For everything, with prayer and supplication...

I've sat down to start this post on several occasions, but as you can see, I haven't been successful in finishing it. If I had to guess why, I'd guess it's because I have so much anxiety right now. Where am I going to work? What will having a mortgage look like? Will I complete the process of the house? It's all very overwhelming, and this is kind of a new thing for me.

I was talking to Malitta the other day, and we had to laugh at how God handles me. Her exact statement was, "it will work out, you will get a job, you know God just waits until the last minute with you. It's like you are on death row, and the first two switches have been pulled, and they're about to pull the third, then BAM, you got a job...just in the nick of time!" Well, thanks Mal...I appreciate the words of encouragement.

I wouldn't be this anxious if I didn't have a closing approaching in a very short time, but don't get me wrong. I KNOW whom I serve, and I know that God, in His infinite wisdom has everything all planned out, in the most beautiful, well thought out symphony. More beautiful than I could ever imagine. I just hate that my human flesh and tendency is to worry, and fret. It makes me sad that I struggle daily, sometimes minute-by-minute with putting it all in His hands. I so want to do better. One thing I've learned in this process is that if I weren't a Christian, if I didn't know Jesus as my personal Saviour, I'd have lost my mind about a month ago..FOR REAL!

So, if you're reading, and you'd like to pray, here's what you can pray for specifically.
1. My job situation. I need one...need I say!
2. That everything goes well with the house, and that God would be glorified in this process.
3. My anxiety level, and that I would trust Him more. It makes me sad to even have to type that...

So, thank you sweet friends, people I know, and people I don't...I appreciate it more than you know!

Catching Up!

I know it's been a while since my last post, and that is SO unlike me, but life has been full of activities to keep me busy. I'll try to post as many pics as I can to tease you with.

First of all, two weeks ago I went to Mississippi to watch my cousin Jonathan deliver his Valedictorian speech. We were all so proud, and he spoke so well.

I got to love on my family and Karmen a lot while I was there. She really is the world's cutest baby...that is, until I have my own, but even then, she'll always be special.

I've been really busy looking for a job, and there is a teaching position in Spring Branch ISD that I really want. So, if you think of me, say a prayer...the principal will be back in her office on Monday, so I will call her first thing...I'm on a mission.

The house is coming along beautifully....check it out for yourselves...

I really am so blessed, and I am so excited about this move, and all of the NEW things...this weekend I'm off to my family reunion on my Dad's side. Good times with family, good food, and just hanging out in the country....nothing could be better!
