An Update . . .

-- Thanks to Hero Husband, and my dear friend Jeff, my computer is not only fixed, but better than ever! Thanks to a service called Carbonite, which I highly recommend, everything I had on my computer before the hard drive crashed is back where it belongs--when you have over 25,000 photo files that means more than you know! That all happened weeks ago, so why the long absence from Up the Sunbeam? Sometimes life winds through twists and turns that challenge you, but you can see them coming in time to navigate safely through them as you rely on God's wisdom and His Word. Other times, life takes such an unexpected and violent turn that you have little warning, and no time to prepare. When that happens, you cling to God and realize that you never had control of the steering wheel in the first place--an obvious "Jesus, Take the Wheel" moment. Our life has taken such a turn. It's a story I can't share yet, but my deepest prayer is that someday, when God has written a victorious ending to this chapter in our family's life, I will be able to write here of the ways God saw us through and forged His good out of what the enemy intended for evil. If God puts us on your hearts, your prayers would mean everything. Knowing that He is working is the source of our joy in the midst of the trial. I don't know yet how often I'll be able to post, but I'm not giving up, I'm not going to let the enemy's plans derail something I know God put on my heart to do with the tools He put in my toolbox. I appreciate your patience--please post comments once in awhile when you do stop by--it encourages me more than I can say. Now, from no posts in more than a month to two in one day!! On to my thoughts this Easter Sunday morning!

Hi, Shaunie. I came to your blog several months ago via Athol's. Just a word of prayerful encouragement for you and yours to keep clinging to the Vine. Hope you post again soon.
