A little encouragement yesterday from my husband...

Still no jobs
Still no health insurance
Still no "home"
Still no whatever else you could ever add to this never-ending list

God is still incredibly GOOD to us 
I am loving however short of time I have with the juveniles this summer 
(Side Note: I had been praying for months for God to bring an opportunity for Dylan and I to serve a community of people even though we don't have a regular church we attend just yet.  ANSWERED: Dylan and I are serving side by side together, working with the juveniles!  It's kinda crazy how everything worked out.  I love it so much!)
Even though I want to be a unique Better Crocker in my own home, I am loving living with my parents, grandma and sister!  I love coming home from work to a full house
I have been blessed with an incredible group of high school friends!  We have hung out a few times each week and I am cherishing every moment with them!
The land I grew up on is soooo beautiful.  I have been taking pictures of almost every sunrise and sunset.  Amazing times with God during those misty bird-chirping mornings!

God is still amazing as ever and Dylan and I are blessed!

“When times are good, be happy; but when times are bad, consider: God has made the one as well as the other. Therefore, a man cannot discover anything about his future.” Ecclesiastes 7:14 (NIV)

Update:  This has been my prayer for the past few weeks

Do you know what it means to cling to the feet of Jesus?

I am not insinuating that I fully comprehend a lot of things on this earth, but I do seek to understand the reasons behind our circumstances

I have just noticed this was the first day I am thankful for Jesus on this blog...
Oh the prayer that needs to be sought after

Thankful for God's all-knowing, all-loving, complete just plan
I cling to the promises laid out in God's Word

The ups and downs of life infiltrate our marriage daily

Up: Dylan has health insurance!

Down: I do not have health insurance and am not eligible for Medicaid

Up: Dylan's Grandma has been a complete blessing to us while we stay at her house!  I only pray we can learn to be as hospitable and giving!

Down: Literally 50 other people applied to my dream job as I did...

I know God will open and shut many doors throughout our lifetime
We are learning to cope with the yes-s and the no-s
