Where I’ve been!

Well, I’ve been gone for a few days from blogland. Not that I haven’t been visiting some of my most favorite blogs and even left some comments, but I’ve not been here. I did not post a SMART habit Saturday post this week because I was busy Saturday. Friday night was an all girls sleepover at my aunt’s house. Me, my daughter, my mom, my aunt, two cousins and one of my cousins daughters. We had a good time. The little girls stayed up past midnight and the floodgates were opened when they got really tired. But, they really did have a good time. I got a chance to talk to my cousin about some spiritual issues in my life and she offered some encouraging words and is letting me borrow some books for guidance! It was a great soul filler! 🙂

Hubby took my daughter to play golf on Saturday when we came home and it was just me and the baby for the rest of the afternoon. We played and rested and had some quality time. It was a good day.

Sunday after Church my husband went to meet with a man about a new job. He has been talking to this man for several months. Well, they finally made a decision and my husband accepted the offer. It is really scarey for him to be changing positions. We have been praying a lot about it and now we just have to have faith that we made the right decision.

This has opened up a whole new thing for my husband and I. See, we haven’t been on the same spiritual page for quite some time and it has been really hard for me. I prayed for guidance and for something to change this in order to open up the lines of communication. Well, this is just what I was hoping praying for. The new company is a company with Christian employees, many of which attend the same church that we do. The have prayer meetings once a week and they thrive on team work. I could just go on and on, but to make a long story short I won’t. The point is that this man prayed with my husband at their meeting and my husband really felt it. He said it felt like someone lay a warm blanket around his shoulders while they were praying. We’ve now begun to talk more about our spirituality and where we want to go with it. And, he even asked me to pray for him yesterday before he left for work because he was dreading calling his boss to let her know!

This truly was an answered prayer.

I wish I could write eloquently how this is changing our lives, but I’m not the best with the written word. I just wanted you to know why I’ve not been around.

Sunday’s sermon really spoke to me too. We finished a two-week series about work. And, that goes for those of us who “work” at home. Not for a paycheck, but for our families. This past week was about how bosses should treat their employees and how whatever it is we do we should do it with excitement and enthusiasm. Not for our boss here on earth but for our boss in heaven. He doesn’t care what we do, but how we do it and why! So, I got to thinking about how much time I’ve been spending on the computer and how little time I’m spending connecting with my children. Not to mention that I’m struggling with teaching them discipline ~ doing what you need to do even when you don’t feel like it ~ when I can’t seem to discipline myself. So, if I’m not around as much as before than you know why. I’m not taking a break from blogging, but I’m taking more time for my family!

To sum it up…we’ve had a very enlightening weekend! Please pray for us as we head into a new part of our journey!

  3. THAT IS AWESOME!!! God bless you and your entire family! Loved your post and your heart!

  4. This is just wonderful! I am so glad he has the new job and I just know it’s going to work out. A Christian environment at work will be good for him and good for all of you. And you take as much of a break and less blogging as you need – you and your family come first! Spend time with your kids, read to them, play with them, eat with them, do fun things. You will reap a lot more benefits from that than you will from blogging and reading blogs! Don’t worry, we’ll be here when you get a chance to come visit 🙂

  5. I am so glad that your prayers were answered! That is wonderful news. I hope this new job for your husband turns out perfectly.

    And as far as taking a break from blogging, I know exactly what you mean. I have been trying to cut back on my computer time as well. In fact, I have read several posts recently on this subject.

  6. That is great news. I felt so exicited for you as I was reading this.

  7. I found your site through The Mom Blogs and I’m going to rate you a 5 stars!! I loved this post. My husband and I are not on the same page in our faith either. I have recently “reclaimed” my faith and expected him to do so as well. Well that was SO not how God wanted it to happen. Yesterday, my husband told me that he was planning on attending church with the kids and I again full time! Praise the Lord!! Reading this post I really felt like you have recently experienced the same joy I experienced yesterday. I’m so happy for you!
