Catching Up..

I said I was going to do better with this blogging thing, but CLEARLY that was not the case...so, no more declarations of that nature going forward. Instead, I'll just say I will TRY to do better with this blogging thing & maybe I'll actually do it! :)

The latest & greatest news is that I am a new homeowner! Yep, I am & here it is in all it's glory...

Is that not the cutest house you have ever seen?!? OK...maybe I'm a bit biased, but I certainly think it's precious & just perfect for me and my (ahem) future family. The moving has not begun yet...that will take place within the next couple weeks so pray for me! :) 

In other late & breaking news, Brandon & I have both felt a strong calling into some area(s) of ministry. Without going into too much detail, he is currently exploring his options & seeking God to direct him in where exactly he is being called in this area. Will keep you posted on that. I, on the other hand, had the incredible opportunity of sharing my testimony at a banquet last Thursday night. I was quite nervous & unsure of how people would react, but it was something I knew I had to do in order to be obedient to God. He had laid it very heavily on my heart some months ago that this was something I needed to do in obedience to Him & it had been in the works ever since. As is His loving nature, He covered me with His peace & protection & everything went very smoothly! Afterward, I had several people tell me how inspiring my story was & how brave I was - BUT let it be known, I could not have made it through any of it without His strength. On my own, I would never have had the courage to do that - only by His power & grace! Thank you, Lord!

So, I'm going to update the last several months of life in pictures. I hope you enjoy & I promise to TRY to be more consistent with my blogging! :)

Got Baptized...praise Jesus! 

Celebrated the life of my Pop, who passed away exactly 2 weeks before Christmas...

Still miss him so!
Celebrated Christmas.

Me & my sweetie @ Opryland Hotel

Made the very difficult decision to find a new home for this sweet girl :(
Could not have found a better home for her though :)

Enjoyed a visit & beautiful day at Centennial park with Kelsey (Brandon's sister) & her sweet family.

Easter 2014.

So, there's a very quick recap of life in the last several months. As always, God continues to bless me beyond measure. Even in the difficult times, He remains faithful. I am so grateful to truly blessed, highly favored & deeply loved by the Most High! 

Blessings to you all! Until next time...
