Random updates

1. We are now officially Alabamaians - we went to the courthouse yesterday and got our licenses, transferred our titles, registered to vote and applied for a homestead. Don't ask why it took us this long ... something about not having a permanent address ...

2. It was our 8th anniversary yesterday - we celebrated by going to the courthouse and doing all of #1 :) John had to be at work until about 7, so we decided to just have Mexican at home.

3. Adding to the wildlife list - I saw 2 foxes the other night. They were very cute. I also saw 2 deer on the way back from a jog.

4. Hadden (while he was laying in bed thinking): "Mom, which way does the earth rotate?" Mom: "Honey, you need to ask your Dad, but not right now"!!

5. Savannah (after hearing the weather report of "isolated storms"): "Mom, does that mean hail?" She obvioulsy heard "ice-o-lated storms"!

6. We are hoping to have some driveway road work accomplished this weekend. We are trying to rent some equipment and finding a lot of roadblocks (no pun intended). I am also struggling to find a well driller - anyone know any near Birmingham, AL?

7. I read the following segment of Scripture in the Daniel study that I am doing and it jumped out at me ... especially the last verse. It is one of those that begs for me to study deeper.

Romans 11:29-32
for God's gifts and his call are irrevocable. Just as you who were at one time disobedient to God have now received mercy as a result of their disobedience, so they too have now become disobedient in order that they too may now receive mercy as a result of God's mercy to you. For God has bound all men over to disobedience so that he may have mercy on them all.

In His Care,


  1. "Mom, which way does the earth rotate?"
