A Trip South

We made a trip recently to see our granddaughters. The drive took us 18 hours to get there. We spent a day and a half then we had to get back to work. Another 18 hours drive back to work. The trip was well worth it but very long and tiring. I love traveling by car but the drive from north to south was fairly barren. Not much to look at. I did get a few pictures but nothing spectacular.
So here is a sample of what we saw.

Then we ran into this scene when we got over the border into New Mexico.

But the best view of all was our our beautiful granddaughters. 
We are very thankful that we were able to visit them. Every moment spent with our family is worth everything to us.

It's Been Too Long

It's been ages since I last posted on my blog. I have been extremely busy over the last few months with many changes going on in our little world. I will give you a quick rundown on what has been happening here. I accepted a new job out of state. We have kept our home just moved temporarily as far west as I could have ever imagined.
I really did not plan this move it was Gods plan. We had been struggling with a work injury and a long term job loss. As anyone who has been job hunting lately you might know there are few good jobs available to be had locally in small towns. We really tried to stick it out and stay in the same area. I love our little town and our farm. I fought tooth and nail to find a job in the area but after weeks and weeks of being stubborn I realised that fighting to stay was not in our best interest. We prayed and prayed until we saw the path that God was directing us to.
The move was hard on me. I did not think I could be happy away from our family and home. But, knowing that we are serving God and following his direction has helped to put everything into perspective.
The new job we accepted is in community service to needy children. I wish I could tell you more about the job but privacy laws are strict in this nature.  I will be stopping by to check out all the blogs I have not kept up on. Please be patience with me while I catch up with all the good reading I have ahead of me.
On a side note Grandma Bonnie's Closet will be working on a Holiday Gift Guide for the month of November.
