Keeping Up With The Jones

Well, I have always heard that we should not try to keep up with the Jones’s, but in this case, I have given in! Blogging seems to be the way to go these days, so here I am! I am looking forward to sharing my life with my friends and family and all those who visit my blog from around the country through their involvement with Proverbs 31. It is a blessing and an honor to be able to communicate with you, and I hope that many of you will take time to read my entries and post your comments and feedback.

Being a mother of an active eight year old son, and having two daughters in middle school, there is never a dull moment in our household. Not a day goes by that we don’t have a sports practice to go, or several practices to juggle, cramming in dinner before we have to leave, nursing minor injuries when we get home, and facing a little dose of sibling rivalry over who the gets the first shower, although no one wants to be the first one ready for bed. All this after long days at school, problems with boys, issues with friends, who said what to who and when and why, homework, and 423 text messages. Isn’t life fun!

God has blessed me immeasurably with a wonderful husband and three beautiful healthy children, so to be perfectly honest, I treasure each one of the things I mentioned above. Life is full of seasons, and I am thoroughly enjoying this busy but rewarding season in my life of being a wife, mom, and servant of Christ.

Until tomorrow……..

    I love your blog!!!! The picture draws me in….oh take me away!!!!

    I added you to my page…actually you were already there…I’m not sure how, but you were:) Cool I think.

    My blog is just a freebie, but I think it’s time for an upgrade. All of these other extremely cool blogs are putting me to shame!

    Welcome to the wonderful world of blogging!
