No more Julie & Brandi Monday......

Tonight is suppose to be Julie & Brandi Monday. But they graduated last week so it's just Monday!

1 Peter 4:9 :Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling.

So today I am Mrs Grumpy pants (Is there such a thing as righteous grumpiness) because I miss my Halei(what Pearson calls Julie) & 'Brendi' (Pearson's rendition of Brandi's name). All the fun and laughter and joy they brought to this house every week. Even when we had to get Biblical their hearts are so open to the word! Julie will be back from Graham to work in town for a while but Brandi is off into the world!

Titus 2:4-5: Then they can train the younger women to love their husbands and children, 5to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God.
For years I disobeyed the command thinking I didn't have anything to give. That I still needed to grow....that was an excuse. The last 3-4 years have proven have been so fruitful and so blessed by close friendships with Sarah, Halei, Julie & Brandi. But let me tell you I was the one missing out on the friendship and the love that these inter-generational relations provide! Oh and I was sinning yes...sinning because I was not obey God's command and pouring into the lives of others! It's amazing when you obey how generous God is and how he returns the years the locust have eaten.

It's hard trying to explain the kids that Julie and Brandi are not coming on Monday's anymore and that Brandi will not be coming at all (hopefully she'll pop by when she is in town!). And that Julies days are numbered here in College Station. Of course sweet Peyton's main concern is will Brandi remember my name?

Proverbs 18:24A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.

We love you gals, Monday will never be the same!

Brandi came to our house on Tuesdays. We sure do miss her. We'll for sure stay friends, and we're ready to make new ones!

Oh how I love college sweet Nellie just left, my Mondays will never be the same again...but God is faithful in bringing new girls for us to train and learn from.

My Monday wasn't the same either! I miss Monday's at the McVay's! Your family has been such a blessing to my life. Of course I will pop in when I'm in could I not? and tell sweet Peyton I will ALWAYS remember her name!

Miss y'all!
