Its hard to believe that I haven't posted in five weeks. Mostly because it feels like its been even longer than that. Nothing to overly exciting has happened, except for the past few days. But this wasn't the real reason I wasn't writing. (If you've been reading my blog for any length of time, than you know I can write a post about the most random things.) The stuff I wanted to talk about, I couldn't talk about, for the longest time. Writing about all the thoughts in my head was hard, made them real, and was more vulnerable than I was willing to be over the world wide web. The only thing I wanted to write about, I couldn't. So, no writing.
But, I'm back! I've had the most amazing week, though dealing with some very hard things, it was still amazing. God's hand was so evident, and His provision so perfect that we couldn't help but be in awe. A few weeks ago my prayer was simply: I need some 'happy'. Something good, encouraging to happen. And it did! In other areas the hits kept coming, and though if I could have chosen my 'happy' I would have picked differently. Yet God's ways are so much greater than ours. And His plan so perfect! I am beyond excited to see how He chooses to answer our prayers. What great things does He have in store??
In the next few days I hope to fill in the gaps from the past month, from IF, to work and ministry changes, to huge answers to prayer, and the path we're on in complete trust in Him. He has wrapped his arms around us, specifically me, and held me when I cried. This is all part of the story, tiny steps to Rome, that I want to share. Its a great story, I can't wait for the ending.
