I realize it’s been a while since I’ve been here, but there are so very many ways I am back again. Since I started classes in August I really haven’t had much spare time. No reading for fun, just lots of reading, if the house gets clean or dinner gets made it could be considered a miracle. But my last class until fall ends this Friday. Yes I should be working on a paper that just happens to be due on Friday, but I’m in need of some emotional processing so I’m back to doing that here. Strange how the act of writing something down seems to help but it just does. So here I am processing things.

We are back to other things too, like being unemployed and trying to sell a house. These are things I have not missed. No, really I haven’t. Shocking I know. Honestly I think we have handled things well. Unemployment has been available this time since we weren’t self employed. I have been working at a job I absolutely love. Sadly it doesn’t pay too much, but it’s helped me decide what I want to be when I grow up and I love that. I just got back a few weeks ago from a mission trip to Madagascar. The picture above was take in front of Notre Dame Cathedral on our layover on the way home. I really need to catch you all up!! So many pictures so little time……….
You know me, I need a plan, and I am back to working without one lately. I really do believe that God knows what He is doing. Ultimately I want His plan, not mine, I know He knows all the good stuff and what’s best for us. I really do believe that. Today while we were talking I asked if we as a family could be present and aware now to be actively working for Him. When we are in the middle of all the junk, looking for reasons, understanding, and an indication of “the plan” we forget to be effective believers. Today I am trying to make sure my eyes are off of me and on God so that He can use me.
“A good man produces good out of the good storeroom of his heart. An evil man produces evil out of the evil storeroom, for his mouth speaks from the overflow of the heart.”
