I'm so glad to see your smiling faces here today. I've been spending quite a bit of time away from the ole blog this last week. I'd like to say it was for a vacation or some other fun reason. Unfortunately, it has been a very emotional week. I know there is a purpose in trials, and sometimes we don't even see what the purposes are this side of heaven. I am confident of this though, God's plans are perfect. I trust that whatever is going on will ultimately work for the good of our family. To God be the glory!
