Life is Short...

and so am i.

No one's ever seen or heard anything like this,
Never so much as imagined anything quite like it—
What God has arranged for those who love him.

i'm so excited to see what God has in store for us. i always thought that when i got pregnant, that would be it for me. i'd be a mom, nothing more, nothing less. i've had this vision of myself being the good mommy and wife standing in the background supporting my husband in his goals for ministry, but never really putting my hand to anything for at least a few years while i bear and raise our children. it seems as though God has other plans. i will still be a good mom and a supportive spouse, but in my own prayer time and in prayer with others, i have found that i will put my hand to more than my baby's butt. i'm not even really sure what it will look like, but i know God has a plan and i trust in that. it blows my mind that God would use someone like me and i never want to waste a minute of the time i've been given.

profound, i know.

there's a relatively new doughnut shop in howland and it's fast becoming my favorite. it's called the Fractured Prune - i know, a pretty unappealing name - and it's the only one in ohio! i guess it's growing pretty quickly, though, so if you see one go in and eat a doughnut. and don't feel guilty. it's delicious. i recommend the "morning buzz" or "o.c. sand". yum!
