Christmas is coming....

I ordered some very stylish labels with our new address on them yesterday and saw these cute ones for Christmas.
You can personalize them for your family....isn't that fun?

And I figured out how to put a widget for the site on my sidebar. I am QUITE the internet guru now!!!

“Unerring wisdom ordained your lot, and selected for you the safest and best condition. Remember this, had any other condition been better for you than the one in which you are, divine love would have put you there. You are placed by God in the most suitable circumstances. Be content with such things as you have, since the Lord has ordered all things for your good.”

All is well here.

We are counting down the days until Joe finishes his time serving FPC Kosciusko and can fully focus on church planting.

Spring is here in full force. We are enjoying a few strawberries from the garden. We had a pair of wrens nest in our workroom and have been able to watch the babies hatch, grow, and finally leave the nest. We are loving this house even more as we realize that we are leaving.

Good reading this morning

I was reading a blog this morning that is the story of a family that adopted 4 siblings from Ethiopia. It is a great story (and a real story) but something that the mom wrote resonated with me this morning.

This particular post was written just before they left to pick up the children. And I liked it because it is where I am as a mama right now.

Jesus, fill me!

Testing, testing

I just got a blackberry and am trying to see if I can use it to blog. Perhaps that would help save my blog from dying due to lack of posting.

Rainy winter day

We are back into the normal schedule today as a trial run before a whole week of normal starting Monday. We certainly did enjoy having Joe home more, even though he didn't really get a vacation. He worked tirelessly on Culpeper things and has really made some progress. I am so thankful to have such a hard working husband! We are just under 50 percent for our support raising so far and are going to Virginia next Friday for a week and a half of visiting churches and meeting people.

I have to also rave about something. I have had the same pair of jeans for several (who knows how many!) years now and they are old! And need replacing badly! About 2 months ago, I went from store to store in Jackson and tried on every pair of jeans I could find but to no avail. It seems that all of the jeans in the stores were just too low waisted. I have a long torso and so low jeans are REALLY low on me. To tell you how desperate I had gotten, I even considered buying some "mom jeans."

But I didn't have to! When we were at Gap earlier this week, I tried on their Essentials style jeans and they worked! They are cut high enough on the waist and still look cute. YAY!
