This blog is a record of my life as the Lord shepherds me through His will. It is a testament to the lessons I learn, or attempt to learn.

Where to go from here


Hope you all are doing well as you sit and await my latest post.  It is so very hard to be consistent.  However, I am learning more and more about managing my time.  As a matter of fact, I have been able to sit down and read several books since I last wrote.  This would also contribute to why I have not been able to write recently.

Ah, well.  That is how it goes.  Isn't it?  You spend time sanding out the rough edges in one part of your life, and all the while another part is left tattered and dismayed. 

I can honestly say, however, that I have been progressing on my couponing.  It has been quite the fun experience, and at times, I even feel as though I could do justice to those who call themselves extreme couponers.  Why, just two weeks ago, I saved over $150 on formula alone, and since I don't really use much formula, we were able to send it on to the orphanage in Africa.  Good thing too, because we may have just found the very Orphan that God has called us to adopt.  He is extremely malnourished and he could certainly gain much from the formula God so graciously chose to give us.

On another note . . . God has been really tugging at my heart strings lately on several things.  I am not sure if I am ready yet to divulge these things at this moment.  But they are there none the less.

Again, I hope you, my readers (the very few I have been able to maintain), are doing well in the days since we have last spoke, and I pray that you continue to do well in the future.

Here is a word of encouragement to leave you with -

Romans 15:4-6
4 For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope.
 5 May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you the same attitude of mind toward each other that Christ Jesus had, 6 so that with one mind and one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
