Been meaning to post

I love blogging.  I feel like I can get stuff out.  I have never been a journaler (is that a word?).  I have tried but have failed at every attempt.  I wanted to journal my journey through the revival at church and I did for a while but then that too fell by the way side.   I was a consistent blogger for about 2 years, and that was 3 years ago.  So when I started again I had high hopes that I would keep it up.  Well you can all see that I have not been so diligent!  Here are few things that have happened since my last post.

1.  We are starting a Bible study/prayer group again in Joshua House.  This something that I always enjoyed with the ladies in my group.  I craved it and felt as though I was missing out on an important part of my week when I would have to miss it.  We stopped for many reasons. none that are important enough to tell.  I have felt a true loss since then.  Sure all the girls are still my friends but I have not had the same connection with them like I had before.  I felt the Lord tell me that we should be praying together.  It literally just came to me one day.  And when it came to me it was like that old proverbial light bulb going off.  So we are starting the new study tomorrow!  I am facilitating which can be nerve racking but really all it does is keep my accountable each week.

2. I got to meet with a new friend last week.  We have become blog/facebook friends and now we are real life I see your face friends.  Her girls are the same age as mine and I am hoping that relationship will grow.  It is so nice to find friends that are in the same season of life that you are in.  God has great timing when it comes to that I think.  I am so glad that I am a part of a church body were I can find these relationships.

3.  I have found that I have started some new relationships over the past several months and it has been really nice.  At the same time some old relationships have changed, some for the good and some for the bad.  This has been a trying few weeks for me and I have learned a lot about myself and others.  I have learned about how God would want me to act (and believe me, I have not always acted the best).  I have not enjoyed all that I have had to go through but I have come out unscathed.  And my faith is stronger.  I am seeing God work on me and that makes me grateful for the trials. 

4.  On a family note.  Troy is finally having his surgery on Thursday.  I have mixed emotions about that.  I am so very happy that his foot will be healed. It is also not going to cost near the amount we had expected.  But he is going to be out of work for 2-4 weeks and that my friends makes me nervous.  We will just have to wait and see.  I will keep you all posted.

5.  Jackson is doing great with school.  We finally started the first grade math book!  Yay!  And we are about to be on step 22 for SSRW.  His reading has really improved over the last few weeks. 

God is good all the time!
