We will serve the Lord.

I had to finish it. For reference sake, it is a scripture from the Bible, found in the book of Joshua, the 24th chapter, 15th verse.

"... choose you this day whom ye will serve; ... but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord."

We're trying. We really are. I want to keep a record of the ways that we're trying to teach our kids how important unity and service really are. I want our kids to know how very blessed their lives are. Of course, it will help for me to have that reminder, as well.

I stink at journaling - at least I do until I try to write a short email or online group post about something that has happened in the life of my family. Then, when I'm typing, I seem to blurt out everything I've been holding inside. I'm hoping I will be better at journaling if I do it in this format. Time will tell, right?

My parents have always said I have a very hard time letting go of people. I don't disagree. I am not very good at expressing it all the time, but the people who come into my life are so very important to me that they become a part of who I am. My brain is constantly filled with thoughts of others, wondering about their lives & current situations, prayers for their well-being. I hope this format becomes another way to stay in touch with the people who mean so much to me.

How uplifting and motivating! Thank you Marian. The older I get the more I realize people are flawed (not just me) and others have difficulties too(knew that one early on). We just have to endure. Faith is the bridge to the other side of all things. You and Michael are strong in that. We love you and pray in our daily family prayer that your new adventure keeps you close (kinda selfish I know, but hey it's our prayer!) Really enjoyed the blog. Hope you keep it up!
