hello again

Time passes so fast. Each day seems to blend into the other. The house is all unpacked- kind of. We still have odds and ends here and there to unpack but for the most part essentials, and rooms are unpacked. Christmas came and went-which by the way was pleasant to be in our own home to celebrate the birth of Christ

Dad and his crew

Mom and all her babes

2011 is here for us all. I am looking forward to seeing what the Lord is doing in 2011.  There are lots of things happening here:

My eldest has started his first full time job. This is a job that we have prayed for. One that took over a year for the Lord to grant. It has been his first few days so it is hard to tell how it will work out but I am grateful to the Lord for answered prayer.

Joey and Maria are starting cyber-schooling. We are heading in a different direction with homeschooling. It is not a direction I thought we would ever go in, but at this point I can say I am tired. I am burnt out and done carrying a load in our lives that was not meant for me to carry alone.

They are both very excited about this new venture. I am of course apprehensive about it because this involves the state. We all know that sometimes getting the state involved can be messy. I am leaning on the GRACE of the Lord knowing that ALL things lie in HIS hands!

Sam is working hard. He got a job with the union two weeks before we moved into this house. The hours are strange 5pm-3am.. it is rough for him. Very cold nights, and he has to sleep all day so seeing us during the day is minimal, because he wakes up to get ready for work. As for me I don't get to see him, because usually I am at work when he is here. Sometimes I feel like we have not seen each other at all which we have not gotten to share hearts with each other either.

Myself.. well I have started working. I took on helping my dad at the school and have been there ever since. In this season in my life this is what I feel like God has for me. I love the children. They are all so sweet. I get to hold and love on babies whenever I want. I look to forward to seeing where the Lord leads.. for where HE leads I will follow.



  1. So glad you are blogging again.
    I have missed your blogs.
    Happy you are in your own home.
    Praying grace and peace to your new season in life.

  2. I am glad that Sam was able to get a job with the union so quickly. I will be praying for you in your job and that y'all will work out a routine and schedule that helps you feel more together. Hooray for unpacking and settling in! :)

    Much love,


I love comments.. I love to hear from you and know you have blessed me with your thoughts
