It's Wednesday! My lab day. The day that I study hard all my cardiac notes to prep for my next big test. The day that I drink two cups of hazelnut coffee with Cinnabon creamer. The day I learn about nutrition in class. And then go home and make beef fajitas for dinner. Bring on the sauteed bell peppers!
This week has been CRAZY. I'm learning to live like crazy because life is just non-stop right now. Yesterday though, was pretty fun. :-) David had the day off and I only had lecture 'til one thirty so....we came home and had hamburgers outside on the picnic tables. (However I ended up sitting on the sidewalk next to the picnic table because I was so cold in the shade....there was lots of sun on the sidewalk lol :-)
And then we went to the park and played frisbee for like an hour. THAT was fun. May or may not have included leaping onto park benches to make dramatic frisbee-hurls. And *someone* was having a seriously fun time cartwheeling down the grassy hill!!! And it wasn't me lol!!!!!
Over the weekend the car broke down. :-( Dear old "maxi" has been so well behaved but....she let us down. At the beginning of our relationship we decided that she was jealous of David having another woman in his life, hence the occasional car-issues. Not that we're married I think she's resigned herself to not being first in his life anymore......lol
Thankfully David was able to fix it. My childhood dreams of having a "mechanical husband"most definitely came true!!!! haha !
It's been super nice outside recently, I LOVE being in Sierra Vista. And I can't wait for Thanksgiving this year! Not only because of all the yummy food and getting to celebrate it with both our families, but also because Jonathan will be here for it!! Yay!! He got leave to come back from Germany for a few weeks. I can't wait :-)
I'm fast learning that trying to juggle being a full time student AND a great wife means I have no spare time. (Well, I'm never bored anyway!) And with that, I'm realizing that spending time with God doesn't have to be a 4 hour every day event (though that would be nice). I'm learning that He isn't ONLY found in the quiet afternoons where I have nothing to do and can read my Bible for hours. He isn't only found when I'm carefree and have all the time in the world.
More realistically, actually, He's found in the stuff of everyday. The busyness. The life part of it. Where I have a million things to do and only a few hours to do them, and I'm stressed out and pretty much totally fried - that's the opportune time to lean on Him and recognize His presence. To be still, and know that He is God.
And my wonderful husband here is constantly a blessing to me. I love being married!!!! It's more wonderful than I could have ever imagined.
