Although I am not sold on needing the new iPhone, I do like the new software update. All the updates to iMessages have been really fun. I guess that’s the total nerd in me. Ian and I spent like an hour after Cove went to sleep just texting each other back and forth, sending gifs, heart beats, drawings, etc. I am also totally grateful for the updates to Maps. Well, to be honest, I never used Maps before because of all the glitches, so now I probably will.
This was a verse I really needed to dwell on this week, “So also you have sorrow now, but I will see you again, and your hearts will rejoice, and no one will take your joy from you.” (John 16:22). It can be so easy to let the things of life steal our joy, and make us feel like the end of the world has come when bad things happen. If our treasures and joys are with Jesus, nothing can take that away. It’s important to not let our anxieties and worries take our focus off what is important.
Fall is upon us. This week actually! Because the season is so busy for our family this year, we decided to take the weekend to catch up on to-do list around the house and have some much needed rest. It was so nice. And although it may have been too hot to cook soup, I made this Chicken Enchilada Soup. Ian loved it and we are definitely going to make it again this fall. Top it off with a lot of lime La Croix and it was a perfect meal for a rainy Sunday.
