{Five on Friday // DIY, Basketball, Soccer, Read Across America}

Happy Friday! It's been two weeks since I have touched this space. The Lord was really tugging at me to put aside something in order to spend more time with Him and in the word. So, I slowed down on my blogging and social media scrolling and did just that. It has been so refreshing and something I needed more than I even knew. I'm going to jump back into blogging (and what better way than with a random Five on Friday post?), but will still be intentional about carving out time for God and His word. Here's a bit of what we've been up to lately...

o n e | Our Wednesday night chuch Bible study started a new book a couple of weeks ago. We are studying the book of Hebrews and I am enjoying it so much. I've read Hebrews before, at least my Bible tells me so by the highlights and notes I've made, but I'm seeing it in a whole new way. I've learned so much more that I missed before and it's been awesome! Isn't it amazing how you can read something once and then read it again later down the road and get something totally different out of it? Hebrews ties the old testament history & practices to the life and history of Jesus. Jesus is the fulfillment of the law.

Looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the tjoy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God. 
- Hebrews 12:2 (ESV)

t w o | It has been so rainy and gloomy here lately! I'm quite over it and my soul is crying out for some sunshine. Since we can't really get out and play I've been crafting. I made a few new shirts to wear to Jeep meets and events! And I've made some new earrings. I am loving these faux leather DIY earrings. I can't wait to find more material to make more. 

t h r e e | This weekend we have our end of the season basketball tournament and then basketball is over. We are pretty sad about that. We have really enjoyed watching Mason play basketball and we had such a great team! We can't wait until next season. For now, we will be going straight into soccer. Well, if the rain ever clears up. 

f o u r | This week was read across america week so Mason got to have fun dress up days all week. It's a nice change in pace for our uniform-wearing kiddos! Monday was crazy socks (Fox in Socks), Tuesday was hat day (Cat in the Hat), Wednesday was orange shirt day (Lorax), Thursday was green shirt day (Green Eggs and Ham) and today was crazy hair day (Daisy-Head Mazie). I only took a picture today because it was the first day we weren't blanketed in grey skies and rain. But, today just happened to be Mason's favorite day anyhow. We colored his hair blue!
