Happy Weekend!

Happy weekend, friend! What will your weekend hold? I'm pretty happy with what, or rather who, I have held already this weekend... baby Kaden!

Mom, Tiff, Lilly, and Kaden came to spend the afternoon, and it was simply lovely. Time with those women blesses me so much, and time with those babies makes my soul smile. Of course, our afternoon was too short, but then it always feels that way.

I'm looking forward to the rest of this weekend...
Hopefully, if the weather holds, Neal and I will check out Renegade in Wicker Park, a craft fair of handmade goods, so fun!
Otherwise, we have a busy weekend with church, as we prepare to launch our new location of Harvest Bible Chapel, Chicago North.

The new location will be in Roscoe Village, a much more residential area with families than our current location in Wicker Park. We had a leadership team meeting tonight, and after planning and prayer with the team, Neal and I rode our Vespa up to check out the new digs. The view from the Vespa was home after beautiful home and lots of cute restaurants. We'll be excited to explore our new church neighborhood, and even more excited to see this part of the city reached with the Gospel. If you're in Roscoe Village in the next few days and you see people out with sidewalk chalk, balloons, and coffee inviting people to church, well, that's probably us.

I hope your weekend is lovely, friend! Neal and I are just getting used to this delicious feeling of a pure, unadulterated weekend for the first time in 3 years... (we are both officially done with school for now!) It feels so good.
