Home is where the Heart is....

Well, long time, no blogging...I am sorry...I know that those of you who check my blog wonder where I have been...=) (all 3 of you) Hee hee...So, here goes...We finished up an amazing summer in the city...Can't believe that our summer in NY has come and gone...We are already making plans for next summer...and can't wait....Where do I begin?

The things that I experienced this summer...I can just hardly put into words...I mean-I blogged about a lot of the details of our trip...the go sees, the auditions, and the shoots...but the "life lessons" that I have learned I will never forget...Learning to exist, in a strange city, where we knew no one, and had no idea even where to begin...People visit NY all the time for vacation...but to go and "make it home" for a time, is surreal...I still hear the sounds of the city when I am just being still...We take silence for granted here in TN...I am amazed to go outside my house, and listen to nothing...something that I wouldn't have realized without this experience in my life....We did miss our home...but I realized that once my family was together-the boys were back with us-that Home is where you make it...For a time, our home was in NY...and I was happy with that....actually LOVED it...=)

The spiritual impact that I had while on this life journey was unexplainable...I have said to one person after another....yes, Macey had an amazing experience, and did lots of work...but if she didn't book the first job-I know that God had us go for a reason....He wants us to have faith in Him, to trust Him, and to put Him first in our lives...from the big things like traveling safety to the small things to making sure we get on the right subway to make it to an audition on time....amazing..and He was there-the entire time...=)

Well, now that we are home...will update you on the "modeling stuff" for Miss Macey...We are planning a little road trip this weekend...Macey has an interview Monday with an agent in Nashville...She is hoping to get represented by them, so she can be working while we are in TN...This is her dream...and we are praying continuously for guidance through all of this...So remember her in your prayers..=)

I go for a job interview tomorrow...so remember me as well...Many of you know that I had to
quit my job to get to take Macey to New York...I really had a difficult time with that entire situation...but I have given it over to my Lord...and do you know what I have recieved? Peace...complete peace...and I just following his will...not sure what that is yet...but just waiting...God is In Control...

I have many more NY pics to post...and will do that as soon as I get time...Trying to let my kids enjoy their summer...We have 3 weeks before school starts...and trying to cram in all the summer fun we can in this time frame...Love you guys...

It is sooo...good to have you all home. I know that this summer is an experience that your whole family will never forget. God definitely has been a part of your journey and He continues to be. We will be praying for you and your family that He will continue to lead and guide you as I know He will.
Love you,
