I don’t have the capability to put this audio file on my blog, but it’s my favorite worship song and the lyrics are really speaking to me right now.
“Your mercy goes much deeper, Your grace it rescues me
Your mercy goes much deeper, farther than I can see
Your mercy goes much deeper, Your grace it rescues me
Your mercy goes much deeper, father than I can see
I reach for You, when I’m going under
I wait for You, Jesus, You’re my lifeline
Where could I go? Where could I stand? How could I leave the shelter of Your hand?”
The lyrics are wonderful but it doesn’t do it justice without the song. I will post the song at a later date. Tonight, it’s just me, the Lord, and some inspiration from Lindell Cooley.
So, I’m still very much broken-hearted over leaving my job. But, I’m working at looking towards my future and what the Lord has for my family and me. I don’t think that I’ve really taken the time to enjoy being a Mom, so I’ve been spending a lot of time with my wonderful son. Paul and I took him swimming on Saturday and he loved it. Which isn’t surprising, because he loves everything. He’s been so clingy with me. In a “Hey, I’m seeing you more often now and that’s pretty exciting!” kind of way. That makes me feel incredibly loved. Derek is amazing therapy for a broken heart.
I also registered for school. I’ve always wanted to finish my degree. So, I’m enrolled as a full-time student starting in the fall. I’ll be finishing my degree in music and preparing for that has been therapeutic as well.
Paul and I visited a church on Sunday. It was nice but it’s going to take a lot for me to see any other church as my church home. ORCC has been such a wonderful family and, in my eyes, it’s going to be hard to find anything that compares.
Due to my struggles with PPD and the recent loss of my father, I’ve decided to leave my job. All of this just proved to be a little too much to handle. Paul and I felt that is was also a season where we needed to step away from our church, which was a very difficult decision to make.
We love our church and I loved my job, but for now I just need time for my husband, my son, and well… for me. Your prayers are welcomed.
I’m going through a new season in my life and waiting on how that’s shaping. I will keep you posted.
I know, I know… I get way more response when I stick to what I do best, Mommy blogging! So, here’s my wordless Wednesday for you with no one else but my amazingly adorable child. Enjoy!
Already on the computer. I know all Moms say this, but my kid really is brilliant. That’s just fact.
Bonding time with Dad
Amazing. Nuff said.
