Learning, Growing...Praying

Hi! I pray today finds you blessed! I started a new class at church last night. Its called Woman to Woman, Truths From Titus and its being taught to me by my pastor's wife, Kim. I am excited to embark on this new journey. The class is based on the principles found in Titus 2:3-5:

3 The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; 4 That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, 5 To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.
I don't know where God is going to take me in this study, I don't know how God is going to change me during this study, But I'm ready and excited for whatever it will bring. I pray that God uses it to make me a better wife. I pray that God uses it to make me a better mother. I PRAY that God uses it to bring me ever closer to Him.

The last few years have been a journey. I have been through things that I thought I might not survive. But God has brought me through. I can honestly say that I am happier right now in this moment than I have been in my entire life. I have a wonderful husband who loves me more than anything in the world. I have friends who truly care about me. I have a friend back who I thought was lost forever, and it seems we still share one brain after all these years. I have beautiful children who love me. I have a church family who lifts me up daily. I have more love in my life than one girl deserves. MY CUP RUNNETH OVER!! I am truly blessed! The lesson I learned...when you think its hopeless, when you think you just can't do it anymore, YOU CAN'T! Take your hands off of it, stop trying to live and let the One who created you live for you. Let Him guide you into what He would have you to be. When you stop trying to do things yourself, life just gets easier.

I guess that's all my rambling for today, leave me a comment, let me know you're praying for me and let me know if I can pray for you.

I wanted to let you know I am praying you and your new journey. Please pray for mine...I found out yesterday that I am expecting again! We were told several times that our first daughter was a "fluke". Well my God is bigger and better that any doctor. He blessed us again!! Much love to you!
God's Happiness,

We do not share a brain! Oh, wait, yes we do. I'm so happy for you. It makes me so proud to see you on such a good path. And I'm so, so happy that God brought our paths back together at such an important time in both our lives. Love you so much!
