One for comfort...

Psalm 63: 7-8
"Because you are my help,
I will sing in the shadow of your wings;
My soul clings to you,
your right hand upholds me"

[trying to calm my pounding heart down] I'm finding comfort in this amazing scripture and I hope you do to. What does your soul cling to?

My heart is racing...

...I'm so excited! Not just for Friday to get here and for the reuniting with Robert (although that is top on the list right now:) but also for some amazing things God's doing in my life. I'm so ready to drop this "everything will be better when ___ (fill in the blank)" attitude and to start being serious NOW. I think often times we do this when things get hard... "well once I'm back home" or "when I get past this hurdle" or "when things slow down a bit"... we make excuses to delay the start of something that could be amazing! I admit to being in a slump while being away from Robert...its been the toughest part of our long distance history by far... but that really was no excuse for me to be so down on myself and my relationship with Christ. So instead of waiting or making another "when" statement...I took matters into my own hands and have been enjoying every minute with Christ, in deep anticipation, and in deep meditation. I'm just waiting for Him to show me something amazing... not that my everyday moments with Him aren't little amazings in themselves...but I feel that with me finally moving back to Midland and getting things started over with Robert (as in we get to start the honeymoon phase of marriage again and I'm excited)...I feel that God is ready to reveal some exciting things for us, and instead of just passively looking to the sky I'm going to get serious and seek after God's answers. Please pray for me as I'm currently walking... no, running down this path.

Are you waiting for something... are you currently in a "when" statement moment... stop waiting and get active! I'll be posting some awesome versus from my journey in the next week, but please respond or email me if you need some encouragement!
Hebrews 3:13
But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called Today, so that none of you may be hardened by sin's deceitfulness.

The last time to say Goodbye...

Robert was able to come see me again this weekend and I'm proud to say that when he drove away today that I didn't fall apart b/c this is the last time I will ever have to kiss him goodbye! Yes, we aren't guaranteed to be in the same town for every day for the rest of our lives...but in 2 more weeks we will finally be living in the same town without the long distance! I may have talked about this alot lately, but the last few months of this here and then gone again relationship we have had really took its toll on my emotions... so thank you for putting up with me!

So during this visit we took some time to go shopping, eating at awesome McKinney/Dallas places, and visiting with friends. AND Robert got to spend some time with his two loves... me and a certain Shelby GT Mustang:

No, it's not our car, but I just so happen to be staying at the owner's house who is gracious enough to let Robert drive it... I'm not going to lie... its fun :)

So now we are just counting down the 12 days left until I come home for good! Then we don't know where we will be living, but we will hopefully be able to find ourselves a home soon so we can celebrate this thing called marriage that we really haven't been able to in a while...

Till then, its fun times in McKinney!

Celebrate!

We got to celebrate our anniversary! Robert came to Dallas with his family so we could help his brother and sister-in-law move apartments...but it was just so convenient that it was our anniversary so we celebrated Saturday night at this very cool restaurant called Sambuca in Addison, TX. They always have live music there, which is usually jazz I think, but this night there was a band called Decades who thrilled us with popular contemporary songs...they were really good! It was so nice to spend an evening with my husband, and we are counting down everyday till I'm home with him for good! Now we just need a place to live! Enjoy these pictures of our celebration!

2nd Anniversary!!

Today is the day to walk down memory lane... 2 years ago today to be exact! I loved my wedding and would do it again in a heartbeat! Even more so I love my amazing husband and I miss him terribly... It has definitely not been easy the last 2 years...or even the last 7 that we have been together... but we owe it all to Christ for helping us stay together and endure the hardships, its so true that you can do everything through Christ who will give you strength! So even though we are apart (once again) on this blessed day, we will see each other this weekend and celebrate then. Although our celebration for today extends to us sharing a Chic-Fil-A breakfast together (over the phone, but regardless we are doing the same thing)...mmmm.

For now please enjoy these pictures that recap some fun times at our wedding! Have a blessed day today!
