The light inside

Thursday, March 27, 2008


I've been in a pensive mood. I might even describe it as somewhat of a funk.

This hasn't been the easiest of years, but I have seen God's blessings and I've seen Him working in our lives. Sometimes I have to wonder what He is doing, what He is trying to teach me, and WHY it had to be done this way.

The topic of truthfulness, or the lack thereof, has been rolling around in my heart. This topic has always interested me. I think part of that has to do with the fact that my name means "truthful" or "little truth." Since learning that I have tried to live up to that. *Let me be honest and say that I have failed miserably, many times.
I know that God is the Truth, and that He honors truthfulness. I've done some very brief searching of scripture, but haven't found a scripture that I was looking for yet. I would love something that I can cling to about the truthfulness of God, or the truthfulness he expects of us. I guess I am just looking for something to satiate a part of my heart that seems to have been burned.

Got any scriptures or good quotes on truth?

Mad dash...

I feel like after a week I should have something profound or funny to post about. I don't.

It seems like most of my mental energies are now spent trying to make a mad dash to prepare for living in Pittsburgh. I've started a garage sale list in my mind (which is humorous because we are seriously living on borrowed furniture), and decided which items won't make the move with us. We've also been trying to arrange to get to Pittsburgh and try to buy a house!! I am excited and scared about this at the same time. We are so new to this, and I am trying to look at and decide things about a city I've never even set foot in.

So I raise my glass to the mad dash that is the next 3 months. Here's to looking, financing, flying, touring, talking, walking, debating, deciding and all the other chaos that is to come from finding a future home. Ahh, life is an adventure

It's official...

Well friends and family it is official!

We are moving to Pittsburgh! (

Justin found out that he matched there today. It isn't a surprise, but it is a blessing to officially know, and to let others know as well. Now we try to find a house, and I'll try to get ready to live in a city I have never seen. God has a way of making sure I know he is in control...

Oh Lord, you are good and faithful. Thank you for bringing us to this point. Thank you for Pittsburgh and the ministry and lives that await us there. May we be a light to those who need you , and may we seek you ever more. Thank you for unknown experiences and places. Be with us and help us Lord. I love you.

My hubby...

This is my shout out to you baby! (Not that he reads my blog.)

Tomorrow my amazing, wonderful, talented and bright husband has an extremely big day. Tomorrow Justin takes his step II podiatric medical boards. It is a big exam, and I know he is going to do great. He has studied like crazy, and I am amazed at his self-discipline. Honestly, I have never known anyone who has the stamina and self-discipline to study he has. He studies for hours everyday (including the weekends) as well going to clinic, playing with the kids, and spending time with me.

I love you baby, and I am really proud of you! You are going to do great!!

We would love and appreciate your prayers. Thanks.
