The Year of Growing: A New Direction

In January I dubbed 2013 The Year of Growing. My husband and I were making a series of decisions that would have a significant impact on our family, decisions that would require - and produce - tremendous growth in all three of us.

Four months later we are still in the early stages of the process. God's grace and faithfulness have been evident, but this has been far from easy. And while I want to testify to God's goodness, some things just cannot be shared in this public arena. And as I've thought this over, I've realized that it's time to retire this small corner of the blogosphere.

Instead, I've found a new home. One that more adequately reflects the life I'm seeking - simple, humble and quiet. I hope you will visit me at One Quiet Life.

Thankful Thursday

In an attempt to return to blogging, I'm joining others who are publicly giving thanks to the Lord. This week, I'm especially thankful for:

~the Word of God and the wisdom the Holy Spirit imparts to help me understand it

~wonderful, matchless, infinite grace and the evidences of it in my family

~an answer to prayer

~the coming end of a season that's both grown and strengthened my family

~friends who encourage and pray

~friends who have modeled 2 Corinthians 1:3-5

~a book that has offered instruction and conviction

~a book that has made me delight in its wandering prose

~a family outing to my alma mater for a baseball game

~the lingering warmth of a good conversation

Blessings all mine, with 10,000 beside!
