Ezra Six: The King’s Decree

Ezra

If you’ve been reading along, you probably have a good guess for what comes next.

If you guessed King Darius read the letter sent to him and took the Israelites advice, you’d be correct!

Need to catch up? Check out the chapter here.

Upon reading the letter, he had the archives pulled, and just as the Israelites said, King Cyrus authorized the temple construction many years earlier.

Isn’t this one of those, “We told you so moments!?” smile

But we aren’t surprised, are we?

Once the king confirmed what had happened, he decreed the continuation of construction.

Then he goes about ten thousand steps further.

Not only does he allow the Israelites to continue, but also orders the governor to assist in temple completion and fund it.

He even goes further by declaring the governor was to make sure the Israelites had all the animals, oil, salt, and whatever else they needed in order to sacrifice to God.

Real life.

The chapter ends with the temple dedication and celebration of the Passover, completely, properly and worshipfully.

So let’s talk about some things that stand out.

A common recurring theme.
You may have noticed, but just about every post on this book points back to God’s provision and his ability to make a way when things seemed hopeless.

I sound like a broken record, but there’s nothing broken about this truth.

Honestly, I find it to be a beautiful reminder over an over of God’s continuous grace, love, and immense patience with his people.

I don’t know about you, but I sometimes need this daily reassurance!

He knows it. I like to think that’s why the entire Bible is full of so very many reminders of his provision.

Today’s chapter is no different- and your life isn’t either!

God loves you deeply and wants to guide you into a meaningful relationship with him.

I realize this may sound a little weird to some, but our entire purpose in this life is to love God with all we are, and then to love others.

If our heart desires it, He will provision it, just like he did for the Israelites.

Not only that, but watch out because he may do it in abundance!

Ask Him to open your eyes for the opportunities you have to love Him and others. Chances are you will begin to see your family, coworkers, friends, and neighbors in a different light.

Just as God blessed the Israelites beyond their wildest dreams (I’m sort of thinking they just expected to get the go ahead to resume. Not that the king was going to roll out the red carpet and then some), He is able to do the same in our lives too. 

That doesn’t mean untold riches or never getting wrinkles (haha). It means a meaningful and purposeful life in Him.

One able to heal marriages and friendships.

One able to move mountains of those dead dreams and make streams in the desert of hardened hearts.

The one who calls us is faithful, and he will do it.

So often we are afraid to seek him or ask for his help because we are afraid he won’t do it.

We are content to stay put like the Israelites were a couple chapters earlier.

However, that’s where the whole premise of faith steps in. How many times did Jesus tell his followers to believe? Many. Seemingly countless!

Commit to the Lord all you do, and your plans will succeed. He can equip and empower us to do all things, and it’s about darn time we realize it and take a stand for his truth.

This book is a beautiful reminder of God’s continuous care, verse after verse after verse.

It wasn’t always a walk in the park, and the Israelites weren’t always model students, but God made a way.

Let’s not sit on the sidelines like the years that went by for the Israelites. 


Let’s be active participants in our relationship with Christ, trusting he is able to move the hearts of the King Darius’ in our lives- and not only that, but also stir a heart change with us, too!

It’s not about us, it’s about Him. Are you in?

Thursday Things 23 Oct 14

1. I’m pretty sure I’m incredibly annoying at football games.

Last year I determined it was highly probable I was annoying.

This year I determined it is most definitely true.

I’m most definitely annoying at football games.

Although rarely overly boisterous, I often interject commentary and thoughts on the plays, flags, players, and well, anything else.

It’s annoying. I want to tell myself to shut up.

In fact, 99% of the time, I’m talking out loud to myself, as my dear die-hard football fan husband not only watches the game alongside me, but also listens to it on the radio (yeah I know- it makes no sense to me either).

I’m much more conscious of my commentary, and am trying to dial it down a bit. However, I make no promises.

So to those in the rows behind and ahead of me: please ignore and forgive me. What can I say, I love college football.

2. I want to live inside pumpkin spice lattes.

I know.

So typical.

The minute the clock hits October we’re all about lattes and scarves and everything harvest-y.

But seriously.

There’s a reason.

It’s because all those things are lovely.

So please let me guzzle my pumpkin flavored everything in peace. Click here for a delicious cleaned up version of our beloved latte.

You’re welcome.

