My Family

Tonight, I feel peace.
Although my life has been more chaotic this week than most weeks, I feel more peace and serenity than I have in a long time.

It's not the circumstances of my life.
In just this past week, we finally got a signed contract on our new house in AZ, I fulfilled my calling (RSP) to the best of my ability, one of my best friends (Susan) passed away, and I withdrew my children from our wonderful schools.
Add to that a mild stomach flu that is going the rounds through our family, and it should be a week when I've created at least a couple of bald spots on my head from pulling my hair out.

However, along with the extra responsibility my calling has added, I have also received a measure of clarity and understanding of God's awareness of each of us.
He knows us.He knows our names, our fears, our struggles, and He desires to bless us.
We just need to turn to Him...daily, hourly, each minute if needed, and He will help carry the burdens we have been given.
How I love my Savior, and our Heavenly Father.
They carry me when the burdens are full and heavy...and they truly make the burdens light.
They give peace.
What more do we need?

It's Official!

(As if I haven't thrown enough surprises your way lately!)

Pat resigned from his job today here in New Mexico.
As of January 5th, he will be working for another mine in Arizona.
We'll be moving to Queen Creek the last week of 2008 or the first week of 2009.
We're still working out final details.
Sharing is half of the fun.

Merry Christmas!
