Last weekend we celebrated the soon to be Brody Lowder. Our sweet friends Tab and Todd are expecting their first baby. We got all dolled and up thought we'd share our outfits of choice.

Keep Your Eye on the Prize:
The two of us, along with a few other friends, just finished a study on the book of Nehemiah. Good stuff! We got so much out of this book that we never expected. One thing that stood out to us all was Nehemiah's response to distractions in chapter 6. His enemy's aim was to distract him from what God had called him to do. Attempting to lure him away they sent repeated requests for him to come to them. Nehemiah's bold response was this: "I am carrying on a great project and cannot go down. Why should the work stop while I leave it and go down to you?"
We love how he does not seem to even be tempted to waver in his calling. We find that it is very easy to get distracted from the things God has placed in front of us to do. The enemy is constantly trying to lure our attention away so that we do not fulfill what God has given us to do. Instead we need to remember Nehemiah's bold response and not falter. When we stand firm and focused, God can do great things through us.
