The work of contentment

This week has been one of those weeks when you wish your life was something other than it is...well at least in some ways at least.

My lists of wishes this week:

I wish I lived in Houston "right down the street" from my parents, all my sisters, my brother (in my wish world he has moved back from California), my in-laws, even my sister's in-laws!

I wish we had a second car I wish we had a second car that was paid for in cash. Then, I could leave the house even if Ethan and I don't get up and leave the house with Joel at 5am.

I wish I had real friends at Fort Campbell I wish I could have friends as wonderful and affirming as those I made at Fort Benning.

I wish I knew if what I'm wanting to wish away is God's refinement process for the work that lays usually I should probably stop complaining.

...everyone may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all his toil-
-this is the gift of God.
Ecclesiastes 3:13 
I have a lot to be thankful for, a lot, but this week I wish for a few changes.

Now of course if you want to do your part in granting my wishes you could come visit us at Fort Campbell. Come know you want to! I have an historical aircraft tour with your name on it, plus LOTS of Ethan kisses/chewing on you ready whenever you say the word.
