I took this photo with my phone, so apolgies that you can’t see all of the perfect details created by my friend Carey. The wreath has Peter Rabbit details and lettering that spells out “Rejoice!” There could not have been a more appropriate centerpiece for the weekend. A whole gaggle of lovely and wonderful people took time out of their Sunday to shower Baby Girl and I with love, gifts, encouragement, and really good food. I felt so blessed to be in the presence of so much joy.
I remarked multiple times about how surprised I was to have so many gathered together from various circles of my life. Because Phoenix has some ridiculous urban sprawl, some of the guests had to travel for over 45 minutes to attend, and yet they still came.
And then, the youth group that my husband and I have volunteered with for the past year surprised us with a mini showering of gifts at our end of the year picnic. Talk about a tear-inducing weekend, but these were the best kind of tears.
I think it’s hard for us to believe that God really does give good gifts. (It’s probably because our own hearts can be pretty stingy examples of generosity… or at least mine is.)
The abundant blessings on Sunday reminded me of the lengths our Heavenly Father goes to shower us with love. There’s not a bullet point for this post. I don’t even really have much more to say other than to remind us all that HIS GOOD IS GOOD.
When you end up alone in a giant city… His good is good.
When your plans fall through… His good is good.
When you fear leaving what you have to embrace what could be… His good is good.
When you obey even when you don’t want to… His good is good.
His good is so good.
