God is good

This has been a crazy week. I am still sick (I think I have a sinus infection), we got to see the baby again this week and things are looking well, and probably the craziest thing, we found a new place to rent. It is over 100 years old and huge! It has 4 bedrooms, 2 1/2 bathrooms, full basement, and full attic. I called and the whole time I am thinking "we so cannot afford this" The guy asked me how much we could afford, I gave him a number and he thought for a moment and said, " I am willing to work with that" I was amazed! We looked at it that night by flashlight since the power was out and really liked what we saw and went home to pray about it. We asked to see it the next day in the daylight and absolutely fell in love with it. Wade and I talked about it and found out we had both been praying separately about a house for us. I had been driving down the historic area close to where we live and was talking to God and said, " I know we can't afford a house around here but I really like Ainsley's school and would like Renah to attend there as well. I know that You are capable of giving us an amazing deal on a big house for us. I know you will supply our needs and care about our wants. " I had prayed that a few times and God really came through. We are even closer to our school (funny since we live less than 1/2 mile now!) and still in Ainsley's district and so much room. It is a little more than we are paying now but we just paid off our car and with the larger house, we do not need a storage unit any more! I am reaaly excited but stressed a little as we are moving in about a week and a half and finals are coming. But I know that God supplied this amazing house for us and I know he knows what is going on in our lives right now. He will help us in our time management and give us extra energy for this. I took some pictures but they were not too good but will post some soon. Have a great weekend and if you happen to be in my area and have the strong urge to clean and/or paint give me a call - lol!

one down, about 100 more to go!

Yesterday, Wade and I had our first step in becoming a minister's family. Wade had his board for licensing in the Church of God. We both went to the interview, we were in front of the campus pastor, and 3 very influential and very well educated Ph D's from the school. The began firing questions at Wade. I had a few but his were insane. I was so nervous for him. He did amazing! he answered those questions with poise and honesty. I could not have been more proud of him. After the questions, we were asked to step out while they talked. They asked us back in and told us they felt that we should go into ministry. It was a great feeling and I could not stop telling Wade that he did so good. So we are one step closer and that feels so good!

Dear Global Warming Scientists:

While I realize your research has been extensive, I think you may have overlooked a very real possibility. The polar icecaps may not be melting, they might be relocating to say the south. Because in case you haven't noticed it is supposed to be spring and it is really cold! So I am not saying that you are wrong I just think you may have overlooked somethings.

I have a confession...

This is a tough one but here goes. I am not a fan of American Idol. Whew! Glad I got that off my chest. I think this may make me a bad blogger because as I went to check the blogs I follow today, there are about 6 -7 AI updates. That is alot! Personally, I watch Biggest Loser. I love that show maybe because I should go on it but will not show all of America or even one person what I look like in a sports bra. And I cry when people yell at me! I know I would get Jillian! But I want to know am I the only one who just does not get the appeal?
