A New Season for daughter and family.
There are seasons in all our lives, some are seasons of rejoicing and others are seasons of grin and bear it. There are times of abundance and times of famine....in different areas of our lives. It would be nice to say that not all of us going through these seasons, but then, that wouldn't be life.
In each we have the chance to learn. There are times I love learning and times I am sure the Lord feels He is dragging me through the growth He wants for me. Each season is for His glory and not for mine.
Two years ago we went through a long period of unemployment and insecurity. During this time I put my hands to the plow. I opened up two businesses. One I named my Leah and one my Rachel. Both businesses provided for our family. One, however, wore me out. This year it brought anxiety and body aches. I pleaded before God for strength or provision to quit.
Two weeks ago I took the leap of faith and quit. I called someone else to take over my clients and the transition has begun. When I jumped off, God provided through a commission check through my husband's job.
New Season, Spring...outdoor movie with Grandson Joshua and Benjamin.
As summer approaches I find myself in a new season. HOME!, ready for summer with Benjamin and available for the coming babies...all three. I now have time to try to enlarge my decor business.
A New Season for our fifth child as he graduates.
As Benjamin said today, "in a few weeks I will be a fourth grader! Can you believe how fast this year has gone by? That means when it goes fast it has been a fun year!" I had to laugh, what a wonderful outlook on life.
Benjamin is the youngest in the Strings Ensemble.
We close the school year with violin concerts, field day at the school and graduation of our fifth child. A new season for us all. Our son will enter college in the fall, Benjamin will enter 4th grade, our son will complete his new home (with his brother's construction business), our third son started a new career and three babies will be born. This Mom/Grandmommy will see what the Lord has in store for me. For now, I am jumping for joy over closing one business and entering a new season.
