Blog Pause

It has been just over a month since my last post and the delay has been for several reasons. One big reason my posts have been so scarce is a war within. I really want to be totally honest and raw with people and especially our Christian friends. I just don't think this is the place for that though. I'd rather talk and split the wounds open in person, on the phone or through an e-mail. But I have a hard time holding back the whole truth when I'm typing. I'd just rather not hide things, but not everyone who reads this blog REALLY knows me. So some of the things I write might not come across right or give a wrong picture of what I really mean. I guess the war is that I feel like I need to keep it pretty surface, but I don't really want to.

We've also been extremely busy! In the last month we've gone on two short trips and one LONG trip. We also have a trip planned for September, one possible trip for October and a move November 2nd. For a family that almost never travels, we've been on the road a lot!

When we went to Florida, our long trip, we found an amazing house. We work out the details and have a contract pending on it. We are hoping my mom and dad will be able to close on the house a week early and have the carpet replaced before we get there. It would be a much easier and quicker job without all of our stuff in the house!

I will try to keep up better over the next few months. I feel like we will have A LOT going on through Christmas, then things should taper off. We'll just have to see. In my sunday school lesson I've been studying idleness and have been greatly convicted. Though I often have something to do, I am not sure that I am always doing the thing I should be doing. With that, I am off to take the clothes out of the dryer and put a new load in.

In Christ,

Good to hear from you on here again! Your house looks great! So glad you were able to find one. I'm going to do my best to make a trip down to see you before you leave. I've got to see that little girly of yours!

I found your blog through your facebook (my mom is friends with you).

As you have probably already put two and two together, you're going to be the new owners of our dear, dear home.

I took some time and read a few posts in your blog and must say, that you seem amazing. I also met your sister as I work at the State Farm and service your parents policies. They are so very nice. She spoke very highly of you and your beautiful family as did my mom. I'm so glad that you're buying our house. It's a very bittersweet time in my life but its relieving to know that a wonderful, beautiful Christian family will make more memories and take care of this nest.

Anyways, I hope it doesn't seem weird that I read your blog and I hope you don't mind. I'm a writer myself and blogging has become very therapeutic for me.

Hope you have a blessed day! :)
