Calling ALL prayer warriors!

Hello Friends!
I've missed you all. I know that I have been MIA, but I've been really busy! That seems to be the word of my life lately...BUSY!!!

I need your help! I am winding down on the house process, and Satan is extra busy. With me moving to a brand new city, starting a brand new job, teaching two new preps, driving almost an hour to work back and forth daily, going to Mississippi, and my Mommy coming to visit, then leaving...AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! Seriously, I am at the end of my rapidly fraying rope!

I need your prayers; specifically for focus, strength, a positive attutide, the spirit of a finisher, for God to multiply my time, still for the blessing of the house, things are happening on the 25th, and just for my overall sanity!

There are times when I feel like I am on a rollercoaster, and just feel so defeated, but I know that is the, I need your prayers! Here are some pics of the house for you guys! Thank you in advance for your prayers!

One Step Closer...

Well, I'm finally living in my Houston apartment, and my house will be completed Wednesday! My Dad and I went to see it Saturday after the big move, and needless to say, I think we were both overwhelmed! It is beautiful! I am so excited! The floors, the colors I chose, the backyard...everything about it was breathtaking!

I still solicit your prayers as the final inspection will be complete in the next couple of weeks, and I will begin the closing process. If you'd like to pray specifically, please pray for the Lord's blessing over the closing process, and that He would continued to be glorified in this process, and that I would not have to pay a down payment...hey...while I'm asking, I may as well be real!!

I'm a Houstonian now!!! AND, apparently, I brought the hurricane..yes, we have been under a Hurricane watch for a few days, and tomorrow, several companies will be closed! You know, it really brings clarity to things when you drive down the highway and see a sign that reads, "fill your gas tanks, the hurricane is coming." Yep...true!!!

Looking back over this summer, it was definitely busy, but I had a lot of fun and met a lot of cool people while developing some friendships!!

Last week I attending Mary Kay Seminar! It was AWESOME!!! I got so much, and I know that there may be people out there that really don't know what our company is all about, but trust me when I tell you that we are SOOOO much more than lipstick!

Say a prayer for the Houston area....ask for our protection through the storm! ~J
