Back Again

As I look over old posts, I realize just how long I have been out of the blogging world.  It was not entirely purposeful, I simply did not have the energy to post.  So many emotions have come my way over the past two months that I am quite exhausted.  Emotions ranging from profound grief at deep loss to unbridled joy at renewed love.  From sadness watching a loved one suffer to gratitude at seeing healing. It is true what the Proverb (13:12) says: "Hope deferred makes the heart grow weary, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life."

Some time ago I posted about Embracing Life.  Oh, how that is hard to do in the depths of suffering. During these times, I turned inward finding solace in the depth of my relationship with God, my husband, and family.  I am on the other side now and renewed.  (A fun-filled two week vacation certainly helped!)

To start off my return I will share our most recent addition to our summer nature table. A pile of Spanish Moss my sons found on our recent trip to Florida and Savannah.

The flower peg people took off their hats and, thanks to the help of
a certain three year old, frolicked in the Spanish Moss right away
