All About Case Closed

Every single day is an adventure! We never know what the next moment may hold. Sometimes we are enjoying the blessings of perfect fellowship as a loving family. Others we are struggling to make it through the next moment without causing physical damage to one another. One day we are amazing parents, and the next day we wonder why the Lord would ever allow us to even reproduce. There are times that our kids amaze us with how mature they have become. Then there are times we must shake our heads in wonder as we clean up the mess they have created. Yes, we live an adventure every day.
Have you ever fealt overwhelmed by your adventures? Do your adventrues ever make you feel like your life is a battle? Have you ever felt that you are completly alone in your struggles within your home, work, and spiritual life? Have you ever found yourself thinking that everyone else has it all together, and you seem to be the only one that cannot figure it all out? Do you sometimes feel that you are the only one struggling to be the Christian you want to be, because everyone else looks so perfect?
Well, I can tell you that you are not alone! The Case family is struggling right along with you. What we often fail to remember is that everyone else is just pretending to have it all together, just like we try to do. We all struggle.
We invite you to join us every other week for the Case Archives, written by my Beautiful Bride. She lets you know struggles and adventures of the Case household. You will get updates about what we are up to, what our wild and crazy, I mean sweet and precious children are doing. You’ll get to see our cooking adventures, what homeschooling looks like for us, field trips, and in all, you will just get to see us for who we are. If you think you will find a picture perfect family… well, She will burst that bubble of yours soon enough. You will get to see our family is just like yours! Sometimes we are wild and crazy. Other times we are so boring you’ll wonder why you even want to read her updates.
I will warn you that she likes to give newsy updates! So be prepared. She also loves to share pictures! So brace yourself. Understand that she tends to write just like she talks (A little bit Southern). So you had better be ready to deal with that.
Through all of these struggles, through every adventure, there is always one constant. The Lord is always there to teach us through these moments. There is a lesson in every adventure. There is a truth to be gleaned from every blessing and every trial. There is so much we can learn from this adventure we call life - if we are willing to seek out what lessons the Lord has for us.
I would like to personally invite you to follow along every week with our Case Files. There we dive into one of the adventures of the Case family and take a look at one of those little every day adventures and try to see what lesson God has for us. You will find that we don't always learn as quickly as we should. We often make silly mistakes. And sometimes, we really get ourselves into a mess, but that's why everyday is an adventure around the Case household!
We end every adventure with a virtue. I firmly believe that our actions are determied by the virtues the Spirit of God plants within us. We live our lives out of our virtues. It could be that many of our struggles in life are caused because of a lack of virtue. We end every adventure with a simple note as a constant reminder for us to work on the inside before we try to tackle the outside.
We hope that you will join us in in this adventure we call life. Perhaps together we can learn something from these little adventures as well. I hope that it will also help you to learn from your own adventures as well. Perhaps together we can find the truths of God's Word hidden in the adventures of life. I pray that we will end each day with a CASE CLOSED!
