Exciting Week!!

Despite the long week, this weekend was so exciting on so many levels. My friend, Elicia, came down for the weekend. We had some much needed "friend time". She joined us for church on Sunday! What a Sunday!! I felt that the sermon was just for me. There was a sweet spirit during worship and God was at work. Sunday night was amazing! Kylie and her preschool choir led in worship. This was a HUGE deal - Kylie did not want to go to choir if they were going to sing on stage. She sang and danced and LOVED it! So proud of her! In the same evening, my sister's son -Jackson, was baptized. WOOOHOOO!! God is so good! We finished off the weekend with a party at Pizza Parlour! Praise the Lord for all of HIS blessings!

I'm back!

Goodness! I can't believe I am just now updated the blog! So much has happened since my last post! Where to begin........

**Tyler prayed for several months that God would move us back to Lavaca. We did not know that Tyler had been praying this until his Sunday School Teacher asked us about it one Sunday! HAHAHA!! Tyler had been asking the class to join him in praying that God would move us from Mena to Lavaca! That kid! In November, God answered Tyler's prayer! Josh became the new Worship Pastor at First Lavaca. Tyler's faith grew so much the day we told him. He said," I knew God was listening to me." From the mouth of babes! There is so much I learned from this moment - Tyler never doubted or worried that God was going to answer his prayer. He had full faith! How many times do I ask God something then worry about what the outcome will be......

**As I mentioned, Josh is the new Worship Pastor at First Lavaca! We are so blessed and thankful that God called us to serve here - HOME! We just love serving God with the wonderful staff HE has assembled here. Blessed beyond measure! God is moving and it is so exciting!

**Today we had two envelopes in the mail - PASSPORTS!!! Haiti is on our hearts and we can not wait to get there and love on those sweet children. God has such a wonderful plan for each one of them. I may have to bring one home! :) If it were legal, I think I would bring more than one home with me! Now to find the date that God would have us to go! Tyler and Kylie just love the pictures of the two children we have hanging on our fridge. Tyler talks about the children of Haiti all the time. He asked if he could go with us! He has such a big heart.

**This school year has flown by! In August my baby is going to Kindergarten!!! WoW! KINDERGARTEN!!! Really?! She just glows when she talks about it! I will soon be the mother of a Kindergarten and 2nd grader. Thank you God for my sweet little blessings - Tyler and Kylie Jo!

Well, I think I have caught you up for the most part! I will do my best to update a lot more often!

Song of the day: Thou oh Lord! This song is amazing!
