New Blog, New Life

I hate it that so much time has gone by since my last post. There have been so many exciting things, so many joys, so much learned. It's been beyond words...the joy that this last month has held. I thought with a new life, so to speak, that we needed a new blog. My last blog was committed to journaling about the journey from Egypt into the desert. The journey that I had not been given any notice that I was going to take. It was like an exit from my homeland in the middle of the night, with only seconds to grab that things most important to me. I was ussered out into this dry and foreign land, not knowing where I was going. But even though I had not been given time to prepare, I was prepared. God gave me grace when I needed it, in that very moment. It was a miraculour thing to experience, knowing that it was all God's doing. But...that is all history now it seems. Because I have reached a place that is a blessing. I have reached a place flowing with milk and honey. It is a place where broken dreams have been restored ten fold and hurts are being mended. I keep wondering if it is all too good to be true. And then I remember. God is capable of doing exceedingly and abudantly more than we ever think or imagine. This is what that feels like. I am living in His exeeding blessing over my life, His abundant grace. What's so overwhelming is that I DO NOT deserve this! That's why God is so exceedingly good!

So, here's to a new blog, a new life, a new start and a new little family.
