Just keep singing...

The USMC has put us in a less-than-pleasant situation, as many of you are very familiar with.  To be honest, I've been struggling more than I thought I would with this situation.  I'm trying to take each day as it comes until this little hiccup is over (in just a few days).  My only consolation has been trying to rely on God's sovereignty, the joy of our 12 day old son, and knowing that this will be over soon.

Another rainy day
I can't recall having sunshine on my face
All I feel is pain
All I wanna do is walk out of this place
But when I am stuck and I can't move
When I don't know what I should do
When I wonder if I'll ever make it through

I gotta keep singing
I gotta keep praising Your name
Your the one that's keeping my heart beating
I gotta keep singing
I gotta keep praising Your name
That's the only way that I'll find healing

Can I climb up in Your lap
I don't wanna leave
Jesus sing over me
I gotta keep singing

"Keep Singing" -Mercy Me

Birthday Ball...

It's almost time to celebrate the most sacred day to all Marines---their birthday.  With just a few weeks until the big day, I have begun obsessing about what to wear to the birthday ball.  Unfortunately, I'm running into the same problem that I do every year.

The Culprit: dress blue pants, winter version.  OK, ladies.  Don't get me wrong.  I LOVE the Marine Corps dress blues on Hubby...from the top up (unless it's summer, then the white pants and top are enough to make me weak in the knees).  I know there's all kinds of history associated with these blue pants, but they just aren't my favorite.  And they are nearly impossible to coordinate with a fabulous dress for the Birthday Ball.    

In my humble fashion opinion, for picture-worthy coordination, you can really only wear red, white, or black, which leaves fewer options than I'd like.

So in the spirit of playing Cinderella, for my dream ensemble, if money and a shopping black hole around our duty station weren't obstacles, this is something I would love to wear.  

This is my "just for fun" creation!
