I'm Still Here!!

As you can see from how long it has been since I posted, blogging has not been on the top of my priority list. I just wanted to let you all know, in case you have been wondering, that Paul and I are okay and alive. We are busy with our same normal activities, plus a couple more that have been added on. Let me recap our last month very quickly for you...


Paul started teaching Grace Baptist's Church School PE program twice a week. He enjoys the children and challenge. He is still teaching Sunday School and leading song leading on Wednesday nights. We have also started to help out with the youth when they have activities and Paul is preaching this Saturday. Please pray that their hearts would be receptive and Paul would speak what God wants him to! His credit load is 17 credits and he is always busy reading for a class or completing long economic problems for another. He does however, find time to fit that gymnastics class in there! He his getting pretty good and has even completed back hand springs, back flips, and various other "way cool" moves in his class. He is set to commission sometime between May 29 and June 7, 2009 so that is exciting news! He had been working out almost every day of the week and we are both currently going together about 3-4 times a week. It is nice!


I have 18 credits and am staying busy. No fun classes for me, unlike Paul. :) One of them is quite the trial as it tries to jam multicultural bias down my throat. Good thing I have a good gag reflex! If I told you my teacher was a lesbian black woman that was racist towards white people, that should sum up the entire class for you! Oh well! This has been one of the only classes I have had that is this way; I am pleased with all the others. I am planning some trips to take this semester for the Collegiate FFA Program helping judge events and provide leadership workshops. I am currently the USU President of the that group. I made the Dean's list again - still trying on getting the Presiden't pin (two consecutive semesters at USU with a 4.0 and more than 16 credits - only about 60 people in the entire university attain it each year). I am still teaching Junior Church every other month with another lady, play the piano alternatetly with two other ladies, and do nursery at church. That's about it for me!


We are so blessed! Sometimes I just stand back and look at all that God has provided for us, and the ability to do activities, and I am amazed. Through this economic hardship it is easy to say to keep looking to Christ and trust in Him, however, I challenge you to live it. I know that is one thing that Paul and I are working on this year...putting our trust and lives in God's hands. Easier said than done!


P.S. I will post pictures soon of some acitivities that we have done recently. I have to say it for accountability! ;)

Hey girly! Tough teacher, huh? Dad would say that she has quite a cockabur in her saddle! (Not sure about the spelling on that one). Hope the other classes make up for it though! My classes are going good so far!
