I sold my Alero today. I think I was more attached to it than I thought I was. I was a big dork and took some pictures of it before I sold it though:) The truck is also fun to drive (since Silas gets the new car), but it is two and a half times longer than my car, so Im having slight difficulty manuvering to say the least!! Especially in parking lots!

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, His mercies never come to an end. They are new every morning. Great is His faithfulness.
~Lamentations 3:22-23~

Silas gave me this verse as a birthday gift in the form of a wall hanging, which is now in my kitchen where I see it every morning. What a blessing it is to be reminded daily that God is faithful. loving, and merciful. I couldnt have asked for a more perfect gift. Thanks Silas!

Only Tuesday

Why is it that Mondays are so long that by the time you get to Tuesday, it feels like it should be the weekend already? Fall semester has just started and Im already feeling overwhelmed and looking for areas I can cut back in. I guess Im just not back into the swing of things yet, and Im trying desperately to hang onto the last lingering moments of summer when I wasn't so busy all the time. Why does it always feel like everything is a priority too?? As I try to mentally evaluate my life and activities, it never seems like any of them should be eliminated, as each one contributes to the fullness of life in its own, unique way. One thing is certain...I am not giving up sleep, snacks, or bathing:) Cleaning the house is rapidly becoming the first thing to go, along with my sanity. Hopefully the sanity thing will come back next week..I will let you know!!!

Just figuring out how to post pictures on this thing. This one is of Silas and I on our cruise back in April this year. I think this picture was taken after his trip to the Jamaican dentist, as he is actually smiling and has his front teeth!! Great story....bad experience!! Posted by Picasa
I can't believe I am actually entering the world of blogs!! I'm one of those people who just looks at a computer and it crashes, so this is a big adventure for me. Hopefully this will be a good way for our family and friends to keep up with us and what is new in our lives:) Enjoy!
