Big News!

Big News...we are moving.... Not across town but to Texas.

AJ has accepted a new job. It was not an easy decision. We will be leaving our friends, family and church. Involved in the decision there were many fears, questions, tears, fasting, praying, searching. It was the toughest decision AJ has ever had to make. Though some may not understand why we made the decision, we are clear this is the right one.

So, I rejoice yet I grieve. I don't know what the future holds but I trust in my God who knows. He shall supply all our needs. I grieve for different reasons that I choose not to go into right now.

So we have 3-4 weeks before we leave. Much to do around the house. Painting, cleaning out, fixing things, etc...I feel like I never stop. But why should this be a problem? Why is it that if I don't get to relax in the evening I get upset? God created me to work. To stay up late and rise before the house. This is good for me. This is a training and teaching time for me. I may get weary, but I will keep my focus on Christ. I will persevere. I will rejoice in the aching back, I will rejoice in going through the next drawer that I have dreaded. I will rejoice!

So the next few weeks will be busy. They will be filled with anticipation yet many times of tears falling down my face. Times when I want all of this to be over, times to remind myself to enjoy this process God has ordained for our family.

I look forward to seeing what God has in store for us! To Him be the glory!!!

Assignment For YOU!!!

It has been awhile since I blogged. I have a lot that has been going on. My grandmother for a month visited, a big garage sale that was a lot of work but a success, and more.

With much going on that I can't speak about just yet, I have had a few rough weeks. Lots of tears and sleepless nights and my mind constantly moving and thinking. Though I know God is control and I have a peace only from our Lord, my heart still is hurting and I feel like crying a lot of times.

Today has been especially rough for me and I need some cheering up. Can you help me?

I would like for YOU to tell me something funny to make me smile. An embarrassing moment, something a kid said to you, your favorite joke, whatever you can think of!

Did you drop your underwear stuck in your sweater in front of an officer?

Did you keep singing when everyone stopped and everyone heard how you were out of tune?

Make me smile, My Friends!
