How He loves

Another amazing sermon!  I love Buckhead Church!!  I love singing at the top of my lungs at the praise music, I love the sermons and I love all the people!  It is such an amazing place and I look forward to Sunday mornings!  I am not sure who gets more excited to go ... the kids or me!

Part 3 of Love, Sex and Dating was fabulous!  I highly recommend you watch it online!  Such a great lesson ... I will probably watch it again tonight when the teenager watches.  He missed it this morning when he skipped Buckhead to attend church with friends!

The song after the service was amazing! My favorite verse of the song says ... "I don't have time to maintain these regrets when I think about the way He loves us so ... "

I have linked it below for you ... though the video is a little weird!

I have so many thoughts after the sermon.  I am so thankful to have such real and tangible words to pass on to my children.  I am so thankful that the oldest is of the age that he can sit and listen to such great lessons from a man he respects.  I have learned so much about love ... or actually what isn't love.  We all have pasts and stories and what we are the day we get married isn't always the person we hoped to be.  My family of origin consisted of a mother who didn't want to get married and be burdened with a baby and an alcoholic who walked out when I was 18 months old.  There are bruises and scars there.     Everybody has them ... the story just changes as to how they got them.  But what I love is that I don't have to be a certain person to be rescued by God.  I can just be me.  At 41 I am the best version of me that I have ever been and I am thankful for finally understanding the true meaning of love.  I am thankful for a living breathing faith that I can walk in each and every day.  I am thankful for an amazing husband who continues to evolve with me.  I am blessed to have three children who are the best parts of me and so much better.  They are kind, loving and simply too great for words!  I am incredibly thankful for the friends I have.  Life is rough.  But my faith, my husband, my children and my friends are the glue that makes it a whole lot better!

Have a great Sunday!
