Wow, it seems like forever

Since I've posted another blog!!!!!! I truly doubt I have many readers who sit on the edge of their seats just WAITING for me to blog about my interesting life!

Anywho.....

I have been quite busy lately.
Last weekend, we pulled off a grand surprise party for my inlaws birthdays (their 60th) and we actually did surprise them! Which according to many around here that is a feat!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was so much fun. A TON of work, and even more $$$$$$$$$, but I so enjoy doing things like that! And it makes it great when it is appreciated!!!!

Also, I started with some of my lovely friends from South FLorida, a Bible study called "Lies Women Believe and the Truth that Sets Them Free". It is totally AWESOME. There are so many things I am learning. The most radical thing I have learned in just the first 3 chapters is that ~ "we will ALWAYS have unfulfilled longings this side of heaven." I seriously had never heard that taught before by any teacher or preacher in any church. If I had I truly don't recognize it. This truth just totally makes me look back on my life and realize that when I had longings throughoutmy life, I kept looking for ways to fulfill those needs and I realize that there were just some things that couldn't be filled. I always begged God to show me how to "fix" whatever problems it was, but I never fully turned to HIM and begged HIM to BE the fulfillment of that need. I have realized that there will always be a void in some form or another in my life and I have to ........."train" myself to look to God to fill those voids, and become content and comfortable with those voids. And make sure that I turn to HIM to fulfill the deepest needs of my heart.

Anyways, I just HAD to share that with someone! I shared on my fb page, but it was so radical that I can't wait to just tell people about it!!!!!

Hey Tara-thx for always leaving such encouraging comments on my blog. They are always a blessing to me. I, too, enjoy reading your blog. I look forward to your posts! This post reminded me of a verse I read yesterday in Proverbs: 13:19 A longing fulfilled is sweet to the soul...
Thank goodness, God can fulfill those longings so much more fully than the world can!
