Vegas or Bust

And so the summer festivities begin. This week has been V.B.S. for our church and it is always awesome to see the glee on such little faces, so excited about Jesus and so excited just to be kids. On a bittersweet note, I took Pete to the airport today for a wedding that he is in this weekend in Las Vegas. It was hard to see him go! I haven't been away from him for more than two nights since we have been married, so give me a break! Anyways, the reason I'm not joining him is because I am, quite unfortunately, still in summer school. I am hoping to visit some family while he is gone to pass the time. Come July 6 ot 7th I am visiting some long-lost family moving to the states from Belize, and can't wait to catch up with them and spend time together while they drive up the coast. As for summer school, I will be finished July 16th and can't wait to seize the day. At the beginning of August we will be joining our highschool group in counseling them for their summer camp, then a wonderfully FREE Phil Wickham concert August 9th (In Clearwater, LOOK IT UP!), and then off to California from the 10th-24th for a much needed vacation (on my part). The summer so far hasn't been a whole lot of fun, and has been blazing hot, but what else is new. Enjoy your barbeques and pools while you can folks!

Still Waiting for The Lord's Timing

This past couple of days have been rough. I (Kendra) have had a 102 fever and have had lots of time to think. Upon couch potato-ing it, I have had a chance to just do nothing and try to sweat out my fever, but have had time to meditate upon the Lord during this time. I've been able to pray more, and just dwell with the Lord and sit at His feet. We learned yesterday, that we will not be moving into the townhouse that we thought we were going to, due to a change in price. Such news was a little upsetting for the already weak and sickly wife, but I have come to accept it with grace, and am at peace with our decision. I know the Lord has a place for us, and although it's hard to comprehend his will, I am confident in His perfect timing. So to those of us out there today who are discouraged, let the Lord guide and He will provide. That's my prayer today.
