Well we've been here for a little over four weeks now and I finally feel like this is becoming "home". I'm not sure if I want it to feel like home just yet but it needs to. I guess I still feel so connected to life in fort worth that it feels odd to be so involved here as well.
I have definitely felt like the Lord has continued to confirm that we are where we need to be- doesn't always mean things will be easy or comfortable but knowing you are where you are supposed to be makes dealing with the transition and issues bearable and in the end- a lot more satisfying.
One of the ways the Lord has confirmed this move is through a simple study group of college girls who are reading through "Desiring God" by Piper- that meets on Sunday afternoons. God has reminded me that He has given me a heart for college girls and that I find so much joy in talking and sharing with them. I am very thankful that He has already given me some of the desires of my heart.
I am still anxious to get involved in some discipleship relationships and teaching opportunities but I know that will come.
The apartment deserves a little more credit than I originally gave it- but not much. =) I have almost every room "done" and put in order except our bedroom - it probably needs a little extra time. Before and after pics will be coming soon!
I have really been enjoying Moses' company. We go for walks almost everyday and he is becoming more and more obedient so I think we might just be able to keep him.
Now things have not been absolutely perfect with him- while he has had mostly good days- he has had a couple bad ones- and his bad ones have been really bad ones.
To give you a glimpse of those days I have included some pics below-
One day we were watching a movie in our bedroom and after it was over I opened the bedroom door to find that Moses peed in the hallway upstairs- so I went downstairs to grab the cleaning supplies to find this:
Yep- lots of piles of poop.
We took pics because we thought others would think we were exaggerating when we said " a lot of poop". The garbage bag we loaded it in- weighed at least 3 pounds. Ohhh so gross.
So Moses was umm.... "disciplined" and let's just say his tail did not wag for the the next 6 hours- and it always wags.
Since then he's been pretty good so hopefully he'll keep up the good work. He has really been enjoying his friends- Gus & Mattie. After wrestling around they both took a break and looked so cute together!
Mattie and Moses like to play a lot and we've started to call her his girlfriend.
Moses also enjoyed the lake with us the other day- it was beautiful so I took a couple shots.
I will try to be better about updating and maybe I'll be succesful in posting again this week.
