and yet another

So yesterday I wrote of all these prayer requests that God had answered, and today, I have another...

We heard back from the family going to the States from Thanksgiving until New Year's, and they said that we can have the car while they are gone! Thank you so much to Dave and Melissa White!!!

*On a side note, I am a thinker and over-analyze way too much. But I just have to say that just because these prayers were answered in a way that we were pleased doesn't mean that God wasn't answering our prayers if they didn't go in the way we wanted. I was reading in Psalms today, and David basically was calling out to God and telling him that he trusted that God knew what was best, even if he didn't like it. I got convicted because sometimes I just feel like I only really trust God when it works out in my favor. God always answers prayers but not always in the way we want, and that doesn't mean that we can't praise him in that as well. Yes, that is much tougher to do, but we still need to trust him in that as well. Sorry for the rambling...

it's okay that you ramble (like you said at the end of your blog) cuz i like to hear it b/c it's one of the only ways i know what's goin' on w/ you guys since you're over in eastern europe. it was weird, i was just thinkin' about you guys (while tryin' to write a paper) and i realized that you're due in less than a month (i think, dec 5th right?). anyways though, i hope everythin' is goin' great and by the sound of it, things are! anyways, i love you guys and keep that baby boy growin' strong so he can play football or basketball! love you guys, lata!

Josh -- I am due December 1st, three weeks from tomorrow. I will email you more later. Thanks for letting me ramble and over-analyze. I have no idea who I get that from!
