The 30 Day Blog Challenge: Day 26
Welcome to Day 26 of The 30 Day Blog Challenge hosted by me, C.C., here at I'm On My Way and my online BFF Jamee at A New Kind of Normal. Today's assignment is to post a blog post in which you think back to how you were 5 years ago and then post about how you have changed since then. Make sure you grab the 30 Day Blog Challenge button (use the code that's in the box below) to post in your blog post and once you publish your blog post, enter your link below so we can look at each other's posts.
These pictures were actually taken in late 2006. On January 1, 2007, we moved from New Mexico to Abilene, Texas. Russ started school at Logsdon Seminary and I continued staying home with Damaris and homeschooling her. We found an amazing church home. We made some great friends. And within a few months, I decided to go back to school too. I also started the Couch to 5K program and ran some races and lost a good bit of weight. Healthwise, I was dealing with the migraines and some other issues, but the fibromyalgia didn't rear it's head until late in the year.
Now, 5 years later, we're living in New Mexico again, but going to Abilene tomorrow for the weekend. Russ and I both finished our M.Div. degrees. I spent 2 years as a hospital chaplain. I can no longer run because of my health. Fibromyalgia is so bad that I'm sidelined a lot of the time. Disability application is in my near future. God has taught me a lot though in these 5 years. Grace and peace are so important to me that the words are tattooed on my wrists. What does the future hold for me? I'm not totally sure, but I hope to be in a place eventually where I can still minister to others in some fashion.
