His Ways Are Not Mine....

So after a long night of struggling with the happenings in this world, and being shaken about a friend suddenly losing her mother yesterday I am humbled by a verse from my bible study.. It isn't like I haven't heard it before, but it is a good reminder...

Isaiah 55:8-9 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are you ways my ways, as the heavens are higher than the earh so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.

I don't have to know the plan, and be able to solve it.. there is a Mighty God who is in charge. Seek the Lord while he may be found; call on him while he is near.. So thankful for His word, to calm my heart!!

Also on tap today... I needed to get a little organizing done!! :) Here is a stack of layouts that needed put in order so I could figure out where to go from here in Abby's baby books!!!

And here are her books!! Birth to age 1, and age 1 through age 5... I feel better!! Yay!!

Too Many Thoughts To Sleep...

Today was such a busy day.... It started with a flat tire! I worked all day at the store and came home to watch baby Lucas Monroe.. He is such a sweet boy!

But as I sit here.. my mind is racing to the horrible things that are going on right this minute in Haiti. There is so much suffering I cannot understand. I believe that God still has a plan.. but Lord Help My Unbelief... I have been a Christian for more than half my life, yet sometimes I feel like I will never mature! Are there people out there that can grasp this, and not be shaken by the tragedy? My friend Sarah's husband is there and so is my cousin's daughter. Please say a prayer for their protection!!

Wow... I have not been here in months. I felt like coming back was facing the failure I made of my project 365. I rocked it for almost 4 months, and gave up. It was so fun, I am not sure why I gave up.

Sadly there have been many many things I have started, then gave up? I am not sure what it is about me that nevers finishes a race. Life gets in the way, I wonder what the percentage was of people who started the 365 and actually finished it?

So on with it.. I am happy to be back.. I am not sure what it is I have to say, nothing profound I am sure, but what is it that keeps people blogging?

Things that have happened since March:

  • Bethany graduated from Indiana Weslyan University with a Bachelors in Nursing...
  • Joey is a Junior now at the same school, and recently accepted a pastor's position at Northwoods community church in Westfield Indiana.
  • Abby is a sophomore at Grove City Highschool now.. and just got her temps!
  • Joe is still the love of my life!
  • I am still faithbooking, but the group is not doing well.. so I am pulling it together and probably going a different direction!
  • My dogs are still adorable!!
  • I am working on the Beth Moore "Breaking Free" bible study, and learning way too much about myself!
