I am linking up for the ULTIMATE BLOG PARTY 2011 WITH 5 Minutes for Mom!
Hi I'm Heather! I am called many things; a child of God, wife, mommy, daughter, sister, supervisor, grandaughter, aunt, niece, Hev to my friends, well, you get the point. None of these things define who I am as a person just what label I have been given at any particular time. Most important is that I am a child of God, a Christ follower, a woman trying to abide by his Word to grow a deeper relationship with Him.
In January 2010 my life took a turn in a direction I had never imagined. It was always something you "hear" about but never can fully understand, until you are stuck right in the center of it and there just isn't a way out. On the 30th of January in 2010 my little brother (only by 15 mths but still little to me) was murdered. I fell apart but not completely because fortunate enough for me I knew enough about God's love for us. I had began my journey with Christ to truly know Him and not just about Him about a year before this happened. He is WHO has held me up, put back the pieces I lost and is still holding them together.
Some days I lose it, some days I just cry, some days I find joy and happiness, some days I can feel peace, but everyday I am reminded of what was lost. Taken so selfishly by someone who tried to be God.
I have 2 sweet and very precious daughters, Ava is 5 and Zoe is 2! They brighten my days and can also make mommy a little "you know what," trying to find that 5 minutes for myself. I have been married for 7 years this May to a wonderful man, Rob. I am learning to deal with my grief, my responsibilities as a wife and mom, my work responsibilities and continuously learning to depend upon God's strength to accomplish the things in my day. This blog was really started for me, as a way to release some of my feelings and show how God has helped me. I have met so many wonderful bloggers in the process and am so thankful for many of their encouragement and prayers.
I live in Georgia right where I grew up! I love that I am from the south but I am also interested in what the rest of this world has to offer.
So please stay, look around and if you think you will like me, I would love to get to know you!
God Bless, With Love,
With Love Heather at Wednesday, April 06, 2011
