Just a quick Saturday morning hello. Sitting in my big comfy chair in the living room, Joey cat purring on my lap, watching the sky turn from black to a bluish gray.
Toben and Emma left a bit ago for a long weekend in San Diego. He has some meetings in Pasadena on Monday and Tuesday, she had some airline miles about to expire, so they're off to spend the weekend at the beach (Beacon's, to be exact) in Leucadia with Uncle Jim and Aunt Susan.
Having Emma go too makes me feel a little bereft. Somehow I always think of her as my baby, though she's soon going to be ten. 10! In fact, I started feeling a little bit panicky about her being gone, but then she and I talked about the memory verse we've been learning as part of Psalm 91.
"For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways."
So at some point in the past hours, God has commanded his angels to guard Emma on this trip--in the plane, in the car, while she's away. And so I can rest secure, knowing that she is well protected.
Audrey and I are excited to have the next four days together. We have yet to come up with any big plans beyond babysitting the cousins this morning while my sister does a photo shoot out in Parker. Then I think we'll hit the Walmarts for some groceries--including some special fun things to eat--and then, well, who knows?!
Audrey's still sound asleep, so I think I'll head down the basement to run on the treadmill before Ava, Tyson, and Levi arrive.
What are you up to this weekend?
