Spring has sprung!

Hopefully the plants and flowers in Washington have returned to a "normal" schedule! The poor things were so confused a couple weeks ago! It was sunny, so everything started blooming then it SNOWED!!! Crazy!

Life is good here in the NW. We here in the Minch house have been reveling in God's goodness to us. He has poured out so many blessings! Most recently, God has blessed us by giving Jef two monthly contracts & a one-time job. I think I told about the job before, it will be a good amount of money and he should begin working on it soon - as soon as the computers come from the manufacturer. The two monthly contracts will be a good income for us. They are not enough to cover all our monthly expenses, but with savings from the job, we'll be ok. God has totally been teaching me about trusting Him on a daily basis. Still need to read 2 Kings 25, you know, about Jehoiachin. :) But I am certainly learning about God's daily allowance for us. He always provides. There was a time when I thought I should wait to pay some bills, but I remembered about the daily allowance. So, I paid the bills, which depleted our bank account by a good bit, enough to worry me a little. That day I went to the post office and picked up a check! It was a small lesson, but a very good one to learn!

Everything is going well here. We cleaned the house a TON and were able to get rid of a bunch of stuff. Now the house is easier to keep clean and I am learning how to keep it tidy. I've never been a very good homemaker, but I am learning. :) God is faithful. Jef is studying and working. For a while he had a job every day! :) Today and tomorrow he has work to do. Then there will be lots of work when the computers for the job come in. The boys are doing well. They are learning lots and having fun. We are working on getting out of the house more. Since Jef's job doesn't take him away from us each day, we can go and do stuff. So we are trying to enjoy the outdoors when the weather permits.

Other than that - not much else is going on. We are getting ready for Jonathan's birthday party at the end of the month. He's going to be EIGHT. I cannot believe that he is already 8. Man, I feel old this year!

    I cannot believe we've known each other THAT long! Wow. You need to come visit me.
    Actually, I'm dying to visit you. Is that little shop with the kitchen stuff still on the square in Woodstock? :)
    Yes, I know, I need to change the Merry Christmas. Only thing is, Jef has to do it. He's at work. When he's not working, he's studying for work. Maybe I can get him to change it tomorrow. :)
