Jones Family Circus, long time no see.....

It has been a while since I have blogged.  Life and facebook have cut into my time.  It is amazing to me how things change in life.  It is so easy to wake up and realize that you have taken the routine for granted.  This has been the most surreal year.  

First, Matthew left for MC and really hasn't been home because of football games, etc.  For years we were together with no thought at all of things ever being different, and then he left.  I am so happy that he is having a great time at school, but it is still strange with him not being home.  We miss his face.  It will be so great to see him Tuesday.   

We were in a transition with jobs, churches, etc. and then God led us to a wonderful group of people at Taylor BC.  It has been such a blessing to work with the youth and see our old friends. 

This school year has been so much better than last year, but still so tough.  I know God has put me there for a reason, but it is so hard for my personality to be tough enough to be a strong teacher.  Even with the best intentions, it is still not good enough.  If anyone ever needed Thanksgiving break, it was me, now.  So very frustrating.  I get overwhelmed and then disappoint myself when I lose my temper and don't behave like I want to. 

So, today is the first day of Thanksgiving holidays.  I am going to soak up every bit of  this break.  2010 is about over.  I know God has a plan for our family for Matt finding a full-time job and us settling down.  I am going to remember my trust in Him as we go through this time.  He is going to take care of us.  

I guess I need to remember that all things do work together for good for those who love God and are called according to His purpose.  That is such a comforting thing.  Even in our failures, He loves us completely and no less.  Thank goodness we can't earn His love.  We already have it. 

Now Matt is in here playing jazz guitar Christmas music. Ahhhh..................
Great end to the evening.  Take care, everybody.  I pray that you will know that comfort of knowing God and walking with Him. 

Have a great Thanksgiving!!
