My Apologies

So, whether you have missed me or not, I am back...at least for now.  After several weeks of no blogging, I have come to a few realizations: (1) blogging was wearing me out, yet (2) despite all the work, I love to write!  Needless to say, I need to find a better balance for myself, especially at this stage in my life.  I have a needy (i.e. wonderful) husband, two little girls under three, and another baby on the way.  

Yikes!  I know!  Yes, that's my "life-changing" news!  A blessing from the Lord, no doubt, but a monkey wrench in my plans.  The expression "If you want to make God laugh, tell Him your plans" comes to mind.  I know children are a gift from God.  I have been praying for an attitude adjustment ever since I learned I was pregnant because, honestly, I am tired and another newborn and all that accompanies them, exhausts me.  Yet, I can tell my prayers are working because I can already feel the Lord transforming me, changing my heart and energizing me, despite my fatigue and nausea.

I apologize for my absence and intend to be more present. However, I don't know about menu planning...at least not until this all-day morning sickness subsides.  

My goal for "Growing in His Glory" is still the same: to encourage and help women grow in God's glory as His daughters, as wives, and as mothers, in keeping with I Corinthians 10:31.  That is my own personal goal and something I need plastered front and center in my life every day, especially right now.    

I pray God's richest blessings on you and your families.  Thank you for all your kind words, prayers, and scriptures over the past few weeks in my absence.  That has been a real treasure to me.  



  1. Congratulations, Keri! What wonderful news! I hope you start feeling better soon.

  2. Congratulations! It sounds like God has and will continue to bless you.

  3. Congratulations on the new little one! I hope that you start feeling better and God blesses you with the energy you need.

  4. And what a great goal it is too! I look forward to updates, but take care of yourself and the little ones (and the hubby too!). :)

  5. So glad you're back! But I totally understand about needing balance. Sounds like God is really shaking things up while also pouring out blessings! Even though i just started following your blog, God keeps bringing you to mind. So I've been praying for you and will continue to do so.

  6. Congratulations, Keri! Praying that the weariness and sickness of early pregnancy subsides soon for you. :-)
