Happy Valentine's day!

Happy Valentines day! I was never REALLY into the day... and still it just seems like another day. As Clint would put it "Do you really need a day or reason to show your husband or wife that you love them?" So today hasn't consisted of much... we bought Kierstyn's birthday present! She's getting the grow with me kitchen and I'm so excited about it! (I'm contemplating putting it in the real kitchen so she can cook with us) and then we went to dinner with our good friend Ryon. Now the boys are out back just relaxing and smoking cigars. So it's been a pretty good day!

Friday the 13th...

I don't know why... but Friday the 13th has never been a good day for me. This year was no exception only this year it was more hitting an emotional wall. It just seemed that everything that has been building up in my life finally fell over right on top of me. I cried and screamed and yelled and swore that I was going to go and yell at people responsible (only to realize that would inevitably make things worse. So after I talked to my wonderful friend Jess, I let it go. Then I opened my Bible and read Matthew 6:34

"So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself.Each day has enough trouble of it's own."

And I immediately felt better. I was so busy worrying about the things that will happen in the upcoming tomorrows that I stopped giving my worries to the one person strong enough to handle them. He's answered so many of my prayers lately I feel guilty for not immediately thinking to stop and pray.
