We're Back!

Our five days of vacation in North Myrtle beach were wonderful--and gone far too quickly! We had a great time swimming in the ocean and the pools every day. We visited a beautiful sculpture garden and wildlife refuge, and saw a lot of the sights in the M.B. area. Most of all we just enjoyed one another's company without the distractions of work and school. Sappy--I know--but hey, we love spending time together, going on adventures, and being silly!

puppy fever

Have you ever seen a cuter puppy? I saw this little girl who is for sale right now from a French Bulldog breeder in Alabama. She is a Frenchton: French Bulldog crossed with Boston Terrier. She will probably be about 20 lbs when she is grown. When I saw her I fell in love. I am now smitten with puppy fever. If I wasn't gone 12 hours a day at work I would be driving to Alabama right now...

Change and Growth

Everyone who knows me knows I am not a big fan of change.

We have been going through a period of growth within our small group that has caused one of the couples go their own separate way. While I do believe that this is all in God's plan for us and is important for our growth in our walk with Him, it is so very hard to deal with emotionally. It is difficult not to blame this on something that we have done wrong, rather than accepting that God called them in a different direction than He was calling the other couples in the group.

And although I know there really was not another option to what has happened, I still cannot prevent a profound sense of sadness and loss from sweeping over me.

So hot this week

This isn't an exaggeration.
