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.


  1. I am so happy to see you post. I've missed your posts! Sorry things have been challenging. I know you must be doing so much good with the needy children. My jobs have often been in this sort of field, so I know the work has many lows, and a few highs, but know that what you are doing is so important!

  2. So good to hear from you. I have wondered and wondered where you were... Sorry about the move --but it sounds like a great job... Hope things work out for you --and also hope that you can move back 'home' someday. God Bless.

  3. I kept checking on your blog to see if you had posted and was happy to see this post.

    I know how hard it is to move from an area that you LOVE... thank goodness you are keeping your beloved home and can one day move back there.

    Can't wait to hear all about your new home.... although, I sure will miss your posts on you little pond with the Koi.

  4. I hope you are doing well with the move and it's great that you can keep your house.
