Home. Life. Family. Responsibilities.
All rolled into one.
Life has been busy ~
Isn't it like this for everyone?
We need to work hard at slowing it all down.
Taking it all in.
And being faithful in the mundane and everyday
things of life and living.
We've got some changes coming.
It's all good, but these things require time to implement.
Extra time...where do we find that?
That's another post for another day.
On this day, I reflect.
Look back on these first weeks of Summer,
and I give thanks.
God is Good. Always.
It's been busy.
The older two have been continuing on with some school.
Austin completed two exams at the end of June,
and he has been dog-walking and teaching violin.
Calvin has some lawn-cutting jobs and helps out with paper route.
Fraser and Emma keep up with their paper route duties
as well as their home responsibilities.
Outdoor adventures have begun in earnest.
The sunny days were barely here before the tent
was set up and slept in!
Howie and I were even able to go on a date.
We took a round-trip sail on the ferry
and enjoyed dinner with a spectacular view ~
Thank you SO much...it was a real treat!
(You know who you are)!! XO
The days fly by.
There is so much to do.
My struggle is with scaling back
and enjoying the moment.
Living IN the moment and cherishing
life as it happens.
Entering into the busy-ness of it all
and not fretting about getting it all done!
In the midst of upheaval.
And at times, mess.
It's not easy to do.
But, it is necessary.
By God's Grace it can be done.
Moment by moment.
One step at a time.
What we are called to do is not impossible.
HE is Faithful to give the wisdom to
discern what those necessary things are!
What a blessing!!
Grace upon grace to you all!
In HIS Love,
