Sorry for the long delay in updating....

Hey friends...sorry for the long delay in updating the blog...It has been a new season for the Altic's...an awesome time but just a new time of learning to do life as four instead of three...I wanted to just update you from my perspective how things have been and where my heart is now...I think todays devotional out of Hebrews sums up where I am at....Hebrews 11:8,10 says " By FAITH Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance obeyed and went even though he did not know where he was going....for he was looking forward to the city with foundations, whose architect and builder was God." What this said to me today was that by faith I am learning to be a mom of 2 boys and a wife to my wonderful husband...Jerrell and I have never been here before but by faith we want to live in this new season...that even though we don't know what we are doing we are going to walk by faith in it...knowing that the goal for us is that the foundations of our home would be built by God...that is our heart with all that has been going on...through late nights and poopie diapers...lots of nursing and lots of washing...that God would somehow in the midst of all of it build our home to be the home he wants for Jerrell and I and for the boys...this scripture brought me hope today and I wanted to share it...I want to live by faith not by fear and control...

On a lighter note...these are some fun pictures that we took this weekend...Jerrell's 81 year old grandma came to visit...she is amazing...
