It's about time!!

Wow...I can't believe I haven't written in over a month.  It's not because I don't love you all who check in now and then, it's just been a crazy month or so.  So much going on, so little time.

Our woman's bible study group completed the Beth Moore study of Living Beyond Yourself, Exploring the Fruit of the Spirit.  What a tremendous study.  Did a lot of soul searching over the past couple of months and found out some things that I really like about myself, and some not so good things that need to be worked on.  I am up for the challenge though and have faith in God that he will be beside me helping me every step of the way.

We started an Alpha group last week which discusses the Christian faith in an atmosphere built for believers and non-believers to be in a safe environment to ask all those questions which we are too afraid to ask.  I am so extremely excited about it, I can't even control myself.  To be able to ask tough questions, and also be in a position to maybe answer a few is a great place to be.  God is so good.  I love seeing people's eyes light up when the dots are connected for the first time.  I am continuing to pray that the Holy Spirit fill each and every one of the hearts of those that are attending and that Jesus will be revealed to them in a way they never thought possible.

I'm also starting an online study of Ruth with Beth Moore's Siesta's.  See the LPM blog in my list of blog's I like if you're interested!  Who needs college when I have all these study groups going on?  hahahahaha

My honey, love of my life, darling sweetheart of a husband is turning 45 tomorrow, our baby boy is turning 17 on the 7th, and our wedding anniversary is on the 8th.  July is our busy month.  Happy Birthday to all those who are also celebrating birthdays in July or celebrating special days as well.

One last thing, I've decided today to go back to working full time.  I believe this is a wonderful opportunity for me and they have agreed to relieve me of my consulting freedom anxiety (CFA) which I am most appreciative of.  I didn't realize how much I love my freedom and I am just not willing to give that up.  It is a win, win situation for both of us.  I get some time flexibility, financial security when it comes to getting a weekly check, some help if I decide to go back to school and they get me!  We are both winners!!  :-)  Don't worry though, I am committed to my blog and bringing you my most random thoughts and experiences, so continue to check in with me to get the latest news.
God bless you all.

Oh...P.S.  We also had a picnic in May where over 200 people showed up.  It was amazing and as soon as I can figure out how to download some of the pictures from facebook, I will share them.  In the meantime, for those who haven't seen my new patio that Devin made for me, I'm going to attempt to post them here.  Blessings again!

P.P.S.  Now that I've figured out how to add pictures...look out!!  Hahahaha  I reserve the right to post whoever and whenever.  :-)
