I'm back!

I never realized how much I relied on my computer until I was literally without one. My hard drive crashed in March for the 5th and final time, I got a new one with the Vista system that did NOT work, spent 6 hours on the phone trying to get it fixed, sent it back for a full refund and finally got my new one today! Woo hoo!

In the meantime I used computers when I could, but never had enough time to post a blog or read anyone else's... talk about withdrawal. Today I'm officially back and trying to catch up -- posting and reading other blogs.

While offline, I was blessed to be in a Bible study of the book "Lessons I Learned in the Dark: Steps to Walking by Faith, Not by Sight" by Jennifer Rothschild. She is an incredible gal who lost her sight in her teens and has since been teaching others how to stop searching for visible "proof" of God but to trust Him and walk by that faith in Him. What a timely book and such a great wake-up call for me. I am really, honestly, finally at peace with my station in life. I will no longer be seen as the "poor girl who can't get pregnant" or the "friend who needs to hear about pregnancies in private" or the girl who "spends so much time saying 'poor me'."

I have the most beautiful family, incredible friends, awesome ministries and most importantly a God who gives me peace beyond all understanding. I will never be perfect and am sure I will slip and moan/groan from time to time, but I am happy with who I am. I am the woman that God has created me to be. Just thought I'd let anyone who actually reads this know that it's all good. :O)

Welcome Back! I love the victory I hear in your 'voice' in this post. Sounds like I missed out on a great study. 'Poor me' is where so many of us like to hang out, whatever our circumstances. It's such a joy to make our way out of there!

Welcome back to the www!

Yes, Daneen, welcome back! I did that study with a couple of groups at Grace last year. What a great study! As Addie said, I also love the victory I hear in you in this post. :)
