Gee (can you start a blog with, “Gee?”)….it’s been terribly tough to keep up with my blog all summer long! I have had so much activity in my life since spring….one daughter graduated from college and became engaged, while the other moved back home with us bringing along her husband and daughter….and then they moved yet again last week to their semi-permanent residence while finishing college. I have traveled to New Orleans, Nashville, and the Blue Ridge Parkway within the past five weeks! And during all of these changes, I have tried to maintain my daily Bible Reading, Bible Study and Prayer Time. Whew!
I have to say that God has been very good to me. He has provided me with strength and energy to hold up during all of these changes. He is always faithful!
One thing I have given up during this summer of craziness is Facebook. I found that it began to dominate more and more of my time while worrying more and more of my mind! I soon learned that anything, anything, even something meant to be good can be used by satan to attack and weaken us. While I have enjoyed the time away from Facebook, part of me really misses it…..because I loved to connect with my Christian friends. I enjoyed the sharing back and forth of Scripture, prayer requests, and photos of the babies, grandbabies, hubbies, pets, gardens and crafty ideas. Because of this, I decided to try something new by creating a page for “The Homespun Wife” on Facebook! I pray that you will join me there and we can be a godly encouragement to each other.
These days may leave me feeling like the gingerbread man, running to and fro and screaming, “Catch me if you can!” And I really hope you will catch me…because I’ll be looking for you!
Until next time, may God bless you with the joy of His presence.
~For You have been a shelter for me, A strong tower from the enemy.
