It’s Been a While…

I know I have been gone for a while, but I am back now. Not the same as I used to be but that’s okay.

I was in a flare for two weeks and now am suffering the aftermath of muscle spasms and cramping while binge watching the Walking Dead. Thankfully my amazing husband has been by my side the whole time, and even was able to get me up to the mountains to get some fresh mountain air and vitamin D.

One thing that has been keeping my mind off of the pain is our change in parenting. My children are now 10 and 7 years old, and they are both girls so it’s been a crazy household and has been somewhat chaotic until Rick and I decided to try Parenting with Love and Logic and boy, has it been the world of change with both girls. This is the first flare that I have gone through where I haven’t had to argue with my kids and it’s been very nice.

We also decided that this summer we are going to be staying home and working on the outside and inside of our house. The cherry tree even decided to bloom a few days ago. Isn’t it gorgeous?

One thing that I have wanted to share with you all for the last few days is how I have gone out to our living room to pray in the evening, and I haven’t had to say a word to feel the overwhelming joy and love that our Father in Heaven gave within me. I have been extremely stressed the last 6 months and finally I have been able to feel the peace that is given to use when we fully give our lives to Jesus Christ and live by His Word. It’s taken me this long to figure it all out, but it’s better late than never, right?

Trust in Him and life becomes more simple, and I personally have been able to fight the trials that are given to me because He is carrying me through. Without Him I would be unable to continue.

I know this isn’t the blog posts I normally share, but I just wanted to give a bit of an update and continue to pray for all of those who are lost and looking for an answer. He is the answer. I promise.
