I've been hearing alot of the same thing over and over again lately. I've heard it from my father-in-law. I've heard it from a friend. I've heard it from a visitor in our church. Most importantly, I've heard it in my heart from my Father. I've heard that it's time to start this blog back up!
During the time I took off from writing here, God has done some amazing things in our lives. We gained a son-in-law. We lost two dear ladies in our church. We were blessed with two grandsons! We bought a house and moved. I changed jobs. We have made some significant dietary and health changes.
Some things have remained the same. Pink is still my favorite color. I still prefer my coffee quite strong. A certain little black dog still snuggles at my feet. I am still fascinated by geysers. And I still use the same brown Bible I've been using since I was 13 years old.
I have learned some pretty powerful lessons during this time as well. There is a song that says "I'm drinking from my saucer, 'cause my cup has overflowed." The lessons and the blessin's have been used by my Father to guide my steps down the path He has chosen for me.
I am still seeking His favor in all I do. Seeking definitely has the idea of actively searching as opposed to randomly glancing. It takes deliberate work and does not come naturally. But I am willing to put the effort in to find favor from my God.
Welcome back for another leg of the journey!
