with both sides of my family

one of our summer trips to Walpole Island.

Family memories....ahhhhh.

Back in the days when life was easier, slower, seemingly more trustworthy....

I really don't even know where to begin in blogging any updates so I'll just do the about updates....

David, Mel, Levi, Molly and I headed to Gulf Shores two weeks ago yesterday. We had a restful time and it was seriously so so sooooo good to get the heck outta Dodge. for real....though some serious work issues followed us down there, David did a great job trying to stay engaged in the vacation time. As a business owner, it is truly difficult to "get away" and not have to touch work stuff. It just doesn't happen. YFF is facing some pretty challenging days but we are leaving these iffy things in God's hands. We have good people in our workforce that have gone to bat for us. Also, some people on our work force who have not gone to bat for us...but that's a blog post for another day or another lifetime. blah. Please continue to lift David up before the Lord, as he faces some pretty cruddy situations. (I must also add, that we are facing some pretty great work situations also!! we will take the good with the bad any day. We will praise the Lord through all of it.)

Our time down south was really nice and went by way too fast. I could live on the beach....that is all.

The Tuesday we left town, we found out that our Aunt Sherry had a medical emergency...from what Uncle John related to us, she was brought back to life. She is on the up and up, will require a month or so of rehabilitation. Thank you for continuing to pray for her. We love her so.

I honestly just don't even know what else to blog about...all is well here. December, in true December form, has swooped in and overwhelmed me. I am always glad to "survive" Christmas, swore I wouldn't struggle with it this year and here I am...struggling....

choosing JOY but struggling. Overwhelmed by how hurtful and damaging some people can truly be...people you think you know. Heck, You'd think I'd be used to it by now...people will let you down...there is only ONE that sticks closer than a brother.

His name is Jesus Christ.

He is the One we celebrate. Not just this month but every day of every month. He is Immanuel....GOD WITH US.

I am clinging to the promise today that HE IS WITH ME.

He is more than just a fun thought for Sunday. He is worthy of our praise, today and every day.

Love you...hope that this finds you well.
