Life

It has felt really strange for me to be "internet deficient" lately and I apologize for the lack of updating, to anyone that may still read my blog. Life has gotten away on me and with work being as busy as it is, I haven't even been able to write a quick post on my lunch breaks. I'm just about to leave work now but thought I should at least try to give you a quick update while I have a minute.

We've pretty much settled into our new home and are very much enjoying it. I won't be able to post the "AFTER" pictures until we get our internet figured out at home but I promise to do so as soon as possible. We still have a bit of painting left to do but with the crazy month that its been, it may not happen for a while still. Jon has been working LONG days in the attempt to finish up this last house with Todd before he leaves for Calgary. Todd has been staying with us for the last week (Brianne has already left for Calgary to settle into their new place) which has been great. Jon is thankful not only for his help on the house but the last bit of time they've been able to spend together as friends.

I've been very busy at work and based on the TERRIBLE day I had yesterday, it could be a LONG month :) We've started a lot of new projects and seeing as my boss will be taking most of October off, we have to work hard to get everything done before then.

I'm just praying for the energy to get through each day as I've felt pretty tired and discouraged lately. I know that nothing is too big for God to handle and yet, so often, it feels like my world is spinning out of control. I'm just so thankful for His sufficient grace and love in these moments.

Well... its already after 4pm and I really should sign off before I get any more work handed to me :) Hope everyone is doing well and I'll try to post something a bit more interesting soon.

Hi Bonnie,

Now I know we never actually went to school together, but I'm convinced if we did I'd want to be your friend. I often check in on your blog, and find myself encouraged by your words. Your honesty and ability to articulate thoughts into words is beautiful.
Just wanted to let you know that I'm thinking of you as your world spins, and praying that God would grant you courage to face the tasks at hand.

Hey Bonnie, Good to hear another update from you. It's really unsettling to move, especially when you're doing some fixing up, it's hard to feel like you have a 'home' to rest in. So that is my prayer today - that you will be able to feel peace, that you will find even a small moment to rest and find comfort.
Best wishes for your craziness at work...

Bonnie B,

I know that your little house is going to be so beautiful! You have a lovely decorating style.

I know what you mean about the world spinning out of control. Part of me thinks there is a moment or time in life where our eyes are opened to the effect of the fall. I don't know if that's what you're talking about here, but it kinda pulls the rug out for a while. I'm still waiting to land in trust. I'm just not there yet. Despite the big game I sometimes can talk. Sometimes I'm just a scared little girl.
