Christmas

Right now the girls are dancing to Christmas music. Can you believe it...Christmas in almost April. Makes me think ahead to what things are going to be like in December. I thought today would be a good a day as any to talk about goals. There are so many things that I want from this year. So many expectations that I sometimes wonder if it's too much for a year to handle but then I think. With the help from our Almighty God and a little dedication and discipline it's all within reach. I pray that this year is full of met goals as we lean on our Heavenly Father to do immeasurably more than we would ever hope for. Here it goes:
1) Get out of debt...we only have a little more to go and we're done
2) Pay off our loved ones...piece of cake
3) Get money from a certain uncle so we can move forward on this great journey
4) Start looking for a house
5) Start working permanently at church...I'm starting in May but I hope it continues through 2009 and on.
6) Aiva starting preschool
7) Sitters for Ana and Aiva while I'm at work

I think that just about covers it. All the rest that God blesses us with are just bonuses. I'm really starting to enjoy the Christmas music that's playing. If you would excuse me I think I'll join my daughters and take a dance or two! Au revoir!

Tired

OK..my new beginning lasted about a week but I was surprised that it lasted that long. Today has been a rough day. Nate worked last night and it totally through things off schedule. He is supposed to have Monday's off but instead he was stuck in bed sleeping...not something that I wished he were doing but knew that it was essential if he were to go to work on Tuesday night. This new job of his has been a God send but at the same time been so frustrating. There's no other word for it but frustrating. When things seem to be on the straight and narrow we get another curve ball thrown our way. I'm so ready for something that is just consistent. I don't know if it's going to be when I start back at the church or what but I'm so tired of just trying so dag on hard. It doesn't help that Nate's family...mainly his mom and dad keeps the pot stirred. I keep on saying that next months is going to be better but is it really. I sure hope that April is going to be better than March. I guess my thing is that I need to make sure that it is. I'm not sure what steps to take to make sure that it is but I'm in the process of pursuing it. Some thing's got to give! I got a call from Toya, my friend from Dell, and it was such a breath of fresh air talking to her. I think mainly is b/c when I was at Dell I could be someone that I couldn't be at home. That was somewhat the part that I hated too but now that I'm home it's nice to kind of step back into that role. OK, I have to get going but I hope that the next blog brings some hope and maybe a little peace thrown in!

Fresh

I feel for the last few weeks I’ve had to start fresh. Isn’t that what life is like though. Thank God for His tender mercy that gets us through. I really don’t understand how non-Christians do it. I need to know that the next day is going to be better or at least know that someone is in control of what happens next.

This past week has been absolutely exhausting. So many things weighing me down that I could barely breathe or see the light. I felt so disconnected to everything and all I wanted was to breathe. At times I would take a deep breath and still not feel relief. After a talk and some prayer all that changed. So like God…all He wanted was for communication. Thank you God for always being there to listen to the details of our “difficult” life. Help me to remove the stuff that gets in the way of looking to you. I need you more than ever to get me through this.

I’m looking at this week as a new start…a new beginning. I have the most amazing husband and sometimes I forget that I have such a tremendous treasure. Life gets in the way and I forget. Call me stupid but I really feel that this happens to everyone. We get so caught up with finances, kids, work, and schedules that we loose sight of our helpmate. I pray, as I start my so-called “new beginning”, that I would take time everyday to concentrate on my husband and make him feel significant, special, and sacred. I pray you do the same.
