I am not very consistent at blogging but I wanted to let anyone and everyone know that I am pregnant again..... Addie will be 18 months old, Brandon will be 16, and we will have a new born! Mark will be OVER THE HILL in Dec. I am going to be busy selling my house and getting ready for our new addition. My husband is in New Orleans helping flood victims.... I would give anything to have him home again! Brandon and I went to counseling today and it was successful! I am praying that God grip our family and help us blend smoothly!
Pray for my mother in law b/c she is no longer welcome at our home b/c of the outrageous acts she has committed in the last week and really the past few years.... I need to not be bitter but it is hard when you are dealing with someone so vile and wicked towards you.
Mark is struggling with the division in our family and I pray God give him strength lead our family in the way of the truth with or without or family's support....
I am reading Atonement Child and her questions of why such unfortunate circumstances happened to her are some of the questions I have been asking today.... I have be humiliated, angry, depressed, and lonely the past couple days and I have had to bury myself in I peter about going through trials and staying in my role! That is a little tougher than it sounds....
everyone is having babies and advancing in their careers and sometimes I feel like I am not progressing but just sitting under a stack of things.... The Lord is having to supply me with strength to prioritize and know what is important to deal with and what is petty. I blur those two alot! I have seen alot of pain and loss in people's lives around me lately and it is hard to swallow. Children separated from their families, death by natural causes and some not so natural.... The Lord is the giver and taker of life but sometimes I feel like life can be drained out of you even though you still have breath left. I am sorry if this has sounded dark but troubling times have caused me to question things and just be somewhat somber.... I love the Lord and know that He will guide my family to a healthy place where we can rejoice together as a body of believers!

Hey Charity. Hang in there girl. You have been blessed with a husband who loves you and a beautiful daughter. Sometimes we just need to remind ourselves of the blessings that we have. Hopefully we will see you guys soon. Thanks for visiting my blog and tell everyone hello for me. I love you Charity. Uncle Jay
