Company Girl Coffee

I'm new to this!! I love reading Rachel Anne's blog so I decided to participate today.

This has been a crazy busy week! We spent the first few days at the beach, our last family vacation before school. Brayden started first grade yesterday. I cannot believe this day is already here! He's already done K4 and K5, but something about first grade...the fact that they have real subjects, real tests, report cards...I was just so emotional that he's finally a big kid! He insisted on wearing a button down shirt, which was too funny. He looked so handsome though. We really like his teacher; I hope that she will be able to keep him busy!

Tonight I'm looking forward to just relaxing at home and catching up on laundry. Tomorrow, my mom is coming for a visit and to keep the boys while Jeffry and I help host a "Dream Party" for the 20-somethings at our church. I am so excited to get together with everyone and see just what God has in store. We are casting vision for our lives and dreaming big dreams!

Sunday will be the first church service that our Stone county church band will be playing. We have been fortunate enough to have musicians from our Gulfport campus come to play for us for the past three years! Talk about dedication!! I'm the worship leader at our church so a lot rests on my shoulders to make things transition smoothly. I'm praying that the anointing will fall and that people will see beyond the musicians on the stage, and just feel the presence of the Holy Spirit in that place! Woo, I'm excited!

Well, that's all I have for today!! Lots of things going on! God is on the move!!


  1. Ahhh, laundry and relaxing. Actually, I can only relax once the laundry is finished! I hope Sunday goes well. My dad is a worship leader, and I'm on a praise team at my church...I know how important smooth transitions are :)

  2. Wow, first day of 1st grade! My daughter will begin 1st grade this year as well, but we homeschool so there is no sending her off! Only to a tutorial I work at! Lucky me! I know that feeling of "real school" my oldest son will start 7th grade this year and it is so amazing and overwhelming! Where does the time go?

  3. Welcome!! I'm so going to be a big crybaby when my daughters go off to school. I was a Pre-K teacher and during graduation we'd all get weepy even though they're not our own kids.

    My husband is a worship leader at our church too. He's looking to go for the music director position once it's open. Glad you're able to have your own band playing now.

    The Dream Party sounds exciting. Hope it goes well.

    Have a great weekend.

  4. Hi Morgan! Glad you linked up for coffee this week. I didn't get my link in until this morning.

    My Braden (BC) starts first grade this month too. He's my middle child. My, how time flies! My oldest is going into 3rd grade. So I have a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grader this year! :)

    My husband also leads worship at our church. He's preaching and playing the piano this week, though we try not to allow that to happen more than once a year. Usually when he's speaking someone else leads worship that week.

    I hope your party went well. Enjoy the rest of your weekend. I'm looking forward to heading out to visit my mom with the kids on Monday. :) One last trip before we settle in for school.


  5. Hi Morgan! So nice to get to know you over "coffee!" Thanks for joining in over a Home Sanctuary.

    Wow, your worship ministry sounds awesome, and I can hear your heart for the Lord through your words on the blog. May the Lord keep blessing you.

    I swallowed a little lump in my throat, thinking about my boy's first day at school. I blinked and he's now going to be a sophomore in HS. He'll always be my baby, but just don't tell him that (even though I know he secretly loves it)

    Have a great week!
