Im home sick again for the second day in a row. Im bored! I feel like a bum! It's not the kind of sick where I can get up and be productive. At least I got a good night's sleep...thanks to good ole' NYQUIL!

My husband has been wonderful. He picked up my prescription and the fulfilled the craving I had for Jamba Juice. What a man! He even did the laundry and cleaned the kitchen. I should be sick more often!

On the other hand, it's so hard to be out of school. There's so much I know needs to get done and hate leaving it to someone else. I guess it's a good thing...I gotta let go every now and then!

Enough Said

I read this verse in my devotions today:

"Enjoy what you have rather than desiring what you don't have. Just dreaming about nice things is meaningless; like chasing after the wind." Ecclesiastes:s 6:9

After all our recent talk about a car, a house someday, and new jobs, JP and I are using this verse to be thankful for the big and little we have now. We cannot see what God's plan or purpose is in the future, but we know God's plan for NOW!

keep it up

JP and I are still in constant prayer for our jobs. I have such a hard time with JP working 13 hour days. I pity him being so worn out when he comes home. And my frustration with some situations surrounding my current position, probably doesn't help. I can't help but beg with God to open doors. I know that patience is most important next to trust. Today at church there was a faith promise pledge opportunity, which we hadn't thought of, but I admired how I toiled over an amount in my head all service, and when the time came, JP looked and me and being on the same page, we made a pledge. I love how we both have learned to look to God and to do more than share finances, bills, and hopes, but a foundation on Christ. Months ago there would have been much hesitation to put forth a faith promise pledge, and thanks to where God has taken us, and with such a willing-hearted mate, there was no hesitation this time. I know God has provided, erased bill balances, made a way, and I continue to trust that there is so much more he has in store! I pray that he multiplies our meager but sincere financial pledge.

Would you Rather?

Would you rather
be able to stop time while you slept, or
never need to do laundry?

Would you rather
hit every red light for the rest of your life, or
always be wrong?

Would You Rather... Live forever as a
13-year-old or…
