It turns out that renovating a new property while maintaining one’s current property, homeschooling, and keeping up with four human beings, can keep one busy and make a body feel pretty tired in the evening. Hence the big gap between posts. So, we will do the usual “pack it all in” approach and hope that I will find my writing rhythm soon! Here is the Cliff notes version of the last 4 (4?? yikes!) months. We’ve had birthdays, sitting around the communion table with dear friends, lots of hard gritty work, restful family trips to the ocean, spring flowers blooming, summer seeds sown, and a whole lot of everyday life.
Renovations on the new property are moving along a bit slowly but will be picking up speed now that summer is approaching. I will try to keep you all updated as I am able. Everyone has been so excited to see what has transpired at the house on the hill so I will try to be better about showing the progress.
My thought for the week:
Do not mistake the well spoken words of another person for the voice of the Holy Spirit. I know that the Lord can use other people to convict our hearts or shed light were light is needed; but I sometimes think that all the voices, all the well crafted words, can become static that drowns out the one voice we should really have our hearts tuned to…. the voice of the Holy Spirit. He is a most steadfast guide, who knows the path our feet should take, ever ready to help, and filled with all wisdom for these confusing times. Trust Him, hear His gentle voice, and walk with the peace of knowing He is with you every step of the way; bringing you in contact with those who need you, and filling you with the strength and wisdom you will need on your journey home.
