Whelp. I turned 24 on Sunday and honestly, it felt no different than the day before. J bought me some beautiful roses that morning and threw me a dinner party with all of our friends who could make it at Outback that night. He told me last night he bought me yellow since I'm his best friend, what a sweetie.

Friday night, went out with some friends and went bowling and I bowled my very best game- a 126 (I'm listed as May, har har) I was super proud of myself. Although J, refered to on the score board as Jerm still beat me by 2 points.

Mom and I went and met with the baker for the wedding cake and we came up with some glorius ideas that are not only ridiculously amazing and will look fantastic but cheap as well. The baker is letting me make all of the cupcakes and she is going to ice them and make our cake topper! The price for this is more than 1/2 off! I'm leaving the details of the cupcakes a secret until after the wedding :) Lets just say there will be a variety!

I ordered our marriage counseling book yesterday it should be in the mail by the end of the week. I got it off of for $11.99 its called, "Getting Ready for Marriage Workbook." We're supposed to go through it and then meet with Dennis, our officiant again atleast twice before the wedding to talk through things that we might have issues with, work out the ceremony and pray, pray pray!

Last night and today I definatly felt more like a 24 year because officially, as of this morning J and I put in an offer on a house here in the Thrill. I was freakin out nervous while driving away from our showing yesterday, praying constantly asking God if this is what he wanted, to please give us wisdom to know how to handle this situation and to please bless it if this is of him. Lots of tears went down on the car ride to meet J for dinner to discuss what we wanted to do and then this Aaron Shust song came on and I was at peace, praise the Lord!

I am not skilled to understand
What God has willed, what God has planned
I only know at His right hand
Stands one who is my Savior

I take Him at His word and deed
Christ died to save me; this I read
And in my heart I find a need
Of Him to be my savior

My Savior loves, My Savior lives
My Savior's always there for me
My God: He was, my God; He is
My God is always gonna be

Yes, living, dying, let me bring
My strength, my solace from this spring;
That He who lives to be my King
Once died to be my Savior

That He would leave His place on high
And come for sinful man to die
You count it strange, so once did I
Before I knew my Savior
Those first few lines of the song really sunk in, as a human I really am not skilled to understand what God has willed or what he has in store for me. I know for sure that with our house situation, I don't know the outcome but I do trust my God and I know that what he has planned is way better than what I ever can imagine! I've learned this so many times as God continually shows me that I AM NOT IN CONTROL, HE IS.


  1. Awww..keep us posted on house. That one seems to be close to us too ; ) When you find your house, you just know. As soon as we pulled up in the driveway, I told P I wanted to live in our house. Then walked it and it was even better inside. Such an exciting time for y'all. We celebrate our 1 year this weekend, wow does time fly!

  2. Awesome song. I am going through a lot involving TRUSTING JC right now.... annnnddd this is such a blessing to hear that you are going through something totally different, but still learning the same lessons: HE is in control... and we just need to sit back and enjoy it because HE's got it GOIN ON girl :)

    Thanks for this !!!
