Confessions of a Pitiful Poster

I'll admit that I've been a pitiful poster here for the last...well, just look at the date on the last post. Pitiful! We have so much going on in our little world right now that my head is literally spinning. And, it's all happening so fast!

Here's the brief: no more homeschooling, so we needed to find a school for the boy who will be in 9th grade, the girl was graduating (if you've ever filled out fafsa - nuff said), and we needed to find the right house and get him registered for school. Well, God has truly brought it all together better than I ever anticipated. There are so many small details that I'd love to share, and this whole experience has led me to a greater awareness of His impeccable timing and my need to not fret and to just trust Him!

We are now in the throws of post- graduation (the graduation ceremony was beautiful, she was radiant and now she's looking forward to attending Watkins College of Art & Design). We are packing up and moving out June 30th to our new little country-style house and Sean will be attending the high school he was hoping for. I can't wait to share pics of the house with you, but I need to get moved in and settled first, I think. Or, just drive on out and visit us!

I do have pics of the graduation ceremony(LOTS of em, but I could only put 5 on here?). I have to say that I am so proud of our little girl...

I'm hoping to be a better blogger as soon as the dust settles - of course, dust never truly settles...hmmm.

Remember to Praise!

So much sadness and heartache in the lives of dear ones around me; struggles in my own life that sometimes seem larger than life...
This is for when I tend to forget that God IS in control and rather than worry and mope, I should praise Him!
Are you with me?

Psalm 47
For the director of music. Of the Sons of Korah. A psalm.
1 Clap your hands, all you nations;
shout to God with cries of joy.

2 How awesome is the LORD Most High,
the great King over all the earth!

3 He subdued nations under us,
peoples under our feet.

4 He chose our inheritance for us,
the pride of Jacob, whom he loved.

5 God has ascended amid shouts of joy,
the LORD amid the sounding of trumpets.

6 Sing praises to God, sing praises;
sing praises to our King, sing praises.

7 For God is the King of all the earth;
sing to him a psalm of praise.

8 God reigns over the nations;
God is seated on his holy throne.

9 The nobles of the nations assemble
as the people of the God of Abraham,
for the kings of the earth belong to God;
he is greatly exalted.

Someone please tell me where has the time gone?? 18 years ago a tiny, helpless baby girl came into the world. She was needy and looked to me to make everything okay. As she grew, she talked incessantly, followed my every move and couldn't get enough of being in my presence.

That precious baby is now a precious young adult who would rather die than give in to neediness. She must have used up all of her words. My presence is not such a necessity.

But, I wouldn't trade the blessing of watching her grow for anything. I'm so proud of her self-confidence, quiet grace and independent spirit. She knows who makes her world secure and seeing her grow in her faith and love for her maker is more than I could ever ask.

Happy Birthday, Sweet Alyssa!
