The Latest Randomness

I can't believe it is already October 14th! Where does the time go? Why do I say that every month? I don't have much to say, but here's the latest...

  • I went to a conference in Charleston, South Carolina last week. I had a blast meeting other worship leaders and Kids Choir Directors...I even met the woman who wrote the 2nd musical I was in when I was 8 years old! That was an amazing moment. The trip was 6 days long, and if you know me, then you know that by day 3 I was dying to be home again. I LOVE traveling with Adam, but I HATE being away from him for longer than a day! It is pitiful and kind of embarassing...but I just thank God that I desire to be with him that much. I just can't get enough of him.

  • Miracle of miracles, it actually feels like fall here! We had our first cold front after Ike, which was a huge blessing since we had no power that week. God's timing is perfect!

  • My latest challenge is working on my guitar skills. I have been leading worship for my kiddos on Wednesday nights and it has really stretched me. Adam has been incredible, teaching me new chords every week and helping me figure out good guitar strums (my rhythms tend to be a bit "campy" and cheesy--my punky husband is helping me phase that out!) I freak out every night before I play, but then the music starts and my nerves calm down. The callouses on my fingers help too...before I had those, my fingers were in so much pain!

  • I have decided that I am head over heels for my puppy and 100% willing to admit it. I went through a season of wondering "Is this normal? Am I over the top?" Really, I just don't care anymore...I have become a dog owner who is obsessed with snuggles and playtime...she is my therapy!

  • This Thanksgiving I get to see my sis-in-law Lindsay's new home and play with my nephews for almost a week! I think about it at least once a day...we love Nashville and are always rejuvinated from our time with Neal and Lindsay. Can't wait!

  • I started my sugar-free diet again yesterday. After 7 antibiotics this summer, it was time for my body to get a good cleansing. I have actually grown to enjoy eating this way...after doing it in February and March, I rarely cheated b/c I grew so accustomed to it. Anyways, here's to veggies, fruit and lean protein! Good-bye sweets, potatoes, bread, sauces and anything else with sugar, hello to healthy fats and veggies with every meal!

  • I am in BSF again this year and loving our study of Moses. The words of God to Moses are incredible...I am humbled as I realize over and over that the God who parted the sea and sent forth water from the rock is the same God who listens to my prayers every day and walks with me. He is so good. I have missed the Old Testament and am savoring this in-depth study of it.
That's all for now...

You finally updated!! I check your blog all the time to see what you've been up to. I love you dear friend, and really can't wait to see you, hopefully around Christmastime.

Also, reading what you said about being away from Adam for 6 days...I am so impressed you did that. I am the same way about being with Matt all the time. I will use your words to quote about me, it is "pitiful and embarrassing." :) But you know they gotta love feeling so wanted. :)

I have to admit~ I am jealous about BSF...and our time out to lunch after BSF occasionally. Maybe we can still do that?

Hey sweet friend! I know that some day we'll get to visit again! We miss you guys. Lyric is too precious. We just got our first dog a few months ago and I am totally smitten with her. She is an outside dog, so we don't get to have much snuggle time! Last night we had our first freeze. I was so worried about her, you'd think it was my own child outside!
Also wanted to write and tell you that we are about 3 months pregnant. Grace still isn't so sure she wants a baby in the house! :) love ya girl and glad you guys are well!
