Story Time

For the last couple of weeks Jason has been telling a continuous bedtime story to Buddy and Emma.  They all have been getting really into it talking about story time at night.  Today while I was at my Mom's working on some quilts the kids started playing there bedtime story.  They included Megan in the game so tonight the house is brimming with excitement because Melanie and Megan get to participate in Daddy's bedtime story. To top it off Jason went on line and found pictures to illustrate his story.

They are all gathered around now sitting on the edge of there seats listening to dad tell his fascinating illustrated story.  Memories are being made that will last longer than this moment.  I am grateful for this moment and for my family!

My Kids

Since I haven't blogged in a while that means I haven't posted any pictures of the kids in awhile either.  So I thought I would post an everyday pic of my kids so you can see how they've grown.  I think you also might be able to see that they have just a tad bit of personality too!

Recognizing His Grace in a BBQ

I took a step back from writing for a long time.  I kept hoping I would be able to write again but each time I have approached it I have sensed, ‘no not time yet’.  Well, I am not hearing that right now but...I am not hearing, ‘go for it’, either.  So, if this is the only blog for a while you’ll know why.  Here goes.

God has been working deeply in me for some time now.  I have had to take a step back to give God time to work.  Over a year ago I started to experience some physical problems that seemed to be very serious.  After many Dr. visits and testing it came to that I have a problem in my heart.  Not my physical one but my spiritual one.  I had some real misconceptions of God and what He expected of me. 

After this long year I have continually sensed Him impressing on my heart that I need to rest in Him and stop striving for His acceptance because I already have it.  I am so grateful to be loved inside and out.  I feel I am freer to live.  I am not as bound up inside myself as I once was.  I am finding that I am doing a lot more living.  In fact today I found myself inviting the entire church to a BBQ at a park in two days.  Wow, now that is living!  I am so grateful that God takes His time and does things well.  Along the way I would have loved to have rushed Him along but now I am beginning to see what kind of workmanship God does.  He is a true craftsman; He knows what He is doing!!!!
