Hello out there...

Wow, I can't believe it has been a whole week since I last blogged.
A whole week since I have even looked at another blog.

Whew. It has been a week. Let me tell you. Well, I can't really tell you the details, but I can tell you...it's been a week.

A life changing, messy, much needed, never gonna be the same, no fun, yucky week.

Keeping my family going was about all I could handle.

One of my friends saw me this early this week and she said this,

"You've got that deer in headlights look. You okay?"


Yeah, I'm okay.

So, sometimes life gets messy. It gets yucky and we just have to dig in and get through it.

A couple people that know my situation have asked, "How are you staying so strong?"

What else am I gonna do?

Life just happens.

Sometimes its all rosy and lovely.

Sometimes its all thorny and needs some pruning.

So, that's where I've been.

It's so much better now. I am good. The fam is really good.

I can say this looking back...

The week has also been full of God's mercy, love and protection. I have not been strong by my own strength (Philippians 4:13) It is not by any protection of this world that I find refuge (Psm 91:4-5). And yes, I am finding much joy and purpose in my situation (Exodus 9:16)

That is how I stay so strong. That is why I am okay.

Blessings to you all this week.
