Thanks.

Thanks so much for your positive comments after my last rant. I must confess that the "defeatedness" has gotten the better of me, but not the best. I am still doing things, but I have been sleeping away much of the day which is not good for my contract job, (my regular job I can do at 3:00am if I want to), so I need to shake this right away. And Isabella continues to be in everything right away. She is in her bed for a "time out" for the second day in a row. (Do they even understand time outs at 15 months????).

I have however found the courage to pray for a miraculous-knock-off-your-socks blessing. I know that I don't deserve it, as we deserve nothing really, but I want it. I've been learning about holiness, which I'll post about after Bible Study tonight, and how it means being real with God. So I've been praying my heart out. Sarah did it and got a baby way after her childbearing years. There hasn't been any news or anything, but I've been praying. There is a great loss of passion here in our friend circle, which we've deemed PBS (Post Bible School Syndrome) as our entire group is Bible School grads waiting to be hired and that is hard after all the work you put into your degree.

The Elder's board at Georgetown meets on Thursday night and we were told we would know what they would be providing for us after that. As in we'll know how many hours Nick will be expected to be there and his job description and his pay. So at least we'll know something. I think that will put the stress in perspective a bit.

I just wanted to say thanks for the prayers, I do really appreciate them and I'll let you know if that blessing ever gets here.

You know that I am praying for full time, of course. But whatever amount of time Nick is given I know God has a plan. I wish I could twitch my nose and the move would be all over and you guys were living in a nice house with a backyard and everything. It is a nice dream.

Prayers are still sent in your direction.

to answer your question no belle doesn't really totally get the concept of a time out yet!! usually they don't get that until they can talk to you and reason!!! But putting her in her bed for some time away...and a break from distructivness can be a nice break and breather for you to gain the patience to deal with it all over again as long as it is a very short time to distract her from playing in the toilet or whatever she is doing!!! that seemed to be nates big one putting the toilet paper into the toilet and watching it flush and laughing!!! ya it was cute the first time he discovered it but after that not so much!!!!
I will definately continue praying as they are making decisions and as you get ready for you move!!!!!
