So far this morning...

It is a lovely day. Wes came out of his room this morning wearing this:

He said it is "Flashback Day" for homecoming week. This is his idea of flashback. Seersucker pants a penguin shirt and an old Pepperdine letter jacket. Well alrighty. I have learned not to be concerned anymore about how he dresses. It is just him.

(I do take pictures to document and for future torture though.)

I am so enchanted by the early morning sun shining through the leaves. It was so cool and crisp and gorgeous this morning. I wore short sleeves on my walk and was just nearly cold. Nice.
Random thought: I am praying and hoping God will show me what I can do to help with the cost of college for our two sweet young men next year. (God blessed me to have my dream job as a stay at home Mom the past 20 years.) Now that a new chapter is starting...I am hoping that I can find a job that not only helps financially but one that will help to further the Kingdom. I have always wanted to own one of these: I dream about it...

Or one of these: (I can smell the coffee right now.)

And bake and sell these...
Dreaming. What is your dream job?
No man is so poor as to have nothing worth giving...
Give what you have to someone. It may be better than you dare to think.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Blessings! Amy

I found your blog by blog hopping! I think I met you once at the Red River encampment a few years ago. I am Donna Jenkin's niece and I know she and your mom go way back. I work at OC and just wanted to say I enjoyed reading your blog! Have a blessed day.

I've basically gotten to live out my dream job over the years in many places. The only thing that would make it better would be having old friends join me in doing it!
Keep seeking first His Kingdom. He may have some "stretching" for you in this time -- be open for it!
He has placed so much in you & He just oozes out of you! I've been blessed by some of the overflow!
Keep being His!
Sure do love you & yours!
