Sometimes I feel so inadequate. I look at myself and say who am I? I think Lord can you really use me, can I really do the job? Lord help my unbelief, help me to see beyond myself, my failures, my weaknesses. Help me to believe, to see that you have a perfect plan and a purpose and that I can do nothing in my own strength but only through You.

Song: Lord it was you who created the heavens
Lord it is your hand that put the stars in their place
Lord it is your voice, that commands the mornings
Even oceans and their waves bow at your feet

Lord who am I compared to Your glory Oh Lord
Lord who am I compared to Your majesty

I am Your beloved, Your creation
And you love me as I am
You have called me chosen
For your kingdom, unashamed to call me your own
I am your beloved


This is kind of whats on my heart...random.

a glimpse of something bigger


a deep burning desire


God given, God inspired dream

what's up?

Okay, sorry about that...I had to go earlier, because we were getting ready to go to the grocery store. We came home and then I made homemade pancakes, which I was really excited about. I know it probably sounds silly, but it is something I have never done before, I usually just use the mix at the store. Anyway, they turned out really good!! :)

We are finally settled into our house, and absolutely loving it!! Jeremiah goes fishing out at the pond out back almost everyday. We are having to water the grass like crazy because of it being new sod it won't take root without lots and lots of water. We haven't had hardly any rain. I am kind of scared to see what the first water bill will be, although I have talked to a few people who say it won't be that bad.

I started my new job at Apria doing Enteral Customer Service, about 3 weeks ago. I love it!!! I am so happy that it all worked out and I know that it was totally God, with the timing working out the way it did. I am learning a lot! I was definately ready to learn something new and it is a good change. :) I will be getting on the phones next week and actually taking patient calls. I am excited!!!
We are still the nursery coordinators at Grace. It is still kind of stressful, but we have had a few new people start working so that is an answer to prayer. Church is going good. We just had our 4th of July celbration, it was really awesome!!

Our puppy is as spoiled as ever! She is so stinkin cute though! She loves the new house, she has more room to run around and chase her ball!:)

Jeremiah and I went on a date last night. Dinner and a movie. We went to Logans Steakhouse for dinner and then went to see Ratouille (sp?). It was a really cute movie!

My mom is doing good and actually about to come over for dinner, I am making a new chicken and noodles casserole. Another recipe I got of the internet this morning...we'll see how it turns out!

I will talk to you all later...Love ya,

our new house

I am finally posting pics of the house!!! :) We are finally settled in. We love it!! I have more pics that I will post, but I have to go for now.

a House

I am so glad it is Friday and my friends are coming into town this weekend!!! Yippeee!!!!
The weather is ridiculous though, cold and rainy!

Pray for us. We are really considering buying a house. I am excited, but at the same time it is kind of scary just because I don't know that much about it. It is a big responsibility, but also an investment. We have been praying about it for a couple of months and actually talking to an agent for about a month now. We have met with her once and gone over general stuff like credit and all that. We are now at the point of being pre-approved and actually talking to a realtor and finding something we like. Our lease here at our apartment is up next month so we are debating on what to do. I think we are just going to sign up for a month to month lease even though we will have to pay an extra $70 a month. We are going to get rid of our digital cable and call it even. We will see what we find.

This song was in my head when I woke up this morning. It really was comforting, I love this song...it is an oldie but a goodie!

You are my strength when I am weak
You are the treasure that I seek
You are my all in all
Seeking you as a precious jewel
Lord to give up I'd be a fool
You are my all in all

chorus: Jesus you're the lamb of God
Worthy is your name
Jesus you're the lamb of God
Worthy is your name

Taking my sin my cross my shame
Rising again I bless your name
You are my all in all
When I fall down you pick me up
When I am dry you fill my cup
You are my all in all

My tears are falling
My heart is aching
You are there
My thoughts are racing
My world is crumbling
You are there

Why do I fight so hard against you
I fight you to do things my own way
And yet in the end I'm still helpless
I need you to take this pain

All along you say give it to me
But I bury your words and I strive
My ways are futile
It all means nothing without you

Be my life Lord, be my breath
Be everything to me again
Bring me back to the place
Where I trust you as my Savior and friend
Where strife and struggle end
And I surrender all to you
Be my everything Jesus again

brown county

Yesterday was such a beautiful day!! I love Saturdays!!! We slept in and then around 9am got up and decided to go to Brown County State Park for the day. We got ready and took the puppy with us. It was only $5 to get into the park. We had a great time. Jeremiah ended up wanting to go fishing, so we went to the Park Office and got a fishing license for the day and then went to a bait and tackle shop for the gear. If we would have planned ahead we would have brought his fishing pole and stuff from home. Anyway, we spent the rest of the day at the lake fishing. Lilly loved being outside all day! I was hoping to get some sun, but you can't really tell.

