So many things

10.20.2009

October is slowly becoming my standout favorite month of the year. There are so many great aspects of this month. Fall weather is letting itself be known (especially when the temp drops to around 30), football is in full swing, and for this particular year, there is one potentially big thing that I'm praying for (if it comes through, you'll know). But I'm just excited for the remaining 12 days--seriously, that's it--of this month. This weekend Andrew and I are making our first trip up to Boone since last December! How in the world is that possible? Life goes by way to fast and I'm trying so hard to enjoy the little things a little more. That was maybe the cheesiest thing you'll read all week, but deal with it. I am so excited to see friends, enjoy some Appalachian football and some Cornerstone Summit Church. That's the biggie! But the rest of it is so needed and will be very much appreciated. And it'll also be nice to have a weekend away from our crazy puppies...I can't believe that someday in the future the word 'puppies' will be replaced with 'kids'. Ridiculously scary thought. And then next weekend is my birthday weekend! Yes, I'll be 24 and I can't wait for cake and ice cream and presents and everything that goes along with birthdays. I am 23 going on 4. Needless to say, I'd be okay if they decided to extend October just a little bit. How can you not love it all? Seriously.

God moves and seasons change

10.11.2009

God is good. And I am so thankful that He moves and is so faithful when I am completely unfaithful. Andrew and I have been making a point to spend more time with the Lord and more time with one another. The result; incredible. We've learned so much...some things that we should've known before, but different seasons allows to see things in a different way. Contentment has been something I've been struggling with lately and Andrew and God have been holding me and walking me through some tough stuff. Words cannot begin to express how truly thankful I am for that.

Okay...onto lighter things! Last weekend Steffi, Andrew, and Brewer Briley came to stay with us! And although I didn't get to see them HALF has much as I would've liked it was sooo great to even catch a glimpse!
our only the pic the whole weekend!

We also got to see a few other friends at Andrew and Amber's wedding!!! It was the perfect night for a wedding and it was one of the most beautiful weddings I have ever seen. Seriously.
Amber was a stunning bride and they were a beautiful sight to see. I can't wait to go visit them! Another plus was seeing a few of our other wonderful friends!AH! All of the people above make my heart happy! Another part of last weekend that was NOT great at the time (but slowly getting better) was getting the new addition to our family--Dani. She is a little black spaniel mix and is cute as can be!...however...it was a rough first week. We picked her up Saturday afternoon, had a few hours, went to Amber/Andrew's wedding, came back and went right back out to the emergency vet. 3 hours and $200 later, we were able to go home with our puppy. You see, when we picked her up, the rescue place told us that she had ringworm on her foot. Well, it did NOT look like any kind of ringworm I'd ever seen, but we trusted them. When we got home from the wedding, it was swollen, red and raw. Obviously, not good symptoms. It was rough. And I was not prepared for how much of an emotional transition it would be. But I'm a bit of an emotional freak. Things are much, much better now and Sam loves her new sister/playmate. And that was the main thing! So the Janke family is growing and God is blessing us and pushing us each step of the way. And I will continue to praise Him for that.
