That's great, Joanne! I know for us, working together on something (be it a Sunday School lesson, debt reduction or whatever) gives us a sense of "team", which is a good thing.

Looks like you all are making good use of your "one year" :-)

Got your comment, and so appreciate the prayers!


What does he do, if I may ask? I am a relatively new reader so I don't know all your scoop just yet;)

Life--embraced! Love you! And thank you so much for thinking of means the world to me, friend! And? It's been a hard week and brought a smile to my face.


Hello Joanne,

I apologize that I have not been in touch for a long time. Trust me when I say I think about you all the time. I could not wish you on time but I hope that you, Toben and the girls had a very Merry Christmas and wonderful holidays. Also, hope the new year brings new happiness, sunshine and brightness in your life and your beautiful family.I am so happy for you that have joined Toben at his work. What is going to be your role and what will you be doing?
Hoping to be more frequent now in my responses. Sending you the best!


Wow--I hope that all goes really well! Please give us more info later on how the homeschooling is working in just those morning hours--something I am trying to achieve here at home too! : )

And Joanne, you just won a blog award! Come by my blog if you want to claim it. : )

Hope your day is a GREAT one!

That's awesome!!


That is great that Toben has a job you in which can work together. My husband is a Marine Surveyor...aft, port...I know nothing. God always provides for our needs. Have fun working.


How great that ya'll were able to see that - and hey - it's something that you work WELL together! Many couples do not! The Lord will work it out - the schedules - and if you and Toben are growing closer - then that is great!


I'm impressed that the two of you were able to figure that out. When things aren't going well it is sometimes very hard to find solutions that make sense. Yeah for your team!
