okay, I'm back

As my last post said, I have been away for a while. This was not a planned break from blogging, but it did give me a chance to get some things in order throughout my day and get back on some sort of "schedule" with the kids. A lot has happened since Jan. On Feb. 2 we had an opportunity to help someone in a capacity that we have never done before. We showed God's love and provided as best we could to a young lady who had come to the church for help. In the end (around the end of March) a "tough love" decision had to be made and she chose to go back out on her own. We continue to pray for her and ask that you, too, please pray for K. She has a long road ahead of her and we can only hope that for the brief time that our lives were intertwined we were able to give her a glimpse of what life with God is all about.
Two weeks after K entered our lives, we found out that, by God's plan, we were going to be adding to our family. Baby #3 is due Oct. 17 and we are thrilled, yet scared and excited all at the same time. This was not in our original plan for this year, but God has an amazing ability to do whatever it takes to make us focus on Him. And believe me, I am beginning to focus more and more on Him, because only with His strength and power will we be able to parent 3 children under 6 (Kyler will turn 5 two weeks after my due date)!
I think that pretty much gets you caught up on the big stuff. R began a new job in mid-February and business is picking way up...even in the mortgage industry. Praise God for that! I continue to work in the evenings at Walmart 4 days a week. I love it, but it is getting harder and harder with the extra exhaustion from the pregnancy and the earlier mornings with the kids (they wake up earlier in the spring and summer months b/c of the sun!).
And lastly, I would love some feedback. I would love to find a way for this blog to earn a little cash on the side, but not sure how. I don't really have a "theme" that I write about except whatever is on my mind or happening in our family. If you have any ideas, they would be greatly appreciated.

Have a wonderfully blessed day.

I don't know if BlogHer is accepting new applications, but they are the company I use for my ads. They pay much better than Google Ads. Actually, they pay, Google doesn't really. I've been really impressed with their service and they even offer product reviews from time to time. Hey, I did get $300 in clothing from JCPenney for writing a review. Awesome.
