Sappy Ramblings

We are in the midst of 3 weddings in 3 forgive the sappy ramblings ;)

This was our song---the video is a total cheese fest, so just close your eyes and imagine two insanely young kids getting married! (gosh I can't believe it's been almost 12 years!)

Last weekend's wedding had a cowboy theme going on...incredibly fun and so cool to see friends that I haven't chatted with in forever and a day! Corey found himself a little cowgirl and I caught his first slow dance with my cell phone camera...oh least its a memory ;)

This song's been on my heart a lot today....lots of friends struggling with various things...we're struggling with various things....But as always, God proves himself greater than any struggle, sickness or hurt.

I love you guys and am praying for you!!!

Into the darkness you shine
Out of the ashes we Rise
There’s no One like You
None like You.

Our God is greater, our God is stronger
God You are higher than any other
Our God is Healer, awesome in power
Our God, Our God…

How awesome is that!!!
May you find God's peace in whatever situation you find yourself in today :)

I'm sure y'all have been waiting with baited breath to find out how ther Perseid viewing went!

We swam all day at my parents' house...hence the pink cheeks! They were sooooo tired..Riley, was a total crab! (and Corey insisted on wearing his Sonic hat...eventhough it was a million degrees outside!)

Thank God that we saw 3 huge meteors zooming across the sky within like 30 min!!! If we waited any longer, there might not have been anything left of us....those stupid mosquitoes!! (and mother of the year for forgetting the bug spray!)

We were going to go back out on Friday night to try and see if we'd have better luck with Dad, but...storms and cloud cover pretty much ruled the night :/ Oh well, maybe Dad can see them next year!


Today we got some news on dates for the whole app process in New Mexico!

It was perfect...Jim's testing in September for his national license and we were worried that it would conflict with the fire department's tests.

I was flying high, praising God.....then I started thinking...I really need to stop doing that!!!!

Why is it that God proves himself faithful time and time again, but I just can't wrap my head around it?!? Why do I always wait for the other shoe to fall? Why can't I be happy with the miraculous and stop looking at the impossible?

And then as if on cue, I get my socks blessed off by some lovely treats in the mail!

Melissa over at Green Girl in Wisconsin had a little giveaway that I won! Aren't these note cards adorable?!? If you love them half as much as I do, head on over and visit Erin at Ink Obsession Design.

This morning, I sat down for a little God Time and was led to Romans you know how hope filled this little chapter is?!? Ever line is a nugget of encouragement...or, maybe it was just me today.

So here's a bit of what I'm holding onto at the moment:

~I did not receive a spirit of fear...But a Spirit of Sonship!

~I am a child of God----Abba Father!

~My present suffering cannot be compared to the glory that will be revealed in us!

~I will patiently wait, hoping for the unseen!

~The Spirit searches my heart and intercedes for me!

~In ALL things God works for the good of those who love him!

~If God is for us, who can be against us?

~He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?

~Nothing can separate me from the Love of Christ!

We Are More Than Conquerers!!! Live victoriously, Live Bravely, Live Fully in the arms of God!!!

P.S.---I might be a little absent form the whole blogging scene for a little bit. We have SO much to do! But hey, maybe I'll be blogging more because we'll have something actually interesting going extreme home makeover, but on the super cheap!

I'm Melting......

Whew! It's HOT here!!!

I'm thinkin' momma needs a 'rita big time! (Jim's working tonight so tomorrow night the blender and I are spending some quality time)

Are any of you going out tonight to watch for meteors?

The Perseids are coming...the Perseids are coming!
If you're adventurous and an early riser, tonight/tomorrow early morning are the best viewing might be able to see them Friday/Sat, but it's supposed to be raining Friday night.

Last year we went out around 11pm and a few. So tonight, I'm loading the boys up in their pj's tonight and heading out to find a dark country road to do some star gazing :) Hopefully we'll have some good pictures to follow!

Call Of The Wild

Well, it's August for sure here...the cicadas are chirpping, the mosquitos are bitting and the boys are sqeezing in the last few million canon balls of the season~



Not much else to blog about---it's too stinkin' hot to do much else. Everything with the possible move is still in limbo, as usual we're playing hurry up and wait ;)

Have a wonderful rest of the week...stay cool!
