I'm sorry it has been so long since I have made an entry on this blog.
I'm still here. I just haven't known what to say.
Yes, I have had plenty to blog about.
Merritt and Mason BOTH started school 2 weeks ago.
And we took pictures (that I just uploaded off of my camera.)
Molly is now 15 months old and is growing in so many ways.
I have just been in a strange place.
I've been soooo exhausted. I just want to sleep.
Which I think is a symptom of where I have been emotionally and spiritually
(not to mention that I need a new mattress and its tooooo hot to sleep well at night).
And as I have been praying about all of this, I am realizing that I have been grieving a bit -
grieving the loss of my expectations and hopes for a couple of my friendships
grieving for a friend over the loss of her expectations for her family
and in the midst of that, my grandma passed away last week.
But my God is so good.
He uses this time in my life to draw me closer.
To reveal himself as my comforter.
And to teach me.
He brings me joy in my tears.
He brings me new opportunities to be light to my loved ones.
And He makes Himself tangible when I need Him the most.
I am getting on an airplane early tomorrow morning to go to my grandmother's funeral.
She LOVED the Lord and soooo looked forward to the day she got to be with Him.
So as I grieve my loss, I rejoice for my grandma.
Next time I'll post pictures.
