First, I just wanted to write about Addison's eating habits. She is my little southern girl. She likes Chili, Chicken and Dumplings, Beef Stew, Red Beans and Rice, cornbread, fried Turkey, and Dressing. She'll eat just about anything I put in front of her! I haven't given her sweet tea or Pecan pie but I"m sure she'll love these Southern staples as well.
On a more serious note the last week has been very up and down, twisty and turn-y. Tracy pulled/strained the stabilizer muscle in his quad (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quad_muscle). More technically Wikipedia tells me that it's his Sartorius muscle. Basically you need this muscle for everything, standing, walking, running, push ups etc. Due to his injury he got dropped from the training and is now home until further notice. We are waiting until the first of the year to make any job decisions (mostly b/c we are waiting to hear from people). I like to call it intentional procrastination, i.e. planning on doing something later not just waiting because we're lazy. So here we are waiting and trusting God for a job, for direction.
Ever since our flight to see Tracy I've thought about Addison's child like faith. She just trusted me to take her on her first plane ride and lug her across the country. She wasn't scared or worried. She knew she had her Mom and that's all that mattered. She knows that I'll take care of her and provide for her. I wonder why I don't have that much faith in God sometimes. We loose jobs, we get jobs, we move here or stay there. He has it all planned out. He knows what's best for me, for my family and for His Kingdom. We wait, we patiently plan, but all that really matters is that we have God and He provides for us every step of this journey.
