Getting Started

Well, won't this be fun!

I feel like I'm on the starting line for a new season in life....the GET TO BE A GRANDMA phase! So much of life at home is in transition...well, it feels that way, although nothing is really changing here.

I'm still at home. Still spend my days playing on the computer with digital photos and digi-scrapbooking now...writing when inspired...keeping up with friends and family all over the world.
Mark still works his tail off...and I love being able to be home with him...having lunch ready for him when he hits the door...even if I'm still in my pj's sitting at the computer...LOL.

So, if so much is the same, why am I feeling so much change going on??

Well, seasons...leaving another summer behind is always more pool time, no more swim time...sigh...BUT, fall is around the corner, and I'm hoping that Mark and I can start taking walks back out at Roaring River in the afternoons. And with the cool air of winter, I'll fire up the oven and start doing more baking...that's always great!!

Of course, the sad part of this time of year is missing my mom...the anniversary of her death, me turning another year older, thinking's a Memorial Day of sorts. With the grandbaby arriving this fall, perhaps it will be the last one clouded in sadness, and forever more it will be a time of GREAT JOY!!

I can have hope!!

My heart has been breaking in unexpected places the past few months...friends passing away unexpectedly, illnesses attacking loved ones, me missing kids and grandkids, and not wanting to feel nostalgic for all the sadness around my heart right now. I feel tender and raw...vulnerable. I cry at the drop of a hat, even over silly things, like TALKING about not watching a movie that would make me cry...not even watching that movie. Just talking about it. Oh dear! I did want to touch base though as we approach Christmas...all the sadness is making me draw even nearer to Jesus, because He is my hope (and the hope of the world). I've enjoyed my time of Advent, singing in the choir at church, baking cookies for friends and neighbors. It helps me to shift gears emotionally and mentally when I can change it up a bit and do something new. And in God's goodness, He is allowing us to do something new for Christmas! I'll share the detai

Romans 12, Parts 2 and 3: Balanced and Beautiful in Christ

The new posts that I wrote for Balanced and Beautiful in Christ are now live on their Facebook page, and here on my new blog site (subscribe there so you don't miss a thing!). It's been a crazy few weeks (ok...are we going on several months now??) but I'm grateful that God had me write (and schedule) these several weeks ago. I pray that the words bless you and draw you closer to Himself.  Blessings, marina
