On Eagle's Wings

On Eagle's Wings
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:29-31

Weekend Fun

The forecast for this past Saturday was very grim calling for severe thunderstorms. I was kind of regretting that we had said we would go over to watch Jack play baseball and then bring him home with us, but decided to just trust the Lord would get us over there and back safely. It stayed cloudy, but no rain happened and the clouds turned out to be a blessing since Jack's game was delayed for over an hour and it was HOT along with very strong winds that would not stop. As it turned out a little later, I should have brought sunscreen instead of an umbrella because the sun did come out and we were able to see Jack's team play a full game. It sprinkled on us coming home just a little and we made it through the day with no rain.

Jack had a single and then made it all the way home. 

We came home and had a little time to go to the park before it was time to get ready for church.

Did I say it was very hot outside? Yes, it was and so we dressed accordingly for church. DH and I were greeters and to our surprise, by the time we were standing ready at the front door to greet, the weather had drastically changed and now, it was a blast of cold every time we opened the door! We survived and thank goodness, I was able to get the loan of a shawl to stay warm.

A little iPad before bedtime.

And a little more iPad while I cook breakfast.

Finally, a look at that sweet face!

Jack wanted another Rubik's cube, so on Sunday morning we went shopping. The morning was gorgeous, but geez, it was 48 degrees and the wind was still so strong, it felt even colder.

The storms east of us were tragic and the flooding everywhere and the loss of lives  was disheartening. We can never know when such things will strike and I'm sure the people who were affected never dreamed how their day would end up when they awoke that morning.


  1. Yes-indeedy- Look at that sweet face! He is all boy and just as cute as can be. Our weather is the same way, Connie, warm one minutes and freezing the next. I am really tired of all this spring stuff going on around here.

    I hope you have a beautiful week- xo Diana

  2. I'm glad Jack got to visit with you and that you all are okay. Yes, it is sad about the storms and loss of life in many areas.

  3. He is all boy....and such a cute face. So sad the tragedy of the storms.

    Love sky pictures.

  4. We don't have the drastic temperature changes that a lot of the country does, but we are still getting pretty cool mornings, which is nice. It will heat to boiling soon enough I am sure. Glad you made it through that cuties game! Enjoyed hearing about your week-end. Have a good week!

  5. He does have a sweet face!! Glad the bad weather missed you, so many were not so fortunate. We were supposed to have storms Saturday night but they went northeast and missed us.

  6. I heard about the severe storms this past weekend. I'm glad you were able to enjoy the baseball game without a downpour. I'm impressed with the Rubik's cube. I was never able to figure it out! Have a great day.

  7. That is indeed a sweet face! So glad you got to see him play his game and that the weather sort of cooperated. The storms were terrible and tragic.
