The Winds of Change

There is going to be some modifications around here so don’t be surprised if you come back for a visit and bump into a coffee table that wasn’t there before. This spring has brought a need to air out the stale and welcome freshness. I’m throwing open the shutters and inviting the wind to blow. Things are changing.

I am working on a new look for staceyweeks.wordpress.com. This look will include a larger font for easier reading and tighter title and tag line.

I want this blog to reflect what God is doing in my heart – a spring cleaning of sorts. Don’t worry, the topics I write about will be much the same. I believe that God is here in the mundane moments of my day with something to teach me. I will continue to share what I learn through my kids, my job, my prayer times, and in life.

For example, just yesterday, Kate and I were discussing the benefits of rest and change. We discussed taking time off from the chaos and looking at things in a new way. She asked if I needed a rest from teaching Sunday school since this is the first year she can remember that I failed to teach a class.

I explained that I was not teaching now because Nick needs me on Sunday mornings. There is currently no class for the nursery children. But, when Nick starts his class next year freeing me up again, I may extend my teaching break and attend the adult Sunday school class for the first time in years.

She was shocked. “Why do you need to go to Sunday school? You already know all about God.”

That lead us into a wonderful conversation. We discussed how we never stop learning about God. Knowing we can never figure Him out is the beginning of really understanding His greatness.

This conversation is one of many possible examples of how God uses ordinary moments with my kids to bring glorify to Himself.

I hope you’ll continue to journey with me as the blog evolves and benefits from a mini makeover. When the new look is unveiled, post your thoughts, and feel free to suggest blog titles and tag lines. I’m a bit stumped on how to sum up my writing style and topics.

Until next time,

S

    I look forward to your new look! Your blogs have blessed me so much. Thanks for sharing your heart. For myself, I think you have been a major influence ‘long distance’in pursuing my own dream of writing and illustrating. Thank you, Stacey.

    Stacey,
    You are such an encouragement to anyone who reads about the wonderful busy-ness of your family life. You attack each day with vigor, and take full advantage of every teaching moment. God is blessing you in all that you do, and I don’t think “mundane” is a fitting word in your home. You are living life, and we are so excited to be a part of it.
