Moving On. . .

This past Sunday was our last Sunday at Macedonia. It was bittersweet, leaving the people we have grown to love there for a place we know we are called to be. I will tell you one thing, we have the absolute best Sunday School class anyone could ever ask for.

This past Sunday they had a pancake breakfast thing in our honor (ended up blowing the breakers, but hey that is half the fun huh). It was so special and they made SSSOOOO much food! I couldn't believe the generosity and love that was shown to Mark and me! It was beyond anything I had expected. I had truley made good friends there, that I was sad to leave and they were sad to have us go. The Sunday School was just a fellowship time, just sit around and visit with each other, which was wonderful. They then surprised us again with this little book full of notes and well wishes for us, as well as gathered around us and prayed for us. That was proabably the most special time of all. There is nothing like having good friends pray you out to somewhere you feel God leading you to go. They also announced it at the end of church and had people come by and wish us the best and say goodbye. All in all a bittersweet time, leaving a place with wonderful people, and being excited about heading out to where we are called to be. It is exciting and scary all at the same time.

I am still working on getting Mark and I a hobby. I don't know what is wrong with me lately (though I think it is senioritis) but I am just not wanting to do anything, nor do I have the energy in which to do it. But I know I need something other than school and reading that I do for fun. We have recently started playing tennis after he gets home, but I want something besides that. I dunno. . . I have been watching HGTV a lot and so I want to be creative in that way I think. I dunno!!

I also did Gillian's 20 min workout video (you know the kick butt girl trainer off The Biggest Loser), and "OH MY GOSH!!" Yikes! She is so hardcore, it is 20 mins of craziness with no breaks, I repeat, NO BREAKS. It was nuts!! Anyways, I did it, and liked it, and everything, until I woke up this morning, unable to straighten my left arm. The inside of my elbow is KILLING ME! Like completely! I have never done this before. Each side of my body is equally as sore except for that, which feels like I pulled it! I cannot straighten it, and do you know how many times you need to straighten your arms a day. Seriously putting on socks and shoes, getting cereal down, picking up your backpack, I mean the choices are limitless! HAHA!! Oh well, I still have to do it, but man I hope I can make it through!

We are going to miss you guys as well. It was our pleasure to do something special for you both!! We are so excited for what God has in store for you.

Are you doing the 30 Day Shred? From the sounds of it, it is working. I have a biggest loser workout video too that I need to do more often. Hope your arm feels better!
