for frequent highlights, follow me @robina_black

highlights from my week:
- i love living in the country & all the gorgeous views that come along with it! there is a farm just down the road from us that has such pretty land & livestock!

- we are working on coming up with a plan to prep as many meals as we can for each week. with a busy schedule, it's easy to just pick something up because we don't get home until late and don't feel like cooking. however, our budget & bodies don't like that. so we've started prepping healthy meals for lunch & dinner that we can just grab & go!

- have you ever thought about how small the Bible is in comparison to the magnitude of truth & life that is found in its pages? it's astounding how such a small book has the power to change lives drastically! it's almost like there is something supernatural going on! ;)

- saturday we went to a college campus near our house that has a huge lake with ducks, turtles, and swans. we took some bread and fed the animals and it was fun! we found these pretty ducks and they kinda look like turkeys so we called them turkey ducks!

- our church plant was one small group that was pretty large - so we multiplied into 3 groups this past week. before, the small group was on wednesdays and it was very hard for us to make it with me working over a lot. now that we have 3, there is one that meets on Sunday nights! we had our first Sunday night small group last night & we are excited to get plugged in again!

  1. Sounds like a great week! Isn't it incredible how much truth is held in such a relatively small book? It's a powerful thought.
