its been a while

So, there is really a lot going on in our lives right now(mostly good.)

Since Thanksgiving we have driven the 7 1/2 hour drive from New Orleans to Covington GA 3
times and flown it 1 time. Wow. I miss our family, but I'm glad we're not doing that again till April! We had a great time with family at Christmas. We are able to spend 6 days in Covington hangin with the fam and seeing a few friends and it was
soo nice!

A week later we were back. Paul's mom had brain
surgery on New Years Eve. Praise the Lord that she came through it and is recovering well. Its a slow process, but she has determination and we all have faith that God will give her strength through her recovery.

On January 16, our new niece Adelaide Evalia Butts was born. She is amazing! I'm so thankful that I was able to leave work to drive to see her on her birthday! I love my neices and nephews so much. Thats probably the worst part about living
in New Orleans. We miss out on a lot with the
kids. I know that we are where God wants us, so
we make the absolute most of the time that we
get to spend with the kiddos! Little Evie is doing
great! She's over a week old now and her big sisters absolutely love having her around!
Finally!!!! Paul got to start seminary this semester!
YAY!!! We are very excited about this(can't you tell?) He's taking 15 hours, so please pray for him as he spends every waking moment either in class, working, studying or reading. Its going to be an adjustment, but he's the smartest person I know. I know he is going to be a great student! I'm also taking 2 classes online this semester. I'm excited
to be back in the game as well! This is going to be
a huge adjustmanet for both of us in our marriage.
Time for each other will be limited, but we will be
making the most of the time that we can spend
with each other.
This is all part of our journey with God.
Who knows what he has in store for us next! :)
much love,
