Life takes twist and turns

I know it has been a long while since I have written a post, but our lives have taken some turns.  1) we are homeschooling again 2) my husband's new job requires a lot of travel 3) we are traveling with him when we can.

It has been exciting and exhausting!  The path we have been on this last year has lead us here.  All I can say is I see how the Lord works everything to good.  There were times I was doubting and wondering why are we going through this but it all makes sense now.  The things we went through has led us to a wonderful place for our family.  Is it all according to what I had planned?  Ummmm..... no.  Was it worth?  Yes.

Me personally, I had to face some pretty emotional stuff but it made me take a hard look at myself.  I was able to deal with some deep hurts that I had experienced in my life and forgive those people.  Does forgiving me forgetting and letting those people back in?  No.  But it does release the hold they have had on me.  I have a peace and joy, I can't explain.

I see a change in our family, also.  The kids seem more relaxed and happy.  Mine and Joe's relationship has reached a new level.  Overall things are pretty good, we are happy.  Happiness does not mean we have no troubles and life is perfect.  It means we have reached a place where God leads and we are content to follow, knowing He will work it all to good.  I know it sounds cliche but it is an amazing feeling to face trouble and know God has your back.

We have spent most of the summer traveling with Joe.  Of course we took our school books and did homeschooling on the road.  We homeschool year round, it is what works for us.  There have been lots of field trips and new experiences.  I didn't get much of my organizing list done but I am working on it when I have the time.  

I do feel like I should share our lives, so maybe we can be an encouragement to someone out there.  Therefore I'm determined to be more faithful with my blogging.
