Greetings, Dear Sisters!
Can you tell? I've been missing in action again. I just realized that it's been over a month and half since I've posted anything here. Life has been a whirlwind, indeed!
As you know, my Aunt Linda passed away on the 30th of April. On the 21st of May our youngest son and his wife were married. Then, my husband's mother passed away on the 3rd of June. Since then we've gone through a time of pulling in, regrouping, and refilling ourselves with the Word of God.
For far too long we had been off track. Beginning about eight...nine years ago...a series of events took place that shook our faith and changed our family forever. It's been a long, hard road, but praise God! He is opening His Word up to us afresh, and putting us in position to receive all that He's got for us! Praise the name of the Lord!
My husband and I feel like we're going through another one of those crash courses like we did shortly before our move to Liberal. We have been inundated with good materials, and with them has come a deeper level of understanding than ever before. In many ways we feel like we're just starting out again. God's Word is so amazing! It's more than a bunch of ink slapped on paper. It's a living, breathing Word that is just as relevant for us today as it was for those who were living it out before it was written. The authorized Word of God comes with power and authority over every situation and over every enemy! And, as layer after layer is peeled away, it's depth is amazing!
Well, I think I've rambled on long enough. I just thought I'd pop in and let you all know that I AM still here. I am seeking the Lord for wisdom and direction in many areas, and this blog is one of them. It is my heart's desire to get back to writing (cards, letters, this blog, regular issues of HEARTH AND HOME, etc.) very soon. If you would, please, pray for me in this area. My writing has always been a part of who I am...again...until all this shake up the past eight or nine years...and nothing...I mean NOTHING has been the same since. But it's a new day and I'm still me and that's my heart's desire. Pray for me that I will fully overcome in this area and that the Lord will give me new things to share in the days ahead!
Love and Blessings To All,
