Today I was just thinking about my life and how God has completely filled with it blessing. Seriously, there is not one thing I would change. I wonder, why me Lord?
I have such an amazing, caring, hardworking, goodlooking, godly husband who loves me and our boys unconditionally. I have the two cutest, sweetest, smartest boys in the whole world. We are all healthy and safe and love Jesus. I could go on and on about my family, but I already have before! :)
I love living in Chico! I think it's sad when I hear people say, "I live in x town, but y town is my favorite city in the world." Because, why the heck would you not live in your favorite place? I love living by both mine and Eric's families, they are SUCH a huge blessing to us! Eric's parents watch the boys for our cell groups and during the day and my mom watches them so Eric and I can go on dates and do special stuff. And, we see my dad every weekend when he's here from work. I love the weather in Chico (no yucky snow!) and the trees and the park and the little bigness of it.
In high school and college I always dreamt of being a psychologist. I was a psychology major and I really wanted to be able to counsel and help hurting women. And, obviously, that didn't work out. But, being a cell group leader is a million times better. I get to do lots of counseling, but I also get to take it a step farther and be a part of womens lives healed and transformed. God is the doctor performing heart surgery, but I get to be the nurse watching and assisting in the process. (And, if you want to see it in real life check out Laura's blog - although her most recent post may not be the best example...haha)
In high school I was involved in the Christian club at school and in my youth group. It is so sad to see that most of my "Christian" friends are disillusioned (a post that I've been meaning to write for awhile) or lukewarm. I know that that could so easily be me, but instead, I am passionate for Jesus and the lost. I am seeing people be saved, delivered, healed, and filled with the Holy Spirit. All of my bestfriends are not just churchgoers, but people living victorious lives, like in the Book of Acts.
Although, we aren't rich (YET!) we aren't in lack. I am able to stay home and raise my boys and we have always had our needs taken care of.
