I wait.

Do you ever feel like you are always waiting on things? I know that I do. Right now especially! It seems like I am always waiting on things.

Waiting on Thanksgiving break! Haha

Waiting on direction from God and a green light to do what I have wanted to do for awhile.

Waiting on Christmas

Waiting for Spring Break.

Waiting until it is 100 days away from my wedding so that I can start counting down.

Waiting for Britt to graduate from school.

Waiting to get MARRIED!

Waiting to move into OUR apartment.

It seems like it is all I have been doing. I try to not let it consume my thoughts. I try to be patient and wait with a trusting and patient heart. I KNOW that is what I SHOULD do but you probably also know that these things are much easier said than done.

I’ve been singing a line from this song in my head over and over…

“I’m Waiting, I’m waiting on you Lord and I am peaceful. I’m waiting on you Lord though it’s not easy but patiently I will wait.”

Life Happenings...

Thought I would update you on "life" right now and a few of the highlights.
The Lord blessed my family with a hot tub. Someone gave it to us. It is pretty cool because I know that my dad has wanted one for soooo long and it was awesome to see God provide. We are all really enjoying it!

Nice Britt. :p

I got my hair cut and highlighted. I said that I was not going to color it but I did. My hair is naturally a light shade of blonde but the sun plays a key role in that. During the summer it looks great, but as the fall and winter come my roots start getting really dark due to a lack of sun. So, I decided to highlight it. I just don't like how my roots look so dark, I think it looks fake so now it is a shade lighter and I really love it! The cut was pretty much just a trim, but a much needed one at that. I love getting my hair done! It is refreshing!

Life is CRAZY! Here is a small glimpse of my schedule. You can see that there are very few days without something on there. Of course Monday-Friday I have work so everything on my calender is in addition to that. It is crazy but time is going quickly which is good!

I am happy that it is Wednesday. I love Wednesday. I know that once this work day is over and done with I Will be over half way done with the work week. Also, Wednesday is Date Night which is always something to look forward too.

I guess that it the most exciting news as of late. I'm just moving along in life. Hope that you all have had a good week so far and hope you have a Happy (Half Week) Wednesday! ;)

Think on these things...

Do you ever have so many thoughts and emotions swirling around in your head at one time that you don’t even know how to express what you are feeling.

Well, that was me this weekend. I seriously felt like I was going to explode and I felt like I needed to and wanted to talk but I didn’t know how.

Thinking back though, even though it was an emotionally tiring weekend I should not have had to depressed attitude that I did. I don’t know what my problem was. Normally when I am having a difficult time I am able to speak truth to myself. This is not who I am, I can do all things through Christ, I am not my own, His strength is made perfect in my weakness, etc…. So I guess I do know what my problem was this weekend. I was not speaking truth to my soul. I should have. I was wrong in not doing that.

God is faithful though. He works through people to minister to me and to help draw me back to Him. My mom did that last night. Britt continually does that as well. Britt reminded me last night of Philippians 4:6-8 “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things.”

I need to fill my mind with what things are true, honorable, right, pure, lovely and of good repute. I was not doing that this weekend, but I am purposing to start doing it today.
