When Worlds Collide

Many of my blogging friends (or should I say friends that blog?) are participating in 31 days of… the brain child of popular blogger, Nester Smith.  I had every intention of participating via In Be’Tween Moms, even had a cute little graphic made. But real life happened.

My husband and I went on a 10 day vacation to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary!

Kid free for 10 days 🙂

Then my daughter got married (I didn’t plan those things to happen in such quick succession on purpose!)


I now pronounce you Mr. and Mrs. Murray

Then I had the baby while they were on their honeymoon.  Then we went househunting for their first place.  God allowed a few doors to close so we could find the perfect little house for them. Now, we are packing and painting and planning for their move-in date of November 10th.

I also squeezed in a trip to the EWomen conference in Roanoke, VA with one of my best friends.  Boy, did I need the cup-filling experience I had there.  God is so good.

Now, my 16 year old is taking his driving test tomorrow.  I had a very intriguing coffee date with a business acquaintance that presented me with an opportunity sent straight from God. We are having an old-fashioned tent revival at FBC Martinsburg (something I never imagined NOT old-fashioned me would enjoy!) this week and I am loving every minute.

We met my grandparent’s for lunch to celebrate Matts’s 15th birthday (I don’t know how it is possible for my youngest child to be 15!).  His birthday got a little lost in the shuffle of wedding festivities although we did manage to have a family party with his requested foods the night of his actual birthday.

Matt turns 15


All this to say, I miss blogging.  I have things on my heart to share that are sitting in hand-written journals (because I do always find time to do that) and I haven’t forgotten about my sweet readers.  In fact, in a few days I will be debuting a brand new look to go with the direction God is taking my writing, my teaching and my heart.  I hope you will like it as much as I do.

But, I have learned over this summer that it is okay to not blog consistently.  That my family needs and deserves a mom that is not constantly on the computer and that at this stage in our life, with me working full time outside the home, that less computer time can exist.  I hope you bear with me while I figure all this out (and I am praying the Allume conference later this month holds revelations about this very thing for me).

What have you been up to?
