Well summer is here again! The semester is over, but still waiting on grades. We were made aunt and uncle on May 10th! My sister is a high school graduate as of last night! We went home last weekend and Phillip preached and we are going back this weekend to (FINALLY) meet the nephew. Still don't really have a belly yet, but we are 5 days away from being halfway! We find out on Tuesday what the sex of the baby is (a girl) so that's pretty exciting. Phillip has been working his tail off outside in 90 degree heat to help out. I found the camera so I hope to discover how to start posting pictures on here. We watched close friends graduate from seminary and now we get to watch them move on to what God has planned for them. Exciting and sad all at the same time. We saw a good friend over the past weekend, that we truly miss, and got to catch up a little which was awesome! Now we're ready to see his family (and him again)! That's all for now!

The Past Month, OK a Little Over That

So in the last month we have been to Nashville twice, sold a car, heard our child's heartbeat, gotten one step closer to closing on our house in Nashville (selling it), been really sick (morning sickness), watched dear friends move far far away, and other various and sundry items.

It's been really busy! Phillip is wrapping up this semester. Exams start soon and then we will be down to one year left here in the STL. Time flies by so quickly. It's very strange, when you're little you are completely unaware of time but then one day you wake up and realize that you have grown up and are experiencing things that you had only witnessed before. We saw some friends last night. Some are graduating and moving on to whatever the Lord has planned for them next and some we will get to have another year with. Wow! There's that time thing again!

I have been learning new things in the Lord. We have been shown so much lately in struggles, personal relationships that have fallen, and just living life together. I have been convicted of so much lately, not of things that I'm doing or thinking but of things that I'm NOT doing or thinking. Like, the question was asked, do you love God enough to forgive others for wronging you? Do I? Why haven't I stopped to realize that if I hold a grudge, I am not showing God's love? I have been forgiven of so much, why can't I look past personality flaws? Things I've been tossing around.

That's all for now. I could go on forever.
