Well, if you didn't already know this, I'm going to repeat myself again. My husband is the most amazing musician in the entire universe! Yes this handsome man right here whom I love oh so very much!CLICK HERE! To help you understand who contributed what to the song, Dustin is singing (Phil has a super deep bass voice which is amazing, but no good for this type of song) and he wrote the piano part. Phil wrote the lyrics based on a recurring character that shows up in his dreams named Rose, the drums, and any extra musical parts. He also wrote the melody. If you didn't know this, he went to school for recording arts so he understands how to record and master the songs and there is a lot more to it than you'd think! :D
Also, speaking of Phil's musical recording and making abilities, he is recording one of my really good friend Andee sing with her beautiful voice an album of spiritual adoption songs! And probably some other songs too eventually! Which is so awesome! She is incredibly amazing, not only in her singing, but just as a person (if you know the absolute best guy in the entire world that has absolutely no flaws that actually deserves someone as amazing as Andee, please send him my way so I can evaluate him and set him up because she deserves the best dude ever!!!). If you haven't read my previous posts, she made the ultimate sacrifice for her birth daughter by giving her two absolutely adorable, loving, and awesome parents who take amazing care of her! Why did she do this? Because she is the most amazing mother in the entire world and knew that she was not able to give her daughter what she needed at that time in her life. She is the most selfless person I've ever met! So it's really awesome to be able to help her record an album of adoption songs because it has so much feeling coming from a birth mother! She's also just a really cool girl! I love hanging out with her! She works at IMC with me and that's how I met her :D.
Another new development is that we got a new car! It was really inexpensive! Only 3,000!! It is a white 2003 Mitsubishi Lancer. I would take a picture of it for this post, but it snowed so I'll just wait for the snow to melt.
Lastly, Phil and I have been thinking about buying a house soon and last night I was looking at estimates of how much we could get a loan for and I was feeling a little discouraged about the whole situation. Not because we can't afford it, but we know we can get to a point where we have a really low monthly payment if we just save up some more money and give it more time. Of course I just want to move to one last place and stay there for a long time, so when I realized that it might be better to just wait, it was depressing me. So I felt like I should read the scriptures and I turned to 2 Samuel Chapter 7 in the bible and it literally made me laugh out loud and made me completely stop worrying about the whole situation. Ah the power of the scriptures! So let me explain: In this chapter Jesus tells the king, Nathan (haha yeah I know!) to build him a house because ever since Moses left Egypt and was wandering in the wilderness, his house had been a tent. If you recall the story of Moses when they were wandering in the wilderness, every time they would stop to camp out for a while, they would set up the tabernacle (which in our day would be considered the temple) which was a tent. So it was a traveling temple. So Jesus was pretty much saying that it was time for them to build him a permanent home instead of the temporary one he had been dwelling in for so long. Kind of like the temporary feeling of an apartment as opposed to a home. Then I came across this verse: "Moreover I will appoint a place for my people Israel, and will plant them, that they may dwell in a place of their own, and move no more; neither shall the children of wickedness afflict them any more, as beforetime," I was just laughing because I was like wow ok! How about I just stop worrying about trying to do everything myself and start relying more on the Lord?? Yeah that's a great idea because OBVIOUSLY he knows my needs and wants and knows how I feel and wants me to be happy! And so I am absolutely ok with whatever needs to happen because I will have a place to live and move no more in the near future!!! Whether that's in 6 months or 6 years (hopefully not that long, but still) I know my family and I will be happy no matter what! Oh and in a strange way I relate to the end of that verse where it says "shall the children of wickedness afflict them any more as beforetime." not because I've been afflicted by wicked people, but I just think I won't be afflicted by hearing music through the floor or ceiling, or by the neighbors constantly smoking outside ruining days when I just want to have a nice little valentine's dinner on my porch with my hubs! That's kind of a weird way to relate it because obviously that's not that much affliction, but it gives me hope!
One last thought that I just really need to express! NOTHING in this whole world feels better than having a terrible migraine and taking medicine that COMPLETELY takes it away! BEST FEELING EVER!!! :D :D :D Here's the deal though, when you're pregnant, you can't take ibuprofen (technically just in the third trimester), but tylenol does absolutely nothing for my headaches!! So, (promise not to judge me till you hear me out) I learned when I had a gall bladder attack with Nate that you can take Lortab! I still have a bottle of it from my gall bladder attack back in September of '08 (yeah I'm not addicted to it. In fact I had a refill on it that I never refilled). So when I get a headache I just take one and BAM! It's gone like *that*!! I love it! It's actually one of the least strong narcotic out there so it doesn't really do anything to me other than cure my pain so that's why I'm not addicted. I'm just so thrilled that my headache is gone, I had to tell someone!
