Current Read: The Shack.....

WOW! Is what I can say for now. I am on chapter 5 and have found some things that have leapt out at me. I have an extremely hard time reading anything that has crimes against children. It truly hits home with the young girl found in the Georgia landfill this week. I pray for her family as I would be beside myself.

The one thing that has struck me so far is the concept that God never leaves us. The quote was "When all you can see is your pain, perhaps then you lose sight of me". Hmmmmm......

Brings me back to the Footprints poem. Praise Jesus that he is there to carry me during those most trying times.

Be blessed.....

All About Me Challnge Weeks 2 & 3

I chose to participate in my first scrapbook challenge. It is title "All About Me". I could see that I could do this as a gift for each of my children also. Pictures are always an issue but I have made do. I will be getting some pictures from my mother's house for some of the pages. Week 2 was Humble Beginnings and Week 3 is What's in a Name? I hope you enjoy them.

I have been away TOO long...

I cannot believe my last post was July 2008! Terrible me. A lot has transpired in my life since then. I am married now for two years to my wonderful husband, Alex. We have our son in college and facing the challenges of raising a teen and a pre-teen. Why can't children come with instructions . I have read (listened) to many books and taken up a new hobby- Stamping and Scrapbooking. I will blog more on those later.

I have been working at a mortgage company for a year already and it can be stressful. I like the work and the people. It is not teaching but c'est la vie. I will be sure to keep up with this more frequently. For now, be blessed.
