Playing the catch up game!

Time is flying by before my eyes and I am not sure if I am liking it or not. Van the Man is growing into such a "big" boy and Eva the Diva is not my "newborn" anymore.  I can't believe in 3 weeks she will be 6 months!

Where is the time going?

Can we stop it or make it go in  s l o w   m o t i o n?

A girl can wish, right?

Van will be graduating 3K in a couple of days. I have enjoyed taking him and picking him up from school these past couple of months. I wasn't able to do so the first part of the year due to "bedrest". He has had a great school year learning how to write his letters and numbers. My favorite subject he is learning about is the love our Father has for us. His favorite is play ground time!  He has made some great friends this year and so has Mommy.

Eva has changed so much since the day we brought her home. Right now she wants to "sit up" all the time. She will tri-pod sit for long periods of time. But have something behind her, she likes to push herself backwards really fast! She loves to give open mouth kisses, you may get a surprise tongue from time to time. Poor girl is teething. She wants everything and anything in her mouth. It makes momma sad when she is hurting and I can't take it away instantly. We are still having spit-up issues and some minor sleeping issues. Other than that she is the best baby!  She loves to smile at everyone. It takes twice as long to do anything out in public. Everyone wants to see her and of course they talk about how cute she is, oh and how chunky! Makes momma proud!

Who wouldn't want to love on this precious baby?

Travis is doing good. I thank God everyday for giving me such a hard working husband. He works a lot and never complains about it. He is just thankful! With him working so hard it is allowing me to stay home with our precious kiddos. Awesome, huh? I think so!

 God has placed a ministry in Fort Valley on T's heart. It is called the Feed Center Outreach Ministry. They are a non-profit organization that helps people get off the streets and back on their feet through many programs. Some programs they offer are drug and alcohol treatment, an emergency food bank, a youth mentoring program and a free medical clinic. He has gone with Pastor Al, founder of the ministry, to a big neighborhood outreach and loved it. He talked about it for days! God has given T such a loving and giving heart. Who would have thought a quiet and shy guy growing up would be in evangelism? This is defiantly God and the Holy Spirit working through him and I love it!

Last but not least...

I am doing good also. I am done with doctors for a while...which makes me really happy! My white count is still elevated but after many many rounds of lab work they still cannot find the source of infection. I wanted and needed a break so I said I would maybe be back in 6 months. I know that God has healed me completely and this is just the devil making me question or doubt my healing.

I will not become "faint or weary" for I know my God has healed me!

"But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint." Isaiah 40:31

For my trust is in the Lord!

I have been praying the "God where do you want me prayer" for the past few months.  I know I have been called into ministry. But I am still waiting on God's reply...sometimes I panic in the quietness and question:

 "did I miss you God?"

I know my answer will be revealed soon. I am praying that I have ears to hear, a heart that is open and eyes to see!

For my trust is in the Lord!

Until then I am excited to start serving along side of my husband. I know God is moving us out of our comfort zones. The devil and our flesh can play such harsh mind games...telling us we are not worthy, we are not smart enough or that we don't know enough to share God's Word. But I am reminded of all the stories where God used ordinary people, where their past were a total wreck, and just full of junk. I want to be that ordinary person that God uses to bring more people to Him!

I just love how God is changing mine and T's heart and the way we view things now. Sometimes I can just cry tears of joy and be is awe of God's goodness and faithfulness!

I am not going to make any promises...but I have it on my "to do" list to keep this blog more updated.

Oh, only if time could go in  s l o w  m o t i o n!
