OH SO TRUE…
I can remember the day I moved out of my first home and into an apartment. I was crushed. WIthin weeks of being in my new place things changed. My new place was bright and most importantly was leaving behind so many bad memories.
Leaving the house I thought was so wonderful opened so many doors.
My apartment turned into a place where friends would gather, laughter and joy abounded. When it was time to move on I felt the same way about leaving - but I knew in my heart great things were ahead.
2 Thessalonians 1:11 Because we know that this extraordinary day is just ahead… (The message translation.)
A brief montage of the evening Michael and I renewed our vows and celebrated Fathers day with our family.
Its only been five years but it feels like it’s been a lifetime . we have been by each others side conquering death and celebrating births.
Not everyday is perfect. That is just not how life is. However as we work together to a more perfect love ( not just for each other ) things get better. Those mountains that once seemed insurmountable seem like bumps in the road, and along the way we are creating treasured memories.
Like I always say Im not all I want to be but Im sure not what I used to be. My heart seeps with thankfulness for all that I have been blessed with.
Finding the right place to blog has been a real challenge. Maybe because every time I pick up my computer within ten minutes someone needs a diaper changed, is hungry, has thrown up, is bleeding, or my husband can’t find something (you get the idea).
To me the setup was so time consuming and confusing that posting a simple picture and thoughts to go with became hours of work. Yet at night, or randomly through the day I would have the urge on the inside that there was something I needed to share. So forged was the battle to find the right space - and here we are. I believe this will work for you and for me.
After two failed set ups I realized it wasn’t me. It was what ever the enemy could do to prevent The Word, and keeping each other encouraged and in-touch. Shame on me for ever giving up. However I know God sees my heart as he sees yours, knows our efforts and if we all just continue to push through, we may fall - but we will just get back up an dust ourselves off again. Why wouldn’t we? That is what and overcomer does and we know ” We are MORE than overcomes, bought by the precious blood of the Lamb” …
I am looking forward to this forum - me being able to share all that God is doing and the fun that summer brings, as well as you sharing back with all the goodness in your life.
Ahhh - someone needs TP, I must go.
Let not your heart be troubled, I pray goodness and mercy follow you everywhere you go.