3. Can we please freak out over the fact that next week is November!?

I feel like much of my recent adult life has been a whirlwind, especially after Layla was born.

But seriously.

Where the heck did October go!?

I relish these fall months and I can’t believe how quickly they are slipping through my fingers.

4. Peanuts in your coke
Soooo apparently this is a thing.

An actual thing.

Like a whole craze I missed.

Please please tell me you have no idea what this means.

Because seriously- it’s NOT a thing. At least in my book.

Long story short, my sweet country boy Will informed me putting peanuts in your coke (regular old coke NOT diet) was a thing “back in the day.”

So I called my parents and sure enough, it was a thing.

So tonight I am going to be schooled on the art of “countrified” soft drinks.

Truth.

5. I do NOT hate puppies and babies
Oy.

So about a month and a half ago, I scheduled a meeting with our friends from the north.

The meeting was set for Tuesday, the 14th. They accepted, made no comment about it, and we were good to go.

Except....

Do you know what last Monday was in Canada?

Thanksgiving.

Thanks-flipping-giving.

I had these guys travel to Oklahoma on their Thanksgiving holiday.

What a selfish American jerk!

I obviously had no idea (because Duh! Everyone knows Thanksgiving is in November) and completely forgot theirs was in October.

Aaaand Canadians are so nice that of course they didn’t even say something.

So yeah. I hate sunshine and flowers. Except not. I’m sure those guys may say otherwise though!

Can you believe I did that!?

I feel like I should send them a cornucopia as like a peace offering or something. Thoughts?

WIOW: Fall Football Fitness Goal Follow-updates

Wiow

That title is a mouthful!

Tuesday I bared my bio screenings, and today’s another dose of truth! Today we’re following up with my Fall Fitness Goals! 

You didn’t think I was going to let myself off the hook, did you? smile

About a month ago, I established a few goals I wanted to stick to during football season- the time of seven layer dip and football cupcakes.

And everything pumpkin.

I thought it’d be a good idea to check in and see how things are going now that football season is well underway.

Truth be told, the last couple weeks have been a bit of a challenge for eating and exercising, as we were in Texas for both of them, but nonetheless I did manage to still sneak some workouts in and eat as best I could.

Enough chatter- let’s look at those goals!


Stay consistent with my usual 5 workouts per week, but also add in 2-3 cardio sessions of 20-30 minutes each depending on my work schedule.

So far, this has been going daily well.

Three weeks ago we went to Dallas for the OU-TCU game, and two weeks ago we were in Dallas again for OU-Texas weekend.

That meant I had to modify my workouts.

A few years ago I would have stressed out and found a way to pound hours on the hotel gym treadmill, but now I keep things functional and realistic.
Did I log those extra cardio sessions last weekend?

Nope.

But I did workout all three days, which I consider a success.

Aside from those two weekends, I’ve been consistent with my cardio and I’m pretty proud, if I do say so myself.

I’m not a cardio girl, so this is a pretty big deal!

Keep diet, calories, & macros in check

Check, check, and check.

For the most part, I’m crushing my diet. That excites me. I feel like diet is the crux of my success or failure, so keeping on track makes me happy.

I’ve been on point with my goals, and when I don’t have healthy options (hello Texas state fair!), I either bring along something or do my best.

I’m snacking and planning ahead. Allowing indulgences helps make things so much easier, too.

Allow flex calories throughout the week.

This is most definitely one of the reasons I’ve been able to keep on point with my eating goals.

Giving myself the flexibility to have a specific set aside amount of “flex” calories allows me to indulge a little here and there without food guilt or feeling like I have blown it.

It helps my outlook and also, as counterintuitive as it may sound, keeps me on track.

Eat fair food and not feel guilty

Definitely did this.

I had a vegan Dole whip cone, French fries, peanut m&ms, a piece of fried mac and cheese, and pizza for dinner that night.

So yeah.

Definitely lived it up and didn’t feel bad at all.

Not one iota.


Incorporate at least two strolls around the block each week.

So here’s where I’ve lacked. I’ve definitely done more walking with all this beautiful weather, but have not been consistent about evening strolls like I had hoped.

This is definitely an area for improvement.

Can we talk about why the first hour after arriving home from work is always complete madness!?

My drive is a little hairy and then from the time I get home it feels a bit like chaos all the way until 30 minutes after dinner when everything is finally done, put away, and prepped for the morning ahead.

