Stretching....hurts a bit

I have been going through some times of stretching lately.  All somewhat difficult things...all things the Lord is teaching me.  I decided that my "theme" for this year was Relationships. Well, as soon as that happened, the Lord challenged me with some relationships.  First, in January my grandmother passed away.  I miss her very much!  The Lord taught me I don't have a guarantee of tomorrow...I need to make every moment count, for Him. 

Through my personal study time in the Word I began to feel the Lord calling me towards mentoring/encouraging the younger women and new Christian women in our church.  I am not sure where that is going but I am waiting on the Lord for answers.  But, I had a relationship in my life that was not right.  Without going into details, my relationship with my mother-in-law was not where it should be.  I had some time with her alone a little bit ago and was able to talk things out.  Now we are moving towards a better, God honoring relationship.

Then a few days ago our puppy died.  Again, sparing you the details, we all were a bit crushed.  It took me a few days to get to a point where I could stop seeing the ordeal in my head every time I closed my eyes.  But yet again, the Lord used it to mend a relationship.  My beautiful daughter just turned 6 recently.  I realized that my time with her has not been quality time.  I have another child who will be 2 in August.  He has taken up a lot of my time.  That is ok, but M (my daughter, I will not use my kids names in this blog) needs to know that she is equally as important.  I have somehow lost track of that and now I am back on! 

So I am being stretched...and sometimes it hurts.  But all the while, I am mending the most important relationship, my walk with the Lord.

New blog

I have decided to begin blogging again.  I want somewhere to keep track of all I am learning from the Lord.  I am not very good at writing things out...but I can type and I enjoy the computer.  So here it new blog.  I will try to post often but I am not making any promises.

This will be a place to record life as I live enjoy the ride with me!!
