“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I anointed you a prophet to the nations.” Jeremiah 1:5
Today (Friday, July 19) is Guy’s birthday! We don’t have just grandiose plans for today, but we are hoping to visit the Kimball Art Museum and enjoy some frozen custard after a dinner of steaks grilled here at home. I’m also posting the recipe for his birthday cake in my next installment of In the Kitchen.
Aside from Guy’s birthday, we’ve have a week full of adventure. Thursday last week brought us a quick, hard rain. Guy was at work, and I didn’t think anything about it except being thankful for the rain. Imagine my surprise when, a few hours later, Campus Security pounded on our door and warned me not to head out my back door! Come to find out, the rain had knocked out a good chunk of the tree off to the side of the apartment, and it was over the fence and into our back yard. Friday, then, saw the seminary landscaping crew chopping down the limb and grinding it up. Then Saturday, a tree removal company came and took out the rest of the tree. So now, we are less one shade tree.
We’ve had rain off and on since Sunday, which has been wonderful. Good sleeping weather and cooler temperatures (70s-80s) until Thursday. It’s heating up again, but we’re still staying around low to mid-90s, and I’m not going to complain one bit, especially since we’re over halfway through July. The locals here say that this rain is very unusual for July, but no one’s complaining!
Guy’s been working at Bass Pro now for almost 2 weeks, and seems to be enjoying it pretty well. They have him in the main fishing area, although he would prefer to be in with the fly fishing section. He comes home and tells me all about the people he’s met, the things he’s learning, and such. Here’s a picture of my handsome man!
I have been applying around still, trying to find a job myself. I had an interview this week with a company, and go back again Monday for a second interview. Please be praying in regards to this for us!
* Jessi’s job interview, that a job offer will be made and she can start soon.
* Financial concerns
* Continued good grades/retention for Guy
* Preparations for family to come visit in August
* Wisdom regarding classes for Jessi – not sure if I should go part-time or full-time, due to financial concerns at this time
* Opportunities to fellowship and form friendships on and off campus
