A Well Lit Path On An Unknown Road

This has been my first week home, without a "real" job.  It has been kind of depressing, missing my preschoolers and co-workers.  On the other hand, God has shown me that there are a lot more things to keep busy with, be grateful for and new goals to reach! 
Some of my new goals are:
 *Be the Mom that I always wanted to be~ to raise my children to be Godly children.
 *Put a lot of energy into helping those in need, in as many ways that I can.
*Potty train my toddler (really, it is harder than it sounds!).
*Join a class at my church.
*Fulfill my dream of being a photographer.

I have a head start on some of these goals, already!  I have found ways to reach out to my kids, many opportunities to show them how much God and myself love them. I don't know if those opportunities would have come up had I still been working full-time.  I appreciate the time that I have with my children a lot more, and it is a lot less stressful.  That has been a blessing!

When it comes to putting more energy into helping those in need, my sisters and I have jumped into Enraptured Embrace head first, and have learned a lot already.  This mission is helping me a lot, and I LOVE IT!  I look forward to making these memory quilts, and sending love and comfort to those who have suffered the losses like our family has in the past years.

Potty Training my toddler.  Oh, boy!  This has been a wake up call.  I have always had help in this field, since my children have always been in childcare!  I will delve into that more in another blog entry, I think.  This is going to be a process!

I have yet to join a class at church.  I have, however, taken a brochure and looked over the classes that I am interested in joining.  I am taking Zumba at church, and yes I know that doesn't really count.  I want to be able to read and understand the Bible, and I know that a class with other women will really benefit me as a whole. 

My photography business is underway.  I have put the offer out to some family and friends to take family pictures to build up my portfolio.  I have had a lot of feedback, and offers for props which I am really excited about. 

In whole, God has shown me a lot this week.  I look forward to moving down this well lit path!  This is something that is new to me, and I am looking to God for guidance.  I know that he will guide me along the way!  I have faith!

It is the Lord who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not fail you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed. (Deuteronomy 31:8)

The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear; though war rise up against me, yet I will be confident. (Psalm 27: 1, 3)

God Bless you, and thank you for reading!
