New for me

Well my blog friends it is time for me to take a little blog break.  I have way too many "hats" on right now and I'm not feeling like I am doing any well.  Even though writing is my passion I've decided to take a 2 week at least break from doing it.

We have about 60 days left til John's sisters wedding which we are all in.  And that means I have bridal shower prep to do!  (All 4 of our fittings are done).

I am also leading a Ladies Bible study every Tuesday. Please pray I can be a blessing to the women that come.  We recently had a woman come just by seeing our sign on the highway, and she even felt comfortable to share insights on her life with us!  This runs til April.

I still do icebreakers and plan all our playdates/field trips for the MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) group in Englishtown that I belong to.  This is a twice a month commitment.

I'm on the Women's Ministry Team and we just launched our Secret Encourager program for the next few months and we are working on the Big Reveal on May 18th.

Julia and Mark are still busy with Mommy School each day as we learn to read, write, work on Math skills, practice our state and presidents, and do our Awana Bible homework.

And remember, I have an amazing husband that I need to bless, care for and support in all that he does work wise and ministry wise (which is a LOT!).

And I was recently asked to do a photo-shoot for a NJ magazine on being a MOM!  I'm really excited.  It's in a week and it's all day...I'm still working on who will watch my kiddies for 8 hours while I am away!!!

I'm learning that some things that I love to do (blogging and facebook) need to go on the back burner for a little while so I can focus on the people God has entrusted me with.  I've been having some stomach issues because of all the "hats" I wear and have been a little stressed to meet all the deadlines I put on myself.  I think it's best if I take a little Media Fast from the computer.  I'd love to write about it when I "come back" in two weeks.

I will be missing all of you and your comments.  Please pray for us as a family as I begin to tackle potty training this week with Mark...he is SO ready to do it, but not too willing.  I don't want to push him but I also don't want him to be lazy about something he CAN do if he tries.  Pray that God will give me the wisdom and clarity and patience while working one on one with him.  I know it can be a very special bonding time between parent and child, so I am excited about that.  And we bought really cool super hero big boy underwear at Target!

See you in two weeks.
