Back again....

Life has been extremely busy for so long that I haven't taken time to work on the things I used to that would help me relax and focus on the meaningful things of life.

The more I have used Facebook to share our family life with friends and family, the less time I have actually spent contemplating where we are, what we are doing, etc. I am hoping to take time to focus more on the things that matter and share where I can.

To get started, I will be trying to keep up with a project challenge that focuses on October being Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. More details in my next post.

Since I last posted, my oldest child has graduated from high school. I still have 3 kids I am homeschooling who are now in 10th, 9th and 6th grades. We are very busy with school, extra activities related to school like outside classes and music lessons and just life in general. In the midst of our normal routine and our homeschooling I have still been trying to work part time with various endeavors....which definitely makes life challenging. It's easy to lose focus on what is (or should be) the most important things in life....and it's easy to forget to make time for those pursuits daily like I should.

But the Lord is faithful and is there even in the midst our our busyness and cluttered minds!! I am praying to have more focus and to get my mind less cluttered (and life less cluttered) so I can enjoy my family and those around me more instead of just doing and going non-stop!

Come unto me, all that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.  Matthew 11:28
