"This life therefore, is not godliness but the process of becoming godly, not health but getting well, not being but becoming, not rest but exercise. We are not now what we shall be, but we are on the way. The process is not yet finished, but it is actively going on. This is not the goal, but it is the right road. At present, everything does not gleam and sparkle, but everything is being cleansed." --Martin Luther

new idea for the next few posts...

I've got a list of "great" quotes I wanted to write about at some point. Well...that some point isn't coming all that soon. SOOOOO here is your chance to help me out!

I am going to put up a quote or a thought, and I would LOVE it if you would post a comment for me to think about. What does it say to you? What does it teach you? Anything? What is your reaction when you read it?

We're just plugging away at school, we still have about 9 weeks left which we'll try to finish in about 7 (our lesson plans are written for a 4 day week with a catch up day. We'll shift them to 5 day weeks now when we can), plus we still have our testing to do. We also have 15 doctor and dentist appointments in the next four weeks or so (had to move a bunch because our insurance doesn't start until May 1st).

We still have a Friday night small group. Still have Sunday school for the kids for another month, but Wednesday morning bible study is over. The girls and I started a self-defense class on Sunday. After that we eat and then we (and Brian) watch a video and discuss it. Should be interesting!

Brian is working for himself for now. He works at a housing development talking care of all the common areas (landscaping, irrigation, etc). He also works for the guy who developed the area doing all that and mowing and whatever else he needs him to do. This is where he was working before we left. This gentleman has been great to us! The kids love visiting them as much as they love having us all out! Brian just picked up one more home owner out there and is waiting to hear back from another. He has done and is doing some work for others as well.

Trying to figure out exactly what it is to call what he does-lawn care, landscape care, handyman extraordinaire... So if you have any jobs you need done, give him a call! He isn't opposed to a little bit of travel if it is a 2-3 day job. He just charges a flat rate per hour for whatever you need done. He's done a little bit of everything!

Okay--be watching out for the first quote soon!
