Spring is here!

I've been enjoying the beautiful weather lately so much! I love watching God paint his beautiful masterpiece here in PA. God has been teaching me so much lately in my devotions and prayer life. I'm trying to read through the books of Psalms and Esther. I don't know how all you moms out there find time for your devotions, I usually have mine at night before going to sleep. It's about the only quiet time I get to myself without interruptions. I have found myself lately, looking forward to that time alone with God and just to hear his voice and read his word. I don't ever remember a time when I have enjoyed reading the Bible so much.

The girls are growing up so much. Kallie still isn't completely crawling yet, but she can get around. Katrin turned 3 last week. She's 36lbs, and 38" tall. For her birthday, she got a 'big girl' bike and has been trying to get used to riding that.

Paul is working hard, as usual, and trying to get the church growing. He's so busy and wearing so many hats (a daddy, husband, main bread winner, and full time pastor). He's great at them all too.

This weekend I'm having a wonderful friend come visit! I'm so excited I can hardly stand it! Then next weekend, for Mother's Day, my mom is coming to visit!! It will be her first time to see my house! I'm really excited to have her visit. Of course, Katrin is too. Her and Nana are pretty close.

Well I best be going to bed.

Christ is Risen!

He is risen indeed!! Happy Easter! Tomorrow is a big day, as it is for most, I'm sure. Paul will be preaching his first Easter message and then serving communion for the first time tomorrow night. Pray for him! I'm helping teach Sunday School and we have to sing in the morning. AHHH!!

Then Monday morning we leave for IHC!! I can hardly wait!

A short update

My husband told me I needed to update my blog so that's the main reason I'm doing this. I don't have anything too exciting to tell everyone. Lately I've been posting alot on Facebook so my blog has gone by the wayside.

We did get a new church and yesterday was our first Sunday there. We had 25 which was really encouraging!! This Saturday, we're having an Easter egg hunt for the community around the church. It will be fun, but I have alot to get done between now and then. We're hoping and praying for 30 kids!!

Next week is IHC!! Yeah!! We're SO looking forward to getting away. Hopefully it will be a time of rest and relaxation and catching up with old friends. Today I'm trying to get all my laundry done (I've folded 5 loads already) so I can pack for next week. Tomorrow Paul is working so he can have off Wednesday to help some of our church people move and I'm taking them a meal that evening. Thursday, I'm going to visit a friend. Friday, drs appointment... and the list goes on! Next Saturday is Katrin's birthday party.

Right now I'm trying to get Kallie better. She was sick last week and isn't getting better. I think she has a fever and might be trying to cut some teeth. I feel so bad for her. I hate seeing my kids sick. Well I must go tend to her. See you all at IHC!!
