In all Things Praise Him

Two days ago was a great night!  Aaron found out that night he got a full-time teaching job for high school math. It's an innercity school and it's going to be rough and he knows that.  But we're praising God that Aaron can drop one of his part time jobs!  Which means he'll only have 2 14 hour days a week. Praise God!  We're so excited to have Daddy home more often. 

We also will be moving soon.  This news is causing us to move sooner!  Aaron starts on March 19th, so we are planning to hopefully be moved in and unpacked by then!  We will have our own washer and dryer!  So incredibly exciting after 3 years!!! Along with that we have been so blessed that Zoe won't really need clothes until she's about 2.  We've also not had to buy any diapers so far!  And when we move we're going to be doing cloth diapers. 

God is SOOOO Good!!!
Our precious 5 week old!
Then yesterday happened.  Most of the day was great, I packed 4 boxes, Aaron fixed our broken sink with some help, and my Mother-in-love and I took Zoe to do some errands.  We got to the parking lot, and the next thing I know, I start flying towards my little girl, and the jeep is turning.  Someone ran a stop sign and slammed into the door where I was sitting.  My first thought is I hope Zoe is ok.  The guy was going fast enough to spin us and send us up onto the sidewalk. Zoe was crying so I took her out to comfort her. Mom-in-love was on the phone calling in the incident.  She came around to check on Zoe and I the guy picked up his headlights and took off in those 5 seconds she was checking on us.  One witness tried to go after him but couldn't catch him.  Then the paramedics came.  They suggested sending Zoe to the hospital. So even though I thought she was ok we rode in the ambulance to the hospital.  She was examined and was fine.  Praise God.  I escaped with a few bumps and bruises but, nothing big and the same for Mom unit.  Unfortunately, we can't say the same for the jeep.  It's undriveable. We also have to get a new carseat but I have to call the company today.  The carseat is still in tact, but once in an accident, you're supposed to send it back.  

But, you know what??? In all of this God is still good!!!  We're so thankful to have this little girl safe.

And at 5 weeks she no longer fits in this outfit from Aunt Kristin, so when she starts playing with dolls, she can have a ballerina outfit for her doll :)

So thankful for God's protection!

Proverbs 19:23
The fear of the LORD leads to life: Then one rests content, untouched by trouble.



  1. Wow, scary! I'm glad that everyone is fine. It is definitely always a good idea (especially with children) to get them checked after an accident. If you need to borrow a car seat until you have a new one, let us know.

    Congratulations on the job! That is great news that I know you have been waiting a long time for. If you want help moving let us know.

  2. Praise God for His blessings!

  3. So glad Aaron got a job! And that you're safe! And I love little Zoe's ballerina outfits :-). Her shoes in the first picture are adorable!
