Something to read...

So, I cheated on my bloggy break just a little this week! :o) My hubby has been wanting me to check out wordpress. So, I set up a wordpress account back in August and forgot all about it. Well, last week he asked me about it again. So, I went over there and messed with it a little bit more. My kids were sick ALL this week and I felt like total crap so whenever I felt the stress getting to me sometimes I would head on over to wordpress and look at the peaceful serene picture I have up. It is the same picture that is on my journal that I write in that my husband bought me for Christmas last year. (He buys me a different one every year) The picture made me feel SO calm and peaceful and after I sat and looked at it for a little bit, I would start praying and talking to the Lord. And after a couple of times of this, I felt like I needed to write what was going on in my head just to get it out, so I did.

I started this blog as a journal to write down the things I needed to get out of my system. Not bad things, just try to work out the things the Lord is showing me in my life and maybe help others in the same way. I have gotten away from that and sometimes I don't feel very encouraging at all, it's all about encouraging me. So, I wrote something earlier today that I felt led to write. You can agree or not agree. It's no skin off of my back. I didn't write it for anyone but myself and my God. If it helps you, great! So, read it if you want to. It's here.

I wasn't for sure if I wanted to share that blog with anyone. I kind of wanted to keep it private, but I don't feel that is what the Lord wants of me. So, because I feel led to share it, I am going to.

I have learned so much from my blogging break, I didn't get much done because the kids were sick, but I could focus on my children and my husband completely and that is what I needed to do anyway!

It's good to be back and I probably won't be posting as often as I did. Just one more thing I feel changing about me.

Love and Prayers,
