Growing Pains

Hi there! It's been over a month since you've heard from me in this forum and, a lot has happened. A lot has changed.

Tomorrow marks one month since I began my new job as the site admin for our church. It also marks one month since our baby started her first year of preschool. Looking back, I still smile when I think of the way God aligned those two major events in our lives. Who could have planned such a thing so perfectly, if not Him? I think it's safe to say that my love for planning comes from our Heavenly Father.

He is good.

In my absence from this blog, I have been experiencing a lot of growing pains. Actually, I think it's safe to say that our entire family has been experiencing growing pains of some sort. My husband, my daughter and I are all being immersed into new situations and new experiences that require much growth on our part; mentally and spiritually. While this need for growth has caused me some anxiety, it has also allowed for me to live with my palms to the sky; trusting in God to guide our way.


The last time you heard from me, I was battling an internal debate as to whether or not my time of blogging here about "losing weight while living life" would come to an end. To be honest, the debate is still real in my heart and I've turned it over to God. I pray that He will guide me toward my next move.

Of course, I've also discussed this debate with my husband. When talking about my thoughts of ending this blog, I notice a theme of reasons why I consider calling it quits. Vanity, judgment and privacy are some of my major considerations. Which, are then debated with the great opportunities of being able to help inspire others, share, create and document moments that we do not want to forget. 


I am still not completely at peace with a decision, which gives me the feeling that God is still working in me.
