A blog post of future blog posts

Good evening, fine blog readers...if you're still there!

All is well here, just busy beyond words! all good things, all good things, but busy nonetheless.

I have a list of a few blog posts I'm mulling over, writing and hoping to post within the next few months...

~A charge to Young Ladies

~A charge to fellow mothers

~Raising Godly children and not beastly children

~Being the Church, what that looks like, why it's so important etc (I'm so trying to figure this out)

~Will and Melanie's cover songs...I will have to find out how to post videos....

~What E, Levi and Moo are up to....Aunt Sherry's release from the hospital and how well she's doing!

~and many more intriguing titles for your viewing/reading pleasure. or not....

In other news, Aunt Sherry brought it to my attention that this day, four years ago, Uncle John moved here from Kansas. It was also the day that we had our ultrasound and found out that we would be welcoming our fourth son. Oh, Jack...I can't help but wonder if your cord was knotted on that day...

he never gave any indication of struggle...

Enjoy these pix below...they are in no special order...but hey, they are bringing me some January joy and that rocks....

We may be separated for now...
Is this true? I think it is.



Enjoy these blasts from the summery past....

I went through nine of the hardest months of my life, heart burn, tears, fear,  more fear and all I have to show for it is this 7 pound, 7 ounce teddy bear, which I am ever so thankful for, honestly. (Thank you, Molly Bears. Your donation is incredible and I love it) I'm also so thankful for the endless trials that the Lord has taken me/us through because of the life of our precious boy. Our precious boy who never even opened his eyes out here, took a breath or clasped my finger in his tiny hand.
sometimes, like right now, I feel robbed. but then I remember that I am the exact opposite of robbed.
So, honestly, I have a  lot on my mind...it's all good...I'm so thankful for the situations that the Lord brings me through and to. I wonder what He has in store for me. For us.

I feel like I'm on the cusp of something big...or different.

In light of the stuff we've been through with David's work situations (blah!!), the stuff we've been through with people around us etc....I feel like He's been preparing us for something that I can't even comprehend.

It makes me very "thinky" and almost pensive. I'm not mad, or judgey, just thoughtful....always wondering what I should say, how I can help, how to make things better around us or encourage people who are in different places than me.

My first blog post after this will be addressing young girls...Having a teenaged daughter, I cannot help but face this topic. Please know that, in addressing it, it doesn't mean that I've got it "figured out"...I'm just trying to encourage the young girls that come in and out of our lives...the way I'd like for my girls...if I wasn't here to hash it out with them.

On that note, I'm outta here...hope that this finds you doing well, enjoying this winter time and thanking the Lord for the life you get to live!
