Lovely weekend

My weekend began Friday night with a Ladies seminar at church. I admit that I was exhausted and wanted to have a nice evening at home with my Michael, but I knew that I needed to go to the seminar and take advantage of the banquet table of God's provision for my spiritual nourishment that my church was providing. I am so glad that I did. Our speaker, Susan Heck, was great and spoke on Philippians about issues that I really needed to address in my daily walk, joy, murmuring, complaining, anxiety, and contentment. I am anxiously awaiting her book on Philippians that will be coming out in a couple of months.
You see, our ladies Bible study last fall and this winter/spring was on her book on James. Talking about painfully convicting.
Then Sunday morning, we had the privilege of hearing the testimony of the George and Jennifer Lawson. He is a candidate for our youth pastor opening. Then Sunday night, he preached to our congregation. All in all, it was a great banquet of God's provision for my spiritual nourishment.
On the knitting front, I have all the parts of my Tangled Yoke Cardigan connected and have 1" of the yoke knitted. I lack about 19 more rows and then I will get to do the cable part. It takes a great deal of knitting to get to that yoke. I hope to maybe be there tonight. It takes forever to do a row. 332 sts per row!!!!! That means 6308 sts to the cabled yoke. Maybe not, it is my wash and ironing day today.
Tomorrow is my weigh in day at Weight Watchers. That is still going well and I am continuing to walk every day for exercise. I feel slimmer, but I don't think that I look slimmer. It is a good feeling to be doing something about my health.
This week we will be celebrating our Ben's 21 st birthday, so I have a busy week ahead.
Off to get some of my ironing done. I hope your weekend was as great as mine!

Being spiritually fortified will keep you going all week when it is busy. The sweater sounds like a good knit! (This shawl I am doing is near the outer edge and that means 46 sts X 24 sections! Talk about slow rows!)