Anyway, by the time I get all my usual “night stuff” done, I’m spent. Plus we go to bed so early that walking doesn’t really appeal to Will after a long day with such a short night together at home.

I may just have to do one quick lap myself while dinner cooks, or be extra sweet so Will comes along with me. smile

That’s the update on my fall football fitness goals. I need to work on walking, and stay on track with everything else.

Did you make any goals this fall? Do you find it harder to stay on track this time of year?

At the Doc w/B-Love: A Peek at My Recent Blood Work

Alright girls, I’m getting personal today.

I’m inviting you to take a peek at my recent blood test results.

It doesn’t get much more personal than that!

I had a health screening last week.

Full disclosure- it’s been years, many years since I’ve done this.

Maybe even before we moved back? I have no idea.

As someone who claims to live a healthy lifestyle, I was embarrassingly overdue.

Probably ought to do this more than once a decade, eh?

Anyway, I was pretty pumped to see my results.

I claim to be healthy, but it was encouraging to actually see cold, hard facts.

I still have work to do (you’ll see my cholesterol is a little higher than I’d like it to be), but at least I have a baseline to compare against next year when I do this.

Notice I didn’t say next decade. Haha

Oh, and as an aside, can we please talk about the fact that Will and I got ours done on the same day?

I say I’m not competitive, but I sure did want us to whip out our papers and compare.

So sad.

But true.

Will’s results were a little sobering, but not surprising. The good news is that the reality of seeing them in black and white motivated him to make a few healthy changes.

So now let’s get to the nitty gritty. My results.

The numbers in the first column are the “desirable” numbers, the middle is “borderline risk,” and the last is “elevated risk,” with my results written on the end.

Here’s a rundown of some of the highlights, as well as some lovely personal commentary on how I think I can improve or stay strong.
Biometrics

With the exception of total cholesterol, I was in the “desirable” range for every single element.

I completely attribute that to exercise and my primarily vegetarian diet. I’m a firm believer both these elements were the reason I had such good results.

Blood pressure was good, but Will can attest that can fluctuate on a given day. I’m a woman after all. wink

My “good” cholesterol was through the roof, and my bad was good too, however my overall composite cholesterol was 216, with the desirable range being below 200.

I was kind of bummed to see it was a little higher than desired. I certainly don’t feel as though I’m at risk by these numbers by any stretch, however I do want to be a little more cognizant about the cholesterol I eat and where it’s coming from.

I already do a pretty good job about it, however high cholesterol runs in the family and now that I’m old over 30, it’s time to keep an eye on it.

I was surprised by my blood glucose and it answers why I have to eat before I workout these days.

I used to be able to get up and hit it hard on a completely empty stomach, but over the last year I’ve had to have just a little something or I’ll feel faint. Ha, well there we go!

As for other things, I was really disappointed in my body fat level.

Having a desk job and literally sitting for close to ten hours a day really takes a toll on a body, and getting older hasn’t helped either.

I was in the desirable range, but I really felt like it should be lower than it was. It is difficult to find ways to do more than I already do, so I may just have to find creative ways to get up during the day and move around a little more.

So yeah. We just got pretty personal. You went to the doctor with me. smile

There you have it, friends! Check in tomorrow for a goal review!

The One with Beautiful Weather & Look Ahead

Praise the Lord for the beautiful weather this weekend!

I think it’s the only thing that salvaged our Saturday.

Girls, those Sooners…

We’ll get to that soon enough. Let’s start with Friday. 

Will and I had a fancy date to Taco Mayo (they have a salad I like) and the grocery store Friday night. I hadn’t been since the week before OU-Texas, so our cupboards were pretty bare!

After our exciting night out, we came home and I made a batch of homemade granola.

Between the vegetarianism, homemade laundry soap, and now granola making I’m pretty sure any day now Will expects me to start wearing socks with sandals and living on the land. Ha!

Granola!

Anyway, the granola? It’s killing me. Recipe to come soon.

I hit the gym early Saturday. While I’ve worked out at home, I hadn’t stepped foot in the gym for 13 days! I’m pretty sure that’s my longest record.

It felt good to be back, and my legs are suffering for it (in a good way).
OU-K state18 Oct 14All smiles before the loss

The game consumed most of Saturday.

