Blue Skies are Gonna Clear Up

Today was a good day. I admit that it didn't start out that way...long class, confusing class, frustration, and still more class to think about (we are at the school from 8-5 most days, so its my job, my long job). So, I'm allowing this day to pass by in its usual crummy way, when I get a text message from Robert. He went to a job fair for a company that runs those big windmills you see on the side of the highway. We are convinced they are taking over the earth... These things have become quite popular to the government and energy companies b/c its good clean energy that this dying planet needs. We have become fascinated in them recently and Robert figured they would be an interesting job. So at this job fair he starts talking to the people and they decide to give him an interview. I could make this real long about how the interview went, what was said, but I don't remember and it really all boils down to that they offered him a job right there! I couldn't wait for my lunch break so I could call him and get the scoop- actually I think I was the first out of the room... But yay! In December his old job from Midland decided that they didn't need him anymore so we have been praying for something amazing since God always has a purpose for everything and today we got our answer! How wonderful and marvelous that we have a God who loves us enough to take the time to listen to us individually. He may not always talk loud enough to us, but He always listens and never once turns his back on us.

Thank you, Lord, for being there for us and for putting us where you want us, even though we may not see the point or direction, you always know best.

Oh, this job will require some travel, but I'm not worried. We were long distance for 4 years before we got married and I'm so busy with school that it might help me focus a little more. I think Robert will be starting next week sometime, but don't quote me on that... Just keep praying. And now I return to studyland b/c I have three tests next week and its starting to be crunch time. Good night everyone.

This is only the beginning

So today I realized how cool these things are...

I come home from school most everyday with a million things on my mind. Often times I think I could write a book with as much stuff that is running through my it may not be the most interesting book to some people, but its my (and my husband's) life. So this may not go under blog of the century, but I figured for our friends and family who don't get to see us/talk to us often that it would be a great way to keep them informed. And its a blank canvas for me to unload these random thoughts just dying to jump out of my head.

So for now this is the beginning of the Fowler blog and all the exciting, not so exciting, and off the wall things we will go through.

And to start off, here is a rundown of just where we are right now.
We got married on the fabulous and perfect day of June 2, 2007. Just shy of 8 months ago, and still newlyweds going strong. We live in a not-so-exciting town in Texas, but for temporary yet wonderful reasons. I just started PT or Physical Therapy school last September. All I can say is woah and that you will be hearing all about it. Robert was working from home, but is now pursuing to follow God's lead to something hopefully greater than where he was. He also works part-time at Red Lobster (I like to call just the Lobster) which is somwhat fun, but needed for our little family of 2. And thus we live each day for Christ, in great expectation of what each new journey holds. We are the Fowlers.
