so i'm on the end of an awful wave of grief that seemed to come out of nowhere.  so thankful for a husband and my God who so patiently and faithfully endure and provide the much needed strength when i find myself sobbing to the point of hyperventilating.... i'm learning it comes in waves and thankful this one will be getting easier soon.

volleyball is going well.  i love coaching.  i get frustrated when i don't see the girls playing to their potential.  i'm learning i don't know how to motivate them to play together to win.  i wish i could communicate to them what a luxury it is to be able to just not have any other responsibilities for the two hours of practice or a game and the ability to just play. get over their mistakes. be patient with one another. come together and stinkin' crush their opponent.  praying they learn and also for patience for myself as i wait for them to learn.

i miss taking pictures.  i need to be challenged in this area or my camera sits in its case collecting dust.  memories are lost because my mind can't seem to collect and store these precious moments with my children yet. john and i give ourselves a small monthly allowance.  i'm using last months and this current months cash to do the family joy class at Willette .  Feel free to sign up and join me.

my husband turns 29 next Monday.  i've been putting "almost 30" on his birthday cake for the last three years.  next year when he really does turn 30 it will be very anti-climatic i feel. 

the work on the house has pretty much been at a standstill since john's car accident coinciding with me starting up volleyball.  between work, kids, vball, church, and investing in time with john--there's not much time left for anything else.

we're also trying to discern what the Lord would have for us more long-term.  China? teaching ministry? ESL? wanting to figure that out BEFORE we invest what money we do have in any one particular route.  prayers for that would also be appreciated.

  1. You and your family are great ministers of our Lord and I am thankful to have crossed paths with you. You will be led in the right direction, and I will pray that you find where you need to be directing your attention and energy. Waves of grief seem constant and come out of no where, unfortunately I think it is a part of our lives, but one we need to grow from. You are doing a marvelous job being you!
