No. I'm not dead:)

As you may have noticed, I haven't blogged much lately. No reason in particular other than I have just felt 'quiet' lately. A lot has gone on in my life over the past month and even though I would like to share it, I don't feel as though I am ready. However, I do miss blogging very much. So, I will attempt to blog about every day happenings this month just so I can stay connected.
****************************************************

ACORN performed during our church services last week and they were incredible. They really led the congregation in Worship and didn't just 'perform'. It truly brought tears to my eyes. Our Worship director, Julie, liked them so much that she invited them to play every month that has a 5th Sunday. See, 5th Sundays are typically known as 'Hymn Sundays'. Julie so loved the contrast between the older hymns and the youth music that she would like it to become a regular 'gig':) They will play again in November. I will definitely try to have video! I totally forgot last time. I was so nervous for them!!!!
***************************************************

Some of you have asked about my last post 'Aftermath'. Some of my friends have asked me where it came from. Why did I write it? Was there something going on? There is more to that post and I'm working on sharing it. I am still waiting for God to reveal some things to me. As soon as I can piece it all together I will post about it. Just know that I, too, am anxious to know what it was about:)
**************************************************

My youngest daughter became a 'woman' yesterday. Ahem. I am hoping that you ladies will know what I am talking about because if I actually write about it she will disown me I promise you! I can't believe it. She is my baby and the time has gone by so fast. I sat and watched her sleep last night and wondered where the years have gone. Another chapter in her life. It makes me sad and joyful at the same time.
**************************************************

I will post a less random post tomorrow.

Hopefully;)

YOu will have, years from now some of those wonderful young people thank you with their hearts and through their lives. God bless you and your steadfastness with them, and you serve a wonderful God.

Have been wondering what has kept you busy lately, but then again...I have felt "quiet" also...not having much to say to the blog. We are leaving on our vacation this morning, and I'm leaving my computer behind...so I'll check back with you next week and see what you have been sharing. I'll be thinking of you now and then, and when I do, I will faithfully speak your name to our Father!! love you, Heather!
