I've missed blogging!/ Wait for the Lord!

Hello to all my friends in blog world. Our family has been so super busy lately that I have not been able to update or post any new news. The start up of school and fall activities has been nuts. Yesterday little J and I elected to be the "driver" for the afternoon to give dad a break, and we were in that big green van from 2:15-5:00. He was worn out for sure. Our fall activities run the full gamut from ballet to work to drama to you name it, we are doing it.

I desire for the kids to have lots of experiences in life and get a full heap of fun and learning all together. I love that our school offers a lot they can soak in throughout their day, but in the afternoons even with 1-2 activities per child. Well. . you do the math.

Since life has been so busy, our family verse for the past week or so has been Psalm 27:14 "Wait for the Lord; Be strong and take heart, And wait for the Lord." J was explaining to the kids last week that not only does that mean to have patience while God is teaching us lessons or life gets hard, but to TRUST. In The Message it reads like this. "Stay with God. Take heart. Don't quit. I'll say it again, Stay with God." In other words, you crazy football fans, stay on God's team. Staying in that safe place with Him makes the journey so much easier. I was telling a friend just yesterday, I am glad I am not the one who has to make the wise decisions for my life everyday. Let me explain: God's omnipotent wisdom is to my gain. My wisdom : would not get me through this life! I am staying with and trusting God for my strength and support!

So. . . these days, we are waiting, trusting, and staying with God to help us muddle through. I promise one day I will give more updates on our fun times we are enjoying.
