Change, embracing it.

Life in general is interesting, I guess. I know my life is.
It ebbs and flows and
is ever changing yet
does not it does not change at all.

I am introspective a lot lately with the
coming changes in our lives.

external will change
in June / July. It is
nerve - racking and
a bit Scary.
I am trying to take
each day, peacefully
and accepting of the
path, whatever it
might be.

I am as certain as
I am of our life being
ever- changing that
there will be a few
surprises along the
Heck there has
already been one
very impressive one
who is due in 20

I also know though
that future is in
God's hands and
he will protect us
and provide for us
in ways we can't
even imagine.

MY one hope and
fear that I must
confront is...RESIDENCY.

MY hope is that we
stay strong throughout
the tough years it
brings... My fear is
that we won't.

I will have to work
to give that fear to
God and let him be
fully in charge and
let him give me peace.

It seems my life is always busy and a lot is always going on. I begin to see that for me this is the norm. I might sometimes wish for a calm steady never changing life, but I also know that God knows what is best for. Clearly at this time, this is what is best.

I wonder how sometimes how my life got to where it is. Then I stop and think and realize it got here because I let God lead me here. I am where he wants me to be. and... I always want to be where he wants me to be. I believe with all my heart and soul that when you let God lead your life you will be happier. 

Even though often my life is not easy, I am content for the most part. Oh I won't say I don't worry sometimes about things. I am human. But, on the whole I am happy. I have wonderful children an amazing husband that God blessed me with. 

God always provides for us. If we let him. I am blessed that I know him.. and remember Jeremiah 29:11-13.

I admit thought that I often miss my husband. I was never one of those women that needed to be around my man every day and then I met my wonderful hubby. The one man I would love to see everyday and I go weeks without seeing him. Interesting huh. Maybe that keeps the magic in our relationship alive? I don't know. I do know that I am just as in love (maybe more in love) with him now as I was 7+ years ago.

Time passes

My children are growing up so fast. I am often amazed when I see a friends child/children at how much they have grown since the last time I saw them. It makes me turn and look at my children and how big they are getting.

It is always interesting to listen to them talk and play, to realize how much they have learned and to hear how their little brains are at work. I know that my oldest L is so smart and understands many things that I am shocked at such as money being kept in the bank. It is amazing how much they listen and learn. I was shocked recently to learn that my two year old knew what a mountain was. "Look Mommy, a mountain." I was so surprised.

As tough as being a mommy is sometimes I cherish it. The children are growing so fast. In a blink of an eye they will be grown and I will miss these times.

As I once heard someone say. " The days are long but the years are short." I believe that is very true.
