Brief Update

Life is unbelievably full and good. My twins (Katelyn and Daniel) and Jonathan are keeping me very busy, especially with the Christmas season coming.

This year is especially important since Jonathan is just getting to the age of understanding a bit of what this is all about. He still parrots what we tell him, like last year, but this year he is beginning to try things out. As we teach him the real meaning of Christmas, I find myself challenged to do the best communication job I can for him. It is a special experience.

This year is special because it is my babies' first Christmas, but it is also special because of a good friend of mine. She is a mother of three also. Her children are only a few years older than my clan. She was very helpful with Jonathan during my pregnancy with the babies. Just a few weeks ago, she received the devastating news that she has cancer. As a result, I have been spending a great deal of time praying for her and her family while I thank the Lord for my own health and family. God has a purpose in all things, and it is always for good. If you would like to drop her an encouraging word, her name is Kerri and her blog is testament to the Lord's provision and grace.

Please count your blessings as you thank the Lord for all the wonderful things He has given you this special season.

Also, please stop over Musings of a Writer for news of how the return to writing is coming.

That picture of your kids is adorable. The twins are just DARLING! What cuties!

Thanks for your encouragement on my blog the other day. I really appreciate your prayers and support... it's strange walking through this life sometimes, all the different struggles and challenges that come up. It's wonderful, but hard.

I'm sorry about your friend Kerri. We'll be praying for her and her family!
