Being Stretched and Trusting my God!!!!

January and February are gone and it seems that March is doing the same thing.  We were asked to step up to lead the worship team at our church which is a big commitment, but when God calls, you answer.  My Bible study, Making Peace with your Emotions, started the first Tuesday in February and we have such a fantastic group of ladies and I feel like we are learning so much and really coming together.  February proved to be a difficult month though.  Since we have stepped out in faith and trusted God, of course, we were also being attacked.  We were all sick with a virus for a day, then the kiddos got a really bad cold which almost turned into pneumonia in Luby (Hannah).  Then our car was vandalized by teenagers.  They were never caught, so of course, we had to buy a new hood for our 2014 Honda Accord,  Not cheap.  Now it seems that the hubby's work hours, which are already insane, are going to increase.  But through it all we are continuing to trust in our God who has carried us through worse.  In the midst of it all, God is continuing to bless us.  We got a surprise a little over a week ago.  We are expecting #6.  Yep that's right.  Very much a surprise, but very much a blessing.  We normally wouldn't announce it this early, as I am almost 6 weeks, but 2 Timothy 1:7 says For God has not given us a spirit of fear. but of power and of love and of a sound mind.  We appreciate all the celebration and prayers of our prayer warriors.  We have already encountered some with an opinion of the amount of children we have and if you have a negative opinion, let it go or keep it too yourself.  We will keep you updated on Baby Frisk.  All for now.
