I did not intend to take a blogging break, but that is what has happened and will most likely continue to happen until September. Many changes are taking place in my family at this time and it is taking all of my energies. It’s not bad. It’s the cycle of life and God is working in me at this time. I am finding once again that even when everything around me is changing, God never changes.
My children have grown into responsible adults. My daughter, who is working at a camp for the summer, called yesterday and with tears in her voice told us of leading one of her campers to a saving knowledge of our Lord. Number #2 son is spreading his wings and starting to fly as he handles situations and goes through his first job hunt as part of his new life that is about to begin as a college student next month. Number #1 son is blossoming as a husband and facing his responsibilities in a manner that makes my heart swell. It is a joy to learn more of my new daughter as she settles in as a member of our family.
My children are showing me that, even though they no longer need me as primary care-giver, they still need me…my listening ear, my advice, my love, and for the younger two…some money. 😉 Although in the past I have dreaded this time of empty nest, I now look forward to it with the eager anticipation of seeing what God will do next in our family. There are exciting days ahead!
Blogging for the next several weeks will be sporadic. Thank you for your patience. I am praying about starting to share some of what I am learning as an empty nester. There are so many “mommy” blogs, but it seems that very few share about the stage of life that I am in. I have been preparing for what is coming for some time now and am finding that that has been a big key for me. Thanks for listening to my rambling.
until the next time…
