Where Does the Time Go?

I did not mean to be away from the blog for so long. It's just that my days are spent at work, and I don't have a lot of time to myself in the evenings. By the time I put Michaela down, I'm so tired I can't think of what to write about. It all seems kind of mundane, too. I get up and go to work. I come home and play with Michaela. She goes to bed. I zone out on the couch. Repeat. I'm kind of sick of it (the zoning out on the couch part), but I don't know that anything will change before the school year comes to a close. Sigh...

Many of my readers know me from a social networking site, too, and so you are aware that my dad has a cancerous growth on his cheekbone. It is not skin cancer. It is underneath the skin, but we do not know the cell type yet. He is waiting on approval to see the head/neck specialist again so that they can come up with a treatment plan. I have been terribly concerned about him. It was getting the best of me, and then I decided that I needed to refresh my understanding of healing and begin praying scripture for my dad. In doing so, I was reminded of a teaching I heard at church a while back (because I found some notes in my Bible!) where we were taught some biblical approaches to praying for the sick. Three great points were to pray, believe, and expect a miracle. Since I've re-focused my thoughts on what the Lord can do, instead of what cancer can do, I've been feeling better about the situation. Hopefully the week ahead will give my dad some answers about what comes next.

In just a few days Michaela will be eight months old. I'll be working on a post all about Michaela, but I will tell you now that she is just amazing. I am so blessed to have her!

Despite some reservations (maybe I should have taken them more seriously?), I joined a couple of Christian dating sites. Ugh! I am disappointed in what I've seen so far. I know several people who have met their spouses online, so I know it can work. I am looking for a good-looking guy with a heart for the Lord. He's got to be out there somewhere. Right? Keep praying, dear readers. LOL!

So, there you have it. Just a little update on what's going on with me and mine.


  1. Love to you, Joannah, in many ways. Prayers, too. Thanks for the update, and yes, on the dating sites there are a lot you won't want to bother with, but I can tell you God is alive and at work even on the internet!

  2. Oh, silly! Don't worry about blogging on a regular basis! I love your posts but your precious girl is much more important, and your family too. I will be praying for your dad! And for your future. ;) One of my closest friends met her husband on eHarmony!
