CAN YOU BELIEVE THE SIZE DIFFERNCE BETWEEN ROMEO AND RUNTSY... OBVIOUSLY HE IS THE RUNT OF THE LITTER... WE ARE HOPING HE MAKES IT. HE SEEMS FINE SO FAR:)
When we moved here we kind of wanted to live the farm life with animals, land, etc. Well we really didn't get all of that, but we have a sweet family from church that hooked us up with the pregnant rabbit, gives us fresh farm eggs, and recently invited us to come out and kill and dress the chickens. YIKES! How is that for a homeschool project? There is no way I will be able to do it, but the kids are excited about it. I am glad they get to experience the fun things about life on a farm and they are learning a lot:)
Well, everything is going well with the young girl living with us. She wants me to go to her ultrasound with her. The old me would have jumped at the chance... the new me isn't sure I could handle it. How do I explain that to a 15 year old? There is such a tangled web of emotions for me. Sometimes I think how did this happen that we have her living with us. For some reason we just felt the Lord telling us we should do it. I can't explain it. I know it makes no sense. I have a hard time around most pregnant ladies and now I have one living with me. But for some reason that hasn't been too bad. Maybe I can handle it now because she isn't showing much yet and maybe it is because she is in a crisis pregnancy. She seems to understand our grief over Samuel so that has been good. I really want to be there for her. We are having lots of great conversations. Today JOJO overhead her say that she doesn't have any friends... and he said, "Will you be my friend? Precious. I pray God is using us in her life.
Well, I am off to an overnight retreat. I will treasure the time to get away and hopefully be refreshed a bit. The speaker is actually one of the Professor's wives from the seminary. She was a HUGE mentor to me and the other sem. wives when we were there. Boy have I missed her. We were able to talk yesterday on the phone but I can't wait to get a hug from her. I will never forget her coming to my apartment last year at the sem. while we were getting checked out. After the housing guy left, she gave me a sweet gift and we just cried and prayed together. I knew how much I would miss her, my wonderful friends, and the whole seminary community.
I haven't slept well this week so we will see how that goes. I used to be able to sleep anywhere... now I NEED to be snuggled up to my man. I am not sure my friend Lula will appreciate that:)
Praying you all have a blessed Friday!
