10 things that made me happy this week

1. Our growing group for the crusade!
2. My gf Cassandra bringing me a whole bag of Jose's coffee!
3. Diamond Studded Linings
4. Meeting with my mentor.
5. New 8 o'clock bedtimes for the kids. For some reason I though it was child abuse to put them to bed before like 9. Glad that was cleared up.
6. Prayer Night - Every word spoke was for me. Psalm 34
7. Reading a Proverbs a day. I'm on day 11 and so far it's all about using wisdom, seeking wisdom, wisdom wisdom wisdom. I love it, I def need those daily reminders to do things God's way and not my own way.
8. $1750 to the student loan and its under 20k!!!
9. Watching my kids kiss & hug and not try and kill each other.
10. Cleaning the carpets in 2 rooms. LOVE clean carpet!!! best part is that Josh and I did it together. Love being married to my best friend. God couldn't have possibly given me a better partner to go thru life with!

Sigh... if the diamond-studded lining you're referring to is mine, by any chance... it's a WAS. :-( I know God has a plan, but I sure am struggling with it....

Priscilla said...

Aww, Kim, I'm so sorry! Hang in there! God DOES have a plan. I'm praying for you!

Thanks Pricilla... I won't blog it because it's not the kind of crow I want to eat with my ex-H... after introducing our kids to him. (and my ex and his gf read my blog.) But after finding out my Love was in love with me, his ex-W started begging for another chance, that she wanted him back and loved him and guilted him about their son, etc.... and she somehow got to him and opened up some unhealed wounds and unresolved issues, so he's trying to work it out with her. Their divorce was one step away from being finalized. I doubt it'll work out, and I think he will be back... but I just don't know. I've completely backed off with no contact for the time being. So shattered. :( Your prayers are much appreciated.

Hi Kim (I'm Priscilla's friend...& obviously a nosy one at that) j.k I like to think caring...
I just want you to know that you're in my prayers too. God has knocked me time & time & again on my knees praying (where I need to be) things seem to go right & then wham I'm back on my knees again, b/c I veered off. I have been through so much but I'm honestly happier than ever right now considering my own tribulations that I've recently endured, all b/c I finally just gave it all to the Lord & he has in turn filled me peace & contentment. I know you have your faith just know that even in blog world you have friends & people in your corner.

I am so sorry that you're going thru all of this. I cant agree more with what Erika said. And we really are praying for you!

Kimberly said...

Thank you girls... sorry, Priscilla, I didn't mean to hijack your post! But your thoughts and prayers mean more than you can possibly know. Just praying for His will, which I really, really hope includes having the love of my life return to me, healed and unfettered. xoxoxo

P & E... thought you might be interested to know... and again, not blogging this for a variety of reasons... but after only 3 weeks, I'm back in touch with my hopeful diamond-studded lining... long story, but it didn't work out with them... he gave his best effort, she stayed in touch with the man she'd been with for the prior 6 months... they are done and over while we are not jumping back in to a relationship - he definitely needs time to grieve, heal, process, make changes he wants to make in himself - we are back talking regularly and went out on a date... had a wonderful time and I'm very hopeful for a future together when the time is right. :) Still praying, believing in the power of prayer, and the knowledge that all things work out according to His great plan. I so appreciate your thoughts and prayers! xoxo
