good news.

"the good news for those who enjoy God's being God is that He enjoys them. He delights in those who hope in His immeasurable power." 

psalm 147:10-11
His delight is not in the strength of the horse,
nor His pleasure in the legs of a man;
but the Lord takes pleasure in those who fear Him,
in those who hope in His steadfast love.

there are so many times when we just have to rest in the fact that God is God and we are not. that brings me great joy and should take a huge burden off knowing that we don't have to know it all or understand Him completely. He's God. we're not.


days off.

i am sitting in a starbucks at 10 am...on a school day. something feels so rebellious about being gone from school on a weekday. i love it.

we are in houston for an apartment life interview. apartment life is a program for apartment communities. "cares" teams live in an apt complex and plan events for the residents to engage with each other. the purpose of the team is to build a community within a complex.

so we're interviewing to do it in houston and hoping that the Lord will orchestrate where we should go. we know that he will. 

wish us luck. 


then and now.

then. (4 weeks ago)


can't believe how much he's grown. 

i am obsessed over sully. i am worried what a baby might be like. yikes.



12 days til pool time. sleeping in. wearing no makeup because it sweats off too fast. rompers. nights on a patio. road trips with my man. movie marathons.

 i can do it!


dance your shoes off.

i just saw this video for the first time this morning. it will make your heart sing.

i don't know how to make it bigger. sorry. i am a teacher. this is not my strong point.

the video was done by second baptist church in houston (woop!). we visited this church and it has a lot of potential to become a church home for us. there are 25,000 people that go there. 25,000. for us alabama folk, that's a lot.



i'd just like to say that i am very thankful for these women:
( i know david is too)

we have pretty awesome grandmas too. 
love you ALL very much.



the endorphin high after a work out is the greatest. why can't i remember that when i am whining on my couch about going? 
exercise = feel better. wish that would lock in my brain.

that's all.


houston, we have lift-off.

hi friends,
most of y'all know this but, we're moving to houston!
it is such a weird thing- knowing you're moving but it not actually being here yet. all we know if what we're leaving right now. but we do know that the Lord has put it on our hearts and provided for us.

the things that we're called to do aren't always easy. most of the time, the best things in the end are the hardest at the beginning. we love dallas. so much. but we know that the Lord is good and wouldn't send us if there weren't a plan and purpose.

we (I) were getting discouraged about some things: where are we going to live? am i going to get a job (in the worst education budget crisis ever)? will we find a good church? so many questions...

this past weekend we went to houston and i am still amazed at how the Lord orchestrates things. He gave us the boost that we desperately needed to be excited.
it's like every time that the Lord comes through, i'm surprised. i'm shocked then at how little faith i had. i am so thankful that the Lord pours His grace and blessings out on us so undeservingly.

"let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for He who promised is faithful."
