Short post

October is almost over and November will be here in just 2 days. Kristen will be 19 on Monday! As I said in my last post, my decision is made, now it is all in God's timing.
Learning to wait, in many areas on my life... waiting at work, waiting at home, waiting on Him.
My brother is in China again so please pray for safety and for Amie and the kids while he is away.

God's timing

Decision made, but I can't get into it just yet. I feel at peace with it and Greg and I both agree that we're in a different stage of our lives as the kids are older and very independent. Sorry, this will all make sense when I can finally reveal what's going on. I'm waiting on things to happen at work, that are out of my control at the present time. And yes, this decision is work related.
Today is Michael's birthday. He would be 23! Greg and I will be heading down to place some flowers. We know he's in heaven but placing flowers is more for our benefit.
Mom and Dad are in Florida with Aunt Gail and Uncle Earl so Greg and I have Spike and Patch. They are not used to waiting on our unique schedule so it's a little more difficult. Max is so used to just "going with the flow". If I work 10 hrs, he eats when one of us gets home. With Patch and Spike, we have to make sure someone is there to feed them and let them out.
More to come...

Finally Friday

Love Fridays! Even when I'm on-call the weekend, still love Fridays! This will be a short post. I have a major decision to make and am really praying for God's direction. Not getting into it yet as it is confidential at the present time. I want to hear His still, small voice LOUDLY in my ear! Please pray that God would give me wisdom in this decision and that I would keep my heart and spiritual ears open to His leading.
No major plans for this weekend, maybe going to get a pumpkin. Fall is here and I'm thoroughly enjoying the cooler weather.

Beautiful Fall!

Sorry for the lapses, sure wish I could say it's been because I've been away on some exotic trip! No, just my busy life. Some exciting changes occurring in my life over the past few weeks.... Greg and I started a small group with our church. This in itself is exciting as Greg has not been brought up as I have and has never been comfortable with the concept of small groups. Our church started "Gro groups" which focus on what was taught from the pulpit that Sunday and expound and dig deeper. We've just begun the book of Phillipians and what a joy to dig into that encouraging book! Anyway, Greg is participating in group, which is a miracle in itself considering his initial comments to me were "Do I have to say anything?"
I'm excited to attend the Women of Purpose conference in Hershey in November! God worked that one out for me. I won't go into detail, but I actually get to attend this year. I'll be rooming with three women that I don't know, but am looking forward to making new friends.
Max tore his ACL while at the cabin 3 weeks ago. ACL= anterior crucial ligament. We had it surgically repaired and with 11 staples still intact, he is hobbling around. Staples come out this Friday. In 2 more weeks, we take him back to the vet that did the surgery, in Wilkes Barre, and then Max starts therapy on that leg! Can anyone else see money flying out of the wallet?!
Kristen had all four impacted wisdom teeth out (just days before Max's surgery!) She was a trooper!
We've been to the cabin as often as our schedules allow and actually went up 2 weekends ago with my mom's cousin and her husband, mom and dad, Greg and I. We had a very relaxing time and thoroughly enjoyed! Kristen was trying to get some friends together up at the cabin the end of October.
Took enough of your time! Enjoy the beautiful colors of fall!
