A Passionate Life

Greetings Everybody!

We just took this picture, hanging out in our living room on a lazy Sunday night.

We've been out of the blogging world for a while. I could tell you all our excuses, but it really doesn't matter.

So would you like to know what's been going on lately in the Hazleton's Blessed Life? Jeff is still working for a construction company, and loving his work. His boss is a godly man in our church, and one of his co-workers is a close friend of ours. He literally learns something new everyday, and loves to tell me about it when he comes home covered in sawdust or sheetrock or cement!

We are still working with the highschoolers at our church - that grooup of teenagers is first-class - they are so awesome. And we can take no credit for that!

We also still get to be involved in missions at our church, though we no longer get to do the traveling. Our role in the project allows us to help others go on trips, and so even while staying here, we get to see the Kingdom work being accomplished.

Maybe the biggest blessing of all right now is that our baby girl is due in 10 days! We really thought she'd be here sooner, but I guess she's in no hurry. You can read our Baby Blog for more on that.

Last Sunday - on Mother's Day - Jeff took this picture of me sitting in the rocking chair in the nursery. I got a little teary-eyed thinking of it as my FIRST Mother's Day. Wow, God is SO good to us.

Even though I loved my jobs (working as a part-time "nanny" of sorts, and working part time at the church office as Assistant to Student Ministries) I've recently ended both jobs to get ready for the baby to come. I've done many things in life, and now I'm entering a new chapter.

My new "job" will be MOM! And I also believe God is opening up a door for me to do some writing - a seed He planted in my heart long ago.

This Blessed Life is one in which we get to do the things we're passionate about. And I am definitely passionate about being a mother and a writer. I'm excited about what God has in store.

What about you? What are YOU passionate about?

    I'm not so sure I'm ready for Maggie yet. Shannon, you're just too cute with that belly - I'm gonna miss it! But, I guess Maggie will be cuter. Do you think I can be an adopted aunt? If so, have her call me Aunt Lori and not Aunt Goats - that just doesn't sound right, ya know? Luv you guys!!
