I am definitely still Sunny but I'm not at Star Hill anymore. So, I'm thinking it's time to rename my blog. Or retire this one and start a new one. Anyways, I need a little help coming up with some ideas. I have thought about "Blessed Bliss" ;-) or something about Sunny D. I am open to suggestions!
To any of my followers who might still be checking my blog from time to time, your faithfulness will be rewarded! Brandon and I now have internet access and my fingers are getting itchy.
I am so excited to share wedding pictures and to talk about the blessings of marriage. Me and Mr. Ducker, after nearly 4 weeks, are happy as clams and two peas in a pod. The Lord has smiled on this union.
So stay tuned...there will be exciting things coming up! Okay, okay. Here's a little peek:
First things first: I know I have been a terrible blogger as of late. I didn't realize just how distracting becoming engaged would be! So, until things calm down (I'm not sure when that will be) don't count on regular posts from me. I do hope to be a little more active in the blogosphere in the near future, so don't give up on me totally!
Okay, so today, Blane Jr. shared his talents of recording and editing with us, so that Nathan and I could share our talents with you. This song is so very special and we performed it in memory of our brother Jed 2 weeks ago, right before the 10th anniversary of his death. See more about him here.
I hope you will be able to see past the imperfections and listen to what the song is saying.
Who would think it would be so time consuming to shop for yarn online? Well, it is and that's what I've been doing this afternoon. I took a long break from knitting (6 months) and now I'm building up my supply for Star Hill Baby Knits again. It's exciting to be getting back to it, looking at new yarns and new pattern possibilities, but doing all this ate up my "Thoughtful Thursday" time. So, I'll give you a Psalm I read recently to chew on:
May the LORD answer you in the day of trouble!
May the name of the God of Jacob protect you!
May he send you help from the sanctuary
and give you support from Zion!
May he remember all your offerings
and regard with favor your burnt sacrifices! Selah
In the words of a dear friend, my blog has gotten "cobwebby". So, I didn't want another Thursday to slip by without a post.
My precious grandmother, 'Guh', who has suffered from Alzheimers disease for the last 15 years or so, is very near the end of her earthly journey. It is amazing how good her physical health has continued to be for so many years, but now she is rapidly deteriorating.
I feel like the three main lessons of my life have been learning who I am, who God is and how to be patient.
Learning to wait. A lesson in which you need to have patience in order to learn it. I'm sure you all have had the experience of waiting for something. As a child, waiting an hour seemed like an eternity. Thankfully, I have learned a little patience so that an hour is no longer a challenge. But days, weeks, months, years?! Still hard. And the more you focus on the thing you're waiting for, the longer it seems to take. Like the watched pot that never boils.
I titled today's post Freedom Friday because, even though I have set the precedent of Thoughtful Thursday, I am free to miss a day, to skip a day, and write some other time. So, I trust my readers will give me grace.
Now that is something the Lord brought to my attention a couple nights ago...
