Time away....

Thanks to some wonderful friends, we've been away for the past 10 days. It could have been 2 weeks, but we had to get back a little sooner.
The time away was precious time as a family filled with daily experiences like these...
And wonderful nightly times in God's Word and much time spent in prayer..
The past 3 months have definitely been the hardest our family has ever faced. It has also honestly been the sweetest times as well. I've seen the benefit of stepping away from the computer and spending more time face to face with friends. Since January 3rd I still don't buy Brian lunch groceries as his schedule fills up, quickly, with friends that want to talk. I've cherished the precious time with friends as well. There just aren't adequate words for how much people have carried us during this time.

Well.....we traveled home today and still went to Tae Kwon Do and eased back into it with only 2 hours. I know....crazy.

The fact that my husband blogged this week has prompted my own post. I'd like to just end with a post he made and maybe I'll come back on here to post more pictures at some point.

We have been praying for your family ever since we heard the news of the layoff. We so understand where you are in your journey and if we could make it easier we would. So glad to hear that you had a wonderful time at the beach. Miss you!

I miss you!!! Trying to be sensitive about the whole situation, but I'd sure love to see you. I've been praying for Brian to quickly find something here, & that God would provide for your every need while you are "in the waiting room". I'm so glad you had a good time at the beach!

I've been praying for all of you so much. May the Lord continue to hold you in quiet while the wind is shrill. I love you, my friend.

I wish you could have met her. You would have loved her too. I don't even try to be as driven as she was, I just have to be me, but she was such an inspiration, none the less.
