Moving, moving, moving

For the last week or more we have been boxing and moving our stuff to our new house.
You never realize how much stuff you have until you move it. Will be glad when its all over.

As I write, Joey and I have only 3 days left of our old job.  There are alot of emotions but one thing that never changes is God's faithfulness. Hope to put up some pictures soon. 
New email  

Happy New Year may you feel God's nearness in the coming year.

Job interview

Today I met with Rhonda from parkview who is a nurse practitioner.
In January there is a new heart unit opening up with just 12 beds.  Which means more quality care for patients.  I was offered a 7pm-7am 3 nights a week which is considered full time and would only have to work about 1 weekend a month.  If everything keeps going as planned I would start around Jan 19th.

Thanks for the prayers, 
Stay tuned for updates

God is at work

Hi everyone,
Since I wrote last, I have a job interview tomorrow at Parkview Hospital.

It's amazing how God can weave the pieces of our life together if we trust and let go.

Thanks for the prayers,

When God closes a door

Hi everyone,
It is with mixed emotions that I right this blog.  As of January 3rd Joey and I will be moving on from GW.  I am looking for a nursing job in the area and Joey is looking for something with landscaping.  
Please pray for God's guidance in our life in this time.  Sometimes the mountain looks big but God is bigger than anything we see in front of us.  
Joey and I feel God closing the door hard on the ministry that we have been doing for 4 years and has other plans for us although we don't see what they are.
I am reminded of 1 Timothy 1:7  God does not give us a spirit of fear...

Happy Thanksgiving!

Haven't written in awhile. Had a great 4 days off. 
Went to a scrapbooking retreat and got 30 pages completed.
Nothing new on the adoption front. Some days feel longer then others, learning to 
trust God more and know that He is in control and knows best.

Till next time

Another week

Well, its another friday night and we are on duty with 7 teenagers. It's cold and rainy out, so can't
do to much.  
This week in bible study we learned about blessed are the merciful for they shall see God.  
It was a good reminder to me how much mercy God has shown on me and how even when a person doesn't deserve mercy that is when I need to show it the most.
Have a great weekend

On monday and Tuesday we were at the Grand Hotel for a marriage conference with Jay and Laura Laffoon, check out their website  Dr. Kevin Leman talked and gave us some great things to ponder and challenged us in our marriage. 
Back on duty, alot of sickness is going around here on the job. Trying to stay healthy.

Mackinac Island, MI

Tomorrow Joey and I leave for Michigan it is a much needed trip. This week has been extra 
stressful for some reason. We have been working for 8 days straight with troubled teens that could easily be some of the reason. 
Please pray that Joey and I may rest, relax and grow our marriage as we go to a marriage conference Monday and Tuesday.

Have a great weekend everyone,

Quiet times

Today we are on duty we normally have 7 teenagers however today the 3 girls are gone on visits. 
I am enjoying the quietness since my husband took the boys fishing. I'm learning in life to enjoy the quiet because it does not happen often. 

So a quote for the day: enjoy the quiet moments of life.
