Wow--it's been a while since I've posted. Been a little "hairy" around here. For the last 3 weeks I've had a test every Monday. Each test covered 300-500 pages of material!! Oh my! So I've been studying a lot. And crying a lot. And being REALLY thankful for my dear friends who've been helping out!!
So, on Tuesday--I took a breath.....and we all played! Brett, Lydia, and I all went to Tanger Outlet. We shopped, ate out, and we came home and Brett and I watched Letters to Juliet. It was a great day. It made up for the last 3 weeks.
Lydia also got "teething biscuits" for the first time! What a mess, but she loved them.
And I got new jeans. Well sort of (hehe). Brett has ALWAYS wanted me to get a pair of "worn" jeans. I always refused. So when he told me they were only $14.99 I agreed to try them on. And I thought....I spend most of my time in coffee shops or at home on the porch studying anyway. So why not. He was happy......and I was too. After all--only $14.99 for a pair of $49.99 jeans. Just don't tell my mother I paid money for an "old" pair of jeans!
Of course, these "new" things are all temporary, but ONE DAY--we will all be able to experience how God will take all of those things hurtful or painful and make them ALL NEW! Revelation 21:1-5
Be encouraged today--remember.....it is only a SEASON!
