"Summer Time"

Hope everyone is having a wonderful week! I have not been able to blog in a while, but I am back! I am sure everyone is excited these days with school finishing up and summer beginning. I know I am !! This will be the very first summer since high school that I have not had school or something major going on. Last summer I was in school and also planning a wedding which was fun but crazy! I am SO looking forward to days lounging my the pool, grilling out, the BEACH, watermelon, VBS, sweet time with my husband, and I could go on and on. I love the summer and cant wait to see what this summer has in store.
I am also VERY excited about celebrating my first anniversary with my WONDERFUL husband this summer. Last June was a wonderful and busy month but I am loving this June even more because I am LOVING being the wife to the most Godly, loving, caring, supportive, and precious husband in the whole entire world. I fall in love with Caleb more and more each day and I am humbled at the fact that God chose to graciously give him to ME! We will be celebrating at the beach and we are SO looking forward to our time away. It is hard to believe it has been a year but it has definately been the best year of my life. As I look back over the year I am amzed at how good God has been to us and how he has provided EVERYTHING we have needed each step of the way. We are SO blessed and grateful for how good God has been to us.
We are looking forward to a great Memorial Day weekend as I know all of you are as well. We will be celebrating by the pool with both of out families and then on Memorial Day we are running a 5K which we are super excited about. It is something we love to do together!
Hope each of you have a wonderful rest of the day and a GREAT weekend!

HI! I have not blogged in a long time. We have been very busy and when I have had the time to sit down I was too tired to blog! : ( I hope everyone is having a wonderful Saturday. As most of you probably know by now, we had some terrible weather here in Alabama on Wednesday. I had to go to the doctor that day so Caleb and I were on the road most of the day and God truly protected us in a mighty way. We made it home fine and our home and homes around us were not even touched at all. Families that lived twenty minutes from us were hit and it has been devastating. A family from our church lost their home. They were very blessed to be able to retrieve several of their things but their house is not liveable. We went and helped them yesterday and I could not believe me eyes. The pictures and even the videos do not do justice until you see it with your own eyes and then you realize just how powerful these tornadoes are. There are so many people hurting in out state but it has been incrediable to see how everyone has stepped up and is helping out. I have been reminded over the last couple of days that we serve a God that is BIGGER and STRONGER than anything we will ever face and that NOTHING catches him my surprise!
Please continue to pray for our state so many are without their homes and cars and it is hard to even know where to begin.

On a happier note, hope you all had a wonderful Easter. Caleb and I had a great frist Easter as husband and wife. We were able to spend it with family and friends that we dearly love. We had gorgeous weather here and we spent most of the day outside! We even recieved an Easter basket from my parents! Yay for Cadbury Eggs!
Here is a pic of our first Easter.

Today Caleb, my sister in love, and I did our first 5K! We were sooo excited and proud of ourselves. My sis in love and I did it in 32 minutes and Caleb did it in 28. We are doing another one in a couple of weeks and we are planning on improving our time. I absolutely loved it and had so much fun. Look forward to sharing with you our next time!

We pray each of you have a wonderful Saturday and a great Sunday!

"Vacation to the Smokies"

Hope everyone is having a WONDERFUL day! Caleb and I are on our way home from a great trip to the Smokey Mountains with Caleb's family. We left on Friday and we just relaxed, shopped, ate, and enjoyed each others company. We had perfect weather! On Saturday it was in the 80's! It was so nice to get away for a couple of days. I love my sweet "in loves" and it was fun getting to vacation with them once again. Hope to post pictures of the trip in the next couple of days.
One of the many things that God has been teaching me lately(again) is IT's NOT ABOUT ME! I definitely have to remind myself of this everyday and most of the time several times a day. It is so easy to get caught up in our own schedule and then get upset if it does not play out the way we thought it would. God's plan is ALWAYS better than mine so I am learning to just step out of the way and let him do what he does best! God is SO good to us! I am thankful for each breath that he always me to take. May I be a witness for him on the days that I have left on this earth. I don't ever want to get caught up in my schedule and miss opportunities to tell people about the One True God that loves us unconditionally. May I always be willing to plant the seed and then trust God to do the rest.

Hope each of you have a Terrific Tuesday! Be a blessing to someone today!

"My JOY comes from the Lord"

Hope everyone is having a great day! It is a little cooler here today but the sun is shining bright! I am loving this verse today: "The JOY of the Lord is my strength" Nehemiah 8 :10. On the days that I just can't go anymore or nothing seems to be going the way I though it would I remember this verse! God has given me far MORE than I will ever deserve and knowing that I will spend eternity with him brings pure JOY to my life! I pray this verse encourages you today as much as it has me!
Caleb was out of town Monday and Tuesday and everything went well! Praise the Lord! I was SO glad to have him back home. Yesterday we were able to spend the day together and it was very nice. We slept in(on a Wednesday!!!!), went to the gym, and just laid around and watched movies. We even got to ride to church together on a Wednesday which is a TREAT because Caleb always comes straight to church from work! We were so thankful for the day together. We are ready for the weekend though as I'm sure you are too! Friday is DATE NIGHT! yay Saturday we are keeping our sweet nephews and we cannot wait. Hopefully I will have lots of pictures to post.
Don't have much to post about today but I pray each of you have a wonderful rest of the day!
Abundant Blessings, Kayla
