No, readers, I have not forgotten about you!!
Hello, all! :)
I just returned last Monday (June 1st) from a wonderful trip visiting family. I left on May 9th, and so was gone for a little over 3 weeks. It was my intention to prepare some posts prior to leaving so that they could be scheduled to be published while I was gone, but, as you can see, I was unable to do so. The time leading up to my trip was filled with studying for tests, packing, etc. It was a busier time than I thought it would be, so time for blogging was nonexistent!
I missed you all, and I greatly missed writing for this blog! My trip, though, was wonderful. I went to Indiana to visit my great-grandparents, great-uncle and various other family members and then traveled down to Arkansas to visit my grandmother. We all had a wonderful time, and the Lord taught me so much during this trip-some of which I hope to be sharing with you soon! I'm so thankful the Lord allowed me to have this time with my family. It was so special. Let me encourage you all to never ever take a moment with your family(especially those members who are getting up in years) for granted! The Lord, through this trip, showed me yet again just how short life is, and the fact that I don't know how much longer I have with my grandparents. Life is so precious and musn't be taken for granted. Rather, live every moment of every day to the fullest for His glory!!
Last week was very busy as we tried to get back into the swing of things after our vacation, and so far, this week is no different! I'm currently making a lot of tea cozies for a sale our local homeschool group is putting on this weekend. I'm greatly looking forward to it, but preparation for it is keeping me rather busy!
I must go now, but pray that all is well with each one of you! God bless you richly this week!
