His Life for Mine

Many thoughts have run through my mind for this blog post. This is a month of Thanksgiving where we emphasize the blessings that God has provided and bestowed. Due to a strange turn of events that still leaves me baffled, I resigned from my job. This spiritual journey of totally trusting God is even more amplified as now I seek another job- one that He wants me to have. The weeks spent agonizing over this decision brought Ted and I so close to the Lord. Now, it seems we are just waiting to see what else He will do in our lives. I find myself distracted but eagerly anticipating each new day, wondering if this will be the day He shows me the job where He wants me to serve Him.

We spent Thanksgiving with Tim and Jen and our Kountry Kudzu family vine. What a blessing each family member is as we draw closer to each other. Black Friday was spent moving Mark and Amy and Ronn and Gayle as they switched houses. Saturday was a special day devoted to my niece who turned Sweet Sixteen. Every year since she turned 13, I have made it a point to take her out for a special day for her birthday. She looks forward to it all year long, and I put alot of effort into it each year to make it memorable. What a sweet girl she is and yearns to serve our Lord. What alot of fun and laughs we had yesterday as we got her hair done, had a mini photo shoot, and then went out for supper together. It's hard to believe that the little tot that Ted's sister adopted so many years ago is now 16!!!
Today, our Sunday school class gathered for a lunch of yummy crockpot soups and a time spent making old fashioned Christmas decorations for the upcoming season.

James is hoping to hear tomorrow if he was hired for a second job in the same plaza that he works in now. Justin is doing well on his third shift job. Ted stays busy with his position for his company.

We are so blessed, but more so because without Christ giving His life for ours, we wouldn't even be able to face another day.

Will you pray with us that God will show me the job He wants me to have and still be able to be the wife and mother that He wants me to be?

Happy Thanksgiving!!!
