It's the Weekend....

We had an a good day yesterday...Macey and I got up early and went to the Jonas Brothers concert at the Today show...It was CRAZY...so crowded...we got there a little after 5, and still could only see the back of their heads...from a distance...but, we still had fun...and she was happy to get to hear them...along with the rest of NYC...hee hee...After that she had a go see with Children's Place....She had a blast at this go see...It seemed very promising...but we won't know anything unless they call us...so once again, we are not going to get our hopes up...Most go sees consist of going in and getting your photo taken, filling out some paper work, and that is it...This time they asked me if we could hang out for a little bit, and they called Macey back and put her in 2 different children's place outfits...and took some more pics of her...Macey loved it..she loved the outfits...and loved the attention....She really would LOVE to book this one...so I have been praying...not that we haven't been doing that anyway...

There is nothing like gettting taken out of your comfort zone to learn how we "should be depending on God"...Macey and I both are learning this...He is everything to us right now...talk about life changing....this trip has been!!! I would have never thought that I would quite my job, move to NYC for the summer, for my daughter to pursue her dreams, and do it by myself...CRAZY! God is in control...and we know it...and it feels so right to be in His will...It was SO hard for me to give up my job-knowing how "easy" of a job it was (to be in the nursing profession....) especially with so many people "losing their jobs" and I was supposed to give mine up????? That is how God works...we are not supposed to understand it.....Now, I know that I have to find another job when I get back home...but through prayer and much Bible study while we have been in NY...I realize that God was ready for me to move on...Being "comfortable" sometimes causes us to be "lazy"...spiritually that is.....So, when your life takes a 180 and you are no longer "comfortable"...talk about learning to depend on Him...He sure does know how to bring us closer to Him...I am glad that I chose to follow his will...It sure was hard for me, but I now know why...and the peace that you have from being in his will...is unbelivable....God is so Good....All the time....

After her Children's Place go see, we decided since we had been up since 4, it was lunch time, but we were in the mood for some breakfast food....so we ate lunch at Stage Deli...Breakfast for lunch...yummy...Macey had chocolate chip pancakes, and I had banana...We had a good lunch...Trying to save money, we eat in the room most of the time-so it was really nice to go to a sit down restauraunt and just enjoy...

We then decided to head downtown, and check out the World Trade Center site...We walked around, took some pics, and just was amazed by how much things had changed since we were here in October....This area is just so emotional for me...Thinking about the people that lost their lives, it is so sad...Macey wanted to go in to the Memorial Museum, but we think we will wait and do that when James and the boys get here...Ian loves history, I think he would like the museum...

We headed to Century 21 (good cheap shopping)-a retail store with lots of brand names for cheap...but talk about crowded...good grief...not sure if it worth it or not...but Macey wanted some croc flip flops and they had them for 12 dollars...so we headed in for her to get those...She got them, and we headed back to the room....

We were so tired...decided to spend the afternoon, reading, watching tv, and talking...We had a great day...This city life is gettting easier...We are getting the hang of it...I asked Macey yesterday, if she does well this summer, and they ask her to do this again...would she be interested? and she said "definitely"....(she just doesn't want to miss children's camp at church again) Hee hee...I don't blame her...

Well, our friends, Brian and Lisa are coming today...We are excited about seeing them...and hope they enjoy getting to spend some time in the city...I am sure they will be so busy trying to get it all in-during the week they are here....Gonna go and get things picked up around this tiny apartment of ours...shouldn't take very long...good thing about small spaces....

God Bless...

Watched The Today show so I could get a glimpse of you. Boy what a crowd. They said it was the largest crowd they have every had. One little girl next to the stage had been there since Thursday and another since 3:ooAM. I didn't see you guys but I knew that Macey was in 7th heaven.
Glad to hear that everything is going well in New York.
