Hello! I haven’t blogged about anything personal in a really long time. That started simply because I didn’t have the time. I felt I was spending so much time in front of my computer for work stuff, that I didn’t want to take more time away from my family and blog about us. I wanted to be immersed in ‘us’ instead of my computer. It was a hard decision but one I needed to make. Thank you for bearing with me through that time and allowing me to just post about work. It was a good break for me!
This weekend Brian and I are headed to Washington for the Pacific Lutheran football game. We had talked about bringing Logan with us, but after thinking it through, realized it would be a much-needed break for he and I to spend some time together. I don’t have my hopes too high that we’ll get a lot of time together, but being there Friday morning through Sunday morning will allow for a few moments together (where he isn’t practicing, holding meetings w/ the kids, going through the game plan w/ the other coaches), which is a lot during football season! Ha! I am also doing all of my traveling with the team – yep, flight w/ the team. Bus ride w/ the team. Hotel w/ the team. It is going to feel like the good ‘ol days when I helped manage the football team and did this with them a lot. Except now I’m a coaches wife – which feels oh so different.
Despite how much or little time I’m going to get with Brian, I’m excited. I’m excited about being away, about being in a hotel (I’m in love w/ hotels – did you know this? Doesn’t matter what kind…just love ’em). I’m excited about Bri waking up to go and have breakfast with the team, and I can just stay in bed and do my morning devotional. I can mosey down to get some coffee, maybe go sit in the hot tub for a while, take a long shower. Ahhhh. I can’t wait. I am going to spend some serious time in prayer and reflection. It is going to be some ‘jacquelyn-time’ which I need right now.
I am making some pretty big decisions when it comes to work (photography/Target). I am finding my balance, which is definitely needed. I have been in a ‘season of waiting’, as I so lovingly have been calling it, for a long time and I continue to press into this season and what it might hold for us as a family. Right now I don’t really know. I know my priorities have been a little off for a while and the Lord clearly spoke to me about them. So now I wait. I’ll have more to update you on later, I am sure, but when I have zero idea. And I’m okay with that.
Because this is a lot of reading for you – I had to post a few pics 🙂 They are on Facebook so some of you have already seen them – but they are the most accessible to me right now. Logan continues to bring joy to our lives everyday. We are working on some discipline techniques right now as he is definitely in ‘that’ stage….the stage of testing his limits. In addition to a season of waiting, I’m in a season of patience. Amazing how the Lord brings us through them.
Happy Fall – I hope you are able to watch some football outside. Enjoy the smell of fall, the leaves, the crispness of the air, ahhh, love it. Bless you today.
