Can you believe it has been almost a year since I've posted? I can. Life is crazy, but all the more to blog about, right? I still have no internet connection, but SOMEHOW I hope to start blogging again. Consistently.
We've added a new addition to our family since my last blog post. It has almost been enough time lapsed to add TWO additions, but one is good for now. :) Ezra Samuel is now 5 months old and a whopping seventeen-ish. pounds. He is a big ole healthy boy and has brought lots of joy to our home. He is a light colored, blue eyed addition to our family. :) After 3 BROWN eyed beauties, the Irish eyes came shining through.
Every day we see God's hand moving on our lives. We are not always faithful, but HE is. And HE is teaching us to be faithful to Him. We now look at trials in life as a necessary part of the crucifying of our flesh. Trials are meant to make us better. Don't be downcast, be uplifted to know that God is actually moving in your life to make you crucified to self and alive in Him.
A thought that come to me yesterday: Sometimes it is hard to tell during a trial if the devil is traumatizing us or the Lord testing us. But, depending on OUR response to the trial, the Lord can get the glory and work in either situation. Be encouraged!
So if the devil is bothering you today, determine that you are going to allow the Lord to get the glory in your situation. It could be the Lord testing you. And when you are tried, you can come forth as gold.
Lots of love to my readers and natural mothering!
