christmas letter 2009

Dear Family and Friends[J1] ,
We are entering one of the greatest seasons of the year. It is a joy to celebrate together the birth of our savior, Jesus Christ.
January- We really didn’t have much happening I went to the Ladies luncheon at Church. It was really nice they had a good speaker. We had the BIMI missions conference: it is always nice to have the missionaries come and show us their fields.
February- was Our first Valentines Day as a married couple. I cooked a nice dinner for Jon and we had a good evening together. Our truck broke down in February and it would Cost more money then we had to fix it. So we prayed, and God answered our prayers and now we have a Plymouth Colt. It is a really nice car a 1992. We also sold our truck for 800 dollars to the guy who sold us the Colt. Isn’t God good?!?
March- our Sunday School class had It’s annual progressive dinner. It was nice of course, we both ate too much; there goes the pounds we had lost. Also in march my aunt and cousin and her 2 boys came out to see us on their way to my aunt’s house in Placentia. It was a great visit We really enjoyed seeing them just wished it was a longer visit.
April our Easter was a quiet one this year We enjoyed going to our church ‘s cantata a great service. We also went with Jon’s coworker and his wife to the San Diego Zoo It was a lot of fun. The Lord was directing us to buying our first house. We thought at first we were going to get Jon’s mom’s house, but that did not work out. So we began seriously looking around.
May-Our Church had its annual mother/daughter luncheon The theme was Bear all things’ It was really a nice time together for all the mothers and daughters. We put an offer in on a house we liked very much and hoped we could get it That house fell through, so we put in another offer on a house. Jon was working 10 hr days and weekends too so I felt like I hardly saw him. Our dear friends Brad and Lola from Oregon came to visit us at our bunkhouse.
June- - We celebrated our 1st year anniversary Sure didn’t seem like it had been a year. I helped in VBS at church. The Lord sure blessed us this year with a lot of helpers. We finally had a house in escrow It seems like you go up and down with trying to buy a house!
July- We moved into our new house! It is 1104 sq feet so we have a lot more room. It is real nice. We have some work that needs to be done with the house but that take time. Thank you for all who have been praying for us through this. God sure is good to us. Well, the minute we moved into our house it seemed like Jon started fixing things he put new door knobs on the screen doors, cause I could not get in with the old ones. Then he put lights in our bedroom which were badly needed Jon got laid off due to the nation’s economy. We enjoyed spending first year of married life in the Shorts’ bunkhouse where we were quite happy.
August Well, God provided work for Jon: some of the church people needed help, or jobs done; and God provided work. We had to paint the outside of the house. It looks much better now. We watched our friends’ dogs while they went on vacation.
Sept- Well we started serving another year with our church king’s kids Jon is the club secretary, and I help in the 1st through 3rd grade class, On Sept 12 we drove to Placentia go see my cousin. She just had a baby in July and we were so excited for her. It was a really nice time with them. On Sept 22 Jon was asked to come back to work: praise the Lord’ We have been wanting a dog, so on Sept 29 we went and got Rosco He is a miniature pincher, a very well behaved 10 week old puppy. Roy short guided Jon on some landscaping for our new home.
Oct—Our puppy was so sick he got parvo, so we took him to the vet and they gave him an IV and some shot and gave us some medications and I think the Lord spared his life So thank you all who Prayed Jon and I, and my dear friend Abby went to the Pumpkin Patch and Oak Glen for outing We had a fun time. Our church celebrated It’s 46th anniversary as a church It was a great day. Jon built a fence for our puppy it is so nice.
Nov- I turned 34 on November 10: I feel old. My husband spoiled me! We celebrated Thanksgiving with my Friend and her family we went to Idyllwild for dinner: it sure was beautiful up there. This year we have a lot to be thankful for a new house,and a healthy puppy. Rosco ran away on thanksgiving please pray he will return to us soon.
Had various friends over for dinner tried to do this once a month
Jon serves as the bookstore manger at our church, and I serve in the nursery once or twice a month.
May the new year 2010 be a great year for all of you God is good!
Jon and Jenny Sherwood

The House saga Continues......

Well we are like 3 days til escrow should close and we get an e-mail saying some is on the owner titel so we have to wait to sign all the paper work in 7-10 days cause they have to get a paper on the titel.Think this is bad i have most of the the house packed ready to go,So now we have to in boxes for at least 10 days .I want to tell everyone hey what do you think your doing do you know what we are having to go through.. but then I think well there must be a reason for all this I feel iam at the end of my ropes with all this we just want to move in!

Funny how things work out and it never happens when you want it to happen but we are just waiting it out longer we will soon be in a house that belongs to us..

The count down 8 days til escrow closes...

Well we have like 8 days til escrow closes and so Iam packing like a mad woman thinking at any moment something could happen where it falls through.So then we would unpack allthe boxes oh what fun! we pray that the seller will do all the repairs he needs to so escrow closes on time.Being in escrow is very stressful but once we are in it for good I think we both will relax....We took these pictures when we went to look at the house again.
We like it very much of course it needs work on it but Jon is very good at that.We praise the Lord for his goodness to us ,And That Jon still has a Job they laid everyone off but Jon and the foremen what tells us that his bosses like what Jon is doing Praise the Lord..

things have been kinda tough this past week our only truck has a valve that needs fixing and those things cost 1000 dollars or more and we had 2 other blows which I rather not say.But it seems like the Lord wants to teach us a lesson in this trial.We are very happily married.This picture was the last night of kings kids last year. we will have been married 8 months I could not image my life without him we will have ups and downs which every relationship does.Please pray for our trial we seem to be facing that we will be stronger because of it.
