Month of November

So Life just keeps plugging along. Sometimes when i stop and take a step back and look at my life - i wonder how do i ever get frustrated or anxious about things - we have a great life and God really shows himself faithful. Sometimes it feels pointless to be here in Scranton when seminary is slow going or seemingly endless, but God in his sovereignty planned for me to marry Richard who is the epidemy of patience (especially compared to me) and Richard just has to remind me of the greater goal for our lives and how much this really is preparing us for the rest of our lives. He has truly given us everything we need and blesses us daily.
God has placed us into a wonderful church - although at first not exactly what we had expected but as we spend more time there, we really are growing to love it and feel a part of a church body where the purpose is being accomplished for what the church was meant to be. It just requires patience. :-)
The middle of November we took a very fast trip to MA. I have a lot of family there and that is where we got married so we have quite a few friends there. My cousin is having a baby and they had a shower there, so we left as soon as we could after work on friday and drove the 5 hrs to MA. We stayed with my Auntie Terre and we always love seeing her and spending time with her and she is so so fun and thinks of so many fun things to do for guests. She planned the shower with some other poeple from church and Saturday morning I went with Carson to the shower. That turned out to be a great time for me to see people from the church and for them to see Carson for the first time. I didn't hold him the whole time b/c other people did and he had a a great time time with all the strangers and didn't mind a bit. He is so fun to have around.

After the shower was over we went to visit some friends of the family, the hilperts, and had a great time showing off carson. And in the evening we went to my very dear friend's house Lydia Marvin. We have been friends since we were kids and through all of my moving and traveling we have stayed close. We got married less than a month apart and we love love love eachother and the friendship that we have. :-)
Needless to say Carson didn't really sleep all day, except for the blurps of the car rides, but he was so jolly and in a good mood all day and laughing all the time. Sunday we went to church and again saw a lot of people that we used to know well. Carson did great in the nursery with strangers. Then we went to macaroni grill with my Auntie Terre and my cousin and wife. We can't wait until the baby comes and we are so excited for them, they will be great parents.
That afternoon after visiting Lydia's mother went packed up and came home. whew fast trip but very well worth it.
Carson got to meet Great Grampie Spence too and I'm so thankful that Grampie could meet him.
