A bit of this, and a touch of that...

   Gosh, it's been awhile since I posted. Sorry about that!

   Life has been pretty low key lately. Something that I'm thankful for. I like to be busy for sure, but, I don't like the feeling of not being able to catch my breath.  Why can't everything stay peaceful like I want it to?! ;)

   This post is probably going to be filled with random goings-on so please bear with me.

Our puppies are still for sale. They're almost 10 wks. old now and really need to go. We have had absolutely no interest in them at all. A little strange to me and also a little overwhelming, but, I have to trust in the Lord's timing. I just feel like several people are really missing out on these pups. They are adorable and each one has a great personality. I'm going to miss them when they go!

  John turns eighteen in five days! I almost can't believe it. Seems like yesterday we were running around the farm catchin' crawdads in the creek. Oh, and let's not even mention his graduation coming up in June!  We're both still so young, but, already life seems to be rushing by us. Thankfully, I don't think we have many wasted years and I look forward to the ones ahead, Lord willing.  I am so proud of John and his heart to follow after God. He believes the Lord has called him into ministry and is now praying about exactly what that is supposed to look like.

   One of my best friends just entered into a courtship not long ago! I am super excited for her and I am interested in what direction God is going to take it. She is such an encouragement for she wants to please the Lord so much through this relationship. This is the first time that I have had a friend who likewise believes in and is actually experiencing a courtship. It makes me look forward to the day when a young man calls my dad up to talk about me (insert silly grin here) :))   I'm afraid this situation has got my head wandering a little too much lately. Ahhhh, the Lord's timing is perfect, I know.

Well, not much else is going on. I do wish I could remember all the silly little things the boys do to share with you. They are getting so big. Today Matthew wore the cutest little cap, over-all shorts, and alligator Crocs shoes. Wish you could have seen him :)

Well, folks. It's time for all good girls to be in bed, so I better skedaddle. Hope ya'll are having a very blessed week.


  1. Awh, I cannot believe John is going to be eighteen!! Made me tear up some.
    Haha, thank you :) I am so blessed to have you as a friend to encourage me! I totally look forward to that day too ;) *also with a silly grin*
    Love you dear sister!
    Through Christ,

  2. So sorry about the pups. I wish I could take one, but not at this point... God's timing is perfect, so I know it will turn out perfectly. :)
    That is neat about your friend! I am committed to courtship, but it is a big threatning thing staring at you. I know what you mean about your heart starting to wander. I think we all struggle with that one!
    Thanks for the encouragement. I needed it today. :D
