Here I am again...

Blogging has become so hard for me.  Not because I don't enjoy it... I love it!  But I have no time.  I pretty much try and go to bed with the kids now and that means I have lost hours of the night when I used to do this sort of thing!

But I am trying.  And I will continue to try.  Now onto some stuff...

Taylor accepted the Lord as her Savior on August 29th and was baptized in the creek behind our home.

She repeated words of faith after me and then was baptized by her dad.
It was pretty special.

Her smile says it all.  My heart overflows.

God is moving her in ways that just amaze me. 
Our conversations about Him and life with Him excite me.
I am so lucky to be a part of His plan for her.

We called her grandaddy that morning to tell him.  He surprised us and came to share it with us.
She wanted it to be private... just family.  It was very special.

Abby is doing better.  She went 7 days without a seizure but they have picked up again.  It's a hard battle.
But God continues to show me His presence all around her.  The other morning she had one... I went to hold her and realized I was not feeling anger.  Later that day when I was thinking about it, the Lord sweetly informed me, "Yes, she had one, and she is STILL OK."  It was such a gift.

Marc is growing... physically and emotionally.  His language has just taken off since we had his tongue clipped.  He is talking like crazy and his personality continues to bloom.  He started back to preschool two days a week.  He loves his backpack!

I am still trying to balance things, still doing laundry, still wanting to craft and decorate more, still being wowed by God like crazy, still facing my own challenges and still trying to find time for everything and enjoy the moment... with a bad hair cut!  At least it grows back! HA 
I think it's time for some color again!


  1. I have tears in my eyes as I write my response to your latest post. Wow. Our God truly is an AWESOME GOD! The photos say it all. What a beautiful blessing your family is. I am honored to share in some small way by reading your blog. You are never far from my thoughts, and always in my heart and prayers. Love you!!! Would love to see you next time you are in VA!

  2. Talk about being out of the blog world! I thought you adopted another blessing named Taylor! LOL I kept thiking - wow she looks a LOT like Brenda! Then I read back on your posts and caught up with the name change! It seems like GOD is working wondering with your lives and despite the bumpy points you are happy and doing well. I am so happy for you all!

  4. So cool! Yay Taylor! I wanted to tell you that out of the blue last week a gal contacted me to see if my organization (impact orphans) would like to get involved with New Horizons. We're currently trying to get approval to do a month long Latvia host program initiative leading up to Orphan Sunday on November 7th.


Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
