Good news---God News!

 I'm bursting with God-news; I'm dancing the song of my Savior God- Luke 1: 46-47 (The Message)

Well, God did it again.  He provided Curtis with the wisdom he needed to make it through his Nurse Practitioning Boards and pass!  I knew God would carry Curtis through it and we had a lot of loving friends and family rooting and praying for him.  The hard part is finally over and he can now focus on paperwork and getting ready to start his new job in July!  

We went and got breakfast this morning at Panera before he headed out to take his test.  As I was driving home, I prayed again that God would be with him throughout the morning.  I remember feeling so bad for Curtis because I have been there.  I have had to take tests like that where your career depend on it if you want to move forward.  I am not a good test taker AT ALL!  I also felt so bad for Curtis because he has so much pressure on him to pass this test.

He has supported me and my decision this year to resign from teaching.  But, since I am resigning, if he was not able to start his new job we would be in some financial trouble.  So, he really didn't have much of an option but to pass.  Poor thing!  

Now that the hard part is over and he can be confident that his floor nursing job is coming to an end and he will be beginning a new phase of his career I am so excited about this new phase in life God has blessed me with.  I am looking so forward to be a mommy.  I have wanted this my entire life and now it is coming to real life for me.  We find out (hopefully, if baby cooperates) on July 5 what we are having and I can hardly wait.  I cannot wait to hold this baby girl or boy in my arms.  Everyone tells you to enjoy being pregnant because baby will be here in a blink of an eye. Now that most of the sickness is over, I am enjoying it more and more, but there is still that anxiousness of meeting the baby!  I can't wait.  

I have spent much of my summer addicted to Pinterest.  A friend told me I would get addicted and she was SO right.  I love that site.  I get so many good and cute ideas on ways to make me a better wife, mom and homemaker.  I have decided to try and tackle a new thing every other day.  Here is my newest project I would like to begin:

So cute

I hope I can do it!

When God closes a window, He opens a door

Well, yesterday I closed the door to room 504 at my school and realized I was closing that door of my life (lovely metaphor I know!).  I cried for a few minutes.  Teaching has been such a part of my life and such a passion of mine.  I am shocked that I am saying goodbye to that...and I don't know for how long, but for now that part of my life is over.

BUT...God has opened such a fantastic door for me and something I have wanted my whole life and especially after I met my husband.  I am truly blessed with the opportunity to be a stay at home mommy.  I know not everyone is given that opportunity and I am very thankful that God has provided this for me and my husband and baby to be. 

While I will miss teaching and miss the friends made along the way, I am so looking forward to this new chapter of my life.  I have a lot to learn, a lot to look forward to and a lot going on! 

YAY to new beginnings!!!!!
