To blog or not to blog?

I have reached the point in my blogging life that I don't actually know what to do ~ keep it going or quit?  I don't know.

I have blogged about faith, family, crafting, pinterest,, cooking, weddings, children, homeschooling, travels, missions, diets, etc.  I guess I am burned out.

Its been a long year for our family.  The joy, excitement, and love surrounding Amy's wedding is something I will never forget and will cherish forever.  We had loads of help and encouragement from friends and family. But there were quite a few disappointments along the way with broken promises and other issues ~ that's hard to get over.

Unfortunately, there were some issues with 2 of our other children that affected us too.  Both are life altering, family jolting issues.  Our faith and our total belief in the Sovereignty of God are getting us through these situations.  I don't understand one of them at all ~ why does one choose to do something?  Anyway, I am not going into details about either but prayers are appreciated.

A constant joy in our lives is the 4 grandsons the Lord has blessed us with.  They are energetic, mischevious, silly, and totally lovable.  They love each other and getting together to play.  At the ages of 5, almost, 4, 3, and 2 ~ they keep our house hopping with excitement.  We wouldn't trade our time with them for anything!

I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas!  We are hosting my family this year and Austins folks will be here too.  Christmas day will be fun!

Thankful for ~
