Over Due Rambling

I can't believe how long it's been since I posted.  I keep sitting down to write but something comes up and I close my laptop and I don't get back to it.

On one hand it's good and on another it's not so good.  I like to fill up this little white text box.  Fill it up with my thoughts, rambles, revelations and life events - big or little, good or bad.  But I just haven't been doing it and it's eating at me a little.

I'd like to say big things or busy things are keeping me from blogging - but it's not, it's just...life!  You know, life - that thing that meanders day by day - doing it's thing and taking you along with it?

So yes, the days have not been without their excitements, but again nothing big and spectacular - which really after the last two months I'm kinda okay with....  But there have been good things and interesting things.  Latest is that we found a place - yes, another one - but this time my hubby loved it soooo much that we came home and put an offer on it that night!  'Cause if any of you know me by now, you know it's no big deal if I love a place - but when my hubby loves, and I mean loves it, then you know it's something to blog about! ;) lol!

Anyways we got all the conditions worked out, except and that's the big one, except the sale of our current home!  So we sit and wait - hopeful at every phone call, praying it's our agent with an offer or another potential showing.  It's kinda driving us crazy - to be so close to what we want for the future of our family and yet so not attainable.....

It's a sweet farm house, about 30 minutes from town on a small bit of land and OH get this, it isn't even a fixer upper! I know! Crazy eh?!?!  We could actually move in, I mean move right on it!  We have NEVER moved right into a place - we have always had to under-go and live through major renos first.  I can't even imagine being able to move into a place and actually be able to unpack all the boxes?!?! lol!

Anyways, just pray with us that this is all in the Lord's plan for us and if not that He will change things and if it is for us that He will sell our house soon!  We are doing our best to pack away as much money in the mean time for covering closing costs, moving expenses and other up coming financial things so I feel that we are using the time here well....I just can't help but desire to be out in the wide open spaces.... *sigh*


In the mean time, true Spring weather is finally here, cooler temperatures and rainy days.  So we pass the time with fun indoor activities.












 It was very touching when my eldest says to me - "We are artists like you mommy!"  They had a blast and created some real nice pieces of art!  Olivia was even naming her work - I think she titled one "Jam, Honey and Peanut butter".

And I have even managed to get in a few creative projects myself - I will share soon - and even a engagement photo shoot for my bother-in-law and his fianc√©.....who happens to be our respite care provider....cute story, I'll save that for another day too though. 

We have also been up to our usual pass time, of driving through the country side....which may or may not include the stalking of the house we have an offer on..... 





We figure once we move out of town we might actually save money on gas as we will no longer feel the need to spend hours touring the country side....






But finding little ol' churchs like this is always fun!


So that's a big ramble of what we have been up to.  Not a whole lot - but the days keep on keeping.  It will be two months tomorrow since the passing of my dad..... I'd like to say it's getting easier, better, less affecting on me....but it's not really - it just....is.  My step mom is keeping busy....and I sympathize with that - but it still comes to you at the craziest moments - an emptiness.....a longing....a sad, sad sorrow. 

I looked back over some posts recently and re-read my post from this past Christmas and I quote;

"I look forward to the year ahead, to all the Lord will have for us - for the blessings and even the challenges...."

I still stand by that statement...it's just a little different when you are facing the challenges and have faced them and I read that and think about all that was around me at the time I wrote it....hind sight is a wondrous thing, isn't it?

Truly I did look forward to the blessings and even the challenges of this year - never imagining all that would be, already, in the first four months.  But God has been good, He has lead me along every path and guided me along each day, through the great blessings and the shocking challenges.

So even with final trimester, coupled with low hemoglobin, tiredness setting in each day I turn my heart and trust to our great Creator.  It isn't always easy, especially when I am tired but it is what is best.  The love of our Lord is never failing, He knows what is best and He has never left me.  I lean on those truths and even with hind sight in hand I say again, I look forward to all the the Lord has for us - for the blessings and even the challenges.






And the Lord will guide you continually
and satisfy your desire in scorched places
and make your bones strong;
and you shall be like a watered garden,
like a spring of water,
whose waters do not fail.
Isaiah 58:11

  2. Loved, loved, loved your last paragraph on this post, girl. Amen and amen, that scripture is so perfect.
    Your photos are GORGEOUS. I just want to go sit in that old church and feel the presence of the Lord fall all over me. Will pray it all works out for the house situation(s)!

  3. Been where you are, house wise so many times, and kind of there again. Praying for you, (as always). Can testify to that verse. God always comes through. Have the girls do some art work for Granny's fridge...something springy! <3
