Change

Things look a little different around here. I decided it was time to give this blog a makeover.
It is more personal now, a little more me.
It seems like this blog is not the only change that is happening around here.
One thing going on is changing our house around, an easy change but one that holds meaning for me.

The reason we are changing the house around is to give my oldest child a little space of her own. She will be ten next month and I am watching a tremendous change take place in her. She can be my sweet little girl, playing with her brothers and sisters, still getting into her dress up box. Then there are times where she acts older, times when I can glimpse a different type of maturity in her.

This change is bitter sweet. Soon to come are the teenage years, I hope she will carry a little bit of her child like good nature into the years to come. I will miss the little girl but I look forward to knowing her as a young lady and a teenager.

Then there is the change of my children’s education, homeschooling is only weeks away. I am excited and nervous. Really I can’t wait to get started.

Another thing happening is a change within me. If you read this blog you may have noticed that I have written a couple of posts about women and their role that God has set for us. I have been reading articles, reading books, and talking with intelligent and faithful women about this subject. I would like to have a better understanding of the role women play in the Catholic faith and in society. With that understanding I am hoping to have a different outlook, become comfortable with myself and embrace all the changes happening around me.

Change is the essence of life. Be willing to surrender what you are for what you could become.”

I like your new look. It is a lot like me. Simple yet elegant. Not all cluttery. Some blogs there just is too much stuff on them.

Sounds like your heart is being touched. There are so many good books out there. Read and pray. Good for the soul!

God Bless you on your journey.
