Wow, I know it has been way to long since I have updated my blog. Life has been crazy in the Rogers household the past couple of months. I injured my hand and was unable to craft for a while 😦 that was not fun. I really missed creating and making things. That was just the beginning, and that was actually the easy part.
We found out that my uncle had pancreatic cancer and didn’t have long to live, He put up a good fight but we lost him on October 13th. Although it was difficult to have lost such an amazing man, I am thankful he will no longer be suffering, and is with our Heavenly Father. Just a few short weeks after this, my dear sister-in-law lost her 19 yo brother in a terrible accident. Luckily we were able to take in her girls so that she could head back east to be with her family. He was a lovely young man with a bright future, and touched many lives. It is sad that his life here was cut short. I know that he too, is with our loving Heavenly Father.
So life continues to give us our trials as my oldest went to emergency and was admitted needing gall bladder surgery. She came through it, easily with just a restriction of no heavy lifting.
Things seem to be looking up and then my 16 yo, who only has her learner permit, had an accident in my van. I hate to admit, that it was more my fault than hers, as she was listening to my instruction…Note to self…Teenagers to not react as quickly as experienced drivers. Luckily it wasn’t too bad and no serious injuries were sustained.
Through all of these trials I have never wavered in the fact that I know Christ guides us through the difficult times in our lives, and never gives us challenges that we can not handle. If we remember to pray and ask for his guidance we can survive anything that is given to us.
With Thanksgiving upon us, I want each of you to know that I am thankful for the many blessings that the Good Lord has shared with me. My family, a warm home, the necessities we need to sustain us and the many friends that we have. I am also thankful for the trials and tribulations that come our way, because I know it is the Lords way of making me a stronger person, and being able to serve others that may be going through those same things.
I hope each and everyone of you have a Wonderful Thanksgiving and are able to spend time with your families. Those of you that have families far away may you be able to talk with them and feel their love. I send love and prayers to all of you, and especially those men and women serving our country, and their families that are without them at this time, so that, they may protect our freedoms.
Bless you all,
