Valentine's Day and Reset

This week has been a full one. It's had some wonderful moments and some important but tough ones. I've struggled this week with anxiety over deciding what to do about my arm which is hurting again and if I've made the right decision once it was made. I feel ridiculous to be this stressed out over such a simple decision, but that stress is keeping me at the feet of Jesus. 

Valentine's day, we had a party at our house. My sister Rebekkah made the most amazing chocolate-dipped strawberries. We had pizza and watched Overcomer. It was some great family time, lots of good food, and the movie was of course wonderful.

This last Sunday, I was stressed and having a bad attitude about several things. For those who don't know me in person, or have been fortunate as to not be present when I get in one of these moods, I get mad at myself when I can't focus on what I know is true and start feeling like the worst Christian the globe. My parents were awesome and took me out for lunch after church. We talked a lot, got the root of the issue. It was like hitting the reset button. I felt so much better and could deal with it. 
I was going to take some photos of the garden, which I've been working a lot this week. However, it is cold and raining outside today as it was yesterday. So, no photos. However, working in the garden feels so good. We have a lot of seeds started in our new greenhouse (thank you Dad) and three garden beds that are almost ready for planting the early spring crops. 

I was excited to dive into this Christian sci-fi book but the theology in it was odd. I didn't hate the book, but I didn't love it either.

This was a very sweet Christmas story. This series is meant for kids, but I love relaxing with it from time to time. 

This has been on my to-read list for a while. It was a wonderful story of hope and redemption. 

I read the first book last week. I enjoyed diving into this story while I have Kindle Unlimited.
