2009…Is it really almost over?

7 12 2009

Can it really be almost 2010?  WOW!  This year has been amazing in so many ways.  God has truly blessed our family and taught us so much.  This past year we have sold our home, miscarried a child, moved out of state, conceived another child, had a separation for 7 months (my husband was working out of state, while I had 3 children at home and pregnant at the same time), started a new job,  gave birth to our 4th child and started our first “real” year of homeschooling.  God has been so faithful to us and has taught me many things….

1. That His ways are best all the time!

2.  Patience.

3. That when you think things are tough you need to look at what God is doing in His time and that one day we will understand it all, even if that day is in Glory.

4. That He loves my children more than I will ever love them. (I think of the birth of our 4th child and how He protected me and Ethan).

5. He is my best friend!

6. Schooling can be very hard on a family….expcially with 3 little ones under foot, but He will give the patience and guidance needed everyday.

7. That when a marriage has troubles (ours had a VERY hard time while he was gone for 7 months) He will help you work it out. 🙂

God has taught me so much about friends, faithfulness and providence over this past year.   I am not sure how we survived except for HIM who carried us through.  We praise HIM who cares and loves us.  There will be years in your life that are just plain HARD.  This was one of those years for us.  Plain hard, but loving and praising Him has been a lesson learned.  He is God and we are not, His ways are best and mine are not.  I pray that none of you have to go through a year like ours, but if you do I will pray that God will bring you though it like he did for us.  We are more trusting and more faithful because of it.  God is good, good all the time!
