Gone so long?
Sorry about the lack of posts lately! As usual we think our life will slow down for that deep breath but it just hasn't happened. Our "parternship development boss" or coach from Wycliffe actually gave us an assignment to take some time to slow down and recupe as a family but we have given that one a big FAIL. But we have enjoyed ourselves in the midst of being on the go.
We took a trip to Spokane to see one of our best friend(s)' new baby and that was a lot of fun. We didn't see a lot of people since it was last minute, but Daniel was able to see the progress Moody Aviation has made to their program since he attended and catch up with some of his old peeps so that was fun. And we stayed with our ever gracious college pastor's wife, who is also a lovely friend and was my Matron of Honor. Very worthwhile trip.
Tomorrow we are sharing about Wycliffe and our plans with them in the Sunday Morning service at Wenatchee Valley Baptist. The church has been through some very difficult times recently but God has been moving so powerfully there and in my family recently that I can only be amazed at His work despite trials.
Daniel and I love to listen to music from Sovereign Grace Ministries and one of my favorites is on Come Weary Saints. Every Day is one of my favorites and some of the lyrics are "Thank you for the trials, for the fire, for the pain. Thank you for the strength, knowing you have ordained, everyday... you are with me. In my uncertainty your grace is all I need..."
It hits the heart of what we've been needing to hear when nothing is certain but God Himself. I am continually amazed at how God uses trials for His good (Rom 8:28) even when we can't see it.
