Time Flies...

Typically that is followed by when you are having fun. Well, that is partially true anyway. Closer to reality though is that Brock and I have just been so busy that we have practically forgotten our blog. My apologies to those who do keep up with us.

And now the update...

In February Brock started a new job working as an assistant manager at Scarlet and Gray Cleaning, a janitorial company which cleans schools all over Cincinnati. He is working in the Mariemont School district.

Corie is getting ready to start up another year of her Masters of Art and Counseling. She has an internship in Middletown, OH. She is also working as a grad assistant for Rick Bullard the Geology professor at CCU and is working on saturdays at Findlay Market at Colonel D's a Gourmet Herb's and Spices.

Now for some crazy news: Corie and I have been living at a house since February with 5 single guys. We had our own bedroom and bathroom we shared the living room and kitchen area. It was a 6 month agreement that would end at the end of July. As it is now August decisions have to be made. After a time of prayer and fasting we felt the Lord leading Corie and I to a season of wilderness and unity. I know to most this sounds odd but I can explain.

For anyone that is learned in the bible the wilderness is a place where the Lord moves people to teach his people and refine them to grow closer to Him. So we are going into a season of this by moving out of the Cornerstone house where we have been this past 6 months. The Unity comes into play in that we are going to be moving into an apartment with a good friend. It will be a challenge with space but we all feel this is where we are to be for this time. Now for some sad news.

Dexter can not come live with us. The apartment complex is a dog free zone. They allow cats but not dogs. So for the time Dexter is going to stay with someone else. We have not decided on who yet but I am sure it will be known soon. This is sad but sometime sacrifices have to be made and this is a small one to move closer to saving money to be able to have our own house.

This is all taking place really quick but that is exactly how the Lord has dealt with all our moving situations in the past so this should be no different. We will be moving into the apartment on Sunday Aug. 14th.

Please pray that this is a smooth transition, that we would have a calming spirit about Dexter and that we would feel confident with who he stays with. Also that we would not be anxious and would stay at peace with this decision. We want to honor the Lord in this season.

This means that the title of the blog will change again and stay tuned for more updates. Hopefully more regularly.
