Tribulation And Hope

We also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation
produces perseverance; and perseverance, character;
and character, hope; Now hope does not disappoint,
because the love of God has been poured out in
our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.
Romans 5:3-5 NKJV

I know that I have not been blogging lately. I did not give up on my blog. I have just been really busy. Our family has been going threw a lot lately, but, instead of boring you with all the details about what a hard time we have been having, let me instead tell you of all the wonderful things that the Lord has been doing in our lives.
• We are all healthy and thriving. Our Baby Girl just celebrated her 2nd birthday. We are so blessed to have her. I cannot even begin to think about what life would be like without her. We praise the Lord for gifting us with children and we ask that you join our family in praying for ongoing guidance on how to best raised these kids.
• Praise the Lord, we are now completely credit card debt free. After a really hard financial year this past year, it feels good to finally be back on the road to saving and growing our money.
• While we are on the topic of finances I just want to share with you how faithful God is. He really does answer prayers and he is always on time. My husband just got an unexpected promotion at work; we will soon be re-doing our family budget.

We are all doing great. I have a lot of catching up to do as far as blogging goes so please be patient with me. I have some gardening updates to post as well as some co-op news. We also have an upcoming birthday party for Baby Girl, and some recipe’s to post. Until next time….

Our extended family has experienced lots of tribulation lately, it's been hard to deal with, but you are right, let's keep praise on our lips. I'll keep your family in my prayers.
