Summer Up-date!

Goodness, I wait forever till I get a new post up. I have had my best friend leaving a comment and even telling me to get something new out there. I always say, "I know, I will!" But seriously, those don't mean anything because I CAN'T fit it in. My summer has been going really good, nice and busy. We have things come up as the day goes on so sometimes we will take it and go ahead. It's really fun to just be with my favorite people in the FAMILY! I just need 6 more people to spend my life with and then it's complete, well, to really make it all good 12! That would be her grandparents, and then mine! But hey, you can't have everything, even though at times I wish for it. But then I always have to make myself come to realization, "Vanessa, God wants me to be content with what I have, stop complaining about this and that." (Heb 13:5 KJV) Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.

I just love that verse, it speaks so clearly and it explains everything for me! It has two very good parts which go perfectly hand-in-hand. I sometimes feel so low here in Illinois, wanting to go back to my hometown in TX, I sometimes feel that God has left my family and I here, and we're just wandering alone. However, that verse always comes back in my mind, "No, God HAS NOT left us here, he brought us here for a reason and it's a good one! I'll follow him wherever he's going to take me, I am NOT alone!"

So anyways, I haven't forgotten to post anything, I'm always reminding myself, "Get on that blog!" But, then things are always coming up or the computer is taking already.

Hopefully, you'll include some pictures of buddy!? From the way you were talking about his growth.. I wouldn't be suprised if he was a Great Dane now :)
My dog on the otherhand has turned into a kitty cat. She lays on my desk just like one and loves to be carried!
