Twas the year of 2011- And Below I Share the Heart and Hand of Our Lives.
In the Heart of my Life for 2011-
I discovered WHO I am in Christ. Not in the eyes of others, not in who I thought I was, and not in my own strength. IN Christ.
I left the effort of Self, and clung to the Cross of Hope, Mercy, and Grace.
I came to a place of Acceptance. WHO God wanted me to be all along- How far I have to go, and where I have come from.
And more. Deep crevices notched out- allowing the flood waters of growth to settle in.
In the Hand of my Life for 2011-
I accomplished a list of DIY projects that I set to do, and was given more opportunities to try new ideas.
I delivered my 17th baby. Beautiful Baby Girl.
Finished some organizational projects.
Raised Chickens, Turkeys, and more Chickens.
Re-Designed my Blog.
Made it back to the Gym.
Cut our Grocery Bill in half.
Finished a Dave Ramsey Financial Peace Course.
Made new friends.
Learned more about Photography.
Began writing my book, and an ebook.
Started Homeschooling our 8th child ( with the others.)
Held my child’s hand as they rode their 1st bike, nursed my 10th baby, watched my oldest children use their gifts from God, taught my 4yr. old to read, listened to hours of piano practice, flute, violin, and song. Rocked, cradled and comforted sick babies, happy toddlers, and read to the children about their Savior.
Prayed for my husband as I watched him go through the hardest year of his entire life. Held his hand as we became the only two people we trusted, counted on, and literally loved for a time.
Waved good-bye to a large chapter in our lives, With Open Arms- embracing the Future.. KNOWING that what we learn from our lives is more important than where it is.
