Well, if you haven't noticed yet, I (Nicole) have been posting on the blog lately. Angel has been working hard at his new job, trying to understand how everything works....or at least trying to get everything working (like his office computer :) ) The holiday time was slow since many were on leave and now things are kicking in. Angel is away for 2 weeks with his unit for field training...I guess this means more MREs (Meals Ready to Eat) for him. My mom is coming for a visit, which everyone here is excited about!!! We wish Pop-Pop could visit too but someone has to work.
We are excited about where God has placed us! When Angel filled out his paperwork for the Army, we listed our top three choices of bases where we would want to be stationed. Angel and I prayed that no matter what we wrote on the list, that God would place in where He wants us to be For Such A Time As This, and I can see this being true (though Texas was not at the top of my list) Be encouraged today that wherever you are God can use you. Your attitude in your situation determines more than the place where you are. If you are not sure what the next step in your future may be, place it before the Lord and allow Him to lead and guide you. Just remember, when you are committed to serving God, you may end up in places you never imagined.
Don't forget to continue to pray for our troops and their families. Many are deployed for 15 months and there are thousands of families holding down the homefront. They need your prayer, support and encouragement each day as they do life. Encourage someone today and expect God to move in your life too.