It was an 11:00 kickoff and close the whole time.

That meant we, along with 90,000 others, stayed in our seats until the last few minutes.

They break our hearts every time.

As someone that has invested lots of time, money, donations, and trips to support them, it sure is a bummer when they stink it up.

We usually take a shuttle back to our car, but we decided instead to enjoy the beautiful day and walk back.

I was thankful we walked. Not only was the weather gorgeous but the exercise was nice too.

Poor Will, he bleeds Crimson and lives for this time of year. He was super disappointed and frustrated by the loss. We walked with thousands of others, mostly in silence, and tried to enjoy the fresh air and quiet.

Afterward, we seized the beautiful day by running a couple errands and washing the car.

I also saw my mom and Layla, always a highlight.

Yesterday we got up early and went to the sunrise service, and they aren’t lying about that! The sun really was rising as we were walking in. Haha

After church I hit the gym and did some cardio and upper body work. I also watched the Colts game with Will.

I did my usual food prep, laundry, took a couple laps around the neighborhood, and even managed to sneak some time in with P and Layla and also chatted with a friend!

All in all a good weekend, full of absolutely gorgeous weather.

This is my short week, and I sure am thankful! My house desperately needs to be scoured.

I suppose I’m getting a little ahead of myself, though. We haven’t even talked about the fun coming up this week!

Here’s a look at what’s ahead this week:

-A dive into my recent blood test results
-Checking in on fall goals
-Thursday things
-Ezra six

Hope you had a good weekend.

Here’s to a Monday that goes fast (😊). Check in tomorrow!

Ezra Five: Building Resumes (via a little kick in the pants)

Ezra

We made it to Friday and chapter five. Woo hoo!

Haven’t read the chapter? Check out out here.

Well I have good news and bad news.

The good news is that after years of cessation, temple construction resumes!

Alright! Let’s celebrate!

Wellll, not so fast.

We will get to the bad news in a minute, but let’s talk a little about the whole stop work.

Several years passed from the time when the Israelites had to stop work and the 2nd year of Darius when work resumes (haven’t gotten there in our study yet- but sit tight! 😊).

So what was going on!?

Not much.

The Israelites had strong leaders at the beginning of building, but when the stops were put on, they seemingly gave up.

It wasn’t until the prophets Haggai and Zechariah breathed fresh life and prophecy on the people.

Zerubabel rose up as a mighty leader and once again and got to work. The prophets came alongside them and helped them and were with them.

They collectively worked together to accomplish the task at hand.

I love this picture!

The bad news is that we’re still waiting on “official” approval for them to do so.

I use official in quotes because God mandated it, but as you recall in chapter 4, the government ordered a stop to all work.

Today’s chapter also includes more pushback, this time from the governor. Thankfully the Lord continued to make provisions and building continued while the government did some more investigating.

In addition to everything we discussed above, chapter 5 also includes a letter to King Darius outlining Cyrus’s approval for the Israelites to return home and rebuild the temple years earlier.

Ah- but we get yet another teaser!

The chapter ends with the governor’s letter and a petition for him to search Babylonian archives to confirm whether Cyrus actually declared the rebuilding of the temple.

So still no “official” go ahead to resume.

That’s where we leave off today!

What a recap! So much to cover.

Let’s talk about some takeaways.

1. The Lord raises up leaders to accomplish his work

I’m not sure I’ll ever cease to be amazed over the fact that God equips mere, flawed humans to accomplish kingdom work.

Is this for real!?

Yes.

Without getting into the weeds, the Lord used Haggai and Zechariah to send some pretty clear messages to the Israelites- “Rise up people! Get off your duffs and get to work!”

Okay… Maybe that’s my interpretation, but if you look at the first chapters of both books, God certainly called them to speak action and truth to the people.

It had been years… What were these guys doing!? They needed some tough love and truth.

A good kick in the pants.

When they did, Zerubabel rose up and led the cause alongside the prophets.

If you are willing, God will give you more and more of himself. The Bible says we will find him when we seek him with all our hearts.

Sometimes that means taking an unpopular stance or speaking truth- in love. That’s the key differentiator between a swift kick in the pants and a well-intentioned one full of humility and love. smile

When we humble ourselves and seek him, he can use us to accomplish mighty kingdom work.

I so desire to humble myself and see what he’s capable of doing in my heart as I let him change me. I pray he does this work in you too!

