Life is Good

Hey friends and family, I feel the need to check in and let ya'll know what is happening in my life and with this blog...

First as to what has been happening in my life, here goes...I have been having a wonderful sabatical you might say, just resting and relaxing, doing some studying of The Word of God, and I even had me a wonderful weekend vacation catching up with some old family friends in Washington. 

The rest and relaxation was much needed and I can safely say the depression is over...Praise Adonai...as for the studying of The Word of God, I am finding that when I go back to the Bible I find peace and solace...and whole again.  When I am away for too long I start to feel there is a hole that slowly grows, and I feel as if I am missing an integral part of...me!

This last weekend I spent with old family friends, in fact you might remember how we re-connected through this blog...anyway..it was a blast, we went into Vancouver and walked around the saturday open-air market, (that was an experience) then we went into Portland and found us some food carts on 23rd and had us some lunch. We also found our way to Voodoo donuts but the line was looooong, like around the building long, so we took pictures and I promise to post them as soon as I can get them onto my computer.  There was swimming and walking and some good food.  My friend is a wonderful cook and such a sweetie, she went and got me some tamales to bring home to my boys who did not get to go.

So that brings us here to today...I am not going to promise you that I will blog every day or even every other day...I am probably not going to be doing many or any of the Meme's...I would really like to devote my blog to uplifting others, and to bring Jesus and joy to my readers.  That being said, I am human, I will mess up, but I will do my best with God's help to lift up and edify my brothers and sisters, friends and family, and to bring God's Word to the masses, so to speak, in my own way.

Thanks to all of you who have stuck by me and for your words of love and encouragement, blessings to you all. 

Here is a wonderful picture of Miss Molly with a new friend she made in Vancouver this past weekend...Pepperjack the Gecko!

Your vacation sounds wonderful. I love the Saturday open-air market! I will say a prayer tonight that the peace and solace you have found continues.
