Well, this should be a bigger, better post...with some of the pictures I had planned, etc. But I don't think I'll get the time to do that today, so here it is, just as it is. :) I wanted to give you all a quick update on the goings-on of our family, and ask for your prayers that they go smoothly. :) On Thursday, Joe was in an accident. Not a super major one, just a few seat belt bruises, thank God, but sadly, our car is beyond the point of repair. :( In the midst of sorting all of this out, we also realized that for some deep, secret, and perhaps non existent reason, our insurance company discontinued our car insurance in about...June! YIKES! So, this week is a busy one, with lots of car borrowing so he can get to work and such, and this weekend will most likely involve a trip to carmax. Please pray that we can find a good car that meets our needs at a nice low price! I'll try to show you a picture of our poor car... the whole "nose" part looks much like an accordion... But, like I said, Joe is fine, so that's all that matters!

Also, tomorrow is Ash Wednesday, and for those who practice it, the first day of Lent. This year, as a family, we are giving up TV and computers (and electronic games, but that's really just Joe's)...so I might be able to hop on on Sundays, if time permits, but other wise...I hope you have a lovely March (we get a week of vacation!!), and I will see you again after Easter! I will miss you all, please pray for me, since I know the first week or two will be really hard!! You will all be in my prayers too. :)
Until then,

Praising God that Joe is okay! I will be praying that God provides mightily for you in the car department!
May the Lord bless you during this Lent season. Will miss you on the net and by the time you return I will probably have a new wee one in my arms!

Lots of love to you dear friend!

What a horrible shock the accident must have been, but I am so glad your husband is well.

Oh no! I'm so glad Joe is ok... Jason was in an accident recently as well and it is SO scary for the wife at home! I hope you guys get a good car for a reasonable price. St. Anthony...help them out! :)

I'm so glad your husband is all right! What a scary thing to have had happen! I'll be praying the Lord provides a good, reliable car at a decent price for you. We went through that last summer, and praise the Lord we got something nicer than we had before at a reasonable price.

Have a wonderful Easter - I'll miss your posts while you are away!
