease.
He will cover you with his feathers.
    He will shelter you with his wings.
    His faithful promises are your armor and protection.
Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night,
    nor the arrow that flies in the day.
Do not dread the disease that stalks in darkness,
    nor the disaster that strikes at midday.
Though a thousand fall at your side,
    though ten thousand are dying around you,
    these evils will not touch you.
Just open your eyes,
    and see how the wicked are punished.

If you make the Lord your refuge,
    if you make the Most High your shelter,
10 no evil will conquer you;
    no plague will come near your home.
11 For he will order his angels
    to protect you wherever you go.
12 They will hold you up with their hands
    so you won’t even hurt your foot on a stone.
13 You will trample upon lions and cobras;
    you will crush fierce lions and serpents under your feet!

14 The Lord says, “I will rescue those who love me.
    I will protect those who trust in my name.
15 When they call on me, I will answer;
    I will be with them in trouble.
    I will rescue and honor them.
16 I will reward them with a long life
    and give them my salvation.”
