Growing and Learning

 I have not been a very good blogger, lol.  It has been over a year since I have posted anything.  I am going to try to do a better job! I am trying to learn how to use coupons better, I am going to try to share with you about this process.  A lot has changed this past year, my oldest daughter is in school and she has grown up so much in the past year, it is so sad.  It is also sad all of the negative things she has learned at school,  this has really become a burden to me and I am currently struggling with the pros and cons of public schools and the pros and cons of homeschooling.  I do have a couple of friends that home school their kids and they do wonderful job their children are so humble and well mannered.  I have prayed about it and I am leaving it in God's hands. 

"A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.  By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love to one another."

" It's Tough Being A Woman "

The past few weeks, I have been depressed and stressed to say the least.  Tonight I was at my worst, so my husband was playing with the girl's and I went into the bedroom closed the door and turned off the lights to have some quiet time to myself....(being a stay at home mom, quiet, alone time is very rare!)

I started thinking to myself " why am I not happy?".  I have a WONDERFUL husband who works very hard so that I can stay home with our two very precious daughters.  So I tried to think back and remember when was the last time that I was truly happy, and I was when I was fully and whole heartedly serving the Lord!!

I don't believe in backsliding, but I do believe that sometimes we let things get in the way of our relationship with the Lord and thus we do not serve him with our whole hearts.  I have not been going to Church like I should and reading my Bible and doing devotionals with the girls like I should.  I have asked Jesus to forgive me for this and I am so thankful for his grace and mercy, and that he is so very forgiving!!

Okay so lets get to the point of my post.  I have been slowly boxing things up hoping that we
will find a house soon and I came across a devotional I bought a while back that I had not even opened. It is "Esther" by Beth Moore


Esther is one of my favorite books in the Bible... it is not your typical story.  Esther is an amazing story about tragedy and triumph.  I can not wait to start this devotional....I know that it was not by accident that I found this.  Jesus is just reminding me how much he cares and that he is ALWAYS there with his arms reaching out for me.  He has all the answers!!
I am starting my first day of the devotional tomorrow and each day I am going to blog about what I have learned and how the King of Kings is so wonderful!!
