Life

Each step of life is a journey that you choose to walk.

Each moment of life is another line, sentence, paragraph and chapter of the book called your life.

Enjoy all that life has to offer, good friends, good food, good coffee and as always wisdom and a good laugh.

The Dog, The Kids and more...

I had to let you know that we have had a lot of ups and downs this past week, so I will try to keep it all in snapshot forms...but sometimes you have to roll with the punches!

I'll start with the dog...Parker...
Right after Christmas we found out that Parker had diabetes and has been on insulin since. We first started with prayer. We believe that God can heal our dog, so we prayed. Our goal was simple: help him lose weight, get him on a structured exercise program (as we began ours) and to change the dogs' eating habits (as we began ours). As of yesterday, Parker is off the insulin!!! He has lost a total of 12 pounds so far (that is a lot of weight for a beagle)! God is GOOD!


  
and now...the rest of the family...the kids were out of school for 2 days this week. This makes for a long week at home and a short week at work. I'm so thankful to work for a company, organization, business that allows me to be a SAHM when I need to be.

Last week my daughter landed wrong on her hand and is now in a soft brace. We are waiting to see if she will need x-rays, but we have another week to wait.

Yesterday...I thought was going to be normal day, but God had other plans. My car broke down right after I dropped the kids off at school. Made me stop a realize just how much I am NOT in control.

Today was a full day that started with the morning show and ending with a fantastic meeting, but then I totally forgot to pick up the youngest from school before getting the other two...good thing the schools are so close to each other.


We have also been very  with work, as in our company, Krouse Drafting Services, LLC. Since '08 with the slump we have struggled to keep our little company going. Again, I have been praying. Praying for my husband, my marriage, my children, and for our finances. It seems that trusting God with our finances is the hardest thing to do. Why is that? I'm sure I'll touch on that in the near future, but I do know this. God listens, and when I am quiet enough...I hear Him answer. God has shown me in the past 3 weeks so many blessings, that I (once again) have no doubt that He is in complete control. 
 Maybe life has been a struggle for you too. You may be asking yourself if you can trust God. If you are reading this blog I want you to stop just for a moment and reflect on all Who God is and all that God is doing. He loves you. It may be hard to trust Him the first time, or even the hundredth time, but you can trust him.


I only want to share with you what God is doing in our lives and to be as transparent as I can so that He can be seen.

~Peace & Blessings~
