The Quiet Moments are pure bliss....

So, I made this blog months ago and completely forgot about it. I made it so that when Mark and I began our Journey together, our adventure, our new life, others could read and see what God is doing in our lives.

Things have been stinkin' crazy lately. My mom has laughed at me multiple times and said "You are definitly a bride-to-be " while I sit in a puddle of my own tears. In the last week we have moved into a new apartment, gotten car and health insurance, Mark has started 2 new jobs, Mark led worship for the last time at Faith and in the same day led for the first time for Journey, I have locked my keys in my car at a gas station, we have met 30 new people that we will be doing life with for the next however many days, months, years, we have lost a saxophone player for the wedding and Im sure there is much more tangled up in the mess of what seems like the longest two weeks of my life. So much change has been so overwhelming but so good all at the same time.

The Lord has blessed us time and time again and provided us for every last thing we have needed. Now we are just in the days of persevering until the big day. What a relief it will be. Im so excited about our life together and what God has in store. But one thing I have learned through all of this is God remains strong when I dont. Multiple nights we both would lay down in our own beds telling God that we had nothing left and it was all up to him in the morning. He was there faithfully every morning to lift us out of bed and sustain us through another crazy day. The few quiet moments I have had with the Lord have been incredible and the only thing that has kept me moving forward. Praise God! He is Good!! K Bye!

So I hardly ever get on MySpace, except when I get an email letting me know that someone commented or something, but today I decided to get on and see if you guys had any thoughts/excitement about the wedding...and I found this! :) I know God is leading your lives, and I know He is going to bless you so much for your faithfulness, trust, and love for Him. He already has, and this is just the beginning. I can't wait to see what God is going to do with you two. It gives me the chills! And it also motivates me to give Christ my all. I love you, Mark, and I love you, Jen. I love you both so much!!! I can't wait to see you! I can't believe that the next time I come up to see you guys it will be for your WEDDING! It's crazy how time flies. :)
