Our God is an Awesome God

I just want to say we serve an Amazing God. Who's plan are greater than we can imagine. He knows what is best for us, and orchestrated our lives to serve His plans, and worship and praise Him. Let us praise our Lord today for the works He has done this week. My life is so blessed because of my Savior who loves me, and I love Him.

Proverbs 8:17

"I love those who love me, and those who seek me find me."

What a day we have in Jesus!

I must start by saying that our God is so good! I have been feeling that this week is going to be an incredible week, and that is all going to start today! My heart and prayers go out to the Johnson's today, please lift them in prayer! God will answer those prayers today, with great expectations. Also I know that the Hamm's are waiting on paperwork today, My prayer is that they receive that today. We have been waiting on PA (pre approval from China). My God is so good and we just received PA about 20 minutes ago. I am so excited to announce to all of you my precious little girl EMILY......
Her birthday is August 29, 2008 (almost 11 months old), and her special need is Cleft Lip and Palate. Here is one cool part of her story, she is at the same orphanage that Kambry (Clayton and Connie's little girl) is from. Can you believe that, the entire country of China and we share the same orphanage between our daughters. How cool is that? Our little Emily is very little at that, she weighed 11 pounds at 6 months. Our entire family feel very blessed to call her our daughter and can't wait to hold her, hug her, kiss her, and just be mommy! All in all today we are expecting a Y E S (just pray for that), PA (pre approval), word from CIS (Hamm's) and LOA (Johnson's). That is a lot of the alphabet, but our God can deliver and will!

A Busy Week

Hello to all of you,

VBS is going very well. Tonight will be our last evening. We have been studying Peter and his faith, relationship with Jesus, forgiveness from Jesus as well. Tomorrow will be our program, the students are having fun as well.

Also tomorrow will be the "Gulicks" biannual Reunion. We have a reunion every 2 years taking us to Texas, Arizona and Oklahoma. This year it is in Fairview, we are looking forward to getting with some very special cousins that I have not seen in a few years.......

Most of all this week we are waiting on "PA" (preapproval from CCAA). It can come any day now and we are waiting patiently..... I want to share my little Emily with all of you, it is so hard to wait now. We now who a daughter is and that makes the wait even more difficult. This week has also been very difficult for our dear friends, Connie and Clayton. Please lift them up in prayers! We love you all, and hope you have a wonderful weekend!!!!!

We as a church are so excited about starting VBS tonight! Connie and I will be teaching 5th and 6th graders, which we have been doing for a few years now, but we love this age group. There is so much work involved with VBS, and many people are praying for the students, workers, teachers, directors, and our pastor. This is also the first year that both my girls will be helping and not attending as a student. Kaylee is the Kindergarten leader, and Ashley is the music director assistant. Both of them are very excited as well to be helping. And as for me, a mom, my heart is filled with joy to see my daughters serving the Lord, their church and community. Many thanks to our directors L and A for ALL the hard work they put into VBS. WTG ladies, we appreciate all you do! Must go know so that I can help Connie with prep work........ Have a great week, all of you!

Check our our new bathroom?

We finished our bathroom yesterday! I really liked the way it came out, it is a little bit of me and a lot of the girls..... They picked out most the decor and the pattern themselves. It was time for a change, and I really like the change...... The girls really like it as well, and David even said that he liked it too. Enjoy the before and after pictures:

From This:

To this:

To the final stage:

From This: Notice the not so updated light fixtures! We changed those too, one of my happy moments in life.

To This: This taken after 6 hours of stripping wallpaper..... Never want to do that again except for one very special friend.....

To This: TA DAH!

From This: This one is the most dramatic!

To This: notice the mounds of wallpaper!

To This: new paint

To This: the final picture, and we are done!

This is one is just for the new light fixture! I'm so excited to have it, and the girls said you can see, just don't look directly into the light because it will blind you! I tried and it does :) We will enjoy this bathroom for many years to come.....

I must be nesting!

We (me and Kaylee) started a project today...... We have needed to redecorate the bathroom since we had the garage sale. Sold all of our decor to a very special lady, who put it in her bathroom.

