My life is simply that. A weaving. We live in small town USA and I'm living a life I love…

About

I am a wife, a mother… I recently was able to quit my partime job and work out of our home which has been a huge blessing!!!  We are in the wading area of life right now.  Neither Stephen or I could tell you where we will be in 6 months, a year, or even 3 years from now simply because God is choosing to shield our future plans from us at this time.  While it stinks at times, it is teaching us diligence where we are at right now, peace and surrendar on a regular basis, and provisions:  God has provided us with many amazing blessings this year that we would never have planned or expected.

For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord.  Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and future.  Then y ou will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.  You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.  I will be found by you, declares the LORD… Jeremiah 29:11-14

***Updated Jan 2009***  I was going to delete the above ‘About’ section but it serves as a testimony to God’s faithfulness and perfect timing.  If you have received a Christmas card from me at any point in the last seven years you’ll know that we’ve never really known where we would end up or what we would be ‘when we grew up’.  This fall has brought about a new chapter.  I am a pastor’s wife now.  We’ve recently moved and life has changed.  You would think it would be a little more scary, unknown, or chaotic but it hasn’t been.  Yes, it was hard leaving a church I’ve walked into every Sunday for 22 years but God has led us here and we’re home.  For the first time in our married lives we feel settled…

***Updated December 2010***

Another update, again instead of deleting I’m keeping the updates because they show the path of the shuttle that’s weaving the fabric of our lives.   When I wrote the original about I said something about not know where we will be in three years…  crazy thing is, it’s been three years.  I originally started the blog because I was in a very deep spot that I needed a safe spot to express myself.  I’ve always know blogs are public and always kept that in mind but it was kind of a private spot where if strangers found me that was great and if a friend stumbled onto it… alright.  This year, I’m switching some stuff up.  I feel like I can expose myself to more people that I know in real life and share bits about myself that maybe influence those around me more if I leverage this blog.  I could be crazy but hey… call me crazy.

After three years we are planted in New Lebanon.  Doing the thing that God used years to prepare us for…

  1. Hey There

    I saw your question on the Preacher’s Wife’s Blog and wanted to answer… regarding question 3 on the latest survey. I wanted to email since my answer was book length. LOL

    If you want to email me, I will share what I have learned with kids and transition.

  3. I love this “About” section…how it traces the path God is leading you on. Very good idea to keep the previous posts as a reminder.
    I saw your post on “Leading and Loving It” about the A & D retreat. Where do you live? I’m hoping to raise the funds to go but would be going by myself. I’d love to meet you somewhere and give you a ride if things work out. I live in western KY, near Indiana. Let me know if I can help! And keep up the good thoughts on your blog. ( =
