Back porch swing

I love sharing my life with others. In the world of motherhood, it is quite difficult to have a conversation with adults. Most conversations are interrupted at least 5 times. This blog is more than anything, a place for me to go back to and see what has happened in my own life. A place to record little happenings in our family, to place pictures, to put my thoughts into the abyss. I think I began to look at this blog as more than that and so it overwhelmed me, plus as I found out people that had read my-soul-poured-out on here I was afraid of their opinions. So I am starting back with a different goal. I am laying here listening to our third born child babble- its hard to believe we actually have kids, but three WHOA! Today we celebrate EIGHT years of marriage. And I think my verdict is that this year, specifically, has been the one of the most difficult. Our precious ones given us our most challenging year as parents yet. Maybe that's one reason I haven't been blogging....My head has been too cluttered to process and absorb what is going on, much less record it. But I have this renewed refreshed feeling that we are in a new season. I read Deuteronomy 8 today which is always the passage that God seems to give me to introduce to a new season. I was reminded of an incredible sermon by one of our pastors that talks about when God says you shall you shall and when God says HE will...He WILL. So I will once again, record his faithfulness here on this blog. And if you want to come in and sit a while, I am inviting you to my back porch swing in your pjs to cry together, giggle together and to listen to my rambling heart. "17 "If you say in your heart, 'These nations are greater than I. How can I dispossess them?' (i.e. 'this job of motherhood is too difficult for me, this job is greater than my strength') 18 you shall not be afraid of them but you shall remember what the LORD your God did to Pharaoh and to all Egypt, 19 the great trials that your eyes saw, the signs, the wonders, the mighty hand, and the outstretched arm, by which the LORD your God brought you out. So will the LORD your God do to all the peoples of whom you are afraid.... 21 You shall not be in dread of them, for the LORD your God is in your midst, a great and awesome God. 22 The LORD your God will clear away these nations before you little by little." Deuteronomy 7:17-22 ...little by little... The Lord my God WILL...help me Love my husband and raise these kids..
