OKAY, I'M BACK!

I'll start trying to post all those devotionals I wrote this past summer and I'll try to keep up with my BSF notes too.  I will just try to chime in once in a while.  Thanks everyone for your personal e-mails.  I started this blog for myself and my kids so I'd never lose my thoughts on certain subjects, and they'd have a record of our life.  I was amazed when you all started visiting.  Be patient, I'll find my way again.  God has been so present in my life since all this turmoil started I can't believe I ever lived a life not fully devoted to Him.  Now when I worship I WORSHIP.  When I praise, I PRAISE.  When I pray, I PRAY.  When I am silent before Him, I am SILENT and I LISTEN instead of telling Him what I want.  Glory and praise for all the blessings He has placed in my life the past six weeks.  Has it really been six weeks?  Wow!  Time flies even when you are NOT having fun.  Yes, I still have a sense of humor.  Gotta or else life would be miserable.  Life without my husband is hard to get used to, but I'm doing pretty well, considering.

WHY I'VE BEEN GONE

I'm so sorry I haven't responded to anyone who has e-mailed me. Thank you for wondering where I went. The complete and honest truth is that I was in my own little cave lately. My husand of 24 years is having an affair and left our house on Dec. 9th. Needless to say, all else has taken a back seat. I know we are headed for divorce, but we haven't entered any negotiations yet. Please pray I get through this quickly so I can get on with my life with my kids by my side and free from worry and stress.

The other day I told my son I hadn't done any artwork for three weeks and he said, "That's not good, you need art". He too is an artist so understands. My dabbling with art supplies has always been my retreat from the worries and stress of life. I vow to get into my studio at least one day this week and start feeling the sense of peace and restoration I usually feel after a few hours of escape from the world.

My time with God has been waning, but I will step that up too.
