Devotional: 1 Peter 5 // Weekend Recap: 80s Night!

So be content with who you are, and don’t put on airs. God’s strong hand is on you; he’ll promote you at the right time. 1 Peter 5:6a MSG

Man, if this isn’t a perfect verse.

Ever have a right place at the right time moment?

I know we’ve all had wrong place wrong times, an those an be quite terrible. But the right place right time moments can be pretty great.

I can think of a few times this happened to me.

Once I went shopping at dirt cheap. Got out of my car, looked down, and saw a $10 bill. Wasn’t a car or soul around.

I met Switchfoot when they came to Hattiesburg a few years back, because we were with a friend who knew some guys working, he hadn’t seen them in a while, and they gave us their neck tags to get in the back.

I can think of a few more times, but they are all the same. A surprisingly good thing happened.

And I don’t believe in coincidence.

It was God’s promoting.

Because he cares. Even about little things.

No matter what your dealing with, (or even if you aren’t dealing with something!) His strong hand is on you, and He knows when to promote you.

He also knows when to hide you, but that’s another post all together 🙂

So, 80’s night went well, to say the VERY least. We had a stinking blast! Here are some of the best pics of the night 🙂

We had a table set up for those of us who can’t tease our own hair…

And even the babies got it.

Lucy didn’t really have any hair to tease… so red lipstick it was!

Once we were done with all of our hair, and make up, and had the room smelling like hair spray (still does I think…) we did what all girls do.. Take pictures.

Tammy and Johnny took the cake. He wore his jersey.. FROM 1985!

Gah, so Vogue.

It was definitely a night to remember. We laughed so hard. We did some dancing, and some pictionary and it was a great night. The theme was basically, “Don’t get caught up in the past” Move forward. God has plans for us. And it was awesome.

Then Sunday came – and it was a great church service. Wesley dressed Lucy.

And in size Newborn socks.

Bless him.

And Lucy played in the chair. She fell back herself. This picture is hilarious though.

Church service was freeing. Literally, people released from so many things. Myself included.

Church that night was great too. Practice looks like this for me 🙂

And the picture to end them all.. Judah’s pouty face. He has MASTERED this face.

Look at that! Buy him the world… He better not keep that face going too much longer or all I will ever do is hold him and rock him and buy him whatever he wants. Lucy didn’t do this face. He’s got it down. I can’t let him know the effect it has on me 🙂

Ok, I’ll see you all later. Sorry this was so late! Hope the pics made it worth it!

PS – I’m taking his 3 month pictures TODAY. Promise.
