Jumbo Jett

Jett's trying out his chair. He finally has enough control of his head to use this thing every now and then...he is also showing off his size TWO diaper. Such a big boy!

The Sweet Life

Last night, I had the privledge of sitting under an incredible message from Chrissie Dunham at a women's event at our church. It was such a refeshing experience, but also very challenging. I've been asking God to teach me something new. Something that will really challenge me, and He did. He taught me probably the most important thing that I needed to hear and know right now, which was how to have a "Sweet Life."

Here are the 4 ingredients to have a Sweet Life:

1. Be aware that God is good! Psalm 34:8 "Taste and see that the Lord is good."
2. Trust God "Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him."
3. Fear the Lord "Fear the Lord, you his saints, for those who fear him lack nothing."
4. Seek the Lord "The lions may grow weak and hungry, but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing."

I want to have the Sweet Life. I pray that you can experience the Sweet Life as well!

I'm an Unfaithful Blogger

It has been over a month since I've blogged last. SO much has happened since then. We've been to Dallas several times. We've moved. And of course, being a mommy requires a little bit of my attention.

We moved the week before Christmas, and we love love love our new place. God has been so faithful to Patrick and I. As some of you know, we are apart of the CARES ministry. We basically live in an apartment, serve the community we live in, and are able to minister to our neighbors while doing it. The last community we served at canceled the program in the middle of our 2 year commitment. We were relocated to a new community to serve as the CARES Team. So far everything is going great. Patrick and I really feel like this is home for us, and are praying that we will be able to complete our 2 year commitment here.

Jett is changing so much! He is smiling more than ever. He is active, and very LOUD. He has definitely discovered his voice. He discovered it a few days ago, and yes it is cute, but not in the middle of the night. Speaking of the middle of the night...he loves waking up SEVERAL times at night which is a new thing. For the most part, Jett has been a great sleeper, but lately that's all changed. Some nights he wakes up once or twice...other nights he decides to wake up every 45 minutes which is so exhausting. It's kind of hard to imagine that one day he will sleep through the night consecutively. Oh how I hope that day is near...Here are a few recent pics of the growing boy.

Hopefully, I will become a faithful blogger...but let's just say blogging more wasn't one of my New Year's resolutions. : )
