Last night something dreadful happened.

It was inevitable.

We knew it would happen eventually.

It still stinks.

We have had our little dog Kauzie (short for Kosmo Kramer) since November. He is a quiet, adorable, sweet, almost perfect dog . He hardly ever barks, poops outside, sleeps next to ty and I. Quite frankly he is our child.

The apartments that we are living in doesnn't allow pets (oops) and because the apartment was switching management we figured we'd be ok having our little dog live with us. The apartment was built in the 60's and still has that great dirt brown shag carpet. Kauzie can do not harm to this apartment. It's pretty rough. But the price is good for us.

But the bad news came last night when we found out that our manager was told about the dog. So after a talk with him we think we have to move. He didn't say move out now but he said we can't live hear and have a dog. Dang it!

Kauzie is our little therapy. He makes us laugh and gives me something to take care of.

And so today we're apartment shopping. We need that job to come soon! Pray for us would you?

and so we wait....

So Tyler and I are still waiting patiently to hear about job news. Living with no income is tricky- especially when student loan payments start soon!

I kind of wonder if God is letting us live in limbo for awhile. I know that he is just waiting for me to be patient and content with the unknown before he shows us a job! My dad always says the coolest thing to try and calm my ever worrying spirit- Psalms 119:105 talks about the word of God being a light unto my path- now, aside from being a verse that was memorized in awanas for extra awana shares this verse is loaded with encouragement for ty and my present situation. the verse talks about lighting our path- not about lighting our entire journey at the present moment. The lord guides us with just enough to get us to the next step. It causes us to always trust and rely on him. This resonates so true. Having grown up in the country- being far from lights- it's easy to think about not being able to see at all. But having that flashlight gives you enough light to watch where you step.

We know that God will provide! AMEN!!!
