Hey there!

Thanks for stopping by my blog- a place where I share a bit of my photography, a bit of my life, and a lot of me! I am in love with the life that God has provided me. I live with my wonderful husband in central Oklahoma, in the town of Edmond. I am a wife, sister, daughter, and friend. I enjoy my work as a nurse and photographer. I adore sweets, nature, and my pesky (but cute) boxer, Honey. I feel that I am blessed with a passion for photography, and pray that I am able to bless others through it.

Thank you for being here and sharing the experience with me!

There are some changes happening at the Ofosu household! (And No, Mom, Darla, Roxanne and all you other crazy women, this is not a pregnancy announcement!).

First thing is that our roommate of 3 years has moved out. Ray knew Art from the church, and when Art's sister (whom he was living with before us) had to move, Ray offered him our spare bedroom. Out of all the roommates I had during college, I'd have to say Art is the best (sorry girls, but he helped put Christmas lights up, fixed the sink faucets to turn the right way, and was hardly ever around!). Art hasn't been sleeping here for a week now (he's still trying to find the time to move everything out), but it's crazy how weird it felt. It never occurred to me before, but I felt funny the Isaiah was sleeping on that side of the house by himself (he's never done that before.. not that Art would wake up to anything happening.. but it's just a mom feeling-). When Art came to pick up a few things Friday night, it felt so natural to share some of the homemade popcorn with him (it's the one thing Ray doesn't eat!) and sit down to catch up on things. I can't tell if Honey is missing Neiko or not, but she sure was excited to see Art. So old roomie, we'll miss you! Thanks for being a part of our lives :c)

Just because I think its cool, I'll share a few things that showed God's glory through this all. Lets begin with the end. Ray's sister recently graduated and asked Ray if she could move in if needed after her lease is up. I considered the idea of asking Art to leave so that family could move in, but decided that we would just try to make it work with us all in the house, so we never told Art. After that, he told us he'd be moving out (and the stories of God working through his end of the moving out is awesome as well). So he's out in perfect time for Judy to move in! Without any effort on our end.

Another time I find amazing was when Isaiah was born. I explained this in my birth story post, but Art left for a 10 day trip on the day Isaiah was born. He got to see Isaiah before he left, Ray and I had 10 days home alone with our son (Ray went back to work right after that), and I got the hang of nursing a bit better just as Art came back home. It was the most amazing timing that just puts a smile on my face.

Another situation was one of two times that I've clearly heard God's desire. I was driving home from Tulsa thinking about asking Art to leave (like I said, he was a great roommate, but we are still human and I had selfish thoughts every once and a while). After a weekend away, Ray and I went to lifegroup together where he asked for prayer on whether we should ask Art to leave. I tried to tell the group that we didn't need prayer, I knew that we weren't supposed to ask Art to leave. Ray had heard the same message earlier that day (while we were in different cities) but wasn't as sure of it as I was. It was so neat to realize what God had layed on both our hearts.
So again, thank you Art. And thank you to our great God for putting it on our hearts to open up our house. Here's little man with his first roommate :c)  

The other change (besides Isaiah's dirty diapers..)?
I've got a new job! That's right, after 7 years of working as a med-surg nurse at Deaconess, I was hired today at the Oklahoma Spine Hospital in the pain management department. Ever since my pregnancy, I have been wanting a change, so I finally stepped out and made it happen (this is the first time for me to ever leave a job without a reason like moving)! I appreciate all I've learned at Deaconess, and may stay there occasional part-time. We'll see what all this newness brings!

Wow, lots of new-ness, cousin! We've definitely got a lot to catch up on once we stop this phone tag. :) Can't wait!
