The Eyes of Night...

I should be in bed, but there's so much on my mind, so many things to do. I have been thinking about all I have to do, but forget about it as soon as I remember. I finally decided to write them down as they fly into my head, and came out with a list as long as my arm. However, I've slowly been plugging away at things tonight. Jake and I got our passport photos taken, and he looks as handsome as ever. I was debating about whether to go to Wal-Mart or not, but in the end picked Blacks; I'm glad we did, because we received a free passport case with our photos! God is good in providing the little things.

I am also excited tonight because we got our beautiful wedding invites from the printer AKA Jake's brother Josh. My lovely friend Katie designed the border beautifully, and Josh put it all together, as well as drawing up the maps. He knows some people since he is in graphic design, and ended up giving us the invitations for free! What another blessing, and I am totally indebted to all the people who have been by our side throughout this whole engagement. I have been busy getting ones ready for people at the school, and thinking with sadness about all the people that we can't invite to the reception. There is only so much one can do, and sometimes you can't have everyone you want there.

My allergies have been bothering me so much in the past few days, and my eyes have been watering and blood shot. Tonight is the first time in a while that I actually feel ok, but my eyes are still burning. I am so excited for the week-end. I am envisioning Jake and I spending the day addressing and stuffing invitations, and just resting and relaxing from this long week. He started a new job working overnights, and today his body refused to let him sleep. He was so exhausted, so please keep him in your prayers.

I still have not found a full time job, but I have been working full time in the office for Susan. I am so grateful for this job, and although I am tired, I will keep persevering. Please pray that I will find a job soon, as I am getting somewhat discouraged. However, I know that the Lord guides my path, and He will provide for me as He has done in the past. Blessed be His Name!

Hi darling
Life can be pretty overwhelming at time when everything is piling up and you don't know where to start and especially when you have deadlines to meet.
We will pray for you and Jake as you work on all the details that are pressing in on you .
We will also pray that you will soon find a full time job but we are thankful that you have the office job for the time being.
Sorry to hear that the allergies are still so bad and I can sympathize with your eye problems as I am coming up for my own eye injections tomorrow and have been in quite a bit of distress this past couple of weeks myself
We love you so much and home to talk to you soon
Lots of love NAN
