We will remain confident in the Lord's direction for our lives....

Name Change

Success!!! The boys are both down for the night. (Thank goodness) I made it through a whole weekend with Garth gone out of town. Cheers all around please. He left last Sunday to attend a course in DC, and will return on Friday. Come on Daddy!!

The weekdays weren't too bad. Jaydon and I stayed busy playing with the neighbors and Dylan went to school. When he got home, we did homework and then he was out to play with friends or we met someone for dinner or we went to gymnastics.

However, Saturday and Sunday were a bit more trying. It doesn't take long to discover that both our boys are high energy and need entertaining. Dylan has to be doing something all the time and preferablly with as many little boys from the street as possible. Jaydon wants to be outside, or if he has to stay indoors he wants to play tractor or train or motorcycle with you. Noises and all. I love my boys so much, and desire to pour into my little God given vessels. However, I am quite done pouring for the day.

Now the reason I labled this post Name Change is because I feel the need to be called Fred or Sue or Bob or Jane, even Lynita. I have heard MOM and MOMMY so many times this weekend that I am done. When Dylan was first talking, I so wanted him to say MA. He had DADA down pat for so long, but just wasn't saying MA. We went to Colorado with my family during this time and my Dad spotted a road called NO NAME LN. That was my road. Then it started and I haven't heard the end of it yet. Then Jaydon started talking and I knew better this time. Be careful what you wish for. But, MA, MOM, and now MOMMY came very quickly. I wasn't the only one who recognized it today. I took the boys to the mall and as I was checking out, the nice gentleman behind the counter said something like, "Don't you wish you could change your name sometimes?" My response, "Yes."

Now, do not read this and for one moment think I do not love my boys or want to be a MOMMY, MOMMY, MOMMY, MOMMY. I most certainly do - everyday for as long as God allows. It is just nice to have a small break every now and again.

So with that said, I, Lynita am going to call it a night and get some rest so I can continue filling the vessels, I affectionately call MY SONS.

Good night!

Two months and counting!!!

The big move is fast approaching. We will have Corpus Christi, TX in our rear view mirror in less than two months. Unfortunately it still hasn't sunk in yet that we will no longer have a TX address. It is so hard to believe that two and one-half years can fly by so fast. We will soon be living in a different state, Garth will have very different duty, Dylan will have a new school and friends. I could go on and on about what will change and how we will have to adjust. However, we will get through it and overcome I am sure. One thing never changes and that is Jesus Christ, so when all else fails grab onto Him.

I recently started a new Bible Study called Stepping Up by Beth Moore. It will take us through the Psalms of Ascent. I knew I wanted to do this bible study before heading out, but when I started studying, I learned that I think God wanted me to do it too. The study dives into Psalms 120-134. These are the psalms the people sang to and from the festivals God called the Jews to observe. (I never knew that till this study.) Well it didn't take me to long to find a psalm to grab ahold of for the journey - Psalms 121.

Psa 121:1 I will lift up my eyes to the hills. Where shall my help come from?
Psa 121:2 My help comes from Jehovah, who made Heaven and earth.
Psa 121:3 He will not allow your foot to be moved; He who keeps you will not slumber.
Psa 121:4 Behold, He who keeps Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.
Psa 121:5 Jehovah is your keeper; Jehovah is your shade on your right hand.
Psa 121:6 The sun shall not strike you by day, nor the moon by night.
Psa 121:7 Jehovah shall keep you from all evil; He shall keep your soul.
Psa 121:8 Jehovah shall keep your going out and your coming in from this time forth, and even forevermore.

What could be more fitting for a spiritual journey or a physical journey? So I pray the Lord keeps this Psalms in the forefront of our minds as we may our way up and over the hills to a new land. We will keep you posted on the progress of the journey!!
