Wowser!  The last three months have been some of the craziest of my life.  I have had to endure hush hush meetings and interviews that would throw the balance of my life into chaos, the excitement of the hubbs receiving the promotion of a lifetime, the pain of saying good bye to dear friends and don't forget the adventure of packing moving and unpacking.  To top it all off, I decided to throw myself back into the world of teaching by homeschooling my kindergartner and second grader. While all this was going on my brain was moving to fast to keep up.  I had list upon list of things to do, cute moments with the kiddos I wanted to record and thoughts both simple and deep I wanted to share.  But alas, I had zero time to sit and pound them out and into existence.  I told Matty that I need a recorder that attached to my brain and made record of important thoughts and details.  It would probably look quite strange, but would be effective.  All that to say, I have much I want to share and hope to put into words in the coming week.  Some are only random thoughts, others are topics impacting my heart in a huge way!

Keep your eyes peeled for these upcoming topics:

~  What, It's Not About Me?!
~  I Believe in Evolution.
~  Heaven, Through The Eyes of A Child.

But just to make you smile...

This evening before praying with the boys, Canon was lying in my lap and I noticed he had some boogers in his nose.  I apologize if that seems gross, but I am the mom of three boys.  And so I naturally did what any mom of boys would do - I picked it.  Unfortunately I came up empty.  But not to be discouraged I tried again. I was unsuccessful a second time.  Canon lay there with a big smile on his face, patiently letting me pick at him.  Finally he told me, "Momma, yous fingers too big.  See, mine tiny.  God made them for my nose.  I get it."  Though silly and slightly gross, I was reminded of this truth - we were created for a certain purpose.  Our personalities, convictions and abilities are unique to us.  We only "fit" in the will and path that God has for us. I am "too big" or "too small" to accomplish what God planned for your life and vice versa. It encouraged me to know that I have a Maker that laid plans for me to "give me a future and a hope".

And just for the record, we got a Kleenex and washed our hands after our little adventure!

For I know the thoughts I thinks toward you,
says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil,
to give you a future and a hope.
Jeremiah 29:11


  1. Kellbell, you amaze me time after time with your posts. It once again hits the nail on the head of the questions that are going on in my little brain (facing the challenge of a lifetime). I love how God uses blogs to speak as well as His Word. I'm so excited for all the new changes that you are facing (especially with no more hush hush!). I do wish that we lived close enough that I could listen to Matty's show...if it streams online, let me know! <3 Becky and the Bowmans
