Last week right after we posted, I found out that I (MaeLee) got accepted to Auburn University! Praise be unto the Lord for this blessing! We are both so excited about this opportunity and blessing. God most certainly knows what He is doing. Today, Tim and I went on a campus tour on Auburn’s campus. We were able to learn more information about the school and see all the buildings. I was telling Tim this weekend that I never would had thought that my undergraduate degree would come from Auburn University. I am just completely humbled by God and the blessings He gives me. Sometimes I just have to sit in awe of Him and all the things He has done in my life recently. I am just incredibly blessed to be married to the man of my dreams and live and serve Him in Auburn.
Tim came back from Together for the Gospel Friday morning around 5 AM. It has been so great to have him back home and with me! Last week was really lonely and dull around here. He helps keep me laughing and keep things lively at our house. He truly is my best friend! I do not know what I did to earn the kind of favor in God to receive Tim Mathis as my husband..I just know he is the second biggest blessing in my life!
I know he learned so much at the conference because he has been sharing all the details with me about the sermons he heard and the fellowship he had with the other interns and students. God has definitely been pouring His teaching into him this semester. I can tell how much his relationship with the Lord has grown since he started the program at Lakeview, especially this semester. Tim will be posting a video blog later tonight or tomorrow about Together for the Gospel.
On Monday night, I had one of my best friends, Emily, over for dinner and we got to talk and hang out for a while. Also on Monday night, I got a phone call from my brother, Ethan, telling me that he was going to the ER because my Paw-Paw was dizzy and sweating and could not stand up. It turned out to be that he had an allergic reaction to some nasal spray. Let’s just say that he will not be using that nasal spray again. Please continue to pray for him as every day is still a struggle with my grandmother’s death for him.
We still meet weekly with people we disciple on Thursday nights. Tim and the guy he disciples have been going through the book Forgotten God by Francis Chan. I have been going through the book Lies Young Women Believe and the Truth That Sets Them Free with the girl I am discipling. We are so blessed that God has given us this time and opportunity to do this with fellow believers.
Oh, we also got to go to A-Day on Saturday afternoon in Jordan-Hare Stadium. We were able to soak up some sun and get some walking in around campus and in downtown Auburn. War Eagle!
We hope you all have a great week and if there is any way we can pray for you, please let us know.
