Brandon and Rachael have been married a month today. Where has the last month gone??
Update 6:15 p.m……Tadaaaa…..my car is well again.
Now Steve is changing the oil. He already had to change the alternator in his truck. If he keeps on changing stuff, pretty soon we’ll have all new vehicles!
More happy dances. My car is ready. We will go pick it up this afternoon when Steve gets home.
Counting down: 12 more days till E. comes home. We won’t see him, but I’m just so thankful he will be out of a dangerous area. Sandboxes can be lethal. He’ll be going back to Andrews AFB in Maryland.
I was thinking about a post Beth did back on Dec. 3. She talked about a boy and girl at church (she’ll be 15 next month and he’s 16). Ashley and David have liked each other for a while and he finally asked her out. But each was worried about what dating would do to the friendship they have.
Neither is incredibly mature, since they are only 15 and 16. But there is something that impressed me about him: he likes her eventhough she is quite a bit overweight. In fact, that kind of floored me. She probably needs to lose 30 lbs, but he wants to go with her anyway. That’s unusual. Teenage boys usually want the hot girls. Well….even the older guys want the Hooters girls. And many times, how much he wants her is quite dependent on how much the other guys want her, too. But Ashley has the cutest personality and David, at 16, sees that. She is a lot of fun to be with. Even our young adults like to be with Ashley. She and Brandon have spent long hours building boxes (it’s a long story!) And Ashley really looks up to Bethany.
So many people could find the person that would really love them, if they would just look in the right places. If they would look at what’s on the inside, rather than what’s on the outside. And when you are in love with what’s on the inside, then the outside no longer seems to matter so much.
That really raised him up a few notches in my eyes.
This is Ashley, with Bethany, in October, the day Ashley was baptised.
