Oh My Goodness! I'm back!

Dear Friends, it is with great joy and complete contentedness that I write to you from a REAL keyboard!  HOORAY!!!!!  Since the ol' hard drive mishap I have been confined to conducting 99% of my online affairs by iPhone!  Does anyone HATE typing on that thing as much as I do???  I have missed blogging.....  My momma gave us her old computer, for which I am so incredibly grateful- so I'm back!  And eager to check out everyone else's blogs that I have missed over the last 4 months!  Also, I wanna know what Christmas crafts y'all worked on!  I was a busy bee this year!

That being said, I have avoided my blog intentionally.  Just after the hard drive incident things went from bad to worse and, honestly, I couldn't truly find one happy thing to blog about.  Andy's daddy was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer.  I totalled the van.  Abby got a debilitating rash that took 2 months, 3 doctors, 9 perscriptions, and the Cain family fortune to get rid of.  My dearest uncle passed away.  Even now, I am packing to go say good-bye to Andy's daddy.  Not much happy material there, huh?

But if I may be allowed to preach for a moment.....(well, it is MY blog after all)
   God is soooo good.  We have a new-to-us van.  Abby is well.  And Andy's daddy will be ushered into the halls of Heaven soon, with the Saints in glory- to be in the the presence of the Most High forever and ever, Amen! 

  A dear and precious friend of mine reminded me to look to Joshua 1:9... one of my most favorite scriptures:
  Be strong and courageous!  Do not be terrified, do not be discouraged.  For the Lord God is with you wherever you go.

So much comfort and strength to be found in one verse.

I'll see ya again soon!

First, I am so glad you are back, really back to the world of technology. Next, I am so glad you have a new van and a child who is cured from her awful rash. Finally, I am so sad to hear about Andy's dad. I know how this awful disease has affected you in the past and continues to affect you now. I pray for all of you to have peace in the midst of the sorrow and know that we will all see Mr. Cain again one day in heaven. My heart is heavy for you. Love you much!
