Hopefully back to normal!

I'm back! After literally non-stop craziness in my house the last few weeks, I am hoping for some normalcy! Two blizzards later, not seeing my husband for days on end, both of our vehicles breaking down, my grandpa passing away, trying to find a vehicle to borrow to get to the funeral, me experiencing a child (Z) having the flu for the first time ever in 3.5 years of parenting, our borrowed vehicle having to be fixed as the tires were shot, and finally spending a long evening in the ER after Zoelle dislocated her elbow....I am ready for normalcy!

 I'm pretty sure that in three weeks, the only positive experience we truly have had is Xiomara's Finalization. I was feeling very down and wondering why life seemed to hit me all at once, when God literally had a friend post this as her facebook status:

Psalm 34:19-20

The righteous person may have many troubles,

but the LORD delivers him from them all;

he protects all his bones,

... not one of them will be broken.
What is even cooler though is that she was thinking of me when she posted it as her status and I happened to log onto facebook right after she did. I realized that God was telling me something and so I started declaring His goodness over our family. Is life going to be perfect from here on out? Probably not, but at least I know that God is with us and that I am not in this craziness alone.
I'm craving the new normalcy...however that looks to God...I'm ready for it!
