Out of Control

Do you ever find yourself out of options. I mean really out of options. Everything that you have been thinking about, planning for, and striving for comes to a screeching halt. Well, that is where I am. I have been making big plans and dreaming about what I want out of life and now I have to just put it all away. Tuck it away someplace safe and pray that one day I can wipe the dust off of my dreams and they will come to fruition. But today, my heavenly Father showed me just who is in control and it isn't me. So now I have a choice. I can accept that He knows what is best for my life and learn to trust Him exclusively and completely or be miserable and depressed and get mad or blame the devil or what ever else we tend to do when faced with a situation that is completely out of our control. So today, after the initial shock and attitude, I will choose to trust. Because I really do trust Him. Yahweh has proven Himself trustworthy over and over again in our life so how could I doubt or blame Him now. I cannot. So today I turn all of my life over to Jehovah who will not let me down. The sad reality is, I thought I had already turned everything over to Him. Now I realize I was still trying to steer things my way. Wow! What a revelation!

Long time no blog! I am not sure why I wait so long between posts except that we are busy with life and I do not take the time. I would like to blog more often so maybe I can be a little more diligent with it. August: things we have been up to: Cade's 7th b-day, my FIL's 70th b-day, soccer and more soccer, working with Titia at All About Sports, hanging out with friends, working on the tree house, stargazing and looking for meteors, working on reading and math, playing games and with Legos, and many more things that I cannot think of right now. September: things we have been up to: Brandon's 25th b-day! (I am surely not old enough for a 25 year old), friends b-day party at Sliding Rock, learning new tricks on the skateboard, study of Ancient Egypt, more reading and math, soccer and more soccer, games and Legos, and again, many more things that I cannot think of right now! The picture with the spider in it was of that spider on a flower in our front flower bed. I would never have noticed it but I saw two dead bumble bees on the flower and it was eating a third. It was quite disgusting but the boys thought it was interesting. We have also enjoyed watching all the butterflies and hummingbirds filling up for their flight south.
