Returning from Maternity Leave

I’m back…sort of.

In February I took “Maternity Leave” from blogging. I’d planned on returning by August… but as anyone with two kids can tell you, not only does time fly, but priorities change. 

While I’ve missed blogging/writing, I haven’t had a spare minute to jot down the amazing revelations God has given me during these past months. But I’m ready to come back, even if it’s not going to be as frequent as before.

My goal is to post once a month (though it might be more like every 6 weeks) and in between postings I’ll visit your blogs! (I can’t tell you how excited I am about fellowshipping with you all again!)

 I want to thank all my blogging buddies who reached out to me during my months away…offering encouragement, prayers, friendship and advice. It’s so good to know that I wasn’t forgotten. 

Before I close this post I want to tell you a little of what's been consuming my time…mainly a 4 year old and a baby. 

While kids alone can keep a mommy busy, my boys health has brought me into so much contact with doctors I feel as if I’m working as a nurse again! 

Both boys have required numerous visits to their pediatrician as well as different specialists. It seems as if there are very few weeks that go by without a visit to some sort of physician. 

Don't fret.  God is good and we are doing well. We're not as healthy as I’d like us to be, but we have much to be thankful for. 

With that being said, here are some of the topics God has been teaching me and that I hope to share with you in the coming months:

1.       Comfort and Power in the Lord’s Prayer (Matt 6:9-13)
2.       God is my Refuge (Numerous Psalms and other scriptures)
3.       God is my Strength…I literally cannot do anything on my own (2 Cor 12:10)
4.       Sowing in tears and reaping Joy (Psalm 126:5)
5.       God’s timing and priorities over my own (too many verses to share here)

Now it’s your turn:  Please tell me what’s going on in your life or what God is teaching you?
