Friday Fun Facts #6

1. So, I started a wellness/fitness challenge with some girlfriends this month. I’ve been working out every day this week and I am so stinkin’ sore! Peppermint essential oil is my best friend right now because it’s able to soothe the occasional muscle ache.

2. This week is also VBS at our church. It’s my first time to actually work a VBS because, well, I love my kids, but have a hard time with other people’s kids. I kinda lucked out because I’m known as “the oil lady,” and I am at a tent where the kids make homemade lavender hand scrubs. So, I get to smell lavender all day and talk about Jesus to little ones. It worked out nicely.

3. On that note, my boys get to hang out at VBS too. It is an incredible feeling to watch them sing and dance for Jesus… I was hiding in the back where they couldn’t see me watching them and my heart was overflowing with joy.

4. The other day while I was sitting in our recliner, Noah wanted to sit in my lap. Well of course, after Tim saw Noah in my lap then he wanted to be in my lap. And then Isaac started whimpering because he realized he was missing out, so I ended up with all 3 boys in my lap for a good 30 minutes. It was a tight squeeze, but a sweet moment.

5. When we sing “If you’re happy and you know it,” little Isaac started singing “Hooray!” and throwing his hands in the air. I can’t believe how fast he is growing!

Tonight

We had a busy and eventful weekend of camping… while one by one everyone got sick with a stomach bug, except me and Isaac. That being said, I wanted to post some lovey gushy post in honor of Nathan and my anniversary, but no time for that! So, I decided to post the lyrics to the our song we danced to for our first dance at our wedding. It’s a beautiful song called “Tonight” by JJ Heller. Enjoy!

Love, you are lovely
You have put the stars to shame
I have lost my senses, and you’re the one to blame
Bluer than the sky above, closer than my skin
Tonight our life begins

Now we are dancing
We spin like falling leaves
Hold me tighter, darling
I never want to leave
As we move across the floor it’s starting to sink in
Tonight our life begins

You are mine, beloved
And I am yours to keep
Take my heart forever
You have captured me
God is singing over us, we hear it in the wind
Tonight our life begins

Here’s a humorous picture for you people who need comic relief:
