Today marks the one year anniversary of Just Making Noise! As you all know, so much has happen since the starting of my blog. I have so much to share! So, again... I ask that you get comfortable in your chairs, couches, counter stools or whatever you are sitting on at the moment.
I wish I could say that this is a happy day, but to be honest... I woke up with tears in my eyes and a heavy heart. The first thought that came to my mind was... I can´t do this!
Living in Honduras as strip away most of the comforts that I´ve grown up with and it has been hard. There are days where I wish I had a Trader´s Joe or health food store just around the corner and my friends close by, but I don´t. Thankfully, I was given the opportunity to check my email and blog without the girls so I can focus, get some things done and get caught up (Thanks to my wonderful family). Of course, I wanted to see what people had to say about my last post and one caught my eye:
Thanks so much for letting us in on your life and giving us specific ways in which to pray for you and your family. I feel I have found a kindred spirit in you and your blog. Today alone I made 2 of your recipes ( Rise-n -Shine Smoothie & Kefir Sourdough Pizza ) - both were delish! Will be praying for you and your family as you make this transition to Honduras. Here's a section of Scripture that has encouraged me as of late: Phil 4:11-13 "Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content. I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any & every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance & need. I can do all things through him who strengthens me. "
Thank YOU Child of Grace and each one of you who left my blog with prayers, scriptures and encouragement. It warmed my heart knowing that you all care and are praying for my family. Now I feel so much better! Of course, I have my Lord Jesus and know I could not do anything with Him.
Now, I have many little things to share with you all:
Your prayers for Tabi were heard and she is about 95% healed. THANK YOU!! Her skin is returning to normal and we are so grateful that we chose not to go the medical route. The natural route DOES WORK... just need to be patience to allow the body to heal and straighten itself out. So often we want the problem(s) to be gone right now and I am guilty of that, but I am so glad God used Tabi´s skin issue to teach me a new level of patience. Please don´t think I´ve got it all together... I don´t, I still have so much to learn about patience and letting God be in control. Please keep praying for me and healing for Tabitha, thank you!
