Revisions, Revisions Everywhere

Today is our anniversary. *smile* We've been married 19 years! I cannot believe that...but when Sweetheart asked me this morning what I was doing at that time 19 years ago I had no idea. Cannot remember at all what I did the morning of our wedding.

So maybe it's not so hard to believe that its been that long ago after all.

Well, nineteen years and I'm going to be the wife of a preacher. Our preacher and his family (our good, good friends) are moving to another state. That's a post for another time. We are going to miss them because not only are the husbands friends, the wives are friends. You know, as opposed to politely visiting with your husband's friend's wife? You have friends like that, right? No, we are all friends. AND ALL of our girls are friends. We hate to see them go, but all along I have been trusting God. Because I know He is able to work all things for good for those who love Him. He can work it for their good, our good, the church's good....all at the same time. He is that amazing.

But with them moving, that leaves our church without a preacher and S has been asked to preach. Mind you, he'll still be working his regular job. So, that is one reason why I was rearranging--to make a place for S to study and prepare sermons. We did that now but have I taken pictures? I have not. Later, OK?

Me. A preachers' wife. Huh. Still kind of wrapping my head around that one. I mean, S has always wanted to preach...but here we are. I always thought "one day he'll be a preacher" but I did NOT think, "one day I'll be a preacher's wife." I guess that one should have been obvious, but it didn't occur to me so much.

Baby Bee is 2 months old tomorrow. I know! She is so sweet and cute and we are all still totally in love with her. We HAVE been able to get some school done even though she is a great distraction.

Come on...math...or me?
Is it just me, or are there a lot of revisions going on at our house lately? I was looking back at posts from this time last year...wow. I was busy re-doing the school room...NO idea a baby was in our near future. Now we have 3 girls, no homeschool room, and I'm going to be a preacher's wife.

Stick around. There's just no telling what's going to happen around here next!


  1. Happy Anniversary Brenda and S!! :)

    And, happy 2 months birthday, Baby Bee! You are so very cute!! :) (And I would choose you over math ANY day.) :)

    Lol, love the revisions the Lord is making in your sweet family! Isn't it fun to look back and see His hand in everything?? Just thinking back to when we first "met"-- who'd have thunk it we would be where we are now??

    I just LOVE that you are a preacher's wife. You'll have to share the inside scoop about what that's like. :)

    Thanks for sharing, my friend!!

  2. Thanks for sharing the link to the pictures of your schoolroom...which is not your schoolroom anymore? right?
    I love your bookshelves!
    I am going to read your blog some more today to get some ideas.
    Thanks again!


  3. I am so thrilled for all of you. Wish I could move to Texas and attended your church.LucyT
