Okay, maybe not so popular demand, but people have been asking when I'm going to blog again! I know it's been a month since I've blogged anything, but things have been CRAZY around here lately. I'll just give you a run down of what we've been up to lately.
Aaron spoke at a parenting conference two weeks ago. He had four messages to preach there, so he'd been working like a wild man trying to get those done. That led to my involuntary sabbatical from blogging. Any time I had a minute to type up a post, he would be using the computer, and I couldn't very well say "stop preparing your sermons so I can blog something!" I was also speaking to the ladies in two breakout sessions, so I felt a little guilty spending time on the computer when I had two talks to prepare. I still crammed it all in at the last minute anyway! The conference went very well, there was great feedback from those who attended, and Aaron did a great job.
It was very obvious to Aaron and myself that while we were preparing for this parenting conference, Satan was tempting us in that very area of our lives. Our kids were going crazy, and giving us ample opportunity to "practice what we preach." :) So, now it's time to slow down a little bit and get back into normal life again.
In the midst of all this, I have had several doctor appointments to go to, which is no small feat, when you have four small kids to arrange for. Thankfully, Aaron's job is flexible enough that he was able to be here for most of them. I have just not been feeling well, and I've been having a lot of dizziness and light headedness for about four months, so I finally conceded to going to the doctor. Four doctor visits, an MRI, and a lot of $ later, we still don't know what's going on. But a huge praise is that the MRI was normal. I was starting to think that something was seriously wrong after seeing my Dr. and talking with nurses, and I'm normally not one to go to the extreme on stuff like that. Now we're thinking it could be something like blood volume and/or pressure problems or maybe just hormones or fatigue. I would really appreciate you're prayers through all this. It has been very discouraging to me at times. To not feel well, when you have so much to do can seem a bit overwhelming.
Through all of that, and starting school and awana, we still had time to squeeze in a family picture. I'll leave you with a couple. Thanks for not giving up on my blog!!
(four hours later) Okay...maybe I won't put up some pictures! Blogger isn't letting me upload any right now. I'll try again tomorrow.
I am the wife of one wonderful husband and the mom of four great kids, ages 10, 7, 5, and 4.
"In Due Season" seems to accurately describe the last ten years for me. They have been pretty much consumed with pregnancy and child-rearing. Yet, I'm encouraged. With four children and a busy husband- I AM WEARY!! BUT... I'm gently reminded by God's Word not to loose heart in doing good, in due season I will reap. Read More.
about my photos
I am open for business!! I am a stay at home mom and wife by trade and a wanna-be photographer by default! I love taking pictures of my family and this has evolved into a little bit of a business. I enjoy taking all kinds of pictures, not just children, even though that is what you will mostly see on my blog. Family portraits, engagements, bridals, sports teams, birthday parties, small weddings, really anything you need a picture for! Interesting locations and outside, natural lighting, are my favorite! I love finding new places in the Little Rock area to do photo shoots. So, if you have a favorite spot where you'd love to have your family portrait taken, I would be glad to go there. I can also suggest some places locally as well.