He is faithful to do it! He will use us if we yield to him and obey.

2. God is big enough to make a way

It looked like, once again, the brakes were going to be put on construction. Yet verse five tells us that the eyes of God were on his people and they were able to continue their work.

They were able to continue their work.

If God has placed an opportunity before us, he’s going to be faithful to help us continue our work even in the face of challenges.

My faith continues to grow and stretch, and my thick headed 31-year-old self finally realizes that the one who calls us is faithful and he.will.do.it.

He will. He does. He can.

He made a way for his stubborn people to realign themselves with his desires and continue the work laid before them, and when we seek him, he does the same with us too.

Oh man I love how God loves us. I love how he can reach me in this present time through Bible stories thousands of years old. He is the same then and today. I love that, and I love Him.

I sure hope you’re being blessed by these Ezra studies. We are halfway through, if you can believe it!

Thanks for checking in today. Have a wonderful weekend and I look forward to catching up Monday

Things I’m Loving Thursday: 16 Oct 14

It’s Thursday and I’m ready for Friday.

I know, I know.

I should seize the day and be thankfuk for the day at hand… I agree.

But seriously- Friday.

In honor of “seizing the day,” here are a few things putting a smile on my face.

Pure Protein Chocolate Salted Caramel Bars

TILT

I mentioned my love for their dark chocolate coconut bars a few weeks ago, and the salted caramel bars also make the list.

So so good. These were my go-to snacks when I was surrounded by no healthy options over the weekend.
Ruth’s Chris’ broiled tomatoes

Okay I get it.

When I say Ruth’s Chris, broiled tomatoes probably aren’t the first thing that comes to mind.

I respect that.

But seriously. Broiled tomatoes. Dead.dead.dead.

They somehow caramelize the tops and the skin is super tender. I can’t even take it.

In addition to getting them as part of my dinner (hello vegetable plate!), I also ordered them as a side.

Don’t judge.

I Found You- Anthony Evans
Tilt

I don’t watch The Voice, but if you do you might remember Anthony Evans from season 2.

This guy- he’s got some pipes!

I love this song for a variety of reasons. It also has a great trance feel in several parts which makes is really fun.

This throwback Thursday pic
Brittny Flint-4 yrs old & home from 1st dance recital

So much material here.

I fear I pretty much spent the 80s wearing SPF zero, hence the ultra rosy cheeks.

Oh, and if I could, I would totally still wear that tutu. Ha!

What I find funniest is that I was big into dance classes at that age. I can barely count to eight these days, let alone figure out how to coordinate flowy movement within the numbers. What!?!

Mary Kay Warm Amber
Oh my gosh. I’ve probably mentioned this scent a million times on the blog already (Actually, I have. Ha), but seriously.

This scent.

It’s only $25 and smells expensive and like a dream. I love wearing this scent in the fall.

Do it.

In fact, I’m making an order soon so let me know if you’re interested.

Big Sexy Hair Powder Play
I got this sample like a year ago (and posted about it!) and recently started using it again and forgot how much I love it.

It adds some serious root volume and really gets in there and adds some pow, that’s for sure. I just sprinkle it on my scalp in places I need volume, give it a rub, and am good to go!

The forecast this weekend!
It is going to be absolutely beautiful! I’m so very excited and hope to spend some time outdoors sipping tea and hanging with the people I love most.

TILT

Alright friends, that’s all for now! Anything you care to share?

Check in tomorrow for our Ezra study!

WIOW: Autumn Workout Playlist

Today’s post is all about music.

We already know what a difference it makes in our ability to power through workouts more effectively, so I wanted to share my current workout playlist in hopes it will get you moving like these songs do for me.

I bet most of us would agree music is a very powerful tool. We have songs etched in our minds to recall numerous memories, like what was sung at our wedding, our favorite Christmas tune, or music from our favorite year of school.

Even when it’s in the background, it can get stuck in our head for days on end!

I’ve said it seemingly hundreds of times on here, but I allowed music to play a big role in hardening my heart toward God. With as much as I talk about it, I suppose I ought to devote a post to it one day!

Anyway, these days I’m all about positive and uplifting music. The good news is that there are actually solid options out there that not only do my spiritual heart good, but also helps me keep my ticker strong as I push thorough cardio sessions. smile

For that reason I wanted to offer up my current playlist so you can feel rejuvenated too!

