Just Asking For Prayer

Hi Guys!

Just a quick post to ask each of you to continue to remember my fertility issues. My husband's test results came back and he is fine so it must be totally me. haha I'm always causing trouble : ) Seriously, I know God will bless us with a child when He sees fit and we are waiting on Him. I praise Him for my husband's results. I also wanted to ask you to please Pray for my students and all students in general who are testing right now. Pray that they will truly demonstrate what we have taught them and shine on the CATS testing or whatever the testing may be called in your neck of the woods.

Ahhhh.... Spring Break Has Officially Ended

Hello All:

Yes... it's true. Spring Break is now gone. Tomorrow I head back to finish preparing my kiddies for the 2008 CATS test. Please keep that in Prayer. I always feel stressed this time of year and I always Pray about this test because I want my kids to show what they have learned.

I have had a wonderful break. I have hardly even thought of the stresses mentioned in the last post. It's sort of like I posted that and just left the stress with it. That's ok with me! Thank God!!! Please continue to Pray about it all.

I did accomplish all that I had planned over break. I cleaned out my clothes, even though I haven't actually taken them anywhere yet. I also cleaned my car with the help of my precious momma and brother. I went to the visitation of one of my student's mother. I also typed Verna's Testimony that told Danielle's life story. I hope to post that on here in the next few months when we finish working with it. She hopes to put it in book form to help others who are going through similar situations. My house is (was) clean! HA! I got through a few appointments, paid bills, mailed important things, and took care of myself. I also spent some time with my hubby even though he was sick during his time off. This makes me so anxious for summer break!

I had a wonderful day at Church. Our pastor did an outstanding job with the sermons (as always) and I really got a lot out of them. We are still studying the book of Ruth and it's valuable lessons. I am loving the beautiful picture of Jesus and us in the story of Ruth and her beloved Boaz. Truly beautiful!

I've had a productive night. I seemed to get a lot accomplished and I Pray that these next few weeks are the same way.

This is probably the most random post I've written in awhile. I guess that's allowed sometimes, right?

Coming Up To Breathe ... Please Pray

Hi guys:

I have not be doing that great at keeping up with my blog lately. During this time of year at work, things get pretty hectic. However, I have had plenty more things making my life hectic right now. A few days ago I found out some news that I can't technically share on here. It is legal news and it's not good. Feel free to email me and I can explain, but I don't really feel like I should be talking about it on the Internet for the world to see. No, I didn't get arrested! HAHA
Anyway, in the midst of finding this out I began to become overwhelmed with my very own party. Yep, you guessed it... a Pity Party.
I began to think of all that has been going on in this past year. I have been trying to get pregnant. I haven't gotten there yet. I feel stuck because I'd like to lose some weight (by some I mean a lot haha) and I can't exactly go on a crash diet while trying to conceive. Michael and I are looking at houses and we actually found one that we really liked but the credit union we were going through gave us to high of an interest rate and asked for some outlandish money amounts so we stepped out of the commitment. Right as we found another mortgage place and got the interest rates worked out, my legal stuff showed up. And only a few days later, we found out that the accident that I had almost 2 years ago has been showing up on my in-laws insurance instead of ours, therefore making ours shoot up now and making us feel bad for them paying it for the last 2 years (they do not want it back). What a mix up, right?!
Anyway, I have been pretty overwhelmed. God has really covered me under His wings because during this week of Spring Break I have felt a whole lot more peaceful about everything. Please just pray that everything works out the way it's suppose to and that I can get some much needed mental rest. I am stressed about all the stuff above but more than anything I have the baby thing on my heart a lot here lately. Last year when we started trying to conceive I was really anxious and then after a few months I calmed down and admitted that it may take awhile and I was OK with that. Now, I am beginning to stress again because here I am on this medication and still no baby. Yes, I know it's only been 2 rounds and I haven't found out the results of this round yet but it still leaves you wondering about the lengths you may have to go to in order to have your own child. I see my friends going through it and I am amazed by their stamina and their patience. I realize that you never really know what your mind will go through during the length of time that you have to wait. So many ups and downs. Right, Beth? And the saddest part is, I have only been going through this for almost a year unlike many of my friends who waited 8-10 years. My pain and anguish is nothing compared to what they went through.
I trust that God will provide when He sees fit and I really think that being a mom is in my future. I am just asking for your prayers in order to help see me through this situation. I ask that you pray for all of the above including the baby thing and for the legal issue to be dissolved. Also, please pray for the continued health of my family and for an upcoming peaceful summer break. Praise God that He tells us to ask Him for help in everything!
