Well, Hi There Friends!

Oh My! I knew it had been a while since I’d blogged. I’ve missed it. I didn’t even realize it has been four whole months! You probably thought I just up and quit. Well, lucky for all of us, I just took a repreave…I’m back! Whoot Whoot!

So what have I been up to for the last four months you ask? Hmmm, let’s see….surviving tax season, wrestling season, Easter, soccer season, 8th grade graduation, end of the school year chaos, celebrating our 15 year wedding anniversary, t-ball season, VBS, running my first ever 10K, nearly completing my Associates of Arts degree (as in, all the work is done just waiting for my diploma to come it the mail), accepting a new position (Kids Ministry Coordinator) in addition to my current secretary position at church (also adding more hours), not reading any books (ugh, sad face), and barely making my way through a Bible study….among all else life related! WHEW! So there, that’s why I haven’t blogged for four months, and now we move on.

As I said, all of that “stuff” is now behind me. There is still plenty of life ahead, but for the time being I feel like I can actually breathe again, aside from a slight case of exhaustion I am working through.

So, now what? Well first, I seriously hope to get my nose buried in a good book ASAP. Taking any and all suggestions! Second, I am looking forward to blogging more regularly. I have lots of exciting things I am working on for my job. Our family is getting ready for some vacation time next month. I went ahead and signed up to run a half marathon in three months, so there’s some training on my agenda. And honestly, I am most looking forward to just being a mom, wife, sister, daughter, friend…ME again. I can plan for tomorrow all I want, but only God knows what will actually happen. I am yours Lord, take me where you lead!

So as I look to the next chapter I think of this verse in Isaiah…


All of those things and events that took place in the last four months were stressful, necessary, and amazing all at the same time. But they are done and how beautiful it is to think that all of that compares not to what God has in store for the days to come.

Be blessed friends as we run toward the future He has laid out for us.



About believingjoy

Who am I? That's a good question! I am Jen...a blemished woman who enjoys a tidbit of tidyness mixed with dash of craziness to create a life that is simply mine! I adore my 4 children and their daddy. I love little bits of wild like tattoos and things that make us unique. I like to mix vintage with new and strive for progress over perfection! I believe that not a single person on this planet is perfect and that's okay, it's what makes us who we are. My desire is to find joy is all circumstances with a smile and a choice to believe.
