Well, I failed miserably to complete my 31 for 21 challenge!
Although to be honest, it was never gonna work - I mean, what was the likelihood of me being able to sit down and blog for up to an hour (or 2) each day when I was also busy toilet-training the very child I was blogging about...??!?
Needless to say we're a looooong way off from succeeding, and have yet to get him to poo anywhere else than his pants. So I've also been busy doing a LOT of laundry, which I guess is a by-product of toilet-training. Oh my.
There is also something major (well - apart from potty-training obviously...) going on in our lives right now: we're moving!
Mark has been offered a very interesting job in Devon, and so we are in the process of getting our house ready to put on the market, which is no mean feat - especially in the current economic climate... In less than 6 months' time, we'll be beginning a completely new life down there!
We have NO DOUBT that this move is of God; the way He has orchestrated it all is extraordinary, and we have faith that He is the one leading the way. But it is nonetheless a pretty big thing for us - and it completely caught us unawares, because moving away from where we are now was never something we were seeking or anticipating.
God is good, but He never allows His children to stay comfortable for very long.
So I guess, I will be blogging from this new perspective from now on.
I am scared of what lies ahead, I am sad to be leaving many loved ones behind, but I am 100% certain that this is His plan for us.
