I have posted several blog posts in my head….they just don’t make it from my head to the computer without help!  I have also made sure I am writing in my “real” journal before personal blogging.

A year has passed since my last writing on this blog. So many changes -always.

For the last two years in May I have had life changing phone calls.  I just may not answer the phone this May!

Even with those life altering phone calls, I wouldn’t change it.  God is always at work and even through these changes, He is growing me.

In the valleys, there has been much joy.

I am blogging weekly for work. Building the website, etc is taking all my computer time up and then some.  You can check it out here: Bear Paw Creek’s Blog

After moving I feel like I’m finally getting back to a schedule and rhythm that works. Gotten back to being intentional with special times with the kids and a few other things that are important to me.

I have much more on my list I want to add on, and am working towards that goal.  I have been reminded that being intentional with my time is important or I will be missing out on so many opportunities.  Our oldest is 15 and youngest just turned 1. It goes quickly!



Psalm 30

I will exalt you, Lord,

   for you lifted me out of the depths
    and did not let my enemies gloat over me.
Lord my God, I called to you for help,
    and you healed me.
You, Lord, brought me up from the realm of the dead;
    you spared me from going down to the pit.
Sing the praises of the Lord, you his faithful people;
    praise his holy name.
For his anger lasts only a moment,
    but his favor lasts a lifetime;
weeping may stay for the night,
    but rejoicing comes in the morning.
When I felt secure, I said,
    “I will never be shaken.”
Lord, when you favored me,
    you made my royal mountain[c] stand firm;
but when you hid your face,
    I was dismayed.
To you, Lord, I called;
    to the Lord I cried for mercy:
“What is gained if I am silenced,
    if I go down to the pit?
Will the dust praise you?
    Will it proclaim your faithfulness?
10 Hear, Lord, and be merciful to me;
    Lord, be my help.”


11 You turned my wailing into dancing;
    you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy,
12 that my heart may sing your praises and not be silent.
    Lord my God, I will praise you forever.
