We have been best friends her whole life but mainly since we shared a room when she was 3 years old, and as a music fiend I used to lock her in my room and JAM OUT to the Eastside Boys, Lil Jon, and I got her rapping to "to the windowwwwws" at 4 yrs old. Yep my mom was proud. It was the CLEAN version, okay!? Hello I was 13! :-)
10 years later, and we still crank the radio to the highest and
Anyway, back to faith! I was saying yesterday how I had missed Church last Sunday, and I have been itching to be in the house of the Lord and just be thankful! We have so many blessings happening in our little family lately. Scott's dad is doing really well at work and he finally found a place in Austin to live where he is by himself (no crazy roomates) and happy...
Another blessing to be thankful for... Scott has been working his butt off like crazy at Dell for over 2 years, literally being in the top 5 out of 400 sales reps on the floor, and we have gotten the verbal (not written juuust yet-but I just know) confimation of a pretty significant promotion that he has been wanting for so long!! He would be working in Specialized Public Accounts still at Dell, and working 2 days a week from home, and let's just say our last buddy that went into that position said it changed his life: He was able to buy his first home, get engaged, have a wedding, etc.;-) No, we are completely happy and fine where we are at together, I believe God will let us know in our hearts when we are ready to take our next step in our relationship. This promotion in Scott's life right now is just such a huge blessing! We are so excited to see what God has planned in our lives. I'm so happy and proud for my boo. :)
All of this constantly reminds me of how much Faith is just so important. I'm not the best at writing about my faith or how to live by God, sometimes I just get lost in a certain song that describes perfectly what I'm feeling, or verses that stand out to me. I love these little sayings I have found on Pinterest lately...
I am so in love with this verse.
I want to love this way. :-) I love these where you can find the scriptures accordingly.
I'm most thankful that I realize how far we've come. 3 years ago, Scott and I had bad jobs, barely made enough money to live comfortably, didn't have sweet Huxley, we fought more than I'd like to admit, we were irresponsible and made bad decisions that hurt ourselves and each other, and today we are so blessed with not just jobs but great careers, a gorgeous apartment, a cute fur baby, being more involved and a part of the Church, and being happy above all things.
This song by Kutless has been on my heart lately too as it is the best to listen to when you are in trying times, needing a little push of faith, or just grateful knowing that you AREN'T alone. My fav part of the song describse that with those same hands that were used in creating us and the world, we are lifted and carried by God everyday.
What are you thankful for lately?
