So many changes........

I had debated about talking about the recent happenings in my family but I feel like can share some things In hopes to heal and maybe help someone else. Our lives have become ever so complicated to the point that Terry and I have gone our separate ways and even though I did not make the choice it does hurt and the kids hurt even more. I don't understand but even more I feel like God must have something in the works, new lessons, adventures, a new refined heart. I am being ever so careful not to give personal details in the reasons why and i don't ever want to further scars or cause hurt or make accusations in this format because it would dishonoring to God and everyone involved and completely inappropriate. I do however want to be an encouragement to others and share the lessons and hopes that are found as I go through this new chapter in life with my beautiful family.

I heard this on the radio the other day and found it to be quite encouraging especially in late of my life as it now and will be in the future..........

The pencil Maker taught the pencil 5 important lessons:
1. Everything you do will always leave a mark
2. But you can always correct the mistakes you make
3. What is important is what is inside you
4. In life you will undergo painful sharpening which will make you a better pencil
5. To be the best pencil, you must allow yourself to be held and guided by the Hand that holds you.
