It’s been a little while since I have posted, as always time seems to slip by. I haven’t been taking notes on what I want to write about so this might be a little bit of a ramble! lol 

There have been a lot of changes and challenges the past few weeks in certain areas of my life, while it’s hard to see now, I believe they will all lead to the better. I did not get the other position I had heard about the last time I wrote. The whole process was a bit nerve-wracking, but I really loved what I got out of it. I have some areas I need to focus on in leadership areas, and most of that will be taken care of by more experience and God’s help. Now it’s time to step back and look at things. I am praying for even more direction and clarity of where God wants me. There is just so much I am not sure about, which isn’t a bad thing. I think this emotional roller coaster these past few weeks has shook things up so that I will dig deeper and work harder. I have to allow time for the cycle of how things work in my head to work its way through…it’s hard to explain, but usually something triggers me to be hurt, angry, upset or something similar, I cry it out, my brain sorts through, God gives me the strength to work through it. Yeah, typical woman reaction for ya! 🙂 But I still believe that verse He gave me at the time of the last post : Jeremiah 32:27 “Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh. Is anything too hard for me?” God is still good, and He can do anything.

I will spare my readers from any political rant, opinion, etc. I don’t even watch tv and I am sick of it. So that it on that 🙂

The holidays are fast approaching, but I didn’t need to tell anyone that. I find myself really looking forward to all of it. I don’t have the emotional stress of the “year of firsts” and God has healed my heart so that I am free to enjoy this season of my life. Add to that working for a place that is enabling me to be with my family , and I am so blessed! The kids and I will have to get creative in some areas, and hopefully we will have at least one new tradition. I have no clue what that might be, but I am seriously considering not doing a Christmas tree, and maybe just deck out the living room and maybe the dining room in Christmas lights, tacky tinsel and whatever else I can find. I figure that would be easier than putting up lights outside, and probably easier than me wrestling a dusty Christmas tree. I think the kids would enjoy it a lot more too, especially if we went around to the thrift shops finding some fun décor. All I know is that I want things to be different, and not just because that’s the way everyone does them. I  want to have fun and let my kids enjoy themselves while making some memories. 🙂
