My cousins & Ben's cousin-in-loves, Martin & Candice, came to visit us for Memorial Day Weekend!
We looked at the weather right before they came and it was predicted to rain all weekend long--great.
So we were pretty much not planning on getting to go the beach.
But the pending rain didn't really stop us from getting out. Candice & I did a lot of antiquing and found some really amazing finds for her new house. Martin & Ben got to play a nice round of golf, and the cousin in loves even treated us to dinner one night!
On Sunday, we finally made it out to the beach, it was sunny enough to make it worth it, and to the weather predictor's discredit, it never rained! Yay!! We were pretty much praying all weekend that it wouldn't rain on us, so good thing God is in control of that and not the weathermen. :) And I think we all got at least a little bit sunkissed, making us a little less pale than we were the day before.
We had a really wonderful time with Martin & Candice and even got to give Martin a "sand bath" at the beach...complete with spa cucumbers and all!
Thanks for the visit!
As for this week, it was so nice to have Monday off...we relaxed and Ben got caught up on some of his studies. He has been doing really well on all his tests so far and has been working sooo hard! Yesterday he had a test, and was studying all morning, then came home to take a little break and to house hunt with me, then studied some more for his test today, went to church for prayer meeting and then went back up to base to do some hours in the flight simulators--what a day! God has really blessed his studies & has given him an extra measure of grace to push through exhausting days--I am thinking he will be ready for a nap when he comes home today :)
If you caught the part where I said we went "house hunting" and are wondering what that is all about, here is where I will tell you.
Ben and I are living in some really great apartments right now that we love, but our lease is up in August and if we stay on for another year, our rent is actually going up. We decided recently to start looking for other options in our area that might have nice, but cheaper options, to allow us to save some money in the coming year. So nothing is set yet, but we are praying that if God wants us to move, He will make a way!
I think thats all for today :) Thank you to all who have been praying for us & for Ben in his studies...God is faithful and is hearing your prayers!
