This may seem unrelated to anything but it has great significance to me. I get great time with God when I mow. I have at least an hour to speak with Him and have no real distractions! I pray for whoever I think of and whatever comes to mind. It is a terrific time. It makes mowing much more entertaining. Plus it gives me good God time :-) Next time you mow think about having a conversation with your Heavenly Father, the Lord of all, and the only guarantee in life! Also I am so thankful for my yard. Yes it can be a pain to have to go out and mow but I am so blessed for the property I'm on and the wonderful house God has provided for little man and me.
School starts at the end of August. I have found peace with the decision and it's all through Him! Accounting still seems scary but I know He will lead me. I can't just sit around and wait for something to fall into my lap. It doesn't work that way. Plus with not being able to find a job, attending school is really my only other option!
I was going to take five classes but decided against it since I'm just getting back into the grove of things. I will be taking accounting, math, speech, and a general business class that is a prerequisite for everything. I'm so thankful to be able to get just Tuesday/Thursday classes. It makes life much easier.
Little man was going to go to the sitter he was at while I had a job but sadly she does not have an opening once school begins. She was awesome too! And only a block away :-) I have found someone who can watch him though and I couldn't be more happy about it! It is a little out of the way but I know LM will be loved on so much and learn. The greatest thing about this new sitter is she is such a strong Christian. I know LM will learn good values while he is there. She has a daughter that is about four and a son that is two; so LM will have playmates his age! Not sure the ages of the other children she watches but I'm excited!
Speaking of LM, can I just say he is growing up so much! He is so handsome and I love being his mommy.
I will be away from him for ten days! I know it will be very difficult but the reason behind the absence is wonderful.
As I mentioned in my short post, I will be going on a mission trip. My first ever! With a group of about fifteen twenty-somethings, I'm going to Antioch, TN to help with flood disaster relief. Click here to see. We will be leaving this Sunday after a lunch at church and be gone until Sunday the 18th. I will post more about it once I've actually experienced it! Me being able to go is such a God move!
Also in my short post I talked about a bible study. I'm involved in a Beth Moore study called Breaking Free with college-aged twenty-somethings. It is a wonderful time to fellowship and know there are others out there my age who believe in our Savior Jesus Christ! We are on week four and it is such a great study! Because of this study I already know where some books of the bible are better! It has been a great way to get me in the habit of having quiet time with God.
Prayer request!!!! The single moms group starts on Sunday! I'm nervous but I know He will be the leader not me!
Here is a picture of my family from our family camping trip

The shirts were made by my lovely grandma grandma!
They are birds and each has a different theme.
