Filled with Joy!

This month has been filled with joy. I graduated from Universidad Panamericana with my ESL degree. I can now teach English as a second language in public and private schools. It feels great to be done and I am thankful for my family and friends who have encouraged me through the whole process. I will continue to teach in our school. We have been praying for a teacher to help out with some classes and we now have one, glory to God! As the school continues to grow she will be a big asset starting next month.

         Cornelio and I are thrilled to share that I am pregnant. We wanted to wait till after I graduated college to start a family and God worked out the timing perfectly! This baby will be such a blessing and we are so ecstatic to be parents!

As a graduation present, Cori invited me to go with her to Guatemala over Holy Week. It was fabulous to visit a different country and experience that culture.  It really did make me appreciate Costa Rica more than I had already. It is easy to take for granted simple things like drinking water from the tap. It was nice to have that time in Guatemala but I was happy to go back home.

Over this past month Cornelio and I have been reminded to appreciate the simple things of life. As we continue to be grateful and notice the daily things Jesus does for us, we find a deeper level of happiness and joy.

For you make me glad by your deeds, Lord; I sing for joy at what you hand have done. How great are your works, Lord, how profound your thoughts! Psalm 92:4-5
