A Time to Be Silent

So hey everybody... welcome back.  Sorry for the unplanned hiatus that has occurred here.  I will simply say that there is a time to speak and a time to silence  as mentioned in Ecclesiastes 3:7b.

I try very much to stay true to what God lays on my heart.  I believe in the convicting power of the Holy Spirit to call us out on our sins.  What I like to share with you is the journey I am on in putting those sins to death.  However, there are times, when I write a blog and don't share it, which has happened a few times within the last couple of months.  And honestly it's because I believe that sometimes my words may be taken in a judging way, calling out someone in their sin, when this is not the intention or the place for that.

Do I want people to be challenged and spurred on to deeper faith through the words I share? Absolutely! But I want it to be clear that the Holy Spirit is the one stepping on those hurting toes through those words and not me.  So, sometimes I don't share my posts...

Anyway, enough of that- here is a catch up for you all because now is the time to SPEAK!! ;-)
We have had some wonderful family time this summer, in South Carolina with TJ's family and here at home with my family and Sister, Brother-in-law and nephew who came in for a visit.

Our Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Family after my nephew's themed
sixth birthday party!  My son just wants to go home with him, hence the concerned face.

Also, exciting things are on the horizon- in September we are beginning an Awana ministry at our church and I am assistant commander.  That has been fun and I am thrilled that we will be offering this.

And this week I managed to finish three different books! Let me clarify that by saying that two were already 3/4 of the way completed and two of the three were audio books. (which I am a HUGE fan of during my loooong commute!)  Be on the look out Monday for my Review of one of the books, Dancing Through Life: Steps of Courage and Conviction by Candace Cameron Bure.

Another new exciting happening is that I am starting a new job on Monday!  I am still within the same agency, just in a different unit.  I'm super excited about this and want to share more about that in a separate post because this rambling one has already gone on for far too long!
