I have really been missing, huh?

Most of my followers, friends, and family had probably given up on me writing on my blog again, but I have made a decision that I was happy and content to write on this page and I will do it again. I want to get back to a better connection with myself. Over the last couple of years I somehow lost me in all the chaos that has been my life.... no more! I will take my life back, place it back where it belongs - in the hands of the Father, and seek His purpose for my life. I will choose to be content, and full of joy.

So having said that and since my life is much different in things such as work, schedule and such I will be working on this blog over the next few months.... I plan on still posting about my faith, my day to day life, work, food, and all but I will be posting differently. I want this blog to be a reflection of me and where God is leading me. That being said, I will now give you a bit of the story behind the missing Traci.....

Sometimes in life you find yourself looking in the mirror and thinking "what has happened to the person I thought I was", that is me. I have been asking the mirror me just what happened. And without even thinking about it I answered myself.... I did this. I let things, schedules, and others lead me down the path I now find myself on walking slowly toward destruction. So I have shaken myself and will now start taking back my life, my relationships, and my time. I am tired of who I have let myself become. I will let God transform me daily into the person He wants me to be. I will reach out to others to be a better wife, mother, sister, daughter, and friend. I will schedule my time to be more efficient. I will take back me.

“Whoever desires to love life
    and see good days,
let him keep his tongue from evil
    and his lips from speaking deceit;
11 let him turn away from evil and do good;
    let him seek peace and pursue it.
12 For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous,
    and his ears are open to their prayer. 1Peter 3:10-12
