Wow, it's been a while hasn't it? It feels like I have a lot to say but I'm not quite sure where to start.
Life has taken some turns. None bad, but not easy either. I've been angry, sad, happy, elated, scared - gosh it seems I'm all of those things all the time. I've had some time to really sink down deep into my heart and see some ugly things about me that I know need to change. I've also seen glimmers of home deep inside me that I cling to knowing that I'm going to make the right choices.
Rob's doing a student ministry internship right now. It's unpaid but he's learning the ins and outs of student ministry and that's where he needs to be. We are painfully broke. Today was a turning point where we both realized it's time to focus on humility and with that I think we're going to make some big changes in our lives. It's time to simplify. I don't think we can truly grasp what God's trying to do with our lives if we continue to live the lifestyle we currently are living.
Work is going very well for me. I really do enjoy what I do and I'm growing each day.
The kids are amazing. Lil Brother is 7 months old, has four teeth and quite a funny personality. He's a cuddly little guy and smiles ALL THE TIME. Bug is 20 months old now and has blossomed. She is such a trip. She's starting to talk more and more and communicate well with us which causes less and less tantrums. Doodle is 4 and boy is she a pistol. She keeps us on our toes and keeps us humble for sure.
My relationship with my husband is amazing. We have grown more this year than we ever have and I am so thankful to have a man like him in my life.
Dear Heavenly Father, please guide me each day as I try to be more and more like Jesus. I know that it's with Your forgiveness and grace that each day I fail, I seek You and there You are for me. Every day I stumble. Every day I need You. Every day I need to feel Your love. I am nothing without You. I cannot be a good wife, a good mother or a good friend without You. Help me remember to recognize that. Help me control my tongue and my temper. Help me love my husband, my children and friends the way Your Son loves us.
