Give me Your Eyes

You know that whole World Mission Team Leader thing I mentioned? This is my prayer for the people of Christ Community Church - that we would bring our hearts so that we can see God's and that He would give us His eyes to see what He sees.

Dave (our pastor) sent out this video link yesterday and the timing was perfect - it is my prayer for us. I had never heard of Brandon Heath or this song before, but you can bet I'll keep my ears open for more of his stuff. :)

Leave a comment and tell me what you think of the video. What kind of thoughts does it provoke?

Also, if you want to hear an amazing sermon on The Blessed Life, go here.

Random Updates

Hi all.

Here's a brief rundown of what's been going on with the Moon family over the past 3 or so weeks:

*Justin threw his back out. Apparently he has a bulging disc in his extreme lower back. This put him on the floor for several days. Literally - the man was on.the.floor unable to do much of anything. Getting to the bathroom was at least a 10 minute ordeal and it's only about 10-12 feet from the living room. I was pretty scared. I'd never seen him like that and I didn't like it. He spent his 28th birthday laying on the floor. Thankfully, our wonderful friends came over later that weekend and surrounded him on the floor for a make-shift birthday celebration. He's much better now, but still having to be super careful about how he moves and still wearing the brace a good bit.

*We celebrated our 4th wedding anniversary this past Thursday. Justin was sick. He had a terrible cold and couldn't breath through his nose. His throat was also super sore and his voice sounded like he had sandpaper for vocal chords. It made my throat hurt just listening to him. But he took me out to eat anyway, and we got dressed up and went to one of our favorite places in Atlanta - Rock Bottom. Let me say now that it is not a dress-up place, but I didn't care because I wore the dress I bought while we were at the beach and still hadn't worn it yet - so I was determined to wear it no matter what. Justin was pretty miserable all night, but he did enjoy about 1/2 of his fish tacos so he was happy. I very much enjoyed my BBQ chicken pizza, and we took leftovers home and shared them on Friday. So yummy.

@ Rock Bottom

*The house is still coming along. Justin and his Uncle Buddy installed our new sliding glass patio door on Saturday. It looks fabulous. The kitchen cabinets are finished. The living room, kitchen, and bathroom walls are painted. The bathroom vanity is painted and the hardware is on, but we still have to decide what to do about the countertop. I'm not sure I want to tile so we just have to decide. We bought two new sinks and two faucets that are ready to install as soon as we figure out the countertop. Mary's husband, Chad, works at a flooring place and he's coming this afternoon to measure for our new flooring in the kitchen and dining room. Hopefully that will be installed this week. So - we still have several things to do, but we are so close to being done! Yay!

*I'm the new team leader for the new Global Outreach Team (aka Team World and World Mission Team) at Christ Community Church. So.super.excited. More on that soon.

That's all I've got night now folks. Time to put Bella down for a nap.


P.S. I should have a new camera soon. Yay! So maybe then my posts won't be so dreadfully boring.

Yummy in my tummy!


I just added about 5lbs of water weight to an already bloated body.

But OH MY were they so scrumdidilyumptious!

In other news, the house is coming along (our stove is here, but waiting for us at Lowe's) and it is my goal to be moving in the house on Labor Day weekend.

T minus 18 days. {what does that really even mean?!}

That might not happen for many reasons, one of which is that it's a holiday weekend so there may not be any one around to help us move (since Justin can't really lift anything) and I certainly can't carry all of our crap down three flights of stairs all by me lonesy. Savvy?

But still. It's my goal.

La Dee Da

So yeah. Two weeks. That's a long time. Too long, in fact. I apologize to all twenty of you who actually stop by on a regular basis. And I would just like to say Hi to my lurker from Mableton, GA that stops by numerous times a day and stays for quite a while each time. I have no idea who you are and to be honest I am really hoping that you are a friend and I just don't realize it. Because if not, I'm tempted to think you might be a stalker. And that's a little creepy. Ok, really creepy. Not that anyone would ever have any reason to stalk me, but still. It's creepy.
So how bout you leave me a little ol' comment and clear that up for me. Thanks.

And YES, I keep a close eye on who visits everyday. Hey y'all!

So anyway - there's been a good bit going on the past two weeks. I'll be back later today or tomorrow to fill you in on that.

Right now I have three orders to fill, an adorable little girl to play with, and I am working on a new face for the blog. I think it's time.

Oh yeah, and my 1 year bloggy anniversary is coming up this month so I'm coming up with something special to celebrate. Stay tuned!

P.S. If any of you happen to have extra money laying around and want to bless us with a new digital camera (since ours has gone absolutely caput and blogs are pretty darn boring without pictures) and/or an island range hood that'd be great. I'm just sayin is all.
