The Lord is near. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. ~Philippians 4:4-9

Our family is a circle of strength and love, with every birth and every union, the circle will grow, every joy shared adds more love, every crisis faced together, makes the circle stronger

feathers from my nest....

A new blog name...a new start... I have been in the biggest FuNk lately!! Basically it would take me forever to catch up on it all but if it could happen...its happened! I am hoping & praying for a new start because it just seems this year has been FULL of UPS & DOWNS!!!
In this midst of all of it we have had some great times since I last posted... Sam turned 7 and we partied for a whole week. Love my baby boy and still cant believe that 7 years have come and gone!! Baseball season started...Sam is still playing for North Alabama Red Sox travel baseball and Chad is the assistant coach so this has kept us busy but we wouldnt have it any other way. Love spending my weekends at the ballpark with my Red Sox family watching some baseball.
We are still visiting churches and PRAYING God will soon show us where it would be that our family will call "home". Visiting new churches is so hard & I dont like feeling "homeless". Im ready to be involved again and have a church to call mine. Currently we have been visiting First Baptist in Meridianville and have been there for about 3 months. We have really been enjoying it and Sam especially loves the kids worship and has several friends there so the transition for him has been great.
Easter weekend was wonderful!! Sam was out of school on Good Friday, played in a tournament "Easter Egg Scramble" all day Saturday (even got to see Joy at the ball park & that made my day) and Sunday was spent at church and with family. It was a GREAT day!! My nephew who has always been like a little brother to me announced that he and his wife are expecting their first child. God is so Good & Sam will be thrilled to have a little baby in the family :)
I hope that I can get back in the routine of blogging...mainly because its just a scrapbook for my family. Not sure how many of my blogging friends out there will still be reading but it'll be great to stay caught up and in touch!

had to color a few eggs!!

oh how i <3 these 2

hey jennifer,
i read your blog regularly. i know we went to school together but you graduated the year before me so we did not know each other that well. i know how it is 'church shopping.' it's tough. i still live in HG but i go to church in madison. i have struggled with it for a while b/c i LOVE our church, but i was wanting to go somewhere closer so my little boy could go to church with some of his school friends, but we missed our church so badly so we had to compromise... awana on wednesday night at bethlehem and sundays at our church in madison. we go to summit crossing community church- you should come by... you will not be dissappointed!
