Mr. & Mrs. Joshua C_________

It's me!! Have you forgotten who I am by now? I know....it has been a crazy last few months. But I have good news....I shall soon return to blogging....I hope!!

The sentencing is over for the man that murdered my brother. He is currently serving 30 years in prison. It was a long process to see him put behind bars for what he did...but that chapter is over.

Another chapter is over as well and a new one has begun. The chapter of Kristina's single life and the wedding that we were planning has come and gone. She is now married to the love of her life and is on her honeymoon. They are having a terrific time. It is a real adjustment for me and my husband. I have cried tears and asked the Lord to help me adjust. When you have had children with you your entire marriage (over 23 years of your life) it is very different to no longer have them with you at home. Even my husband is finding it strange and difficult to adjust. But a new chapter is beginning....that chapter is of her being a wife and sometime in the future a mother. I am looking forward to this next chapter of being a Nana in my life.

Jessica is doing great. She is blossoming and glowing. Her and Ronnie are doing well. She told me today she is having contractions....sporadic ones but contractions nonetheless. That is our next big event.

My husband and I are also currently looking for a house to move to closer to his job. He currently drives an hour and a half one way to work and that is difficult for anyone under any circumstances but he works the overnight shift and that shift is a more difficult shift to work since God intended for man to sleep when it is dark not be awake and working.

I hope to be back to blogging regularly again soon. I am still needing to work in order to help keep us afloat. Once we move I should not have to work any longer. I am very excited about that since I miss keeping up with my blog. I will post more pictures of the wedding once Kristina gets her posted. I do not want to take away from her the opportunity to share with everyone about her special day. So check back....I'll either have pictures or a link for you to go to so you can see hers.

Hello I was wondering if your family had the same veiws on having children and the Quiverfull. If this is too personal that is ok I understand.

Kelley....We believe in trusting the Lord for the number of children and when we have them. God control....not birth control. To do anything else is us controlling it. God should control every aspect of the child of God's life. And this is no different for the number of children and when we have them.

Thank you for your answer. I found Kristina's blog by accident one day. I thought the idea of courtship and no touching a little strange at first but as I read about their courtship and thought about it I realized their wedding night would be truly special. I believe in God but He isn't in my life so much, your and Kristina's blogs have started me thinking.

Wow, you have certainly had a lot of major life changes these last couple of years, that is *never* easy but you have handled it with grace and faith. (o:

I pray God's blessings on you as you enter this new phase of it being back to just the 2 of you and becoming grandparents.
