A Month of Silence
Where have you been?
I never meant to stay silent for a so long but it happened and hopefully it will not be the norm. So here we go again. 🙂 (I still don’t know how to do the little smiley face men, I know they have a name too but I don’t know how to spell it)
The Lord has brought me through the death of a precious 10 year girl, a stomach bug, a trip to Dallas, a trip to Atlanta, 2 dance shows, co-producing a school talent show, renovating a child’s bedroom, countless rides to sports practices, commercial shoots, many attitude adjustments, and then just being a mom to five. I really have been running on low fuel!
Thankfully we serve a God that is the God of the impossible and with a lot of prayer I have made it. Although I know I need to hold on because my time of rest may only last a day.
Until now, I had not written out all of the things that I had walked through this past month down. This verse just came to my mind.
“Be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power.” (His power, not ours)
I am reminded that as parents we cannot do anything “well” without His help.
His power and strength were the only way I could have survived a month like this.
It’s great to be back!
Happy 1st year of blogging on here.
Jennifer, I’m so happy you posted; I was worried…and I can read that I had good cause to be. I pray that you are finding balance and peace for those are some of the greatest gifts of all.
((hugs to you))
P.S. The smiley face, among other face symbols, is called an emoticon.
Darlene, I am so happy to hear from you. Your post the other week about Blissdom brought tears to my eyes. Keep looking up. Praying for peace and rest for you today. Your friend,Jennifer
