A Change of Seasons...

I can't believe we are already in the middle of March! 
Two days before Spring?! I can't wait…

My favorite season is Fall for sure because let's face it…it's because of FOOTBALL!!!
My daddy raised me right! Every weekend was football and good food! :o) Goooo Dawgs!!!
I'm always so excited for Fall to come around and extremely sad when it's over…i love all the smells, the food, the football parties, etc.  

When I look back over the last 9-10 months I'm so amazed at where the Lord has brought me.  He has healed my heart in ways I never thought possible.  I've learned so much about myself.  I feel like for the first time in years…i've finally found myself.  Over the last few months,  I have been happier than I ever remember, laughed more than ever, and truly experienced the peace and joy of the Lord.

It's a change of a season.

I honestly feel like these past 9 months have been a 'birthing' process…I don't know exactly what 'that' is…but, Jesus works all things together for His good!!! 
I'm looking forward to the next chapter in our lives.

I see the light at the end of this very long tunnel and I'm ready to put this 'season' behind me.  I'm grateful for the lessons learned.  It's always hard when you are walking through the fire…but, its a refining process and what the Lord does during that time is amazing. I'm grateful. 

I'm ready for Spring. I'm ready for all the Lord has for me and the boys.

***i changed the name of this blog to #BeautyFromAshes!

this verse has been life changing for me:

 and provide for those who grieve in Zion—
to bestow on them a crown of beauty
    instead of ashes,
the oil of joy
    instead of mourning,
and a garment of praise
    instead of a spirit of despair.
They will be called oaks of righteousness,
    a planting of the Lord
    for the display of his splendor.

{isa 61:3)

Where is God?

Ive had several people in passing ask me, "where do I think God is/was in my situation?"

Let me start off by saying...God didn't cause this. God didn't create this. 
We were all born into a world where SIN exists. Its evil. Sins wrecks everything! Everything. 

So...Where was/is God? 

He's always been here with me. He hasn't gone anywhere.
He has given me a PEACE that passes all of my understanding...it's baffling to me. The joy and peace that I have experienced these past 7 months or so. It can only be from the Lord. We all have choices to make. We all make good choices and bad choices but, the are OUR choices. I'm choosing to see what lessons the Lord would have me learn through my experiences and not dwell on what happened to me and my boys.  I can choose to waller in self-pity but, that's not who I am or who I want to be. I'm a glass half full kinda girl :)  I choose to forgive and move on. Hear me when I say...do I think I could have done things different in my marriage? absolutely!  We are all human and all make mistakes. Thats the beauty of the cross and Jesus' love for us. He welcomes us with open arms!  

I'm waving the 'white flag' and surrendering all to Him. His LOVE has won! He made a way for PEACE! He took our rightful place!! 

I'm looking forward to the next chapter of our life.  I'm hopeful for an amazing life to come for me and the boys! 

If  you are in the middle of a life crisis...just know that the Lord is here.
All you need to do is press in to Him!!
