I've Got A LOT of Catching Up To Do!

So, it's been a while...oh, who am I kidding?!'s been YEARS since I last posted a blog!  I thoroughly enjoyed it, and it seems to still be a "thing", so here we go...take 2!

A LOT has changed over the last few years.  One of the major milestones for me personally was the addition of a vehicle AND individual on my insurance!  Yes, Kayelee is driving...has been for over a year now!  My, my, my how I've had to trust the Lord (especially concerning my nerves!).  Thankfully, Kayelee is a VERY responsible teen and has a great driving record thus far (do we knock on wood now or later?!)  This was a HUGE deal for her (how well I remember), but a "HUGER" deal for me!  Did I mention I've had to trust the Lord?  It's a bit like that game we used to play as kids...the trust game.  We'd fall back and trust that the catcher was going to catch us, not leaving us to slam backwards to the ground.  These types of milestones in life are the "fall backs".  We have to completely trust that God will do the catching.  You see, we can't always protect/shelter/smother our kids...and when you think about it, there's not much in life we CAN control. We can only guide and trust...not in ourselves...but God!  His safety net is the strongest one out there, so I choose to trust in His ability to "keep that which I've committed...".  It's funny how we can learn deep life lessons from near whiplash and skyrocketing auto insurance!

Word of the blog:  TRUST

Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, "He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I TRUST."
Psalm 91:1-2
