Because I like Sharing.....................

I just wanted to share a few things today:

1. This is Steve and Judy (with my brother and SIL)

They are in Nicaragua this week on a mission trip. Mission work is a passion of my parents and I love that about them. You can check in on their blogs this week to see what they are up to and you can pray for them if you think about.

2. While doing my "Stepping Up" Bible Study this week - we looked at a verse that I'm sure I'd read before but didn't mean much to me at the time. Right now I'm just reflecting on the goodness of God and His perfect timing. If you are in a waiting status now - just have hope in this verse - God has a plan for you!

Jesus replied, "You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand." John 13:7

3. I love this picture - we all had hog noses to wear. We didn't strap them on because we didn't want to mess up our hair. Hillary had planned for the whole wedding party to strap on the hog noses for pics but I think in the craziness of the day - we forgot. No matter how bad our team is - we LOVE THOSE HOGS!!!!!!

What a great verse!! I loved looking at all the wedding pictures. What a perfect spot to get married! You look adorable as a pregnant bridesmaid!!

Wanted to let you know that I didn't make that birthday outfit for Taylor (I think I typed that sentence wrong!) I only wish I could sew...things would be so much cheaper! I can't wait to see Harper's outfit!! You know...I thought Taylor's was going to be big and it turned out perfect! I'm definitely having her pictures made in it soon!

Wow, ok, so i'm in tears right now. that verse is soo meaningful to me right now in my life. Next month, Oct. 16 to be exact, will be the 1 year anniversary of us trying for a baby and last night i got really down and upset about that and questioned God. However, I knew this a.m. that He would direct me and show Himself to me and He has now, through you and this verse. thanks so much kelly. this means more than u know.

I heard about your blog from a friend and have been following it. I am due March 3, and I love to see where you are, how you look and what you are thinking. I have kept my own blog, but it's not nearly as expressive as yours. I appreciate your effort in keeping up your blog.

That verse = exactly what I need to keep remembering. I love it!

I will def be praying for your sweet parents! How neat that they are so involved with missions. They are awesome, and I know God will use them in a big way!

And the hog picture is so so so cute. Framer!

Such a great pic of your parents and brother & SIL.
How exciting to go to all the foreign places and to be helping others. I hope to be able to go on a mission trip through our church soon.
The hog nose picture is hilarious. I love the idea.

Praying for your parents and the others on the team in Nicaragua! Even though you know I'm a Gator fan...I'll give a Whooooooooo Pig Sooie for that picture!!!

RachelM said...

I will keep your parents in my prayers!
I did Stepping Up last semester and loved it! Thank you for the verse! You have no idea how much I needed to read that today!
GO HOGS!

Whitney said...

Great verse! Thanks for sharing it. Isn't it so hard to know that "waiting" is sometimes what we are supposed to do?! This verse makes it possible, though. Happy Monday!

Staci said...

Thank you for that verse, Kelly! This waiting thing is NOT the easiest :)

Meredith said...

I will pray for your parents! I know they will have a great trip! I love Beth Moore studies. Every one of them I have done I loved! The picture of the bridesmaids and Hillary is soo great!

April said...

I wish your parents safe travels and I know their message will touch many lives. I can't wait to hear all about it!

I really love the verse you shared. It's so perfect for what we've been facing with Chris' job loss and all. Thankfully, we're finally getting answers to our prayers and we knew that we just had to be patient...God knew what was best.

Your picture is too funny! So original! I love those HOGS, too!

Cindy said...
