busy busy.

David and I have been so busy lately. It's insane. But we can't complain too much at all because the things that we have been "busy" are things like: going to the beach, getting a new apartment, planning our hawaii trip, etc.
We went to the beach for spring break (the joys of teaching and having a hubby that works in schools). One of the many reasons that we love Booster is because we went on spring break with two couples that we know through Booster. Now how many people can say that about a job! It was so much fun despite the cold and wind. "Thumper" was the game of choice. It's a fun card game that will make you sweat.
We are also getting a new apartment! We are super excited and ready to get things going. I have the big surgery for my ACL on April 15 and we move in beginning of May. It's going to be an eventful time, no doubt.
I have realized that I have really been slacking off on the blog. Since I know so many people read this, (ha, just kidding...hi mom) I'm going to try to be better about updating.  Here are some pictures of our recent trips.

We have been studying money and it's role in our relationship with Christ in our small group Bible study. Allow me to share some scripture that is powerful.

"Yours, O Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the majesty and the splendor, for everything in heaven and earth is yours." 1 Chronicles 29:11-12

"You may say to yourself, 'My power and the strength of my hands have produced this wealth for me.' But remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which He swore to your forefathers, as it is today." 
Deuteronomy 8:17-18


the winds are changing.

We have experienced a lot in the last couple of weeks. The weather in the air is changing which just makes my heart sing. I love the spring and all of the promises it seems to hold.
So I had a little fall on our ski trip in December and hurt my knee. I tried to ignore the pain and "tough it out" for a while then finally went to the doc in February. Well we found out that I tore my ACL. No good. I thought "no big deal...I'll just have the surgery in July after we go on our trip to Hawaii. The sweet doctor had other plans. I am having surgery on my knee in April. As much of a whirlwind as this has been, I have been very content in the Lord. That's not to say that I haven't freaked out and broken down...I have. But that only happens when I let satan tempt me with fear and worry, both of which are not from the Lord. The Lord is my Healer and Comfort. He will see me through this just like everything else.
We have been having some really great times out here in Dallas recently. David and I are growing in our individual relationships with our Savior so then in turn, we grow together.
In one week we will be on the beach in Florida. Man, the perks of teaching and Booster. Love it and so thankful for it!
"Praise the Lord, O my soul, with all that is in me, Praise His Holy Name!"
