In my desperation, I searched the Internet for answers...Why does God make us wait? How can I be joyful in the wait? What is God trying to teach me? I found this quote and it really spoke to me....
Many of us may seem to hit a pause button somewhere in our lives. It is a waiting point, and here our faith and patience is tried. Here He says, “Wait on Me.” He will show you the joys of waiting and the blessings you will receive!
That is where I have been...the pause button has been pressed. So, I must find joy in the wait and know that what God has promised will be fulfilled and, oh, the blessing we will receive.
On another note, Mason turned 10 years old on Saturday. I can hardly believe it! He received the IPhone for his birthday. He was sooooo excited. Ten years old is a big year in our family. So, we celebrate it BIG. Fred will be taking him and his cousin to Virginia next weekend and they will go to one of the largest water slides around and to Busch Gardens. He is really excited!
On Saturday, Morgan, Lily and I headed to the barn to finish painting all the jumps for her riding teacher's birthday. It was really hot outside, but Lily was a trooper and got right in there and helped us paint. Check her out!
She was covered in paint!! Morgan is still getting paint out of her hair.
Friday was Morgan and Mason's last day of school. On Thursday, Mason had is end of year party. It was great to be able to go and have that time with him. Thanks Dawn, for watching the little ones!!!
Each year the teacher gives out awards based on the child's personality or things they have accomplished during the year. Of course, Mason got the "funny bone award". I really shouldn't have expected anything less.
Next year will be Mason's last year of elementary school and Morgan's last year of middle school. I am so proud of the hard work and dedication both of them give to their school work. They both pulled out straight "A's" all year long!
On Monday (Memorial Day) we hung out around the house and had a nice quite day to ourselves. Morgan spent her day at the barn and Fred and I and the rest of the kiddos hung out at our pool. It was really a great weekend!
