A Joy-filled Weekend

What I'm learning:
Jesus promises that storms in life will come upon us. They are inevitable. But we don't have to be caught off guard by them. We can be prepared when the rain starts to fall by putting on the armor of God, which may be rain boots for the storm coming. I don't have to fear even when I'm in the midst of a hurricane of life because I trust and worship the One who is in control of the seas and the storms of life. And He gives joy unspeakable. {thanks to the blog ladies who put on the Hunter Boots giveaway a few months ago. I love them!}
What we have been up to:
My mom & sister, my ohana, came to visit us Friday! We got caught up on life, talked about Jesus and how we are praising Him in the storms, and we also ate lots of chocolate and shopped until we dropped! I was in my happy place!
Then Saturday happened. It was one of the best in a long while. Jesus truly does give rainbows after the rain.
My chemex slow-and-beautifully-smooth coffee maker came in the mail and we enjoyed that and The Word for a few hours in bed. Talk about dreamy. I love, love, love Saturdays at home with my hubby.
We also scored two of the coolest pieces of furniture at an antique store over the weekend. Only $200 together! This was a blessing because we had been searching for bedroom furniture but I didn't want to pay a fortune! I cannot wait to get my hands on the sander and the paint. Yes! I think I'm going to paint the dresser and mirror a distressed cream color and maybe go with a light seafoam color for the other cabinet. Yay for awesome finds and a beautifully fun and lazy weekend!
