Lots of pictures coming up! Good news also: Andrew has an interview today at 4pm with Enterprise to be a Management Trainee! We’re excited about the opportunity. Please pray for God’s will to be done in our lives in whatever way he wishes and for our praise not to cease no matter the circumstances.

A few weekends ago we went to Linda’s 50th birthday party, which was a blast. It really was a great time of bonding with the family. We also went fishing 2 weekends ago and actually caught something! We had a fun time. Andrew & I spent most of our time catching little fish, because they would bite quicker and we like to catch things 😀  Andrew has his **BLING BLING** now. He got his Aggie ring last Friday. Whoop!   Take a looksie:

where did we leave off….It’s been a while of updating the blogster. So here we go!

Andrew graduates in a month from today! Whoo Hoo! He’s done an OUTSTANDING job at keeping up with school work. I’m so proud of him for his discipline and determination.  So we’re gearing up for change. I can’t wait.  I know we’ll still be busy at times, but I’m really looking forward to being able to have my playmate around without studies 😀

I have been working with my sister and Mom on wedding planning stuff, which is fun to be a part of.  I sewed a seat cushion for my chair at work that just makes me happy. The fabric is so fun.  I also am eager to do more spring cleaning.  It’s funny how when it becomes sunny I just want to rearrange, declutter, give away, and the like.  It’s like a new coat of paint or something.  New, shiny, fresh feeling.  Yay springtime!

Easter was fun. We went fishing AND caught fish AND ate them for dinner that night.  Andrew was like a little kid at Christmas. He loves fishing. He had me set out my clothes the night before and get everything together.  It was so fun watching him totally enjoy himself. We had a good time fishing together.  We enjoyed a sweet Good Friday too.  We ate supper with a large group of people and then went to church for a communion/worship/baptism service.  I love hearing the testimonies children and adults give about why they are being baptized.  And having everyone gathered outside to watch just makes us feel like family.  Praise God for changed lives! Easter Sunday we were blessed to spend with Neva and James (our marriage counselors), Fallon and Steve Swindell and Joseph and Courtney Patty. We had an AWESOME lunch!  It was a long, restful, and blessed weekend in remembering our Savior and celebrating his victory over death! Whoo hoo!

Pray for Andrew & I as we’ve both had bad stomach acid reflux/sour stomachs for the last week or so.  It’s distracting for Andrew as he studies and it’s making me wean off of coffee for a bit 😦  Oh well, it’s probably really good for me to break away for a while anyways.

Andrew’s dunking his Aggie Ring this weekend on Friday night! whoop! And Dani and I are making an awesome dessert:  Chocolate Berry Cheesecake.  Hope it tastes as good as it looks.

 

God sees the small things April 8, 2009

I’ve been feeling so weighted. I guess that’s the word to use.  There have been many things swirling around in my head, about my job, about Andrew’s job situation, about where we’ll be at in a few months, which homegroup we need to be apart of, etc.  There’s a lot to pray over which makes me feel weighted.  Not that these things are necessarily burdensome all the time, but my constant battle to trust in God’s loving plans for us is what makes me feel burdened.  When I’m not fully trusting and relying my heart on him.

That being said, thoughts of if my job will be my job in the future and how well I’m performing my job have been points of stress and tension for me.  I’m learning to work out Colosians 3 by working as unto the Lord with everything that I do.  I know I need not fear losing my job.  Like I said, it’s a battle.  I want to be at rest and at peace knowing that I need to give my best effort as unto the Lord and then see what happens, but not fear the WHAT IFs.

But given this knowledge, you could understand my panic today when I lost some important documents. I went back and forth looking.  During my frustration and bewilderment, I prayed “Lord I don’t know if you want me to not have this job or what. Or if you’re working it so that I don’t have this job. But I need your help. I need to find those papers. Please help me find them. Please help me. I need your help.”  My last place to look was at Starbucks and as I pulled up to the store, there was a small piece of paper that looked exactly like the ones I was looking for! I jolted out to see that it was the lost paper! I only needed one more now…so I looked over to see if the wind had blown the paper further away. Sure enough the other one was sitting in the grass! PRAISE GOD! I started to cry.  I said said thank you Lord. Thank you for caring. Thank you for helping me. You are so kind. You are so sweet Lord.  Thank you. Man, he cares about the small things!
