God is so Good!!!!!

hmmmm not in yet. well God has a reason and his timing is so much better than ours anyway. He has been stretching us and though it has been hard i am learning so much and my Faith greater. Only He knows what is best for us. I am reminded of the scripture in jeremiah that says: For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. (29:11)

Wow that is so cool.
Oh i also decided after praying for quite a while that i am going into Early Childhood Education.
I am so excited!!! if i can just get through Psychology lol

I also had the chance to sit with some friends of mine this week and brainstorm some ideas of how we can be better moms and wives and help eachother. we talked about ways to save money by clipping coupons, shopping smart and many topics. It was awesome just to be able to pray and help eachother. We are meeting once a month so if anyone has any great ideas i would love to hear them and pass them on.

Also I had conferences with Whitney and Haleys teachers today. I great reports back. They doing well and the only thing is they need to practice thier reading skills. So pray for them that they will get practice and can catch up to where they need to be.

and last but not least Nick, Whaitney and Haley have a Bible Quiz competition this Saturday. It will be Haleys first. They have been practicing at home and every Sunday @ jbq practic.

James 1:2-3 says:
2Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance.

Thank You Jesus!!!!!! for strethening my faith and helping me to keep a good attitude and not to get offended at little things(or big things) Amen
