Life is truly a miracle! This past weekend we were blessed with a new, precious nephew...our first! Our boys couldn't be more thrilled to now have a boy cousin, seeing as they love their girl cousin so much! I'm amazed at how delicate life is and how you can see such extremes at once. For as we were thrilled at the birth of our new nephew, my heart was also burdened at the hardship that my Grandma is facing in her fight with cancer. She has now done 2 rounds of radiation and 1 of chemo and this past radiation treatment has been extremely rough. As I've seen life at such different ends this week I'm reminded of God's faithfulness. Life is a gift from the Lord and completely in His hands. I'm so thankful for modern medication and equipment that is able to help deliver life and help heal life. But again, ultimately we are in His hands and again...there's no place I'd rather be.

My husband thinks I should write a book someday.
I was shocked to realize that it had been almost 2 years since my recent blog posting. At the time I mostly was very busy with smaller children and journeying through some things in my own life, thus the reason I stopped. But there was also part of me that would come to my laptop and would sit in front of this screen and not really know what to write. Spiritual or funny.....long or short.....day's activities or a story...
When my family mentions my writing a book I wonder what it would be about. I don't think it would be fiction. I would probably just enjoy writing about my life and its' journey - the things the Lord taught me and the things I'm still learning. Then I think that's what this blog is all about too! I sometimes find that I don't know what to write until I sit down and start writing. As I'm typing I realize through an incident that occurred or something that happened during the day that the Lord taught me a valuable lesson that I hadn't paid attention to.
Sometimes I think I need a "plan"....a story per say or a organized list in my mind of what I should write about before venturing into it. And then again I realize another valuable lesson that when we surrender our "plan" over to the Lord He can do amazing things and lead the way and I lose control which is exactly where I need to be.
