Seasons of Life
Praising God for this beautiful Sunday morning!
There have been so many changes over the past few months and since I last blogged. I love to visit each of my blog friends from time to time but life has been so busy that there was no time to blog myself.
I started blogging because of my love for quilting but during this season of my life there isn't time for sewing. I try to enjoy each day and not look back but look forward to all God has in store for us on this journey ahead.
Going back to work after being a stay-at-home mom for many years has been a huge change in our lives and God has been there for our family through all the changes. We celebrated our oldest daughter's wedding to a wonderful man in June, our youngest daughter graduated and started college, and my father has had several health issues, the worse being dementia.
God is so good as we celebrate happy occasions and cry over the sad times.
Helping care for my dad has been a very stressful and burdensome time but we trust the Lord DAILY for his strength, provision, and peace we find when we give all our cares to Him during this season of life.
We are learning daily how to cope with this dreadful disease and how to care for our dad. I would love to hear from others who may be going through this situation or who has experienced caring for someone with dementia.
"GOD BLESS YOU"

Not much sewing going on these days.
I have went back to work after many years and things are crazy busy around our house. God is so good, He knows what we need!
Enjoying time with my sweet family!
I still enjoy all the wonderful inspiration and talent and visiting all my bloggy friends!!!

"Many Sorrows shall be to the wicked;
But He who trusts in the Lord, mercy
shall surround him.
Be glad in the Lord and rejoice, you righteous;
And shout for joy, all you upright in heart!"

Most days our lives are quite busy around here. My husband owns his own business and he stays very busy. My girls are both in school and also work so they are in and out and I can barely keep up with their schedules.
And me, well, I'm just the lady who cooks, cleans, runs errands, laundry queen, and tries to keep our home running smoothly as possible in between babysitting for a dear friend and cleaning houses on the side. No glamour here, just a little hard work and common sense...ha!! But, this is what God has called me to do and I will continue JOYFULLY until He gives me further notice!
So, with such business each day I find I'm usually struggling to make time for my quilting.
I have managed to get quite
a bit accomplished the past two weeks. I just haven't had time to blog or post
So today I wanted to show Block #6 in the Blogger's BOM.
I love this block and it was so fun to make.
On a personal note, we have been celebrating my oldest daughter's engagement!
Although the wedding isn't until next summer we are excited and already making plans.
Whitney and Ryan
We love you!!!!
