In awe.

We have had such a great night just soaking in God's faithfulness and mercy. We are so grateful for what He has done. Chris built our new BBQ tonight and we broke it in with some amazing southern bbq ribs. Mmmm. We both feel like a huge weight has been lifted off of our shoulders and there is now peace flowing in our hearts. It was so nice to sit in our little backyard tonight and just soak in all of the blessings that have been bestowed upon us. It is amazing when you take time to think about all of the wonderful things God has done in your life. You will always find that He is faithful. Whether the outcome is what you wanted or not, He is faithful. His plan for our life is far better than the most amazing plan we could ever come up with. It's true. If it was up to us, Chris and I would have a totally different life and he would have left Enterprise a lot sooner than now. I am so glad that the plan for our life isn't in our hands. We would be a mess. We also find comfort in knowing that the things we own really aren't ours. They are the Lord's and He will give and take as He pleases. He knows our needs and we have learned first hand that He will provide. I am truly amazed as I sit here tonight. A new job might not seem like a big deal to some of you, but to us it is. It is a blessing that we really can't even explain. It means we can now save for our future and our future kids. I am so excited. We want nothing more than to be able to provide a nice life for our kids like our parents have done for us. All in God's timing..it will happen. But, before the kiddos come we have to get the house finished and we are well on our way! We picked up our doors that came in yesterday and Chris got one up tonight. Ah, the simple things in life... closet doors to hide my mess!
One more thing...a year ago today I was on the houseboat trip with the high school group and broke my back. I honestly can't believe that it has been a year. The bones have fused back together but the pain is unbearable at times from my muscles. Please pray for the pain to subside.
If anything that I am trying to express tonight it is this: Never give up on Christ. He has a perfect plan for your life. He is faithful and He wants the best for you. All in His perfect timing loved ones...

my happy man

new closet door!
