Summer... Gone??

I cannot believe the summer is almost gone!

To be honest, I have been completely lazy this summer. This is the first summer we have had "off" in a long time. So I spent a lot of time in my recliner. Mainly reading, I bought a new Bible and I LOVE it. Ed, on the other hand bought 3 in the last few months! I have really enjoyed re-reading the life of David. For someone that had SO many fleshly issues, he was still called a man after God's own heart. I can relate!!! Well not to the adultey, murder plotting part but I think it brings so much hope for us today as we struggle to live in this fallen world!

Yes, I am still alive...

Well, it has been almost 5 months since I last blogged.

Lazy, really...

and nothing to say that I thought anyone would want to read...

Alot has been going on since I last blogged so here goes

- Cole is a junior in high school now?!?!?! Let's not even go there

- We are moving Aimee back to OCU today for her sophomore year in college... again let's not go there

- Ed is preaching pretty regularly... and again let's not go there... no really I LOVE hearing him preach. I am just a tad terrified about being a preacher's wife for many reasons. Let's name a few;
1. I do not play the piano
2. I do not wear dresses
3. I do not sing in the choir
4. I am, most of the time, not very humble.

5. BUT I know that my God can do ANYTHING so I am leaving it in His hands

- I leave for Africa in less than 50 days!!! This really hit me this weekend that I will be in Africa in little over a month. I know that I am not prepared for the heartache we will see but I have such a heart for Africa. I am anxious.

For now, that is all.... I will blog more (I hope)
