The year is almost at a close and while I tend to want to look back, I am choosing to look forward. For our family we are coming to the end of a chapter in our lives. My husbands job is ending in January and we are moving. All the waiting for some decisions were made and final so new decisions, plans are now in front of us. This is where we are right now.
I'm looking forward to new adventures, new doors to open and continue on this healing journey. We are all looking forward to the warmer climate in Florida.

My time here blogging will be shorter than I would like but I wanted to give an update. We still have waiting to do, waiting on others to finalize paperwork, waiting on last appointments and waiting for housing door to open. On a happier note - we are seeing some progress with my muscles and healing from my dental surgery. I have lost 30 lbs and still going. Waiting on blood work to come back but had a good report from cardiologist - EKG good and he was happy to know I am working on loosing weight and seeing some progress.

I thank you all for reading and praying for me and my family. May God bless you now and in the coming months.

"Bless the LORD, O my soul;
         And all that is within me,
bless His holy name!
 Bless the LORD, O my soul,
         And forget not all His benefits:
 Who forgives all your iniquities,
         Who heals all your diseases,
 Who redeems your life from destruction,
         Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies,
 Who satisfies your mouth with good
So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s" 
Psalm 103:1-5

TSMSS - Away In A Manger

Away in A Manger

"And it came to pass in those days that a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered. This census first took place while Quirinius was governing Syria.
So all went to be registered, everyone to his own city.
Joseph also went up from Galilee, 
out of the city of Nazareth, into Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David, to be registered with Mary, his betrothed wife, who was with child. So it was, that while they were there, the days were completed for her to be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn. Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them,and the glory of the Lord shone around them,
and they were greatly afraid.
Then the angel said to them,
“Do not be afraid, for behold,
I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people.
For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior,
who is Christ the Lord.
And this will be the sign to you:
You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger.”
  And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying:
  “Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!”
So it was, when the angels had gone away from them into heaven,
that the shepherds said to one another,
“Let us now go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has come to pass, which the Lord has made known to us.”
And they came with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the Babe lying in a manger. Now when they had seen Him, they made widely known the saying which was told them concerning this Child. And all those who heard it marveled at those things which were told them by the shepherds. But Mary kept all these things and pondered them in her heart. Then the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told them."
Luke 2:1-20

TSMSS - Freedom is Here

Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him,
“If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed.
  And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
  They answered Him, “We are Abraham’s descendants, and have never been in bondage to anyone. How
can You say, ‘You will be made free’?”
  Jesus answered them,
“Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin.
  And a slave does not abide in the house forever, but a son abides forever.
  Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed."
John 8:31-36

Freedom is Here by Esterlyn
The future comes alive
You speak your word and I
I'm running into Your hope

Because I've seen Your light
You bring my world to life
I'm coming after Your love

Cuz I'm not shaken
I'm not not letting go
And everything comes alive
In my life as we lift You higher
Let Your freedom arise
In our lives as we lift You up
Sing it out
Freedom is here

So take the limits off
No matter what the cost
I'm running after Your call
And I will run this race
See You face to face
Let Your power overflow

Cuz I'm not shaken
I'm not not letting go

And everything comes alive
In my life as we lift You higher
Let Your freedom arise
In our lives as we lift You up
Sing it out
Freedom is here
Your freedom is here

I will not fear
I will not hide Your love, Your love
All of my life
I can not deny Your life

And everything comes alive
In my life as we lift You higher
Let Your freedom arise
In our lives as we lift You up
Sing it out
Freedom is here
Your freedom is here
Freedom is here
Your freedom is here

"Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,
looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God."
Hebrew 12:1-2

Praising God!
