So Many Wonderful Things!

There have been so many wonderful things happening lately!
K is home, namely :)

But we got our apartment and he will be moving in within the week. We also got to take our engagement pictures.
Here are the teasers Micalah sent us:



We took this one at Elmwood Park. Here's one more from there:



And, of course, it wouldn't be engagement pictures without a shot of my "bling"



It's crazy to think that in less than 2 months, we'll be married! I am just so excited!

Learning to Wait

This whole process of finding a full time, well-paying job is getting very discouraging. While I know it's only a temporary thing, it's very hard on my self esteeem
You're over qualified
You're under qualified
etc etc etc

It gets old.

But mom showed me an article today that helped put things back into perspective. It talked about how sometimes in your most discouraged state, is when God is planning to work the most.
It used the story of Mary, Martha, and Lazerus in the Bible when Lazerus died and Jesus waited to raise him from the dead. He could have prevented him from dying, but instead, he made them wait--and Mary had to make the choice to continue pouting or to trust her Lord
I want to be like Mary--able to stop pouting and to trust my Lord completely. It's really hard right now, and perhaps that makes me sound like I doubt my Jesus, but I don't....I'm just being honest

I know a job will come in time, but the closer we get to our wedding, the scarier it gets thinking that I will be unable to financially contribute to our marriage
but that's ultimately not what marriage is about
and I know he loves me regardless of what I can pay for

I am blessed to have an amazing fiance. Only 55 days until I am his wife....what a wonderful feeling
I can hardly wait

but again, I am learning to trust the Lord's timing :) 55 days will be here soon, as will a job, and as will a car

Back to "Normal"

What a blessing it is to have my darling home! I can hardly wait to start getting stuff ready for our life together--we're going apartment shopping on Thursday, and starting premarital counseling sometime next week...among other things

I love him so much and it's crazy to think that two months from now, I can call him my husband! What a blessing--I can hardly wait!

On a completely separate note, I can't stop watching this video:

Anxiously Awaiting

My darling graduated this morning from SFOC and is on the road home as I write this. It's crazy, thinking that the "distance" portion of our relationship is almost over (albiet temporarily). Words cannot express how excited I am to have him home again. I'd be lying though if I didn't say I was a little nervous--what's it going to be like to be so close in proximity again?
We'll have to re-build the routine, which hopefully goes smoothly--and I'm looking very forward to it!

Still working on wedding stuff. It's hard to believe we only have 64 days until we're man and wife. It's a little annoying though, not having people RSVP like we asked. It's hard to plan a wedding with that!

It needs to be Sunday---it's time to be in his arms again.
