Thanksgiving 2010

This year we were not planning on coming back for Thanksgiving. However because we needed to finish up some work on the house, we made an impromptu visit home. It was wonderful to get to see everyone again.

A small gathering of Thanksgiving survivors on the side of the road!

Back from the Dead

It has been five weeks since my last post. This was not because I has nothing to say. I switched my internet and could no longer access blogger. So now I have switched back and all is right in the world again.

A lot has happened in five weeks. I have been continuing to learn to put my trust in God. In a manner of ways you could say that things are just not working out for us right now. At least from our perspective. Several options we thought we had have fallen through.

However I know that the Word of God says that "All things work together for good for those who love God and are called according to His purpose." This is my verse right now. I know God is working things together for my own good from His perspective not mine.

As I have been meditating this verse, I have been asking myself, do I show my love for God daily. How am I actively doing that? I know that I am called according to His purpose, but am I embracing it, fulfilling it?

I know I want to be. I believe God is showing me how to and giving me opportunities to grow in Him.

Right now life is a little uncertain and a little uncomfortable. But I know that God has it all in His hands, and things are going to work out according to His plan and purpose!
