New Journeys

We are more amazed at God with each passing day and how He knows what we need before we do.

Daniel has been very unhappy with his current job as an apprientice electrician. He simply does not enjoy his work and being union. I don't think we REALLY waited for God on this issue as much as we should have. Lesson learned(I hope)for the both of us. So he applied for a job with our local cable company and after testing and interviews, he was offered the job. Now we are just waiting on a few things to be taken care of. He tried to meet with his current boss, but he never showed up. BLEH> makes Daniel crazy. So, we are almost done with working nights(I am so glad because I miss him at night when he is not here!!!)

The guys are all at ball practice and the girls are playing HSM Sing It on the Wii.

I have to put the spring/summer clothes away they are sitting in the game room on the game table and it makes it very hard to play games that way :o) I think I have enough for both girls(if what I have for Piper fits? You never know. SHe wore a (large for the size) pair of 6 Month capris at moms house the other day!

I was so sad to say that I will not be able to go on a trip with my circle of friends that I go with on a overnight trip in the spring and one just before Christmas. I have to work and several people are already going to be gone the day I needed off and if Missy and I left right after getting the kiddos settled when we got off work, It would still be late when we got there. So I will have to go with them in Dec. It will be ok.

I have taken forever to make this post because I am playing Wii with the girls and have painted fingers and toes on Piper and Gabi is doing hers(will be a mess!) I am caught up on wash and don't have enough to even make a full load(LOVE IT!) so I think I will go play with the girls for a while. Have a great day!

Must Read Blog

I found this blog through another friend I read...

At first, I had a really hard time reading, because it is so sensitive.
But, as I continued to read, I was very inspired.
A TRUE family of God.
I pray for peace for this family.

Take a look for yourself.

Be sure to have tissues handy.
Have a great day.

I forgot about this blog!

Wow, I really forgot that I had created this bolg. I have a LiveJournal that I have been blogging in since 2001 and I think it is really hard for me to think about leaving it, but I think I am going to give this a try to be my main blog. I don't think it will be an everyday update, but at least 2x a week.
I am married to my best friend Daniel for almost 10 years(this summer) We have 4 children, Dawson-9 1/2, Logan 7 1/2, Gabrielle(Gabi)4 1/2, Piper 3(in 2 weeks). We stay busy with Little League, ballet, football. We are very involved in our church. We would be nothing without the grace our Lord has shown us.
I work at a PreSchool and teach 3 year olds. I am the ChildCare Coordinator for our church as well. I only started at the Preschool this year...the girls love it and I only work 3 days a week. It is nice to have a couple of days off in the week since I am so used to being a stay at home mom. I miss it, but I know that I am where God wants me and I have to be obedient(unless I want to be miserable). I make hairbows for girls as a hobby-I enjoy it, but I have found out that I have severe carpal tunnel in my hands and if I do it too often, my hands go numb. Treatment for that may be in the not to far away future. I am learning to sew(again)and I love it. Cooking is fun, but not the cleaning up!!! I like the challenge of feeding my family on a certain budget and seeing what kinds of things I can come up with!
My hearts desire is to be the Christian wife and mother that God desires for me to be. I want to look back and know that I gave it my very best and that I put the important things first and did the work God had at hand for me. It is a work in progress. I am learning as I go. I have come a long way from the young girl I was 10 years ago. God is amazing and with His 'gentle' :o) prodding, I have changed into a woman I hope people are glad to call friend.
So, welcome to my blog. I hope you enjoy me 'Keeping It Real'.
