Well folks, my life at this point in time is insane! First a quick update, I am officially Mrs. Jennifer Newsham. The wedding has swiftly come and gone, but not so fast that Jon and I weren't able to enjoy it. Jon and I had a wonderful time with our friends and family who were able to be there to share such a special day with us. I have already posted pictures (thanks to Nate Watkins, who go them to us so quickly). The food was amazing (thanks to Jon's hard work) And I looked great (thanks to a friend who paid for me to go to a spa to get ready before the wedding). As far as I know, everything went as planned and there were only a few minor hicccups along the way. The father/daughter dance was my favorite, I don't believe I have ever seen my Dad love me more then on our Wedding Day.
After the wedding Jon and I took a well-deserved Honeymoon to Leavenworth, Washington. Jon and I had put so much of ourselves into this wedding that by the time it was over we didn't have much left to give. So we took a needed break. It was beautiful up in the snow, and it was nice to just get away from life for a while. However, dreams only last so long and sooner or later you have to wake-up. And we have...
Jon and I spent Christmas with my family in Washington, which was fun. We played games, and ate way to much food. There were many gifts and we were blessed not only at Christmas, but also by the generousity that people showed us at our wedding. We have been recieving and opening gifts all month, and have been overwhelmed by the kindness people have showed us.
Now that Christmas is over we have very little time, before we move to Texas. I am sitting in what used to be my apartment thinking about how bare the walls are. And I realize that leaving is a very hard thing for me to do, as it is for most people. We have so much to do that I am not sure that we are going to get everything done. It is hard, but Jon and I are also very excited to being a brand-new phase in our lives.
Please Pray for us (especially this week and next):
- That we will get into some kind of housing, because as of right now we do not have anywhere to live.
- As we travel, that we would get to Texas safely with no accidents.
- And after we get to Texas, please pray that we would not only find jobs, but friends as well; including a church to get connected with quickly.
I know this is long, but if you love us that won't matter. Thank You! We love you.
