Season of changes

releasing balloons.  looking up.  remembering our hold and all of our hope baby friends.
October 15th
National Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Day

We certainly don't need a special day to remember our son in heaven, though we love that there IS a day for the world to remember and learn more.  Holden and all of his friends in heaven are so very loved.  Three years ago yesterday, we joined the Midland Memorial Walk for Babies.  What a God we serve to change so much for His glory since then.

Green chili chicken chili is in the crock pot, my little love is couch napping, I'm ignoring the laundry in the dryer and the endless emails that need my attention... and acting like I have a few minutes to blog.  Let's see how long this lasts ;).  

This month has been probably the craziest season of change in our entire marriage (moreso than moving this summer).  We pulled Grey from the school she was at, due to several things, but mostly it just wasn't the fit we had hoped it would be.  That made me very sad, but we knew we had to be her parents before any loyalties to any place.  (Because of that, I am no longer teaching the Jumpstart Reading program there either.)  We trusted God knew what was best, and the very next day a spot at an AMAZING Christian Children's Day Out came open for her.  This is the best fit for our daughter, and Grey is so much happier.  She even cried when I tried to get her to leave the other day.  Is there anything better to a Mommy's heart?! :) The CDO just so happens to be at the church we are likely to become members at too.  God is good.

Nerium has been such a huge financial blessing to our family, that I certainly do not need to be teaching right now.  The hour or so I commit to Nerium each day has almost equaled the full-time salary I made at the college before staying home with Grey.  It's crazy to think I've only done this for three months.  Chet and I are so glad I started this fun journey.  I love that I can be a Mommy while contributing to our family in this way.
Yesterday, Chet accepted a position with a different wireline company.  He was offered quite a few positions this past week (he's pretty awesome like that!), so we had big decisions to make.  He chose the one that would allow us to stay here in Lubbock, which of course makes me very happy.  He will also get most weekends off...umm...we may not even know what to do with Daddy around that much.  PRAISING GOD!!  

I love how our needs are known by the Lord before we ever even know that we need them.  Grey is taken care of in the best atmosphere, and Chet's hard work and dedication have paid off hugely.  We are blessed more than we deserve.

So much to thank God for as we settle into our lives here.  
This fall and winter have wonderful things in store.

PS  I keep getting asked if I am pregnant.  The answer: no.  The top in the above photo is blousy and it was super windy yesterday.  Thanks for asking though. lol 

And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of His glory in Christ Jesus.  
Philippians 4:19
