"Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen."
1 Peter 4:10-11 (NIV)

Applying for passport...check! (with much perseverance)

On Friday, Jason and I applied for our passports...granted it took a while to get that all coordinated. It really was only a small inconvenience and I find it hilarious now, but we did get slightly frustrated.

Initially, my thought was "Hey, we can do this on Friday afternoon when I get off work at the Valley View post office. It's a small post office, so there shouldn't be many people and will be quick." The Valley View post office doesn't do passports, and the Gainesville post office does them by appointment only and not on Friday afternoons. So...our option was then to get photos done at CVS and then go to the Clerk's office at the courthouse. Wouldn't you know, the passport photo machine at CVS wasn't working and they send us to Walmart...on a Friday afternoon. (Busy. Annoying.) 

With photos in hand after our Walmart excursion, we did get to the Clerk's office and thankfully had all the correct paperwork. So our passports should be here fairly soon. 

Next will be plane tickets...but we'll all purchase tickets at the same time so hopefully it will run more smoothly than the passport challenge.
