So. I've been very out of the blogging loop for a good long while now. A rough pregnancy made my motivation for blogging dwindle, and then having a newborn takes up pretty much every waking(and non-waking) moment.
Now, I don't have a newborn any more and I'm not pregnant, and while I am still busy, I decided that I didn't really have an excuse not to atleast attempt to blog.
LOTS has been going on in the past 8 or so months since I blogged last. Besides the birth of our new little man, Kellen(who is now 5 months old), God has been doing some absolutely amazing things in our family. His hand has been so very evident in our lives and the effects have been simply astounding. I'd love to go in to it all in detail sometime in the not too distant future. On the outside we may still look like the same chicken farming, homeschooling, baby-wearing, bare-footin', Jesus lovin' family that we have always been. But inside our family's core God is teaching us some new truths about Himself that are drawing us in to a deeper walk with Him. The refining process may be difficult and painful at times, but as we are refined(individually, and as a family) the old is falling away to reveal the new. How exciting it is to catch glimpses of what He has in store for us! I have been thrilled to sit back and watch how He is weaving all things together for His good and perfect plan.
Much love to you all!
