Feeling blue

My friend Lindsay just called. She's on her way to the airport to fly to the Philippines to start her 11 month mission adventure.
I knew she would be calling; I was prepared. I still couldn't say anything to her. Everything came out high-pitched. I cried. We said good-bye.
It's no big deal really. She lives in LA. We only see each other once a year anyway. I just saw her. She'll be back in 11 months. We're on schedule. I still cried.

Smiles on Sunday-Late Again

This is my dear dear friend Lindsay who is leaving to travel the world for Jesus FOR A YEAR. She's leaving in 5 days. I just wanted to put a picture with Snickerdoodle because I'm gonna miss her A LOT. Check out her blog, she still needs cash and lots o prayers.

Also, I thought I'd include a picture of Snickerdoodle's new do. All the curls are gone for now. We're hoping they grow back.

I'm grumpy

grumpy grumpy grumpy grumpy grumpy grumpy grumpy grumpy

Doesn't make for a very good blog. Sorry to my fan(s).

I need to stop feeling sorry for myself.

Let's get some perspective!
a)I've got a wonderful loving husband and son. I love them more than anything and they love me.
b)I've lost 65 lbs! (without really even trying)
c)Jesus loves me and will provide even when we can't see the way.
d)That's pretty much all I need.

but ugh! it sucks when you can't see how it'll all work out.
Faith and surrender are tough.
I know that trusting in God is the only way. However, completely trusting is really tough.
It's tough to just give it all up. I want to know how it'll work out. I want to rely on myself.
But...that doesn't seem to be working.

Prayers needed

Above all else, I am asking for your prayers.
My deardeardear friend Lindsay is (hopefully) flying to the Phillipines in two weeks to start an 11 month journey to 11 countries to share the love of Jesus.
Please check out her blog and read all about Adventures in Missions

She is trusting the Lord that the remaining financial needs will be met within the next two weeks. I urge you to pray for her now and for the next year.
I also ask, if you are able, to help her financially (and soon.)

Thank you. She will be reaching so many people and touching so many lives over the next year. Please be a part of that through your prayers and generous donations.

Stupid Blogger

The laptop doesn't like blogger.
I can post but I can't leave comments.
Aggravating because I loved leaving comments but now if I want to, I have to get on the PC and that's a whole other aggravation.
So. Less posting. Less commenting. Boo.

too early to blog

I have been up for a while and it is still an unholy hour.
I think Snickerdoodle may be cutting a molar or something. He's woken up whimpering several times the last 2 nights.
And once I'm awake, it takes a long time to go back to sleep :(

So why not get on the computer?! That'll help! no. no it won't but I'm doing it anyway.

Anyway, here's a picture of Snickerdoodle from yesterday evening. He was outside playing with his crazy uncle and aunt and our wonderful friend Linz. This picture cracked up TheOldMan and I because it shows a side of Snickerdoodle's personality that only we usually get to see. He's an ornery bugger and now I have photographic evidence.
I should try and go back to sleep now.
