Start praying for me, friends
All of you who read my blog are my friends, so I'll just tell you what's on the top of my head right now. The fun is just starting for me, and I'm sure Misty may have the same feelings since she is a full time working Mom and college student, and children's pastor's wife.
I'm already trying to figure out how to juggle school starting on Tuesday, Dustin's follow up appointments (only one of them) on Tuesday, work, and more. This is just for an interview, not the show. If they make the show this season, that means it coinciding with a ton of things which would include...my Africa trip, Houston conference, yada yada yada. Not to mention...I have a church to keep going. Of course I'll still do all that, it will just require leaping a zillion tall buildings in a single bound.
I've never had to think twice about sacrificing for Jesus. But I have to think...a lot...about sacrificing for a reality show. (Especially one they might not win - no guarantees.) If they win, it could be the best thing to ever happen...or on the other hand if they don't, it could be...a nightmare. (At least for us wives. I know they'd have a great time, no doubt. But we'd have so much to juggle, I don't even WANT to think about it right now but can't help it.)
Well, there is one good thing about this that is in my mind right now. IF they end up doing this, and IF Misty and I do go through the balancing act that will be required for months time, I know one thing...her and I are in for an incredible reciprocal blessing!!! When it's all over, I think there will be no doubt some of the things I've been waiting for and "casually mentioning" to him will be reality in my life too. So maybe God is setting me up, to have "smooth sailing" on some things that have been a bit of a challenge to get Larry's agreement on? Only time will tell.
We're in for an interesting ride, folks. Pray about it with me. I always said, I wouldn't know WHAT to do if my husband got picked for one of these things. I've always known he wanted to do one. So, now is his chance. And if they get picked, I have to look at the bright side. Besides them fulfilling a dream, it hopefully also means that Misty and I will now have more of a carte blance to as well to fulfill dreams of our hearts that we've been waiting on. At that point, hopefully our "someday" will be...now.
This could all be a moot point as they might not get picked Thursday. But if they do...let the games begin.
