Pieces of Me

Life

I've been a pretty bad blogger as of late.  I just haven't had time to do much of anything.  When I do sit down and scrap, I whip out several layouts and then don't do anything for several days. 

Sometimes I feel like my world is crumbling around me.  It's hard to move forward when the unknown is just hanging there in your face.  But then, I look at my children and realize that the life I've been given here should be focusing on them.  Teaching them all about the love that our Lord has for them.  Teaching them about Jesus and spending time with them showing His love. 

That being said, the things in my life right now do not compare to the many around me.  My family and school family has been praying for the JD Hartman and his family since his accident.  Little Clare attends our preschool.  I can only read about and imagine the trials this family has been going through and yet, they have not lost their faith.

And then to learn that one of my very first students.  One of the beautiful children that I student taught at Zion life was taken from us tragically through an accident.  The pain Lisa and her family are going through does not even compare to my sadness.  Lindsay was a beautiful young woman.  She had just passed the first part of her CPA Exam.  Celebration was in order.  Many of the things I remember about Lindsay was her sweet disposition, her compassion, and her smile.  I also remember her love for dance.  And now, she is indeed "dancing with the angels."

So even though there are times when I fall into a sadness because of life around me - my health, my Grammie, my PapPap, and Stephen's health - there are reminders constantly around me of His love.
