By this time tomorrow, the Burns household will have a new member. We are SO excited....a precious new life to love and adore! It has been rather lonesome since #1 son moved out to college and #1 daughter is a full-time working woman with her own agenda. Now don't get me wrong - we have TWO wonderfully funny english bulldogs at home -patiently waiting for us at the door - we don't know what we would do without them. Cant imagine life without them....but once you have become smitten with a bulldog - one or two is not enough........SO tomorrow we bring home our THIRD - Benjamin Athens Burns - aka -Lil Ben - aka - Big Ben (he weighs 13 pounds and is 8 weeks old)!!!!! We are so in love with him already and we have yet to meet him. The breeder that he is coming from (same one as our other bullies) has done an excellent job of keeping us posted on his growth.

Tonight is like the night before Christmas and you dont think that morning is ever going to come! We are so blessed - I cant say that enough! And tomorrow - we indulge in pure satisfaction of loving another bulldog - God is SO good!

God is so Good!....

All the time and yet most of the time we take it for granted. This week has been an emotional rollercoaster for the Burns household. I have never seen someone so certain of what they were called to do on this earth like my husband. Coaching football has been his one and only desire as long as I have known him. He loves it! The past couple of years have seen a series of ups and downs as to his career - going from an all time high to an all time low with no fault of his own to blame. Anyway, he patiently waited on the Lord to show him the way. He responded with all the actions that a Christian should seeking wisdom and strength- praying faithfully for God to reveal the much needed answers - bottom line - he trusted in the Lord totally and completely.

To make a long story short and I still cant reveal the ending yet, I have seen God's handiwork in my husband over the last few years and I have never been prouder to say that I am in love with a God fearing - God loving man who seeks to honor and praise the Lord in all that he does and especially in coaching football.
