Difficult Days...

Sorry for the lack of posts.  Good intentions are sometimes side-tracked by God's plan.  I don't know if I have mentioned this or not, but I have gone back to teaching the "littles"...those I affectionately love and adore for their innocence.  I am a part of a CBS group in my area and am truly blessed to teach the young 2s every Wednesday.  Oh, to be young and innocent again?!!!   On top of that, my mother has been experiencing some painful side effects from a vein procedure and now may be facing treatments due to spinal degenerative disc disease. Life is unpredictable, but God is always in control and knows what is best.  If only we are willing to stop, be still, and listen.  I had hoped to be blogging on a regular basis this new year, but God has other plans.  And, truth be told...they come first and foremost!  Please pray for clarity as I teach the little ones each week, and pray for my mother and dad ( bless his heart he is at his wits end).  God is in control, and the plan has already been written.   We just need to just follow him.  Sometimes easier said then done!
