Before the Week Starts

last week ended on a not so high note, but i think we are going to be fine. i WILL get the hang of my new schedule. i WILL get all my assignments completed for class, and i WILL keep myself spiritually uplifted through the help of my Lord and Savior AMEN!

"For He is Lord of lords and King of kings; and those who are with Him are called, chosen, and faithful." Revelation 17:14

i consider sunday's to be the actual first day of the week so with that said i WILL say that today has been a great day. jere took me for a date this afternoon. we went to sonic and got fried cheese sticks and onion rings, cokes, and went for a drive around the lake here in Anson. we talked for about an hour about nothing and everything and it was sooo nice. when we got home the kids were getting dinner ready and settling in for the night.

now with it only a little after 9 the two youngest are in bed, jackson is reading in his room, and the oldest girls are finishing up some homework and showering. all that is left for me to do tonight is shower and sleep and i am 100 percent positive that i can definitely handle that.

praying for your week as well as mine friends,


PS i just like this picture of jere and i, there are so few with just the two of us together without several children in the pictures :) the other is our bedroom with the new curtains i finished. i love them!!

I want you to know the painting I'm working on is about just this thing. I'll blog more about it later but here's the synopsis; Our pastor said this last week(or at least it's how my brain heard it): We are finite beings and can only stretch so far, but God in his infinite love, mercy, and grace reaches down to lift us up.
We are praying for your family that this routine will become easier!

Oh!...and we really miss you. Maybe we can have you all over sometime this fall(I know that's nuts with school and all your kids, so we'll see.)
