I realize I've neglected this little place for quite some time. There are a lot of reasons why. I had a baby in July--my fifth--and that has taken up a lot of my time!! Having a fifth child has been a big adjustment for me. But I think I've found my new groove, and hopefully it will just get more and more comfortable. I will say I am loving being a mother to five children. So many little people to occupy my days with, to laugh with, to cry with, to love on. I am so blessed!
Another reason why I think I haven't been here more often is because I am processing so much LIFE right now. This past year has been a time of learning so much about myself and about the Lord. It has truly been a paradigm shifting experience where I have examined so many things about myself and my life to make sure I am truly living it for Him. It has been painful, joyful, and enlightening all at once. There's still so much I would like to say, but find I don't have the words for it just yet. I thought about quitting blogging, but realized I've already poured so much of myself into this place that I don't want to give it up. So I'll continue. But I'm not sure how yet.
And lastly, I think I've neglected this blog because I have just been living and enjoying LIFE. When you experience deep darkness in your life, the flip side is that you become more grateful, more faithful, more joyful, more GRACE-ful. Romans 8:28 "For God works ALL THINGS to the good of those that love Him."
Not sure how much I will be posting this month. But I plan to be back on a semi-regular basis starting in January. But then of course I could post every day next week! Funny how that happens. Just wanted to pop in and say hello to all my readers and friends who have been a part of this blog. You all have enriched my life so much with the connections. Thank you and I will be back soon!!
