Here in Cali they like to call the month of August, Fogust!! I guess you can probably figure out why in the mornings you will see the fog creeping up the valley and resting over top of the city.
And as I love to say at the beginning of every month, where did the last month go??
Well some of it I spent working on my riding and getting used to my new horse. The kids were back and forth to different summer church camps. Chores, Chores and more Chores.
And then the rest of it I spent being grumpy and sulky... And you thought I was a grownup!!
You know sometimes I don't always respond how I want to when life gets difficult.
I really let the stress of my husbands unemployment get to me. And it really had me discouraged, and frustrated. I kind of forget that God is really in control. And that no amount of worry or sulking or discouragement would change not an ounce of anything going on. And God was so gracious to me, He just blessed my discouraged heart all month long. I had a friend take me out for coffee, another friend join me for lunch. My Dad purchased a new laptop for me to replace my macbook that broke. We had to take our truck in for troubleshooting and they did it for free. My Mom left me sweet comments on Facebook. The church paid for the boys to go to camp. I mean really so many more blessings how in the world could I possibly walk around grumpy anymore by the end of the month I was looking up at God feeling rather embarrassed about the whole sulking thing.
Thankfully and I truly mean that Thankfully I am beginning Fogust with a very content and thankful heart, and I am remembering that no matter how scary and uncertain life gets God is right here with me.
Isn't glorious to know that no matter how unjust something may be, even when it seems to have come from Satan himself, by the time it reaches us it is God's will for us and will ultimately work for our good ~author unkown
and just to catch you up since I have been MIA here are some snapshots from life around here...
Wishing you a Wonderful Fogust!!
and we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him ~Romans 8:28
