It's been a long time hasn't it? I've missed blogging, but for some reason it's been really emotional to begin again. But now, I feel God pulling me to start again, so here we go!
Life is about the journey and our sole purpose in being born and going about of our lives is to bring Glory to our Savior. In my life, sometimes I've done that, but most of the time I've fallen far short of the mark. I can't count the times I'm sure I've disappointed my Jesus, but He's never left me, and never forsaken me and I have no words to describe His Faithfulness. We are so undeserving, and He is so generous!
Things are going swimmingly for us! The Youngun is now a Sophmore in High School. Being back in public school has not all been sunshine and roses, but with God's guidance we've managed to raise a daughter with values and morals, who knows the importance of communication. We are able as a family to work through the situations that arise and I'm thankful for that. She had her first boyfriend that lasted about 5 months, and even though they hugged, they didn't kiss because she wasn't ready for that. She ended the relationship for some very mature reasons that I'm so thankful for as a Momma! The Boy had some "issues" that scared me as a parent, and we talked about them freely and in a non-judgmental way, and she came to the conclusion to end it on her own. I was actually quite surprised (but very happy) when she told me.
God has allowed us to buy our own place and I'll blog about that in future, he's given us a job where we are working together, truly working together, and other than our house (which will be paid for in 6 years God willing) and our car, we are debt free!
I've missed blogging, and have thought to take it up again several times. For some reason it makes me feel very vulnerable! However, that being said, reading back over my blog makes me smile, brings things to mind that I've forgotten, and gives me a pretty accurate online diary of what we've been up to. Writing it down in a notebook just doesn't feel, or work the same!
So.....I'm possibly beginning the blog foray again. I've got lots to share and lots to say and lots of wonderful ways in which our Heavenly Father has blessed us that I want to tell the world about!
