An Update

Well, I was going through my comment moderation and saw Mrs. B's comment and thought I should do a blog post to answer her question. :) So, Mrs. B, THIS post is for YOU! ;)
Well, currently I am in Missouri and spending time with my sisters! My time with them has been really good. On Tuesday, I had the privildige to go to the Cardinals game with both of them! Can you believe it, it was our first game ever for us three to be at together! Best thing about the game was...THEY WON! GO CARDS!!!! :) We had perfect seats..Mandy got them through her work for her birthday, so we were in box seats and SOO close to the field!Thanks so much Mandy! Only bad part about the game....I was missing a certain someone a LOT...Next time!
Then yesterday Tara, Jason, Mandy, Joel and I all went to some sand volleyball court to play! At first the bugs were horrible so it wasn't as much fun as it could be, but once it got dark the lights turned on and that attracted the bugs to the light! :) We were the only ones there so that was cool!

During the days I've really just been relaxing I guess. :) Cleaned some at Taras today, but other than that I've really just been praying and reading God's Word, seeking His direction and praying for wisdom. I've been encouraged by a lot of scriptures this week also! I'll share some with you guys! :)

Proverbs 2:2-6 "Make your ear attentive to wisdom, Incline your heart to understanding; For if you cry for discernment, Lift your voice for understanding; If you see her as silver and search for her as for hidden treasures; then you will discern the fear of the Lord and discover the knowledge of God. For the Lord gives wisdom; from His mouth come knowledge and understanding."

James 1:5 "But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him."

James 3:13-18 "Who among you is wise and understanding? Let him show by his good behavior his deeds in the gentleness of wisdom. But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your heart, do not be arrogant and so lie against the truth. This wisdom is not that which comes down from above, but is earthly, natural, demonic. For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there is disorder and every evil thing. But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, reasonable, full of mercy and good fruits, unwavering, without hypocrisy. And the seed whose fruit is righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace."

then just two more..... James 1:2-4 "Consider it all JOY, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing."

James 1:12 "BLESSED is a man who perseveres under trial; for once he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him"

THAT is encouraging!! We all go through things, big or small, God is in control and as hard as it may be we need to take joy in it. I guess when I think of that first verse I relate it to running...lately I've been running and it's hard to have a lot of endurance. You want to start out fast and then it's hard to go very far because you become weary...but with trials in our lives, God is using that to produce endurance in keep us going! It's weird to think like that but the more we are going through, the more our faith is tested, in the long run we will have an endurance like no other and will be able to withstand anything...things we think now that there is NO WAY we could go through that, but one day, with God preparing us... "getting us in shape" we can! :) Hope that makes some sense! :) moving on! :) Tomorrow I plan to spend the day with my Dad, which will be nice. It's been a LONG time since I've really got to just spend the day with him. I'm looking forward to it! Hmm...what else! Well Mrs. B, I know your probably wondering about OTHER news but...for now I'm keeping quiet! ;) Hopefully SOON, I can share something with you all! :) And post LOTS of pictures! I've got plenty, that's for sure! :)

Well I guess that is all for now. Unfortunately I can't edit pictures here or downsize pictures, so it's hard to post too many on here. Sometime I'll have to blog about our big dance we did, it was GREAT!
