why yes!
it is so!
time to put on your silly hats... it's friday!

with the back to school week almost under our belts it sure feels refreshing!
successful!
soon... we'll have the swing of the whole new school... new routine... thing.

what have you got planned this weekend?
anything exciting?
maybe some much needed r&r?

not positive yet what's on our agenda...
all i know...
you gotta love those moments when you are "taken".......
i think i had mentioned...  a few days back... the drive to the school?
well... this morning we were running late...
the apt was left a complete disaster... not one bed made...
i was feeling crushed by all the to do's...
and frankly VERY overwhelmed and bitter about our temporary situation...
when on my way back...
an oldie but one of my favorite goodies came on the radio...

i tell ya...
i was taken...
His grace was sitting in the passenger seat this morning right next to me...
covering me...
all i could do WAS "surrender"!
 tears poured from my eyes... and i smiled not only with my mouth but...
with my gracious heart.
it was like He knew i needed to know right at that moment "i was not alone"...
He was right there... listening... feeling... understanding...
and most important... reminding me how lucky i am!

He is a wonder isn't He.
how He meets us where we need... whenever we need.
you'd think the fact that i wasn't presentable... wearing no makeup...
having thrown clothes on in a haste...
for goodness sake... i still hadn't brushed my teeth... like i said...
we were late...
NOPE...
He still grabbed me... hair a mess and all... He loves us like that.

as i was saying...
not sure exactly what's on our plate this weekend...
what i can say...
it will involve a grateful heart and i'm pretty certain silly hats of some kind!
hoping the same for you!
