Another Spoonful of Sunday Blessings

It's 11:00 AM and I've already finished and submitted a research project outline due tomorrow (I'm wayy ahead of the game!). It's a blessing in and of itself! So I thought I would continue on with this train of consciousness and take some time to count my...Sunday Blessings!

Unsurprisingly, the job vs. school dilemma rages on. There's solid reasons on both sides and I'm completely split and undecided as to what my future holds. But you know what? That's okay. Through this indecision, God continues to teach me about faith & trust. I don't know what God's plan for my life is. Try as I might to control my fate, I fail. When I attempt to imagine my life 5, 10, 20 years from now, I honestly can't. 90% of the time, it drives me nuts. But praise Jesus, that I'm not in charge of my destiny. For if He wasn't, what a boring and predictable life I'd have!

I HAVE HOT WATER! Is there really more that needs to be said? It's funny how it took giving myself a bath in my kitchen sink for me to realize how much I take this convenience for granted.

I feel as though as huge weight has been lifted in regards to our nuptials. Relieving ourselves of expectations has been so liberating and I can't wait to commit myself to my wonderful fiance...however we decide to do it!

This is more of a blessing wrapped around a prayer. Hubby has been going back and forth about his current position. He loves his job, he's damn good at it and we both love the financial security it's provided us. But as we embark on this new journey as man & wife, this long-distance relationship needs to end...ASAP! I know tons of wives of military and businessmen deal with much more extreme separation than we've been faced with. But that's not me. And it's certainly not us. I don't think it's too much to desire to wake up with my husband.

My prayer is that hubby might secure a job here with me so we could actually start our life together. The blessing is that I'm so excited for it to happen! I've been waiting for this moment for a long time and the thought that we may begin the new year sharing a home is enough to make me positively twitterpated!


  1. Long distance is excruciating. Hoping things work out in that respect. x
    Thanks for following me over at my blog. !

  2. So much to be thankful for! Hope you are having a wonderful Sunday :)

  3. Kaity - YOU ARE A WRITER!!! So inspired by your inspirations. Thank you for your honesty, your forth-rightness and your ABILITY!
    Chuck WILL get a job in PA and YOU will help him get it. You and Rusty (thank you or the HR insight which I'd forgotten from years ago in the recruiting industry) and me!

    November 23rd will find us all celebrating a day of Thanksgiving (eve) with music and food and drinks surrounded by family and friends. November 24th will find us in a warm, cozy home (205 S. Walnut St)giving Thanks for all of our "twisted thoughts, where Jesus is in between."

    I love you!

  4. You guys will figure it out. I don't think it is too much to want to wake up next to your love either.

  5. Love your 'blessing' section-I used to write 3BTs-3 Beautiful things-but I am out of the habit-it is good to think about all the blessings in our life...if we forget!
