Here is a quick update for our family.........
Things are going really well for us, we have truly been blessed this month when Paul was offered a full time job. This is such a blessing for us as he has been looking for full time work for 3 years! Paul was also accepted to attend Liberty University and is attending online and is doing very well, especially considering his VERY busy schedule!
Also, we adopted a sweet puppy from dear friends, we have named her Lucy, after Lucy in the Chronicles of Narnia, which we are in the middle of reading as a family and loving. She is a lab/ baset hound mix and totally acts it!
On another front, our two middles, Azariah and Katy have started school. I figured that if I mainly focus on Azariah, Katy can watch and learn so next year will mainly be overview and expanding on what she didn't catch this year.
This summer semester has brought so much change and growth for myself already thus far and I am excited to see what more the Lord has in store! I started reading a book called "Forgive and Love Again" for the summer Bible study session and it has been wonderful and has shed light on so much things in my life. I continue to pray that I don't lose this zeal and go back to being the person I was yesterday, and the day before....
Another bit of good news for our extended family is that we have had 3 nieces and 1 nephew born this past year, the oldest being my niece Kenzi who will be 1 in October. We are so excited and happy for our siblings and their families. On that same note, my sister in love, Teresa and her hubby Justin are in the process of adopting!!! At this current point, they are pulling their funds together, as every adoptive couple has to and are waiting for a birth mother to pick them as the blessed parents!!
On to the not so heart warming news..... Would you please join us in prayer as another sister in love, Sonia has been diagnosed with cancer and her outlook is not what anyone would want. They are currently traveling and looking into some other options as they clinic they were at said that there wasn't anything else they could do for them.
My mom is another beautiful woman I would like to ask for prayer for, her name is Marcella. She has a host of medical issues and is in the hospital right now with pneumonia. At this point any small cold could turn into something serious. It is so heartbreaking to watch my mother go through this, it is so excruciatingly hard for her, not only because of the constant scale 8 pain that she deals with but she is more comfortable doing for others and not being the one served...
Our family is soooo important to us that that is why I chose to add those two prayer requests to my update, they both weight on our hearts daily. I hope you don't mind.