This past week at work I had to get a training package together of everything that I do in my job. It is funny because I guess I just didn't realize how much knowledge I really have. I guess when you do the same thing everyday for 3 years you don't even realize how much you know and have learned over that time. It was hard to remember every detail and write it all out. In a way I really am going to miss my job. Not the people necessarily ( a couple) but more the work itself. It is comfortable feeling to come in and know what I am doing. I know however that God has something else out there for me and it really is definately time for a change. I am still praying about what to do. I never heard back from St. Francis but I am going to call them tomorrow. My husband and I pray every night, and this has been our number one request. I guess the biggest thing is it is scary not knowing where you are going. God knows! I have to trust Him. He has never let me down before!!

Well, I have to go do laundry. Our laundry is ridiculously out of control. Neither of us like to fold laundry, but it has to be done. I want it all done and put away for the week.

The Puppy

Yeah!! I finally got pictures on here!! This is our new puppy (Lilly). I love her to death. She is so fun!! I think we are already spoiling her! It seems everytime we go to the store we either buy another squeaky toy or treats! :)

Yesterday was my moms birthday party with her friends. I had it here at my house. My husband had to work. It turned out really nice. I made a cake and everyone brought taco stuff. I provided the meat, everyone else brought all the fixins. I couldn't believe it because it snowed last night. When everyone left there was actually about 1/2 inch of snow on their cars. This weather is ridiculous!!!

I had to work in the nursery this morning at church again. I can't say I didn't know what I was getting myself into with taking on this responsibility of being the nursery coordinator, but it is pushing my patience at times. I just have to keep praying about it and giving it to the Lord because I know that I can do nothing in my own strength. It just is hard because our church is a big church, but it is so hard to get people to work in the nursery. Anyway at least this morning I had a helper so my husband got to be in the service. I was happy about that. Anyway, I went to the one year old nursery to take one of the kids to the bathroom, and there was Morgan. I was so excited, because that meant Elizabeth was at church. Elizabeth came in to get her just as I was leaving, so we got to talk for a second. I was sooo happy that Elizabeth came to church.

Okay I feel like I am rambling, but one more thing. My job is getting transferred out of state. My boss told us last Thursday that as of August our jobs we be moving. So I have been praying about what to do. Well one of my moms friends, works at St. Francis and said she knows of a position that they are hiring for right now. She said that it will probably start out paying about what I make now, and the people are really nice. She said she is going to put a good word in for me, and I am going to go to an interview tomorrow morning. I am excited. I really hope it works out.

The sun will come out

It has been raining since yesterday afternoon. Thank goodness the sun finally came out. My dog will not use the bathroom outside in the rain! This morning when I got up she got all excited to go outside, I put her leash on and she bounded for the door. She ran down the stairs and then suddenly came to a dead stop, because she realized it was pouring down rain. It was really quite humorous. She seriously wouldn't go any further. She came back in the house and was so dissapointed, it was like someone burst her bubble. She is so fun!! Anyway, the sun finally came back out and she was all excited to go outside again.

I was listening to song today, one of my husbands CD's, The Crabb family...probably never heard of them...anyway, one of the songs the chorus says, then out of nowhere the storm was over, the sun could shine again. I don't know all the rest of the words but that part just keeps going over and over in my head and it really made me think. I may have "rainy" days or times in my life, but the sun will always shine again. Gods promises are always true. He will never leave me or forsake me. Sometimes I just have to wait out the storm, and like the puppy I may be dissapointed but I just need to remember that the sunshine is around the corner.

Okay, well gotta go...I have to eat dinner before going to work in the nursery tonight at church.
