New Beginnings

A new year and new beginnings. It is awesome to have the Lord daily in my life. Without Him I would be walking aimlessly. Which brings me to the topic of my post.

New Beginnings in my life. I am excited for the New Beginnings the Lord is bringing this year. I actually heard this word just before the birth of my 6th child, baby Kole. This was one year ago. I thought, "new beginnings" meant saying goodbye to the season of having babies and saying hello to a new life of not having to be pregnant again. Little did I know that my Lord has other plans. His plans are way bigger than what we can fathom. When we think in our own understanding that we need to go one direction, the Lord always seems to interfere with our plans and shows us His ways. As I have said before, Seek and you will find His ways. And His ways are the best ways.

New beginnings WAS a different message in my heart (my own fleshly heart). My own understanding of how things should go were blown clear out of the water. The Lord has brought me back to the place of beginnings. A rebirth of the things He spoke to me years ago. The things I was passionate about years ago, have been reborn. It is sort of like I am reborn again. I feel like I had been walking in the wilderness trying to find my way back. I would walk feeling like there would be no end to this journey. Then I would stop somewhere and have a drink and stay there because it was a place of comfort. There were times I was walking the right path, but there times that I was not on course.

This past year, 2006, has been a year of getting back to the beginning in three areas Family, homeschooling, and health. The Lord had put His desires in my heart regarding these three areas of life years ago. First in the area of family, the Lord has been showing me great treasures regarding the true blessing of children in our lives. I will share later about this revelation the Lord has shown me. He has also brought me back to what He has spoke in regards to homeschooling. I got off track by being fearful in what I was NOT teaching the children and I forsook the most important teaching of the day---His Word! I was so consumed in the schedule and the curriculums that I neglected teaching the Word to my children. Lastly, the Lord is showing me how eating more healthy foods benefits our bodies. Being aware of what we put into our bodies is very important to our health.

I am excited about the wonderful changes and the rebirth of His plans in my life. I am also sooo very joyful about my little sister receiving the Lord. I look forward to the awesome changes in her life. I REJOICE ALWAYS in MY GOD!!!

Blessings!!!!


Me and My beautiful Family---Tuttle Nation----

Thanksgiving at home: First time in 18 years

Let's just say that we didn't plan to spend Thanksgiving at home this year. I think the last time we celebrated in our own home was back when Moriah was a baby.  Yeah...that's about 18 years ago or so.  Let me tell you....W e absolutely loved it! Here's a little run down on how our plans were miscommunicated. You see...Donnie and I didn't communicate our Thanksgiving plans very well this year.  He had forgotten that we had spent Thanksgiving with his side of the family last year so that meant it was time to drive up to Jacksonville and spend time with my side of the family.  With not much talk of our T hanksgiving plans, I hear from the kids that he t old brother or dad not sure who that we would be heading down to see them Thanksgiving.    This conversation happened just a few weeks before Thanksgiving.  Kids: Hey where are we going for Thanksgiving this year? Me: Ummm....I think it's Jax.   One of the kids:  I thi

Stop the Rush

Since returning to blogging, I'm finding some drafts lost in the archives of this ole' blog.  It's interesting to read and think about the day, time, year....when I wrote this specific post. What was I feeling? What was I thinking? This specific post was drafted on March of 2016...Ana was around 7 years old. That was almost 5 years ago! This sweet little girl turned 12 last week.      As I read through the post, I remember that feeling of "rushing", a lot of it was in my mind but I also was rushing...kids to school, boys doing some sort of sport, Ana was taking dance, helping kids with homework, no need to go on.  You get my point.  This was 5 years ago!  This was a year before we left our town Gainesville, Florida to explore the United States and Mexico.  A lot has changed since then and looking forward to catching you all up on everything. So here we go... Most of the time I find myself barely living in the moment.  That's if I don't purposely try to liv
