Since the last time I posted, we've had Christmas, started a New Year, and loads of other stuff. The main reason I've not been posting is because I usually sit down at our desktop and type and upload pictures, edit pictures, dig into my bible for inspiration, etc. But the desktop is on our bottom floor. Our bottom floor is FREEZING. There is really no way to get it warm down there and have it comfortable upstairs on the third floor or spend a fortune of heating, which the cheapskates in this home are loathe to do! I could sit down there wrapped in a comforter, which I have done before ;), but it's just not fun!
So I'm taking advantage of the laptop that's actually in my lap and jotting down a few words.
We have a "D.C" bucketlist. And my "we" I mean my "plan ahead, always prepared" husband. We will Lord willing, only be here until the end of this year, so that doesn't leave us a TON of time to get through our list! We've been checking things off one by one and really loving it!
We've hit "Fords Theatre" and the "Peterson House."
The Marine Corp Museum, which was fascinating and HUGE. We came across two different pieces of debris from 9/11. One from the Pentagon and one from the World Trade Centers. I was overcome. Tears filled my eyes and I went back to that moment when it happened. How that moment lead us to where we are today. Not just as a country, but our family. I know that those events played a huge part in our coming into the military.
We've been living life.
Working hard, playing hard, teaching hard.
We're working on Love.
Loving each other. And we know that its not always easy.
Sometimes it's even really hard.
But it's a command.
We can't escape it.
"O Lord, help us!"
Between school, church life, and family life, we've been going strong. Trying to balance all of these so that we are honoring the Lord and each other.
Grace and peace to you and yours!
