Oh goodness… where do I begin? I was sooooo excited and motivated when I started my blog, but here we are more than 6 months since the last post. Why? Life! So much has happened in the last few months, that I have had so many, “I should blog about this” moments, then… the thought passes and I get sidetracked or think, “oh maybe next time.” What’s been going on? Way too much for one blog entry… so, here’s a summary of the last 6 months and my goal is to come back frequently and write more in detail… I need to… it’ll be therapeutic and healing for my heart.
In April I wrote about my journey with Essential oils which I am still passionate about, and then…
First week of May I decided to pursue my passion in sharing the oils to help others, and specifically the Healing Oils of the Bible and the history of anointing… but then…
Mid-May – I found out I was pregnant with #4 and for the first time in all my pregnancies, I really struggled with this news… it was NOT good timing in my book. My energy level plummeted… A good day was getting out of bed. Our finances were going the opposite direction than they should be and a dear friend was battling for his life.
Mid June – One of our dearest 36 year old friends passed away from a brain tumor. I really don’t want to go here tonight… but my heart had been aching since March when the tumor reappeared and his last week or two of life was the hardest thing my heart has ever been through. Ever.
June/July/August – Summer time I was still insanely tired from being pregnant. I had some really good days, but most of the time I felt super accomplished if I got out of bed, fed my children, made sure they were entertained, and got them back into bed. Essential oils? Oh, I used them a lot, but no energy to study or share them.
September/October – Life got crazier, but brighter… On September 1st, we had our first ultrasound and found out we would be welcoming another princess to the family. My heart instantly grew when I saw her and for the first time I could say I was truly excited to be adding to our family. Finances were still tight and yet Jorge decided to make a career change and pursue his life-long hearts desire – aviation. Not exactly the “right” thing to do when you are needing an income, but the smile on Jorge’s face after his first flight… absolutely hands-down priceless. I will give 110% to make sure that the joy his heart feels and the smile on his face stays. God’s got a plan with this… and I KNOW that it is good.
November… here we are. We are overwhelmed by so many emotions and the whirlwind of life… yet, so excited and at peace about what the future has in store for us. I have so much to share on this blog about things I have learned about pregnancy, motherhood, life in general, oils, parenting and marriage… all in the last 6 months.
I know SO many others are in a similar season as we are. So, my prayer for each and every one of you is that YOU would seek out your passion. It might seem silly to seek it out, but if God has planted that desire in your heart, wouldn’t it be silly NOT to pursue it? I pray that God would reveal the deepest desires of your heart to you because so often we lose sight of them along the way.
Thanks for reading!
