Girls Night Out

I'll admit, I'm feeling pretty spoiled. 

Lately I have been getting invites to so many random VIP events. 

For the girl without an official job, and on a tight budget, surprisingly my social life sure hasn't suffered because of all these great nights out. 

Earlier this month, I saw a prescreening of "War Room". Y'all. That is a good movie. It comes out August 28th, and it is all about the importance and the power of prayer. It has Priscilla Shirer and Beth Moore in it. I saw it with my dear friend, Shawna. It was such a fun night. 

Earlier this week, the official invite for the launch party for "For the Love" book was issued. The party is going to be in Texas, At. Jen. Hatmaker's. House. (That gorgeous farmhouse that hgtv redid...) Pinch me. Y'all. Not only was I selected out of thousands to receive the book months early (book release is August 18th), given the opportunity to write an endorsement for the book, virtually become great friends with all the other launch team members, and get adorable swag, but now, there is a real party, and I'm invited. Seriously. So now I'm praying for cheap flights. Come on. 

Tonight, I went to a special event at Anthropologie with a friend. We went to the Summer Fashion Show. It was a blast. There was macaroons, champagne, adorable notebooks on every seat, and so many cute outfits on the runway! I was so blessed to be able to bring my friend, Amber. Our friend, Sarah, was a model, and actually helped put the event on, so it was fun to support her. 

I am so thankful for all of these amazing (and free!) opportunities to have fun with girlfriends. Seriously. It is so good. I am having a blast.

It has been a rough week. 

Nothing dramatic or significant occurred. 

There was just a lot of little things. 

A nasty allergy-flu-cold hybrid took over my body, and left me beyond exhausted. 

I didn't meet my mileage goals at all this week or last. 

I've been mourning broken and lost friendships. 

Loneliness has taken over my household, and has left me longing. 

Lack of consistent income has created a bit of stress. 

My home is a disaster zone, and I don't even care. 

And I'm over here, just wanting a nap, and to fast forward this season. 

But tonight. 

I went to a fundraiser for a dear family. They are adopting a daughter this summer. I believe in what they are doing, and am so excited for them. 

I really believe adoption is God's heart. 

One of my good friends and I went to eat after. We talked, and it was good. On the way home, she had me read some verses that God had shown her earlier. 

Isn't it beautiful when God's Word just comes alive? 

I whined a bit about my week, and she just answered with, "let's pray."

So we just sat there, in my driveway, and just talked to a real God. We marveled, and thanked Him for His goodness, and that He chose us. We giggled and sang about how overwhelming His love is for us. And we just were amazed at who He is. 

Tonight, I am resting in the beauty of "I am Yours, and You are mine." 

Life feels a bit messy right now. 

But He is so good. And His love is gloriously overwhelming. 

And right now, that's more than enough.
