Welcome and Blessings!

Thank you so much for stopping by! I have named this blog "Running to the Cross" because that is what I often find myself doing...running to be with my Lord Jesus! I often cover many aspects of life on my blog, as it is my journal. I used to write things down in all sorts of notebooks, but my writings would soon be lost. So I decided that it was time to start a blog and share my thoughts and ideas with others. Many topics you will find here are prayers, homemaking and organization, children and pregnancy, funny stories, and the challenges of parenting and motherhood. If you enjoy my blog and leave me a comment, you are likely to have me visit! I love meeting others and gleaning from the lives of others. May you be blessed! Your friend in Christ, Heather

Internet Finally!!!!

For those of you who are wondering...yes we are officially MOVED!!! Boy was it a fiasco though!!! I wasn't ready...last week we were tying up loose ends...my hubby still has to go back to clean out his shop. But we are now UNPACKING boxes...ugh...this is the hard part...finding a place for everything.

I gave away about 15 boxes of boys clothes...on top of the bags that I gave away...not sure of the total there. I am still in the process of weeding out extra stuff.

But the best part of all this chaos is that I live in a beautiful area...we have to cross a moss-covered bridge everytime we go somewhere and come back...the deer like to graze nearby...and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the fireplace in the living room and the wood stove (that has glass in the door so you can see the fire) in the kitchen!!!

Today I went out twice gathering kindling...what beauty!!! Even in the freezing cold!!!

The first weekend we stayed here we walked down to the beach (remember it is a river beach, not far from the ocean, though)...it was just beautiful!!! However, you could smell the ocean!!! REALLY!!! It made me long for spring, although at that time winter seemed very far off...now it is here!!! And freezing cold...snowing & sleeting...but I still love the outdoors here!!! Much better than before when all you could hear was the cars going by.

Here I can feel God's presense...in the rustle of the leaves of the Holly trees...the whistle of the wind...the songs of the birds...and the beauty all around! This is where God wants us...I am amazed at His blessings!

At the foot of the Cross,
in His humble presense...
