New Adventures

A while ago I committed myself to blogging once a week, and now I'm feeling guilty for not doing it! But it's not a good kind of guilt...so I'm releasing myself from that. If God gives me something to write I will most certainly do it. Until then I will be enjoying some new adventures in this season of my life...

Jacob is now in baseball. Just adding practice two nights a week seems to fill up our schedule. I can't imagine what it will be like when all 3 boys are playing sports! I am thankful for now that there is a playground next to the ball field, so Brady and Isaac have a fun place to burn off some of their energy :)

(Isaac will be 5 years old tomorrow!)

I recently began a Women's Bible Study called Anointed, Transformed, and Redeemed: A Study of David. This is the first time I've done a study that includes a workbook with daily homework. I like this added component, but it takes time if I really want to benefit from it.

With the help of a friend I am working on landscaping the front of our house. We have not done a thing with landscaping since we moved in 9 years ago, so it's about time. I've put it off because I know very little about gardening and haven't wanted to take the time to learn. There is no turning back now though...we've already ripped out all our bushes. And as Isaac would say there are large "bones" sticking out of the ground. Time to add some beauty...

And finally I will be preparing to be part of the worship event "Called to Belong" in August. The thought of being up on a stage in any capacity makes me uncomfortable, so this will be a stretch. However, I love music, I love my husband and those involved, and I have every reason in the world to praise my heavenly Father, so why not? I have not been in a choir since junior high! Hoping that my voice will be pleasant to His ears and to those around me LOL

So that's what is happening in my life amidst the daily routines and trying to balance work and rest. My days are full, but not too busy that I don't have room to breathe or be available to others. And that's just how I want them to be.

First, just want you to know I love your boys. They melt my heart every time I see them.

I am so thankful that you are going to be a part of Called to Belong. And I am equally thrilled that you are a part of the Bible study. You are a joy!
