Update From the Trenches

Have you missed me? I've missed you.

I'm afraid our computer D.I.E.D. three days past my birthday. Sad. I thought about draping a white cloth over it, but decided that might just be too much. Even too dramatic for me. We're working on restoring our computer. The good news is all my files are still alive and well. That's a true miracle since I'm pretty sure a mean old virus attacked our innocent computer. But, God protected our goodies, so we're OK. It'll just take a while to get everything sorted out and back online.

In the meantime, here's a very brief update on us. I'm still 30. Hee hee. Christmas is less than two weeks away and I have bought a total of one present per child. They won't be getting much more than that, but that's not what Christmas is really about anyway.

Jason has applied for a full time position with the Texas Air National Guard. We are hoping and praying this is God's will for us and that we return to the Mother Land soon. [All you true blue Texans know what I mean!] It would be so sweet to live near so many family members. The only downside would be leaving our beautiful church and also my amazing sister. Rachel would stay here until she finishes out her one year contract with the school. Anyways... Please pray God's perfect will.

Motherhood is... continually a roller coaster ride. One moment I am filled with love and joy for the little blessings and then the next moment I'm overwhelmed with their demands and cries. I know I'm not the only one who feels this way, but sometimes I feel so alone out here in the motherhood trenches.

Here is my scripture for today:
He lifted me out of the pit of despair, out of the mud and the mire. He set my feet on solid ground and steadied me as I walked along. ~ Psalm 40:2, NLT

I want to stand on solid ground! NO matter what comes my way.

So that's the update. Love you guys!

revolutionary love

I have experienced revolutionary love. Love with no strings attached. Jesus Christ loves me and made a way for me to have a relationship with the One True God. God desires a relationship with you, too. If you have yet to experience this revolutionary love, please email me at jandjkeys@hotmail.com so I can share this amazing experience with you.
