It's been a little while since I posted last. Life has been quite interesting. I am starting to settle into my new job but with that new job has come many challenges. As a young woman in an administrative position, i have found that respect is not necessary given but rather, it must be earned. I am working very hard and learning that concept and relying on God to guide my steps so that I make wise decisions that reflect well on the schools I represent and the Co-op that I work for. This job, even though I love it, has been one of the most challenging experiences in my life. Everyday, I am given a new challenge and I have learned more than anything, that I must rely on God and always do what is right in His eyes. Thank you God for giving me this wonderful challenge and helping me to grow as a person.
On another note, the kiddos are doing well. They both have a little cough but I am hoping that they are on the mend. Evan has been sleeping very well and I am starting to feel like I am catching up on sleep. It's kind of funny that the more sleep you get, the more you seem to need. Luke has been really learning a lot at church and at Killion's. The other day he told me that "it rained for 40 days.". He is starting to prayer for people when they are sick or in need and it just warms my heart. He has finally started to count and can do so to 6. He has also been saying a lot of his ABC's. I know most kids his age are already doing this and as a teacher I am a little embarrassed but Luke has just not been that interested and I want him to love to learn not demand that he do so. Luke loves the farm and tools and I really think if pa needed him to, he could run that tractor all by himself and probably will be before long. Evan now has two teeth and is drooling everywhere. Let me tell you, those teeth are sharp! I love these angels so much and I am so blessed that God trusted me enough to be their mom.
Jeff has finally finished photo shoots for the most part. We are so thankful to have him home more often. Jeff truly is a good hearted man and I am so thankful for him. We recently went to watch the movie "courageous.". I highly recommend that all fathers watch this movie. It is very inspiring and really tugs at the heartstrings. Jeff watched so intently while I attempted to fight back the tears. I know that he is committed to our family and raising these gifts from God in a manner that would be pleasing to the Lord. As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.
God bless and I hope each ofnyou have a great week filled with his blessings. Let your light shine for Him.
