Is it really almost February?

Been a long time since I wrote anything.

Haven't been much in the mood.

Wish no news always equaled good news, but that isn't always the case.

Still smack dab in the middle of the storm, and just when the winds appear to be settling down, storm clouds larger than before blow in. It's exhausting- mentally and emotionally, which ends up meaning physically as well.

Clinging to the knowledge that God is right here with us and none of this is a surprise to Him. I live to bring all praises and glory to His name, and if walking this path will ultimately glorify His name, bring it on! He'll sustain me. My God is big enough.

Loving the promises in Isaiah 41:10 right now.
"So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand."

On a happy note...

I am looking forward to this weekend. Every February I get together with my sorority family from college. Me and my littles! I am the oldest and then it's my little Bridget, her little Becca, her little Mary, her little Erin and her little Kelly. Even though I had graduated by the time Erin and Kelly entered the family they are still that... my sisters. Kelly can't join us from TX this year- she is a new mommy, but the other 5 of us will be there. We decided to meet up in a central location to make travel easier on Bridget who is 8 months pregnant with #3. So Washington, D.C. it is! We'll arrive Friday night and depart Sunday afternoon. Becca, who lives the closest has made all the arrangements. She just messaged me that she has booked us for afternoon tea Saturday at the Mandarin Oriental Empress Lounge. It's supposed to be amazing! The menu looks so good! I have been saving for several months to afford this trip and am really excited about catching up with dear friends and getting away. I need this!
