A song to share

Today is Gavin's birthday and Halloween. And I am thrilled to get to celebrate these lovely childhood milestones with my family. What a blessing. We will have a party for Gavin on the weekend.

I have been listening to Shine FM more lately. Mostly because I have discovered that my children are starting to comprehend some of the lyrics to songs that I'm not sure are appropriate. Thanks to the M&Ms commercial Mari runs around shaking her wee bum and yelling, I'm sexy and I know it. But she says it so fast it sort of sounds like - I'msixtyandwoit.

I heard this song on the radio and it really touched me. I have been through a bit of a struggle lately. Don't get me wrong I wouldn't equate it with the more serious struggles in life, no one was ill, no one died, but it was a struggle that hit me in a spot of great weakness. I am sorry to say I didn't always rise above it, nor did I always handle it well. And although I may be a disappointment to myself I also now wonder if maybe that is the point. Maybe we shouldn't always be above our struggles. Maybe it should be hard sometimes. Maybe this is how we grow and learn.

So I'm not perfect. Whew. Glad I got that out of the way, cause I'm not sure I was fooling anyone anyhow. And I'm pretty darn sure God doesn't expect me to be perfect, after all that is why he sent Jesus.

Wow! I have not been writing on my blog lately. It is unpardonable but not without excuse.

1. We have been very busy.
2. I have been having a nervous breakdown.
3. I haven't been particularly keen to share the details of my nervous breakdown.
4. I appear to be very good at nervous breakdowns.
5. OK, I think that is about it...

The big house project we undertook is almost over!! It is conditionally sold and the conditions will be removed by Tuesday if all goes well. Then the possession date is early November.

I am very proud of my husband and what he has done. So on to the next chapter of our lives. Praying it will be a peaceful one! YIKES!

God bless you all and thanks to all of you who have remembered us in prayer it means so much to us. More than you can know.
