Summer School/ Job (from the Bible)

One week and 4 days left of summer school!! I am so excited that it is almost over! I can actually see the light at the end of the summer school tunel. Last week I was awarded Dean's list for the spring semester! I was so excited! I have been in college for 4 years and it finally happened! Dusty and I are going with his parents and oldest brothers children to WV to see his middle brother next Friday, then we are taking a trip from there up to Washington DC. I have never been to Washington DC so this trip will be an experience. There is not that much going on that is new for Dusty and I, life is just kinda mellow right now. Praise God! Thats exactly what I needed. See God always knows best.
I have been studying Job, and it is amazing to me that a man who lost EVERYTHING could still praise God. What is even more amazing is that God allowed for everything to happen to Job. Nothing that was taken from or done to Job did God not approve. You see God knew exactly what Job would be able to handle and only gave him what he saw was okay. In life, sometimes you and I think why would God do this to me, and we forget that God said he would NEVER give us anything we could not handle so when you are going through a storm in life just remember that God is the one that causes it to rain. (Wow, I just made that up! Sounds great though.) I have been through times that I have wanted to give up and run from everything, but God being who He says He is always brings me through and I am always a stronger person having gone through the situation than I was before. So, my friend don't give up just yet, God will never let go of you. Hang on you will make it through!!!!

1 year

It's been a while since I last posted. On July, 7th Dusty and I celebrated our one year anniversary! We are loving the married life. We stay so busy that sometimes I feel I never get to see him but it all works out. I am still in summer school :( I can not wait for it to end. I eat, sleep, study, and go to school that's about all. Dusty is working. I feel as though I should reflect on our past year of being married so here goes:
We married on July 7th, 2007
Took a honeymoon cruise July 9-13
In August we both started back in school
September we took more wedding pictures
In October we dressed up again for Trunk-or-treat at our church (Wedding get up)
In November we prepared for Brazil with yard sales and celebrated Thanksgiving (oh how we have so much to be thankful for)
In December we went to Brazil
In January 2008 (we spent new years in Brazil)
In February we celebrated Valentines with a "nice" dinner at Taco Bell
In March we enjoyed our spring break from school
In April Dusty turned 26 (closer to 30)
In May I turned 21 in Utah; we went to the beach on a what was supposed to be a 4 day trip which turned out to be a overnight trip due to a friend that was not truthful, but the next weekend we went for 2 nights.
In June I began Summer school
In July we celebrated our anniversary with a nice dinner at the "Melting Pot" provided by a friend whom I call Aunt Leigh, then a new pair of tennis shoes, and a window for my car. We also had dinner another night at Red Lobster. Oh so yummy!!!
This has been a wonderful year to say the least. For those of you who do not know, Dusty and I are living with his parents and loving every minute of it. Well, that's enough for now. May God bless you richly. ~Rebecca
