Sometimes, it is nice to have an entirely unplanned weekend.

It's nice to just relax, attend to the house, and have nowhere to go.

But sometimes, spending the whole weekend at the house with nowhere to go is not my idea of a fun time.
I usually end up feeling more tired and lazy at the end of the weekend than when it started. Most days, I need to leave the house once, even if just to walk around and get my blood flowing to feel more energized.

This weekend, we had no plans except for David's MPRE exam Saturday morning.

Already, by Friday evening, I was wondering what I was going to do with myself all weekend and felt a little bummed out that we had nothing to do. My wonderful loving husband, who loves cozy evenings at home with nothing to do, suggested getting some snacks and going for a drive.

No destination, just driving. (He usually knows what I need)

So we got some snacks, and we went out driving.

We ended up in the neighborhood of one of the families from our church. We drove by their house, and David suggested stopping in. We drove around the block and decided to, indeed, stop.

The family was home and they were just relaxing as well. We had a lovely visit and left about an hour later, completely refreshed by our time in their home and blessed by the conversation. They even prayed for us before we left.

Saturday, I did mostly spend the day at home - I did a few projects but still felt very lazy. That afternoon, I made dinner for some friends who just had a baby and we took it over to them. Another lovely visit and an enjoyable time holding a beautiful newborn.

Once again, on Sunday after church, we were wondering what we were going to do with ourselves and if there was anyone we could have over. We stopped by our neighbors upstairs and invited them to come downstairs and play games with us later. We actually had never had them over before. They came over and we spent a lot of time chatting and eating dessert, and played round after round of Apples to Apples, which went slowly since we kept chatting between hands. All around, we had such a good time together and learned a lot about our neighbors.

SO - now that it is Monday morning and I am back at work,
I just wanted to take a moment to thank God for the divine appointments He gave us over the weekend. We had no plans, but decided to reach out at the spur of the moment to various people and each time, we left blessed & refreshed. Every time we visited with someone, we looked at each other and said, "I'm so glad we decided to do that!"

God knew what we needed to be refreshed & ready to head into another work week.

What are some little blessings from the weekend that you are thanking God for today?