So we headed to Enid to buy paint and supplies, but the big purchase was the primer that would paint over 25 year old wallpaper. Was very excited that we did not have to take wallpaper down. While we were in Enid we ran into some dear friends (Tina, Ty, and Aidan) and they went to Lowes with us, bought the stuff and for some reason they wanted to help. We came home, taped off the walls, and began to prime wallpaper........ Why we were surprised when it didn't work is beyond me. But it didn't and as much as I didn't want to we were stripping wallpaper........ AHHHHH! The project ended around 10 o'clock, and we will paint tomorrow.

Kaylee, Tina, Ty, Ashley and my sweet husband David, thank you so much for your help, I really appreciate it! Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!

I will show before and after pictures later

4th of July Celebration!!!!!

Hello all, hope you had a wonderful time with family celebrating our freedom within our country, and our freedom of being able to share the gospel, love our Lord out loud, and pray in schools.....

We had a great time at my parents celebrating with my parents, and brother and his family, and my Grandma! We had tacos, and played Rock Band, dominoes, and shot fireworks for at least 2 1/2 hours! We caught up on old news and learned new things as well. Really enjoyed the time, oh yea by the way, I got 100% while I was singing on Rock Band!!!!!!!! Woo Hoo, I rock!

Amber, Kaylee and Desiree' (my nieces)

Gives with all your heart!

Yesterday I was reminded of a parable in the bible. In Mark 12:41-44 it tells of a widow women who offers a small offering (in our eyes) while a rich man offers a large offering. Jesus says, "I tell you the truth, this poor widow has put more into the treasury than all the others. They all gave out of their wealth: but she , out of her poverty, put in everything-all she had to live on. Mark 12:43-44 Now this person who came by to see us yesterday was not poor, but was a teenager and gave us a donations for our adoption. When handed to me, my heart melted, because I knew she had given from her heart, not her wealth. What a special gift, one that I knew is truly a gift of the heart!!!! Thank you so much my sweetheart, may you be blessed as much as we were!!!!

Someday~ But hopefully not to soon!

SOMEDAY WHEN THE KIDS ARE GROWN, things are going to be a lot different. The garage won't be full of bikes, electric train tracks on plywood, sawhorses surrounded by chunks of two-by-fours, nails, a hammer and saw, unfinished "experimental projects," and the rabbit cage. I'll be able to park both cars neatly in just the right places, and never again stumble over skateboards, a pile of papers (saved for the school fund drive), or the bag of rabbit food---now split and spilled. Ugh!

SOMEDAY WHEN THE KIDS ARE GROWN, the kitchen will be incredibly neat. The sink will be free of sticky dishes, the garbage disposal won't get choked on rubber bands or paper cups, the refrigerator won't be clogged with nine bottles of milk, and we won't lose the tops to jelly jars, catsup bottles, the peanut butter, the margarine, or the mustard. The water jar won't be put back empty, the ice trays won't be left out overnight, the blender won't stand for six hours coated with the remains of a midnight malt, and the honey will stay inside the container.

SOMEDAY WHEN THE KIDS ARE GROWN, we won't run out of toilet tissue. My wife won't lose her keys. We won't forget to shut the refrigerator door. I won't have to dream up new ways of diverting attention from the gumball machine . . . or have to answer "Daddy, is it a sin that you're driving forty-seven in a thirty-mile-per-hour zone?" . . . or promise to kiss the rabbit goodnight . . . or wait up forever until they get home from dates . . . or have to take a number to get a word in at the supper table . . . or endure the pious pounding of one Keith Green just below the level of acute pain. Yes, someday when the kids are grown, things are going to be a lot different. One by one they'll leave our nest, and the place will begin to resemble order and maybe even a touch of elegance. The clink of china and silver will be heard on occasion. The crackling of the fireplace will echo through the hallway. The phone will be strangely silent. The house will be quiet . . . and calm . . . and always clean . . . and empty . . . and filled with memories . . . and lonely . . . and we won't like that at all. And we'll spend our time not looking forward to Someday but looking back to Yesterday. And thinking, "Maybe we can babysit the grand kids and get some life back in this place for a change!"

Could it be that the apostle Paul had some of this in mind when he wrote:
"I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am."
Philippians 4:11
