8.28.09 yikes.

just to let you know. I love you and am thinking about you.

you, fam. you, friends. golly, i am thankful to share life with you. it's like i wish that we can all meet in the middle somewhere and just celebrate for a week. be refreshed in being with those who love and know us.

some things of note i'd like to share briefly before work:
  • NC rocked! period. i'm so thankful for my friends and family who graciously let me slip into their life for a few days. elaboration soon.
  • nights are cold here. seriously, i'm sleeping under 3-4 layers...including a down comforter. i'm such a wimp.
  • i have only 3 days left on staff at vanguard church. after agreeing to a year commitment it seems good to step down from my position and i'm thankful to be able to train Mark these past few weeks. it's a good excuse to get to have dinner with his fam. his wife patti makes bangin' bread!!
  • currently, i am still processing mortgage loans! refinance...purchase anyone??! serious.
  • i have had a compassion kid for i think over a year now and i got wonderful news yesterday: HE IS GOING TO COLLEGE!! Isn't that wonderful. Thank you, thank you, thank you Jesus! He lives in Kenya and will be going to school to be a civil engineer. Whooo. I'm so proud of Samuel's hard work and thankful that God sees that and is rewarding him.
  • Life is much different and I covet your prayers. I struggle with believing that this will be a good season of life. I struggle with not having joy. It is not fun for me to trust that God will provide a job come Dec. (will have to be a later post) Sometimes things like this can fill my thoughts. There is so much to celebrate and be thankful for in my life, and i don't want to lose sight of that in this new season.

Okay. Late for work. And again, thank you for your love and support. Those near and far. You bless me.

Hi Cal! I've returned to the blogging world - but having a hard time writing my first entry in a month or I thought I'd get inspiration from some of the my fave bloggers - you being one of them. Oh how I love and appreciate you - more than I could ever express. Thank you for your kind words, for all your help in this transition, for all your unseen sacrifices and labors serving at Vanguard and the families....I could go on and on, but let's resume this conversation over a breadmaker shall we? ya girl.
