Where I’ve been!
February 27, 2007

Well, I’ve been gone for a few days from blogland. Not that I haven’t been visiting some of my most favorite blogs and even left some comments, but I’ve not been here. I did not post a SMART habit Saturday post this week because I was busy Saturday. Friday night was an all girls sleepover at my aunt’s house. Me, my daughter, my mom, my aunt, two cousins and one of my cousins daughters. We had a good time. The little girls stayed up past midnight and the floodgates were opened when they got really tired. But, they really did have a good time. I got a chance to talk to my cousin about some spiritual issues in my life and she offered some encouraging words and is letting me borrow some books for guidance! It was a great soul filler! 🙂

Hubby took my daughter to play golf on Saturday when we came home and it was just me and the baby for the rest of the afternoon. We played and rested and had some quality time. It was a good day.

Sunday after Church my husband went to meet with a man about a new job. He has been talking to this man for several months. Well, they finally made a decision and my husband accepted the offer. It is really scarey for him to be changing positions. We have been praying a lot about it and now we just have to have faith that we made the right decision.

This has opened up a whole new thing for my husband and I. See, we haven’t been on the same spiritual page for quite some time and it has been really hard for me. I prayed for guidance and for something to change this in order to open up the lines of communication. Well, this is just what I was hoping praying for. The new company is a company with Christian employees, many of which attend the same church that we do. The have prayer meetings once a week and they thrive on team work. I could just go on and on, but to make a long story short I won’t. The point is that this man prayed with my husband at their meeting and my husband really felt it. He said it felt like someone lay a warm blanket around his shoulders while they were praying. We’ve now begun to talk more about our spirituality and where we want to go with it. And, he even asked me to pray for him yesterday before he left for work because he was dreading calling his boss to let her know!

This truly was an answered prayer.

I wish I could write eloquently how this is changing our lives, but I’m not the best with the written word. I just wanted you to know why I’ve not been around.

Sunday’s sermon really spoke to me too. We finished a two-week series about work. And, that goes for those of us who “work” at home. Not for a paycheck, but for our families. This past week was about how bosses should treat their employees and how whatever it is we do we should do it with excitement and enthusiasm. Not for our boss here on earth but for our boss in heaven. He doesn’t care what we do, but how we do it and why! So, I got to thinking about how much time I’ve been spending on the computer and how little time I’m spending connecting with my children. Not to mention that I’m struggling with teaching them discipline ~ doing what you need to do even when you don’t feel like it ~ when I can’t seem to discipline myself. So, if I’m not around as much as before than you know why. I’m not taking a break from blogging, but I’m taking more time for my family!

To sum it up…we’ve had a very enlightening weekend! Please pray for us as we head into a new part of our journey!

Heart don’t fail me now!
November 30, 2006

scan0013.jpgActually, it should be Husband’s heart don’t fail me now. My husband had to be taken to the ER last night for chest pain, nausea, and tingling of the hands and feet. He has had a few episodes lately and he has seen a cardiologist. He was actually scheduled for a stress test next week, but that is where he is right now. We spent the night at the hospital last night so that they could monitor him. Crazy thing is everything looked pretty normal all night. He will have to wear a heart monitor for 30 days after the stress test. The only things they have seen so far are a right valve slightly enlarged which is not sounding any alarms. But, his heart seems to tack out during the day (we know this because he had to wear a 24 hour heart monitor last week) when he is under no stress. I am concerned, but so far they seem to think it may just be an arrhythmia and can be maintained with medicine. I’m heading back to the hospital in an hour or two, but wanted to ask you all to keep us in your prayers. I have such wonderful neighbors who came over and watched the kids for me until my mother-in-law got here to take them home with her. I’ve been having doubts about moving here, but God knew what he was doing and I thank Him for such caring people in my life. Thanks for reading and love to all!

 

*Update: We are now home and every test they ran came back good! Yeah! But, what is wrong with him? He has to follow up with his primary doc next week to get some GI tests underway. Thank you to those of you who responded and are keeping us in your prayers! I really appreciate it!
