Where Do I Begin??

Well friends, today is my first official day as a stay at home wife and mom. Truth be told, I don't even know where to begin. Today I just decided to take the day off. I am at my parents something I haven't done since Christmas, and today I am going to hang out with my dad and the girls. We are going to do some school shopping with pa-pa, and later on I am going to take him to the doctor, again something I have never had the chance to do. Tommorrow I can tackle the house chores, and menus, and other ripping and running, but for today I will just enjoy life at a slow pace, again something I haven't done in a while!!

My pastor preached last night about remaining in the firey tests so that God can perfect us. It is a good thing not to be removed so quickly from some of our hottest battles. Being unemployed naturally can only help me perfect my home, train up my children, and nurture my husband and while it can be a test not to worry about the second income, and how things will be paid, I can certianly welcome the thought of this chance to increase my faith and expunge myself of all hidden doubts and fears. I don't know if God will lead me to return back to the workforce, or if he will bless my husband with an increase careerwise, I do know that Romans 8:28 has become my hiding place in the word. Thank you again for your thoughts and prayers and I am off to spend some well deserved time with two little girls who I haven't seen for most of the summer!!! Be Blessed and Stay Encouraged!
