Still running for the cheese (or why this blog still exists)

As my regular readers can tell, this has been a dry year for me. Just look at the number of posts this year vs. 2008! Awhile back, I had considered either shutting down the Maze, or starting a new blog that would more accurately reflect where I am in life now. Truth be told, sometimes I come here, look around, and feel distinctly hypocrytical about the things I want to write. I'm sure I'm not the only one to ever be in that kind of place.
As the time in between posts has grown longer, I came to realize something. Without the past years' material, where I am now makes very little sense. What good is the destination without the journey? As Christians, so much of the best stuff that happens to us is in the times God is molding us to His image. To throw away the evidence of that process would somehow cheapen the result, I think.
So, here we are, dear friends. I think my little mousie may just have rounded a corner finally. Some things will change around here to reflect the changes in my heart. And you know what? That's ok. As much as I typically rage against anything changed in my life, I'm learning to accept the God-given ones. My prayer is that some of you may be encouraged by what you read here. Hey, you may even be challenged. And of course, if you know me, then you know you always stand a good chance of being offended too. Not intentionally, to be sure! Just know that what you find as you wander this Maze with me may surprise you as much as it does me.

All that to say this:

It's been a long time, huh?

I must say that I'm somewhat ashamed of myself for letting this blog go so very long without being updated. *totally embarrassed*
A lot has happened this year. In March, we found out that God had chosen to bless us with our 3rd child. I'm due November 6th, but will be having a planned c-section before then.
So much has changed in my heart after going through this trial of secondary infertility. In the coming weeks and months, I hope to share with you all some of the things God has taught me.
We've settled into a church that has helped us grow in the Lord. What an amazing thing to find!
Even though it's been quite awhile, I'm confident that I will break through this darn writer's block. Who knows, maybe you'll even get sick of hearing from me!

Til next squeak,
