Yep, still here, after all this time.

Life just keeps moving at warp speed, doesn't it?? I have so much to say and no idea how to say it, so here are some updates about my life these days.

*I have been doing Beth Moore's study of David, A Heart Like His. This is the second time I have done it and I marvel at how personal our God is. Each time it has spoken to me exactly where I was at on a personal level.

*We are still adjusting to me working and the kids being cared for by people other than me. Some weeks are better than others. But, I definitely sense the Lord leading me in a new direction once Alivia starts kindergarten.

*Um, my baby girl is going to kindergarten.

*I am beginning to accept the fact that it is time for Mommy to find a new career. This is particularly difficult being that I thought I was going to be a career mommy. But, I know the Lord will bless me with the ability and drive to enjoy both and do both well.

*Divorce is complicated. And hard. And maddening.

*I am taking a girls trip out of town in a few weeks and I am ever so excited! I can't wait to celebrate my best friends life and have 3 days of grown up conversation. Yippee!

This morning, the kids and I joined some family and released some balloons in memory of their Uncle Scott who passed away a year ago. We read the scripture we used at his funeral.
Isaiah 55:12:
You will go out in joy
and be led forth in peace;
the mountains and hills
will burst into song before you,
and all the trees of the field
will clap their hands.

This scripture is especially meaningful to me in regards to Scott's life. He was an avid camper/fisherman. I believe that Scott went out in joy and that Jesus led him forth in peace.

When the first balloon floated out of sight, Alivia said "That one is in heaven." Kevin asked her what would happen with the balloons and she said, "Uncle Scott will get them."

Scott, you are deeply missed. I pray that your legacy of a life transformed will live on. Your life journey was full of inspiration. I hope that you are enjoying fishing in the streams of heaven.
