Long Awaited Updates

Hello, everyone!  Yoo-hoo!  Yes, I'm still here, trucking away with five kids and three dogs and one cute husband.  I know I haven't posted anything recently, and I am so sorry about that.  I will try to do better, I promise.

Baby Number Six.  I want another baby.  Crazy.  I know.  But babies are so cute and sweet and new and smell so good.  Even though I want another baby, I feel in my heart we are done producing human beings.  Instead, I long to adopt.  I long to give a home to a child who has none.  I don't know how that will play out for our family.  I just know it is my heart's desire and I totally trust the Lord to fulfill my desires as he promises us in his Word.  (Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart. -Psalm 37:4)

Mother working.  Yes.  I'm a working mom now.  Gasp!  But, I work from home so I am still able to love on the kids and kiss their boo-boos.  I am writing for clients on Elance and I love it.  I also work for my dad, designing websites for Bentchmark Computer Consulting. It is great working with Daddy; gives us excellent excuses to call each other.  He is a wonderful boss.

Marriage.  Jason and I celebrated TEN years together last month.  I love him more than I did then; and that is saying something since you all remember the newlyweds.  Jason continues to be my main squeeze, making my heart pitter-patter.

The Future.  We are praying and considering separating from the military.  We long to be home in Texas with our dear family.  There is much that has to happen before separation is possible.  We seek the Lord daily for his guidance and grace in all things, but especially in this matter.

That's all, folks!  Hope you enjoyed the updates.  God is a good God and he has great plans for his children.  We are humbled to called HIS.

God desires a relationship with you, too. If you have yet to experience this revolutionary love, please email me at so I can share this amazing experience with you. Blessings, -Jess
