I just wanted to say "thank you" to all my Bible study ladies. Your kind words and prayers today really lifted me up. I'm so thankful to God for bringing me to your group.

In desperate need of prayer

Hi all,

Well, unless we are totally off base, we don't think Bryan got the job. His current company is being evicted Monday so Bryan will be totally without a job. Guys please pray for me. I heard a testimony on Wednesday from a woman who described her time of trial as she was barely holding on with the very tips of her fingers and ready to just let go and give up. Well that is where I am now. I'm really struggling today with keeping that line of communication open with God. I really want to just shut everything off. I'm so angry right now. Bryan is such a loyal, hard worker and we have struggled with this issue our entire marriage. I just don't understand. I don't... I'm sorry to vent, but we really just need a break from all of this. It is really starting to take its toll on us as a family.

My Real Life Court TV...or maybe COPS

So I'm calmly perusing Facebook tonight, listening to Bryan & David play with his stereo...when all of a sudden I hear a bang. I immediately recognized that it was our fence gate being slammed. I paused for a minute thinking "Is someone in our back yard?" My question is quickly answered with "Stop MF!" How lovely... So I jump up and look out the window to see 2 police officers running through my back yard and one climbing over the fence into my back yard...apparently chasing someone.

Boy am I glad I wasn't having a party back there or something. What a nice surprise that would have been! least we know we are protected...

Maybe I'll see my house on COPS.

Update #3

They still have one person left to interview, BUT Bryan is their lead candidate. We should know something by next Wednesday! I'm praying they pick Bryan.

Our Adventure in the ER

What a lovely title, huh? Not really an adventure...more like an hour of waiting around. David decided after dinner he wanted to climb up in a chair and then fall head-first onto our kitchen floor. Being the new parents that we are, the bump looked a little large & suspicious so we decided it was best to head to the ER.

We got there with David screaming and crying which disturbed us even more because he usually calms down in the car. But within 20 minutes we knew he was going to be okay because he was trying to explore the entire hospital.

He is thankfully okay, but they decided to check him out to make sure. We have a fun night ahead of us, as we have to wake him up every 2 hours to make sure he is okay.

But my main purpose is to give thanks to God for keeping His hand of protection over our little baby boy. I think I was worse off than David because I probably aged 20 years in one hour.
