This is a year of change in our family.  I am so excited about all of the things that are happening.  My son Michael turned 18 in April, and in a few short days he will be graduating from High School.  This in and of it self is such an accomplishment.  School was not his best subject.  If you get my drift here.  I always had troubles getting him to do his school work.  If it was homework, he would do it at home, no problem, be he wouldn't bring school work home and finish it if he didn't finish it at school.  I'm still trying to teach him to be a self starter at tasks, and things that need to be done, other than playing video games on the computer.

I'm looking forward to Michael finding a job, and getting started on his adult life.  I want him to have a good start, and to be respected by others.  He just took his last and only final today, and he has the rest of his life ahead of him to be the man of God that I know that God is making him to be.  I'm looking forward to seeing where he is in 5 years, maybe even 10.

My oldest son is moved out, and is starting out on a life independent of mom and dad.  He will be moving into his first apartment with his fiance in a few short weeks.  I about a year from now he will be walking down the isle to get married.  It's hard to believe that the son I used to hold in my arms, and rock to sleep every night will be getting married.

I am so proud of him, and what he has accomplished.  He has a wonderful job working at Alaska USA Credit Union.  He is learning the ins and outs of banking, and how to do what a teller at this credit union does.  He still has a lot to learn but has come a long way.  I am so looking forward to seeing what he and his soon to be wife's life will look like in 5 years, maybe even 10.

God has been so good to me and my family.  I am so proud of my boys, and what the Lord has done in their lives, and I am so looking forward to seeing what he will do in the future.  I pray that he will continue to work in each of their lives, and that they will both be open to His leading.  I pray that God will bless both of my sons, and that he would make them men of God, and men after God's own heart, like David was.

Thank you Lord!!!

World Peace?!

When we pray for World Peace, do we know what we are praying for really?  There may be those who disagree with me, but the way I understand the Bible, we will not see World Peace, as long as Satan is able to peruse the earth seeking whom he may devour. He is pure evil, and the author of all that can bring about discord, and strife, and where you have these there is no peace. 
There will be a Fake, and orchestrated peace for 7 years during the reign of the Anti-Christ, but True Peace comes from God, and that can be seen in every Christian who hasn't let Satan rob them of it.  True Peace is the calm tranquil feeling inside when all around you is a raging storm.  The way I see it, We will never see True World Peace on this Earth until Satan is thrown into the Lake of Fire in the end.

The Hardest Part of Motherhood: Letting Go, And Letting Them Fly

Being a mother has been one of the brightest spots of my life.  There have been many hard parts to mothering two boys, one with ADHD, and the other on the autism spectrum, but over the years, those hard spots have brought about joy, because both they and I have learned so much.  

My boys are now 19 and 17.  My 17 year old will be 18 in just a few short months.  My 19 year old will be 20 on August.  Where has all of the time gone.  It seems like just yesterday I was holding them in my arms.  I think that the hardest thing for me as a mother has been letting go... My oldest is grown now, and I hardly ever see him.  My youngest is still quite dependent on me, and I wonder if he will ever be ready to fly on his own.  When the time comes, I know it will be even harder to let go of him.

I miss having my oldest son around, but I knew this time would come.  Why does it have to be so hard?  God knows my heart, and he will hold me tight, and help me through this transition.  It's time to let him fly... I know that God will help me let both of my son's fly when it's the right time.  They grow up so fast.  Did I do this mothering thing right...?  I hope so.
