It's. Been Awhile

Yes, it's been awhile since I've posted. I'm still here!

There has been a lot going on in my life, some of it's good, some not so good - but isn't that what life is usually like?

I have kind of taken a "breather" from blogging and reading other peoples' blogs for many reasons. But, I'm planning to return to a regular schedule soon.

A few milestones are coming up - DQ turns 18 in a couple of weeks, goes on her senior trip in March, and graduates in May. TP turns 21 in about 6 weeks, and will begin the search for her birth mom. I am in the midst of an exciting venture into a new ministry, which I will share with you as things fall into place. What I can tell you, though, is that this ministry is one which is near and dear to my heart, and has been a Godsend to me. It's amazing how this all fell into place - and how God placed these people into my life just at the right time. I don't believe in coincidences!

I hear from TP about once a week. I still miss her. I still pray for her constantly. There is a huge void in my life. I am functioning, but still grieving. There are times when I am overwhelmed with pain, and other times when I can laugh again and forget the tears. I still am in some disbelief/denial as I never, ever, expected our relationship to turn out this way. But, I trust in God's divine wisdom, as there is a purpose to all of this. I take comfort knowing that He is watching over her, whispering to her, and waiting patiently for her return to Him and to us.

Hope all of you have a great week! God bless you!

That explains why I never received that email from you! Glad you are well, even with the ups and downs! Can't wait to hear about your latest ministry!
