Well its been awhile since I posted, its been such a busy Christmas I have not had time to post for awhile but a belated Merry Christmas to everyone, and a Happy New Year!
We just spent 6 days with Barry’s family for Christmas. Over all it was a good time for all and we came home feeling glad to be home. The kids god spoiled as they should have going to their grandparents. Barry got a job offer over the holiday’s, its in Edmonton and so it looks like we will be moving in the new year. We are waiting for some final details from the employer offering the job before we take it…..hopefully they will pay for our move, but other than that unless God does some major work in the next week it looks like we will be moving. Barry will probably go out to Edmonton and work for a few months before we move, that will give him time to see if he likes the job and for me to finish the internship.
Today is Barry and My 14th Anniversary……..we celebrated yesterday in Edmonton and today before we left Edmonton we stopped to visit an old school friend of Barry’s whom he had lost contact with. She was one of his best friends growing up and it was interesting to see her again. We found out today that her husband left her in May for another woman! We are just baffled because we would have never thought that about him, that it would be possible for him to do something like that being a Christian. We talked about it on the way home and we are realising more and more how many of our friends have had this happen in some way shape or form in the last few years….its spreading like the flu! Men leaving their wives for other women, women leaving their husbands for other men, and it all happening in the Church. We are very thankful today that we have made it this far and recommitted ourselves to being faithful to each other and to communicate with each other about our needs before anything like this can happen to us.
I came home to two very fat dogs! Both Emily and Molly got into the bag of dog food while we were gone, I am assuming that the house sitter left the bag of dog food on the floor and they helped themselves. In 6 days my puggy wuggy and gums galore got really really fat. So on a diet my poor dogs go tomorrow! They will hate it and I will get many sad looks because we are cutting back on their food.
Tomorrow we are going to My Mom and Dad’s for Christmas, I haven’t had any time to buy Christmas Presents for anyone other than my Mom so I kind of feel stupid but I will have to go shoping tomorrow on the way home from work so that I don’t feel like and idiot going over there for Christmas.
I am going to be singing and doing some leading for the first time at CDAC this Sunday, its really scarey cause its been such a long time it feels like. I would appreciate your prayers over the next week. I need to get my head around the fact that we will be moving and hopefully God will have something for me in Edmonton too. I really have to trust him with that!
Well that’s it for now! Happy New Year everyone!
