One of my dreams has come true.

It has been a while since I last posted. Life here has been so busy lately. Then I have to fight with everyone to get off the computer so I can use it. I've also been ill with a bad case of bronchitis. I've coughed so much I pulled muscles in my chest. I really hate being sick. All the kids were down with colds, so I expect they passed them on to me. We had to get a new keyboard. The old one was gross and the keys were sticking. Things are actually now slightly normal around here, that is if there is a normal, lol.

We finally got our insurance cards. I am so glad. Monday I will be on the phone making my appointments to my family doctor, cancer doctor and dentist. I'll get yelled at by all of them, lol. It'll be lots of blood work, most likely another petscan, and more teeth pulled, wooohoooooo I can't wait, NOT, lol.

My van goes into the shop on monday. The lady who hit my van caused 1189.00 in damages. I can see how she hit it though. It was very foggy, thick fog, and her defoggers hadn't done the job they should of done.

Ok, now I have to tell you what I have been doing. It has always been a dream of mine to become a minister. So for the past few month's I have really been getting into i, reading up on it, learning my bible all over again. And I am happy to announce that as of yesterday November 7, 2008, I am now an ordained minister. I feel so good about it. I cannot wait to get started. Well, Jim said for me to et ready he is taking me to staples. Above is my cards I ordered. Well, I'm getting the "Aren't you ready yet look", so I'd better go now. I hope everyone is having a great weekend. I'll be reading some blogs tonight after the kids go to bed.

    Because I'm an English freak I noticed a typo on your should be "Vows" not "Vowels" (vows for marriage) (Vowels as in a,e,i,o,u). The card is beautiful though.

  6. Congratulations, Cindy! Get ready ~ your life is going to change. I am a retired missionary and would not trade my years of service to the Lord for anything. I pray your chest will stop hurting soon. Blessings, Penny

  12. CONGRATULATIONS!!!! That is some truly amazing and wonderful news!!!

    Renewal of vowels? Is that something new???


  13. I am so thrilled and so proud of you and for you. Please tell us what program you went through though. I am called to be a teacher/preacher and have been looking online at some universities so I can study from home. Light University has the strongest pull on it for me right now. I am sorry all of you have been so sick. It has ran through this house too and Dirk missed several days of work because of it and I think I had it worse than any of them. I am so sorry when you get sick as you have it pretty hard yourself. Those business cards are so pretty. I know your family is very, very proud of you.

    Love you so much,

  14. Sure hope you and your entire family start feeling better soon...those colds are rough, for sure those lingering coughs.
    Sounds so nice about your being an ordained minister...congrats. Have a great week!!! and FEEL BETTER!

    Much Love Sybil xx
