Yes, we are still here.

I am beginning to see a pattern here. I will blog faithfully for a while, then I will seem to drop off the face of the blogger world. As least this time I have a pretty good excuse. We have gone through some pretty big changes over the last two months.

First of all, we have moved. Long story short, the Lord in his wisdom has provided us with more affordable accomodations. When we prayed for God to intervene, we never expected that He would direct us to move. We are very blessed to have only moved a VERY short distance and we are now even closer to family. Isn't God good?

Secondly, new jobs are all around. Dewayne began a new job where he is going to have opportunities he has never had. I have also begun working from home. This was not a decision we took lightly. My call to homeschool is first and foremost for our family. But we have prayed for quite some time that if I was supposed to supplement our income in any way, that the answer would be very clear. What a great blessing this new job has been in this short time! We are wrapping up school for the year, so I should be able to focus on working a little more this summer hopefully to be in a routine that will seamlessly transition into a new school year. The extra income will really help as we work to get some old debt (and newer debt!) paid down. I pray that it will last as long as God sees fit.

Lastly, we are going in fifty gillion directions at once and it is hard to find time to spend time together as a family. The new jobs, new service opportunities, new responsibilties...the list goes on. But I am so incredibly blessed with my wonderful husband and children. Although having a family leaves me exhausted most days, it also leaves me joyful. Most of all, I am grateful for my heavenly Father who gives generously to meet His children's needs.

May God bless and keep you today.

It is good to hear from you again. I had no idea you had so much going on and such big changes. I am praying for a smooth transition for you and your family. God provides exactly what we need when we really need it doesn't he?! The hard part is listening and noticing what that really is. :)
