Catching My Breath!
It has been quite a while since I have blogged...quite honestly, with all that has been going on at our house, I have seriously thought about shutting down my blog. It is just one of those seasons in life that require so very much of my time and attention. But, I do enjoy the fact that I have connected through this blog with some wonderful ladies...and it is a great way to keep family and friends abreast of all that is going on here. So, at the moment, I will remain, though it might be a little more sporadic than in times past. So much has happened since I last blogged. I won't bore you with all the details, but at the moment I have two of my children under the care of a chiroprator. My oldest, Joy, is having to go through some neck traction and some other things while Josiah, my second oldest, is having his atlas adjusted. The drive to the doctor takes an hour one way...so getting a second vehicle became an imperative at that point. We searched and searched and finally decided on another minivan so we would have a newer vehicle that would carry us all. It has been so nice to have the option to run out and get things we need at a moments notice so I am very grateful to the Lord for His provision. We ended up getting a used vehicle, but still the shock of the price was a little hard to swallow. Right now, the children are seeing the doctor twice a week, so that takes a good portion out of our week. My husband has started a new job that keeps him extremely busy and we are trying to adjust to his added demands and new hours. He has been preaching on post most Sundays lately so that has been a blessing for him and for us. I have a long list of projects that I am going to be completing before our next school year starts...which right now is going to be around the third week of July. God has been showing me and teaching me much during these weeks of activity. I look forward to sharing my heart with you on so many things. It has been a hard time for us...physically, emotionally...and now even financially. But, to see the hand of God's generousity toward His children has been so beautiful. It is further confirmation that He provides for our needs...always. I feel so extremely blessed to be loved so much by Him. How undeserving I truly am...and yet, He remains ever faithful and true. I hope to catch up with all my blogging friends very soon. I have missed you all. Keep us in your prayers during this season in our lives. God bless!
