Parades are fun. They are especially fun when you know people who are marching in parades. We recently had the joy of watching our daughter march with her high school band in our community's Christmas parade; yet another "last" in our lives.

We had a lot of fun because our community is fairly small even though we are a suburb of the Dallas Ft. Worth metroplex. Our town (and it is called a town) only has 2 high schools, both of which were represented in our parade, along with every Boy Scout troop, city official, and club. It is like one big Flower Mound party - attended by friends and neighbors - one happy community. I left the parade feeling blessed to be part of a small town community, and really proud of our daughter as she represented her school in the festivities.

Biblical Counseling

I took a ministry position with my church some time back that I felt ill-equipped to really do. I was assured that I would be provided training.

True to their word (staff at my church), I got the details of the training. In a few weeks, I will begin a 26 week training with The Association of Biblical Counselors

My mind is still trying to grasp what I have gotten myself into! Haha! While doing so, I am mentally preparing myself for going back to school, since that's pretty much what I will be doing. I am excited and nervous at the same time. I am also in awe at how faithful God is.

Eager to see what He has in mind!
