what's important

Sorry I haven't written for so long...this month has been a little crazy with a lot of ups and downs. I definitely learned that the Lord is ever watchful of us and he hears our prayers, that in life all that truly matters are good friends and strong family relationships...oh and life is full of surprises. Did anyone else know that? But I have to say that when it really bites you where it counts it's refreshing to have a little laugh with the ones you love. Well where do I start? I'm not sure how much to say but basically my sister is in the middle of a divorce and her husband left her with 3 small kids. It was one of the hardest things I ever had to do-sitting here in Philly when I knew she was hurting so badly. Luckily for me I had already planned a trip to our family cabin so I knew my family would all be together to be with her during her difficult time. It honestly turned out to be one of my favorite family vacations. 

I have no doubt in my mind that Satan is working as hard as he can to tear families apart. Protect your homes, fill it with the spirit, download K9, do whatever you need to do but be careful of what you and your family let into your lives. It was amazing to see how much the Lord had strengthened my sister and helped her find the peace she needed. She is the most forgiving, strong and amazing person I've ever known and I'm so proud to be her sister.

On my little trip home I was also able to go to Ryan's sister Jess's wedding. It was beautiful and so great to be with all of Ryan's family. Congrats JESS!!!! You all will always be my family and I love you all so much!!! Thanks for letting me celebrate with you! (...and you got me to dance at a wedding again...something I SWORE I'd never do again. You guys are so much fun!!!)
