I thought I would give a moment and talk about my lack of posting in the month of July. It has been an incredible journey for me...one that was long needed. My friend told me that sometimes things are painful, but that doesn't mean that God takes the pain away...he has a purpose and a reason for that season. So...this month was earth shaking for me...and demanded that I deal with things that I have never dealt with. Issues that came to me as a child...fears and bondage that took me over and controlled me. In the mean time, I became a person over the last years that wasn't what God intended. So, God came in and took them out and now I am in the healing phase and becoming the person God intended. And, I am so thankful that God didn't take the pain away...it required me to change and to become this new person. I look forward to what God is making!

This girl has been caught taking selfies on our cameras. We don't realize she has taken them until we look at our phones. She is so cute...and so preteen. As we are winding down the teen years with Bryn...we are in the homestretch, we see several more beckoning. Caleb will be 13 in one month and Esther is 11...and she is just bursting to be a teenager. She still has that softness of a little girl, but we keep on seeing glimmers in her life that are totally "TEEN." The entrance of selfies is a prime example. Love it. She has always been our quiet, keep to yourself girl...but all of a sudden she is becoming a social butterfly. Lots of friends...texting them on her tablet ( you should have seen my face when she sent me her first text)...small temper tantrums. It's in the mix..and Matt and I feel a little more prepared this time. We have some experience...we know what to expect...what to pay attention to and what to just ignore. By time we are done with this load of kid…
Who knew...16 years ago this journey would look like this? Sixteen years ago these kids weren't even alive...lol. Our oldest actually took the picture, as she was on her way to class at college. Now, truth be told...this picture took several times to take. No, we weren't waiting for any babies to smile...just for my youngest, yes my 10 year old, to get himself together. He still has a funky look on his face, but I will take it. Not everyone is happy all the time. And one day we will laugh at this picture and all of Judah's antics. These treasures have made this journey incredibly difficult, but it's been worth every step. I am so blessed to be their mom. And glad that I get to be their mom. Blessings on this next year!
