great news!

Last week, I received some great news! I was offered a full-time job at Southern Seminary!! I am so excited, and I cannot wait to begin my new job in less than two weeks. My first day will be Friday, Aug. 20. I will be working in the vice president of enrollment management and student life's office. I am super pumped, and the office that I will be working in is right up my alley!

It's so wonderful to see how the Lord has been working things out for Mat and I over the past year. Sometimes, I get so frustrated and so annoyed (hey, I'm just being honest here!) with not knowing what in the world the Lord is doing, but time-after-time, He is good, and He is always sovereign. I praise the Lord-- and I praise the Lord again because I DON'T always know what He's doing. I'm thankful I don't!

Again, God is good. Always, always.

Once Mat and I get settled into our new house out in Shepherdsville, we/I are/am going to begin a new project. (I might begin it sooner, depending on a few variables yet to be determined...) We are praying about what direction the Lord would have us take concerning this new "project," and hopefully, we will be able to get it off the ground soon. (Special thanks to my sweet friend, Sarah Lovett, for her help here!)

A few weeks ago, some of us loaded up and went to Cincinnati to hit up Ikea. But, of course, you can't go to Cincinnati and not eat at Terry's Turf Club-- home of the best burger you've ever put in your mouth! Below is a pic of my precious friends: (l to r) me, Diana, Sarah Rice, Sarah Lovett, and Bekah. Bekah just moved here, so there are lots of fun times to come, I'm sure. I can't wait to get to know her better!

Since we moved to Louisville, the other 4 girls have become irreplaceable in my life. I am just crazy about each of them. I am so overjoyed to have them in my life. (Love you, gals! I praise God for you!)

(Photo: Mat-- he's learning so much!)

Mat and I bought a lot of stuff at Ikea-- 2 lamps, a mortar and pestle, a wok, some bottles, kitchen towels, a mail rack, a grater and a kitchen scale. All of that for a very, and I do mean very, affordable price. Thank you, Ikea!

But Little One's favorite "purchase" was the boxes our lamps came in. He was pumped to have a new house. Sham? Not so pumped...  Wouldn't even go near them.

I made this photo below of the house back in July, and I just never got around to sharing it. I love this picture, so I wanted to post it. This picture was made standing in the kitchen, looking out our back door (which is in the kitchen, off of the right side of the house). I love the fact that when I wake up in the mornings (after we move in), one of the first things I'll see is Sunnyside Baptist Church. Praise God!

All in all, life is good. Mat starts seminary in one week. I know he is so excited. This year, he'll be taking 12 hours of class, interning for Dr. Mohler still, be an ambassador for the seminary, and of course, still be the senior pastor at Sunnyside. I'm so proud of him. And he's cute. I'm super blessed. And super thankful.

See. I told you he was cute.
