I wanted to check in and let you all know that I am doing okay.  I have had my good days and my bad but am very thankful for the good.  I am still experiencing pain and am anxious for my back injection next week! 

I did go to my prayer meeting last week for the first time in over a year! It was so wonderful to be in prayer for our church with the precious ladies in our group.  It's a small group, but a powerful, prayer-filled, Scripture filled group.  Such a blessing to be able to go! My goal is to go to the ministries I'm involved in whenever I can this year.  I'm hoping that it's more often than not.

Did you watch the Broncos/Steelers game on Sunday?  It was a great game with an amazing end! It's so nice to have an athlete that our children can look up to.  Tim Tebow is such a wonderful man of God and I truly believe that his testimony is bringing so many to Jesus.  God bless him!

I've been working on my Bible study, reading the Word of God, writing and crocheting.  I haven't had a lot of energy the past week as I'm still battling a bladder infection (bleah) but it's been a great time of quiet reflection of quiet moments.

My boys went to visit a friend out of town over the weekend and our house was so quiet.  This Mama didn't like it too much.  lol  I'm so blessed to have my boys still living here at home and they add so much to our lives and I missed them.  They had a great time, though, and I'm so glad they were able to go and visit their friend and have a good time for a few days.  They will be having to hit the books in about a week and a half and getting away was a nice time for them just before school starts again. 

Speaking of school, my oldest son has been asked to be in the honors program at his college.  He will be traveling, be involved in community affairs and so forth.  What an honor for him and I'm very proud of him.  I don't doubt that my youngest will also be asked into this program as his grade point is also high.  They have to continue to keep the grade point up before they are asked into the program and as this was my youngest son's first full semester, it will probably be at least another semester before he's asked.  To me it just proves again that homeschooling really does work and is the best foundation for our children. 

God bless you - Julie


  1. I am glad to hear you are having some good days mixed in with the unfortunate bad ones. Yay that you got to go to the meeting! I will pray that you can go to more and more. And double yay that your sons are doing so well in college. Gives this homeschool momma a bit of hope!

  2. We walked in on the last 28 seconds of the game, sat down for overtime and dinner, said grace and the game was over! Crazy!


Please leave me a message! I love hearing what you have to say and look forward to your comments.
