I promised a repost of my Hawaii trip and I am finally getting around to it.  It has been a busy few weeks.  A few things I have been up to are work(of course).  January will mark four years of my being in the Air Force.  I have very much enjoyed my time this far am so blessed to have been serving during this time of economic struggle.  Through the AF God has supplied my every need and we have felt very few economic hick-ups in my household where I serve as the main bread winner while my husband is a full time student working on his Masters Degree in Divinity and volunteers with the local Hospice during some of his free time.  I have been growing a little weary with this day to day routine ( having had a change of scenery every year or two for the past 8 years or so after graduating high school).  Now I have somewhat settled down, am married and managed to find my way back to Ohio.  We have bought a home and expect to be here for at least another 3 years.  The closer I get to my 4 year mark the more excited I get to know that in just a couple short years my hubby and I plan to switch places and he will get to work while I work on my Master's degree and we will start trying to have children.  I just have 10 classes left for my bachelors degree, not too far off when every semester I knock out four classes.  I was sick this week and the doctor told me to stay home for a few days.  It was a lovely two days of homework and sewing.  It was such a LOVELY two days!  Please pray that I will not grow weary in doing good, but will continue serving our country with excellence and joy every day.

Well back to the subject.  Marie and Jon( showed me how to re arrange my blog and enlarge my pictures so I am doing a repost after receiving a few requests. Everyone should now be able to see the pictures.


  1. Jodi these pictures are AMAZING! What an gorgeous trip! It is soooooooo nice to hear about all the things happening in your life. I cannot believe you are coming on four years serving in the military this January! I understand your heart so much Jodi about being home and raising babies. I remember having that very same longing. You are so patient! I pretty much threw a temper tantrum I think! LOL! I do know that God directs our steps and has purpose in every step we take. I will be praying for you my sweet friend. You have been knocking out your education as well! I can't believe you are almost done with your bachelors! I am very glad you have had a few days of rest! I love and delight in you sweet Jodi! Miss you bunches!
