The Only Constant in Life is Change

Science tells us that there many constants in this world, many of which I memorized during college.  Like many things in life, there are often exceptions to these "laws" of nature.  New research will allow for refining of these numbers or sometimes even completely nullify them.  Fortunately for us there is one thing that we know will never change.  The writer of Hebrews reminds us that Jesus Christ is the same today, yesterday, and tomorrow.  With all that said, there is going to be some change taking place in our lives.  I found out last Thursday that I was being laid off, along with 27 others, from the Engineering firm I have worked for the last 2 1/2 years.  Even though the workload had made it pretty apparent that this would happen, it was still quite a shock to the system.  I am actively seeking work and we have no doubt that I will be able to find a job.  However, there are always so many unanswered questions.  When will I find a job?  Who with?  Will we have to relocate?  Will the pay be the same?  Will we have to sell the house?  As so many of you who have been through this before have shared with us, we know that it will work out and it will be ok.  God is faithful and he will take care of us.  We just ask that you pray for us during this time and that you would ask God to give us peace, and to make clear the path he has set out for us.  Thank you for all of your encouragement.  We would be so much worse off if it wasn't for our family, friends and church family.  We love you all.

The moment you've all been waiting for........Pictures!

The wonderful folks over at Scott Photography, along with the modern wonders of the internet, have prepared a wedding photo viewing location just for you to enjoy. Stop by their blog for more details or use the direct link here. After searching for our name, you will need a password and email address to view the pictures. The password was on that little card at the reception table, but since I'm such a nice guy I'll let you in on a secret. The password is ......... spreadsheet. So head on over and check it out. If you can't stand another day without that lifesize portrait of us in your living room, you can order prints directly from the website. I will leave a link on the right hand column under "photos" for later viewing as well.

3 weeks and counting

What's so hard about this marriage thing, anyway?  Ok, ok, so maybe we haven't quite fully experienced all the different aspects of marriage just yet.  All things considered, married life is wonderful.  There is nothing quite like sharing your life with your best friend.  (insert awwws or regurtations here)  Anyway, the first week of January will probably represent the start of what we will call "normal" life.  The holidays are over, traveling is done for a while, I'm going back to work again (I'd already been back after the honeymoon), and Stefanie is going to start another long term sub position in a pre-K class.  We are looking forward to a little more routine, but will try to keep things from getting too scheduled and dull.  As the questions and greetings shift from "how was the honeymoon?" to "when are the babies coming?" you can rest assured that we will keep you up to date and give you all the information we deem necessary.  So, stay tuned.....The best is yet to come.
