This blog is simply the story about my little life
with my sweet family that the Lord has blessed me with
and the day in, day out things that we do.
It basically is my online diary/photo album of our life.
I'm glad you're here!

There is hope in the Lord!

I have not felt like blogging for the last couple of months, I've kind of lost my creative spark and my passion for it. I actually turned it off for awhile and just this week felt like writing again, which I'm happy about. I don't like vague posts, but unfortunately in respect to others in my life, today I must be vague.

I have been through one of the biggest heartaches of my entire life for the past 6 months (it does not have to do with the passing of my dear sweet mother-in-law or my marriage). My heart is broken. I KNOW that God hears my voice. I know He hears my cries and He wipes my tears. I know that He is going to answer. I AM THANKING HIM FOR ANSWERING. Even though the situation has gone from sad to bad to worse, I KNOW that GOD HAS A PLAN and that GOD IS WORKING! Someday I will be able to tell a VICTORIOUS TESTIMONY about this valley I have been in. For now, I must GIVE IT ALL TO GOD and go about my day.

Here are a few scriptures that have encouraged me during this sad time.

"Now I will relieve your shoulder of it's burden; I will free your hands from their heavy tasks. You cried to me in trouble and I saved you; I answered out of a thundercloud." Psalm 81:6-7

"Jesus said to him, "All things are possible to him that believes." Mark 9:23

"Pray without ceasing" I Thessalonians 5:17

"Call upon me and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things for which you know not." Jeremiah 33:3

"He will be very gracious to you at the voice of your cry; when He hears it, He will answer you." Isaiah 30:19

"I took my troubles to the Lord; I cried out to Him and He answered my prayer." Psalm 120:1

If you feel so led, please pray for a miracle in our family. Thank you so very much.

May the Lord richly bless you today.

Hugs, Sharon

Oh Sharon,
My heart aches that you're in such pain. I had a feeling that something was wrong ~ felt it in my gut. Or a woman's intuition. Makes me sad that you're in such sorrow. You can count on my prayers. Thank you for letting us know. Hope you feel my long distance {{{HUGS}}} from across the country.

Sharon, I am glad to see you back in the blogging world. Over the years, I have gotten to know you and your family through your blog. I have loved how open and honest you have been with your 'extended family' concerning child raising, empty nest, parents and parenting, values and of course, your faith.
When you stopped blogging, I felt something was seriously wrong and began praying for your family and you. Yes, for that miracle, but more than that, for the vision to see that miracle.
I will continue to pray for your family and have asked the prayer warriors in my life to pray.
God is good!

I was sooo relieved to see your post in my e-mail today! I was frantic because I thought I was blocked or some thing like that. I put it in the lords hands too. It will come when it's time. And there you were today! I have been thinking of you and your family, worrying since Alice passed. Eager to hear how your life has been. I'm sorry you are having this horrible time of worry and I will pray for you as so many are now.Sincerely Kathie

Hello Sharon,
I haven't been on forever, and, just went on to see a post from YOU !!! I have always enjoyed reading your blog... You are truly an inspiration, and speak from your heart. I love that you are so honest, and always share the trials and tribulations that you are going through. I always say no ones life is perfect, and, as Christian women to so outwardly share, our sorrows, broken hearts, and imperfect lives, is so important, and, to ask to be lifted in prayer. Just know that you have so many that are doing so.I am so sorry that you are going through this very tough time, BUT, am so happy and relieved that you know who to go to for strength, comfort, and MOST of all PEACE !!!
Don't go away forever, keep us posted, and hopefully we will be reading a PRAISE post from you real soon. You are a doll, and I just love all the fun and meaningful stories you share ..... REAL ....
Love to you in this trying time my friend ~~Tanza~~
Blessings, love and peace to you and all of yours xo

Sharon, I have read your blog for years and was sad when it was gone for a time. I always enjoy your posts and am very glad to see that you have brought it back. I am so sorry to hear of your struggles. I loved that you said that you are already thanking God for answering your prayer. Thankfulness is such an important part of weathering life's storms! I will most definitely pray for you that God will fill you with His Peace that goes beyond our understanding during this difficult time and that you will get your miracle. Romans 8:28

Blessings...<>< Mary Anne in Kentucky

Dear Sharon,
I am so happy to see you writing again. I have read your blog for years and feel like I know your family to some degree. Your blog has been such an inspiration to me many times through out the years. You are always so honest and real and I so appreciate that. I am praying for you and all involved. I have found myself many times on the threshing floor, not sure how I got there or what to do. I have found this to be true in my life where ever I am the threshing floor or the mountain top I will praise him. When I am on the mountain top I will praise him for what I can see and what he has done, and when I am on the threshing floor I will praise him for the harvest I can not yet see ahead. God is Good ALL THE TIME. God redeems the hurt. Prayers and hugs to you.

So glad to see a post from you. I have read your blog for many years - mainly because I too have only sons and have been married to my high school sweetheart for 34 years. Praying for you and your family. Have faith and hope - everything will be ok.
Hugs to you !

Of course I will pray dear friend. You prayed for me years ago when I was going through a traumatic event in our family. I am more than happy to now do the same for you. Feel free to message me on FB any time!

Sharon, I have been holding you in prayer, sensing that you were having
tough times. I love reading your blog, you are so encouraging, even in the
tough times. I don't have the gift of writing that you do, but I wanted to
encourage you. My family has had (and are still going through) some really
dark days. I am so thankful that I know in my heart of hearts that God is
holding me. And you know He is holding you too.
