Weekly Bible Verse

Earlier this week, this verse was on one of my daily Bible apps. Something I have really grown to enjoy about the Bible apps is the explanation of the verse that follows. 

I often way over plan, and end up having a huge internal conflict: Am I planning too much? Is this disrespectful to God? From this verse, I believe we are being taught not only is it okay to to plan, but it is something we should do. Furthermore, when I look deeper into the verse, I feel as thought God is also teaching us the importance of investing. Not only should we save money, but it is also important that we invest our time into what we value. 

What do you take away from this verse?

A Look back at 4th of July

The Fourth of July has always been one of my favorite Holidays! I would consider it at least in the top three. This year was one of the best ones I have had in several years! (Disclaimer: Last year, Logan was on a TDY at Fort Knox and it rained the entire day!) 
This year, Logan was on another TDY assignment, this time to Fort Benning for Airborne School. We were blessed enough to have friends their to spend the holiday with, not to mention some of his family made the drive to spend time with us too!!
We wasted no time enjoying the weekend with friends and family. We started the weekend off on Thursday night having dinner with our friends! 

 We started the morning off with some festive donuts...
...followed by a a little pool time.
What's a Fourth of July, without a cookout? The thing was, Jacob and Allison's apartments did not have their grills working yet. We settled on purchasing a $7 charcoal grill from Walmart, and yes, we threw it away....
While Logan was grilling, Jacob was busy perfecting his coconut cracking abilities....
Meanwhile, Jocelyn and I prepared the corn.
But every great chef needs an assistant...
And while our spread may not be the most beautiful ever seen,

After we came out of our food commas, we adventured over to Downtown Columbus, which is actually pretty beautiful!
 After checking out the quaint Downtown area, we thought some more food sounded pretty good!
Next stop, the river front.
 It was the perfect place to spend the evening, relax, and wait for the fireworks!
Who doesn't love fireworks? But really, all my pictures of the fireworks suck. Sorry. Amateur over here....

We ended the weekend on Saturday with a trip to Six Flags.
It was such a great weekend spending time with friends and family, and celebrating America!
