“Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for.” ~ Epicurus
This is a good reminder for me as I am counting down the days until summer, looking for a job and possibly a new place to live. I have a lot of things I am looking forward to but I also need to remember all the blessings I have to be thankful for! :-) Hope those of you who actually still get on here and read this are doing well!
"Do all things without grumbling or disputing; so that you will prove yourselves to be blameless and innocent, children of God above reproach in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you appear as lights in the world."
I LOVE how long the sun stays out these days. I still had time to enjoy the sun light after I get home from work and the grocery store today!
I am thrilled that today was TAKS and that means I am through with all of the "teaching for TAKS" and extra hours of TAKS tutorials each week!
I am so excited that I only have 28 days left of school... I can't remember ever being more excited for summer!
I am thankful that Travis and I got to spend three full days at my parents house this past weekend, we hadn't been able to do that in a while.
I am blessed.
Lois Starling- We recently found out that Travis' grandma has cancer all throughout her stomach and abdomen. Please pray for her and our sweet family, she means so much to us!
Craig Clanton and Pat Riley- Two of my friends' fathers are struggling with their battle of cancer. Please pray for God's comfort during these difficult times.
Bill Etter- Please pray for my grandpa and my family as they help take care of him and various struggles they are dealing with.
My sweet sister- she is leaving soon to study Spanish in Costa Rica for 6 weeks this summer!
Wisdom- We have been planning on buying a house this summer but my job situation is unknown... please pray for wisdom while making these decisions.
Bless the Lord, O my soul,
and all that is within me,
bless his holy name!
Bless the Lord, O my soul,
and forget not all his benefits,
who forgives all your iniquity,
who heals all your diseases,
who redeems your life from the pit,
who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy,
who satisfies you with good
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's.
The Lord works righteousness
and justice for all who are oppressed.
We woke up to lots of snow today. The sun has been shining and the snow is sparking, it is beautiful! It is almost two in the afternoon and there is still snow covering the rooftops and all of the cars in the parking lot. I didn't have to work and Travis was able to work from home so it has been a great day! I am thankful for our warm apartment to shelter us from the cold. I am heading to Tomball to visit my family and a friend for the weekend. I am glad to have the afternoon free to get a head start before the sun goes down tonight and the ice starts to freeze again. :-)
I hope everyone is dong well and staying warm!
"Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good; His love endures forever." Psalm 107

I am so thankful for these two weeks off!!
Love to you and yours!
Praise the LORD, my soul,
and forget not all his benefits—
who forgives all your sins
and heals all your diseases,
who redeems your life from the pit
and crowns you with love and compassion,
who satisfies your desires with good things
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
Thanksgiving is only a few days away! I'm thankful that I have the whole week off of school!! :-)
Tonight we are driving to my parents house. We will be there Wednesday, go to Beaumont Thursday, drive back to Tomball Thursday night and watch the Aggies beat the Longhorns. ;) Then Friday morning we will get up early and drive to San Antonio. We will have Thanksgiving w/ Travis' family on Friday and stay in San Antonio until Sunday. Lots of driving but we're looking forward to seeing everyone.
I've been neglecting pleo lately because the only computer we have right now is Travis' work laptop. I hope everyone is doing well! I'm going to get caught up and read all the white names.
Hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving! :-)
