Mid August 2015

So much has been going on in the past month. Sorry I haven’t written in a while, just been overwhelmed.

Mike and I just went through a fight. Not a yelling type fight, but a strong disagreement that almost broke us up. See, I feel called to ministry leadership, and possibly to be ordained someday (currently licensed as a minister). His denomination defines ordination as for being a pastor of a church and only for men, my denomination says for ministers – not necessarily head pastors – and women are included. LONG story short, we’ve come to an understanding of the two differences and he’s in favor of me being ordained, just not being the head pastor of a church. Which isn’t something I really aspire to anyway. This almost broke us up because I didn’t feel like he could support and encourage me in what I believe God is calling me to, and if it came down to a decision between Mike and God, God was going to win. Looks like I get both 🙂

We spent last Saturday in St James, MO at the Vacuum Cleaner Museum (remember, he collects them). He had the time of his life, he was like a kid in a candy store. He only came away with one vacuum, amazingly, but it’s a really nice one. I spent some time at the winery while he did some stuff with the curator, Tom. We were still there from 10a until 4p. Yes, I am a girlfriend with a lot of patience, but it was for his birthday and i know he’ll never forget that trip.

My dad went into the hospital last Friday. Not to go into much detail, but his health had been deteriorating for a few months and got really bad. Mom called for the ambulance. He ended up being severely dehydrated, malnourished, anemic, and having a large bleed ulcer. He’s still in the hospital and they’re trying to figure out what else could possibly be wrong to set off the whole process. So far he’s doing much better 🙂

Getting towards the end of another semester. One more class closer to graduation!

Work’s been kind of slow. Our market is down and has been for some time. It should come up soon, just wish it’d hurry up and fix itself so we can get some material in here to run.

No progress on the short sale of my house just yet. Slowly packing up stuff I know I won’t need right away. Just in a place of not knowing is getting stressful. What do I pack, how long will this take, etc., etc? I know, trust God and His timing for it all.

Weight loss… how about gain? 😦 not doing too well in this area right now. It’s not about how I look, I just want to get healthy, but I’ve been stress eating.

OK, blah! Good news: getting an A in Theology 2 so far, dad’s health is getting better and (just found out) he gets to come home this evening, a lot of people care about my family and have been showing their love to us, and Mike and I are stronger in our relationship.

There, that’s a better way to end this post 🙂

I want to be as open as possible, safely anyway. If I've been set free in something, maybe I can encourage someone else to seek God and they can be free too!
