Camping here we come!

We are going camping on Sunday and we are about as excited as 6 year olds going to Disney. You would think that we never get to go anywhere or do anything but the excitement in waiting is half the fun, right? The weather is not looking very hopeful for our trip but I am trying to convince myself that camping in the rain is equally as fun as camping in sunny 80 degree weather... :/ We will see how that goes...

We went to a rodeo last night with the Weatherwaxes. That was new and different. We real cowboys riding real bulls. For whatever reason it always seemed like some fantasy to me but evidentally the world has not been lying and it really does happen...weird.

They call it a sport. I see it as attempts at suicide...maybe thats extreme. But one guy did get trampled and taken away on a stretcher...I chuckled and wanted to be like "well, duh!". But none-the-less I still hope he is ok.

Tonight we are going out to good old "camp" to see some friends from Faith. Camp is...well to be honest I really don't know I have never been. But its a church thing I suppose. We are excited to see friends and be fed by a much missed mom from Lansing.

Our air doesn't really work and it is rather hot...but I still made mac and cheese for lunch and it was still amazing...

I found the bottom of our laundry basket today and that was a huge accomplishment...I thought for sure it was gone but to my surprise once I washed all of the clothes (did I say all? Because I meant ALL) there was the bottom of the basket smiling back at me :)I wanted to give myself a round of applause since this may the first time it has happened but I was too embarrassed...I didn't want Mark to think I had lost (although it is possible that he might already think that).

Well thats all for now in the exciting life of Mark and Jenny...maybe Ill be back before vaca and well maybe not.

My heart...

I long for your love to swirl around me
I long for your life and will for me
I long to make a difference for you
I long to see lives changed
I long to see people in surrender to you
I long to see tears running down the faces of those you love
I long to hear voices endlessly lifting praise to you
I long to see an urgency in saving the lost
I long to see us giving up everything in order to gain everything
I long for a world where we live as we actually are: Free
I long for you Jesus
I long for your power
I long for your redemption
I long for you forgiveness
I long for us to love you and only you!

I need you Jesus, I need you…

A day off...

I was so excited all week because I had today off completely from everything. Mark is gone all day, I got most of the cleaning done and I was hoping to just lay out at the pool all day. But I awoke this morning to no sun. I am pretty sad. Although I have to admit I am enjoying the quiet and peacefulness of being all alone with nothing to do. Life has been so crazy and busy lately that I feel somewhat out of place not having anything going on.

Tomorrow we have our first lifegoup meeting that I am leading. I am really excited about it. There are some great girls in the group and I hope that we become even close through the summer.

Mark and I are leaving to go camping next week. We are going to camp in Coldwater for 5 days and then go to Cinncinatti and see his family and go to a wedding. I am really excited!! Im so excited to go away just me and my husband and enjoy a relaxing break outside! Yay! There is a lot of work to do though before we go!