The list is a mix of rock, hip hop, and trance. A little bit of everything for everyone.

Now pick a few, add them to your playlist, and get moving!

Blog Roundup!

Hey guys!

Time to be transparent.

With the long weekend away and a crazy week at work I knew I wouldn’t have time to put together a meaningful post today.

Oh, and obviously I’m using the term meaningful loosely. My Tuesday posts are rarely ever deep and meaningful. smile

The good news is that I’ve rounded up some recent favorite reads from all over the web and am sharing with you in hopes you’ll find them useful too!

Like this post with 9 practical ways to study the bible.

Or these skinny garlic Parmesan fries. Perfect football fare.

These homemade Quest bars. Dead.

Seven beauty uses for vinegar. I already do some and may try some more now, too!

Lessons on loving and losing a pet.

This lentil quinoa chopped salad. Definitely making soon.

The stress cure. 

Cauliflower pizza crust. It tastes better than it sounds, promise.

Beth Moore life catchup (and a devo at the end I thoroughly enjoyed)

Mint chocolate blender ice cream. Yes.

Four tips for getting every last drop from the bottle. You’ll want to read this one.

The difference between toning and building muscle
So yeah, lots of quality information before your very eyes. smile

I’m still catching up on laundry from the weekend and seriously need to get groceries. I know my dear husband would love to use this week as an excuse to Monopoly it up at McDonalds, but I can’t let him clog his arteries every single day this week, you know?

Anyway, that’s all for today. Check in tomorrow for a workout playlist that will keep you upbeat long after your gym session.

OU-Texas 2014 & Look Ahead

Hello hello!

I’m back from Texas and feel like today is a whirlwind and my head is still spinning like the Ferris wheel at the Texas state fair!

Whew. Where to start?

Friday.

We kissed out pups goodbye, thanked out dog sitters, and started down the road early.

This year we went down with friends!

We’ve gone to OU Texas nearly a dozen times, but only a handful have been spent traveling with others.

While I always enjoy a getaway with just Will, it was also fun to have a girl to chat with during the weekend.

In keeping with tradition we stopped by the Bevo Bash in Marietta, OK. I brought my own lunch while the others enjoyed the free Bevo burgers.

We made our way to the big D and checked into our hotel.

We couldn’t get to Texas without a snafu.

There’s always a snafu.

Somehow from the car to the hotel room door I managed to lose our hotel keys.

Who does that!?

I do.

This made me laugh, and P wad spot on. Will did NOT make the same face. Haha

She was right.

In keeping with tradition, we went to Ruth’s Chris for dinner that night.

Ruth's Chris OU-Texas weekend 2014

I got my usual vegetarian plate with spinach, asparagus, and broiled tomatoes...and also added another side of tomatoes.

Real life.

But seriously, they’re so good.

It was M’s birthday, so they have her a yummy desert on the house too!

We called in an early night, watched some TV and went to bed before 10:30.

We’re wild, ya’ll.

Saturday came bright and early. (I prayed we wouldn’t have another bus fiasco like last year, and thankfully we didn’t!)

I managed to get up and do a quick 30 minute workout before getting ready. Woo hoo!

We took the train for an hour into Fair Park and got the day started.

We had a little time before the fair and made good use. smile

Corny dogs

Vegan dole whip. And frizzy hair.
I even managed to find vegan Dole whip to go along with my iced tea (which I somewhat regretted afterward considering how cold it was).

The game was a little nerve wracking, but thankfully the Sooners pulled through.

Hook 'em. Except not.

Afterwards we met up with a couple from our old Life Group for more fair fare. Haha

We left the fair and went back to the hotel lobby restaurant to finish out the TCU-Baylor game. What a nail biter!

We get to play the Bears soon enough. Yikes!

The rest of the night was all about the evening games and thankfully getting to bed at a decent hour. It sounds boring, but it was actually a lot of fun! There were good games on last night which made it even better.

We headed out yesterday morning, and beat most of the rush. We even stopped in for a fried pie near Turner Falls.

Dead. So so good.

Thankfully we made decent time and I was even able to do a couple loads of laundry.

Don’t ask if they’ve been put away…

Now we begin another week, and mine is full of some serious work!

Here’s a look at what’s coming up this week:
