I thought I would include a picture of Koda. In the future, he'll be the only one I'll be posting pictures and stories about in my family, except for things I want to share about myself and myself only.
I made a mistake posting the entries about events happening in the lives of those close to me. It, like I said at the beginning, would be a sad, painful story, but it truly was an answer to prayer and had redemptive value. I won't be sharing any more about it and have taken down those entries and what I choose to write about my family in the future will be done in a different, not public forum.
I thought a bit about what to do about blogging and decided to stick around as I have made wonderful friends here, some who have been with me and me with them since I started blogging in 2005.
I am changing my focus of what I blog and how I blog. This blog will mainly be a "fluff" blog. Maybe a recipe I want to share or telling about a book I read, maybe a picture of a local event or a picture of the dog, maybe something I'm studying in the Bible.
I wish I had perfect kids, but I don't. I wish my kids didn't do the things they did/do. Other than Jesus, I bet God wishes he had perfect children, but he doesn't. We are all a work in progress for him, those of us who call him our God, Jesus our Savior, or those he is pursuing.
He is molding, pruning, guiding, leading us that allow him to do so and I truly believe in ALL situations he makes beauty out of ashes and he makes beautiful things out of us.
My children are a work of God's process and he is not done with them yet, for that I'm grateful. I will always continue to trust in him, even when things don't make sense and are painful to walk through because I know he's walking alongside me and family and for that I am thankful Lord.
