an update

It isn't about the weather--which is perfectly BORING!! Still snowing, still foggy, overcast, grey, and cold.

This post is about life--what is happening here.

It's time to update.

Nic has moved home (back to Emporia)--brought his girl--and their soon to be born little boy--yet unnamed.

Ups and downs, ins and outs, it's been a rollercoaster ride which Roger and I are wondering if we will survive.

Things are out of order, chaos reigns, and life is VERY real right now. All the routine, and regularity of our orderly life has pretty much flown out the window.

HOWEVER! In the midst of it all that, the still small voice of God is continueing to guide and comfort.

It is like spotlights are shown on moments that will stand out in your mind and memory for the rest of your life.

Life is changing so fast and furious around here I feel I can hardly keep up. It is hard I'll admit it, but we are taking each day as it comes. Working together to prepare ourselves for a new "normal", what ever THAT is!

......will keep you posted.


  1. I bet it doesn't look quite so chaotic to God. In the beginning just one word from him brought order, and I think that's still true today. Ooh boy. Parenting. :) I hear being a grandparent pretty much tops the lottery though. One preacher said, "If we'd known the grandkids were going to be this great, we would have treated the kids better." Think of the joy, Andrea. There's probably going to be a whole heck of a lot.

  2. Uncertainty is a great blessing, as it bumps (or sometimes knocks) us out of our comfort zone and forces us to look at everything in a new way. I love every one of you, and I know there are wonderful things ahead for you all. This is your chance to provide the comfort to yourself & yours that you've always provided to others. Love always, Shiuvaun
