A Little Rambling

I appreciate daylight savings time, at least when we “fall back”.  It’s nice to be up and around before anything else is going on. 

We’ve had lots of company the last couple of weekends.  I enjoy the boys coming over so much.  Burke helped Tom paint the living room.  It is a dark brown, very cozy.  I’m ready to decorate for Christmas, but I won’t until the weekend after Thanksgiving. 

I was looking at my sidebar at how many times I have posted this year, almost half of what I did last year.  What’s up with that?  I don’t have an explanation.

Our lives are settling in to a routine (as much as possible with young adults randomly popping in)  I miss Peyton so much, but I am ok.  In the first years you are in such a turmoil, then as things settle down and you are feeling more “normal”, the realization that Peyton is really, really, not coming back starts sinking in.  I don’t know how much longer we will have to wait before we see him again.  I am so ready.

The Lord has been showing me things about His grace.  It is a hard concept for me to grasp, but I am getting there.  He loves us so much and never gives up on us :)  In the coming months, I will be focusing on my PURPOSE and VISION.  In 2009, it was said that we (the Church) would not recognize ourselves by the end of the year.  That was so true for me.  I have changed and grown so much and I don’t plan on stopping.  I will listen to God’s voice and follow His direction.   I will speak to any hindrance and lay aside any weight that tries to stop God’s plan for my life.

I am looking forward to the years to come and the plans God has for us, personally and as the Body of Christ.

Thanks for reading :)

I love your posts too! They are very encouraging. As Christians I think we are called to encourage each other. God has given you a gift with words and writing.

Great post! I know my focus this year will be the vision and God's plan for me also. I think sometimes we forgot God has a plan just for us.

Such an encouraging posts....your testimony and willingness to share just a portion of what God is teaching you is such a blessing (and encouragment) to me!

PS - would love to see that new cozy brown color on the walls;0
