New Look, New Post & New Year
Well, I have done a lot of thinking lately and was considering closing down the blog. I thought, "Do I even need to continue with this blog, does anyone even read it?" I thought about the time it takes to update it and to write on it. After thinking through all of this I came to the conclusion that I would keep the blog. Here is why; I do this blog for me (sorry for the few of you that do read it). I do this blog, so when I get to sit down and journal in the two baby books I am trying to keep up with, I can go back and look on my blog to see what Andrew & Molly have accomplished, the silly things they have done or said, and the bench marks they have made in their lives. I use this blog as almost a record book for me kids.
So with all that to say, I am going to keep up with it! I changed the look of the blog up a little too. I am going to make some changes this year in my journaling too. For those of you whom I don't talk to often enough (believe me there are A LOT of you), I want you to be able to use my blog to see how not only what Loveall family is doing, but how the Loveall family is feeling too. Most of you don't know (other than my mom), what a hard year 2010 was for us. I will not go into it in to much detail, but moving, having a baby, getting ordained (Matt that is) and planting a church was hard on our family this year. We are so thankful for everything we went through and for all the Lord blessed us with in 2010, but it was a hard year on our family. I hope to share more of those struggles (and JOYS too) with you all.
The reason for all of this change is so you can PRAY! I know I do have some blog readers out there that would be praying for me, if I asked (Thank you, Aunt Terri). I am a pastor's wife and there are people I try to remember to pray for all day long. But I never ask for anyone to pray for me or our family. So I am asking my bloggers to pray; pray for me as a mom & wife, pray for my husband as a dad, husband & pastor; as he now tries to grow the church he recently planted, and pray for my kids as they are stuck with us and the life we are leading them in.
I will still update you on my two wonderful children, but I am going to be more 'real' with you all too. No, I will not throw my life up on you everytime you visit, but there will be times I just ask for prayer! Thanks in advanced for those of you who do read this blog and who will pray, we (all the Lovealls) appreciate it!
Stay tuned I have some recent pics of the kids I am going to post soon!
