A year and a half ago we moved closer to my family. We are three and a half hours away from my siblings, my dad and stepmom. Last year we traveled home a lot, but we have not been home in the last four months. The last time my blessings saw their cousins, aunts, and uncles were in July. My dad and stepmom made a visit in October. The way things are going right now with my family we just cannot make it home.

When I saw this on Pinterest awhile back I thought, “yes this is perfect.” I am a Christian, who can be a hypocrite, who does backslide, stumbles, and falls. However, God is with me and molding me each step of the way. Each time I fall, He picks me right back up. He shows me areas I need to fix. He does not have me walk in this world alone. I need Him because I am not perfect and neither are you.

I was born on my grandmother’s birthday. I was extremely close to my grandma and cherished our relationship. I remember we would try to see who could be the first one to wish the other person a happy birthday. She always won. She always woke up super early. My grandma passed away the day she was supposed to meet my daughter, her first great-grandchild for the first time. I think of my grandma daily. The hardest day is November 19th, our birthday.

The last two weeks have been somewhat chaotic in my home. My family and I are trying to get settled into our new season of life; mom working outside the home, hubby working a second job, and still homeschooling the two blessings. Our days seem to run together and our schedule holds little time for fun. However, our schedule is not controlled by us, but by Him.

How do I explain what has gone on in my life in the last two weeks? My head is stirring with so many different thoughts and as I try to type it all out it becomes jumbled and confusing. I have a hard time trying to understand what I am trying to say. I type, then delete. I type and delete again. The process continues for 45 minutes. Finally, I decide just to list my blessings. God has done so much to me this past week words cannot express what has occurred. One thing I can say is I choose happiness.

Every morning I look forward to two things: my Bible time and coffee. This is my favorite time of day. Yes, it may occur at 8:00a.m., 9:30a.m., or 10a.m. Regardless of the time, it is my favorite time. I am able to enjoy my cup of coffee while indulging in His word. To me the time stops and my Father talks with me. He shows me His Love through His words. Sometimes He shows me areas I need to fix or shows me areas that confirm I am doing exactly what He wants me too.

Days occur where it is hard to find the blessings. Weeks occur where it is hard to find the blessings. Struggles keep arising. You wonder when they will stop. Your faith is beginning to fade and the enemy is whispering in your ear. You enter into a battle. A battle of holding on and waiting. Waiting on Him. Waiting on His works.
