Hello everybody! It has been way to long. I believe I am suppose to start blogging again, but, on very specific topics. So, I will have two blog posts, this one, and, for blended family issues, those that have gone thru being widowed, divorced, etc, I have started another one as well…
 
Please visit http://hope4blendedfamilies.wordpress.com here is a little of what the Lord has put on my heart.

It does not matter how you got here…
If you would have told me THIS would have been my life, when I was a young bride… I would have never believed you.  I had it all figured out at 19, if you live your life the right way, you will have exactly what you want, and exactly what you plan to have.  For almost 7 years my life did go perfectly according to plan.  Perfect, faithful, loving husband… check, two healthy beautiful little girls… check, sales-job I loved… check, ministry I was passionate about…. check.

Two o’clock in the morning on November 25th 1995… it all came crashing down with a violent knock on my front door.  A uniformed policeman delivered the life changing words; my husband John had been in an accident and was dead.  Our baby girls, two and four years of age, were sleeping down the hall unaware that their world, their family would never be the same.  I knew we would survive, I knew my heart would not stop beating, even though it felt like it would explode inside my chest from the grief and pain.  I called out to a God I loved, but didn’t know intimately. 

For the rest, please go to http://hope4blendedfamilies.wordpress.com thanks, and I am excited to see how the Father works here! Lisa
