There has been so much going on lately! Grady and I are enrolled in school for next semester. We are going to go to Pellissippi together. Grady is going to school to be a radiology tech and I am not sure what I want to do yet. Im allowing God to direct my path.

My Mom has told me that she is having a hysterectomy next month. This is kind of big news because just a few weeks ago she wanted to have another baby because she thought it would fix her failing marriage. Thank you Jesus for waking her up out of that! She has had health issues for quite sometime so I am glad to see her doing something that could improve her quality of life.

Two of my very best friends broke up a month or so ago. It has not been awkward for Grady and I because the both of them have been doing their own things to heal . I had the opportunity to spend time with one of them last night and now have so much peace about the situation. It is not my decision to choose who to be friends with. Grady and I should'nt have to take sides. We are friends with both and thats how it will stay. The two in the relationship can decide when they have healed if they want to spend time with all of us together. If that time never comes then we will see the both of them separtley. Our whole conversation went really well and I am so happy to have my best friends back in my life. Neither of them is bitter nor are they bashing one another. They both are taking steps in the right direction to move on. Thank goodness they both have had Jesus to run to. He heals and comforts always. I am so proud at how mature we all have become in such a short period of time. God sure has been working on us!

Also yesterday I went walking for the first time in ages. Two of the woman I work with walk three times a week so I have decided to start walking with them. I should probably start watching what I eat so I might loose some weight but that is not my goal! My goal is to fellowship and be a little more healthy!

Grady is doing something to better himself as well. He is cutting out almost 90% of his tv watching! He is trying so hard to be a better man and it makes me so proud to call him my husband.

I found out that one of my old friends has joined the army. I am not sure how I feel about this yet because not only is he an old friend we dated for a short period of time. I'm so sad to see him go but I dont want to stir up the pot by talking to him. (Grady and him did not get along very well in the past.) This friend is not saved and it breaks my heart that he could potentially loose his life and never have a relationship with The Savior! I am praying about how to deal with this with Grady and I know that he will give us a blatant answer of what our Christian duties are and not what Grady or I want to do.

Im sure there is more going on in my crazy life but I cant think of it at the moment. I love and miss you all!
