Here I am with my cake.Here I am with the group. The picture was taken with an iphone and the sides are a little blurry. My mom came to babysit my girls while I went to lunch and brought me a bouquet of tulips. I thought that was incredibly thoughtful and they look beautiful on my kitchen table. For dinner, we went to Gene's mom and dad's house for pizza and an ice cream cake. We had a great time hanging out with all of his family. It was a great day! And I will get to celebrate one more time this Saturday night with my family....my parents and my younger sister and her family. And now for the good-bye... I am letting my blog go for a while. I have hit a season where I simply cannot keep up with it like I would like. My perfectionism won't allow me to do it at random times. If I cannot do it regularly, then it stresses me out. It hangs over my head on the days that I do not do it. I have also noticed that as I am studying my Bible or working on a Bible study, I am constantly thinking, "Oh, that would be great to share on my blog". That is the wrong reason to study my Bible. I am not just studying for me and listening to what God might be saying to me...I am studying for all of you and what might encourage you. I also feel like I am robbing time from my children. I want to be "present" with them and the computer distracts me. There will be time for this type of ministry/activity when they are in school. I am also going to limit Facebook time too. That is a huge time waster. I hope you have enjoyed a look into my life....and I hope I have encouraged in your walk with God.
