The little counter on the right hand side made me smile this morning. Finally it says “two weeks and 6 days”. It seems like yesterday that I put it up there and it said two months! My word, the days are flying by. Can you believe it is almost September? Is it just me, or does it feel like God is speeding up time? We are so enjoying the last days of summer. Fall comes early to the mountains where we live.
My days are full and busy. The new curriculum we are using is CRAZY! I have no idea how we are going to get through it. Already we have received 10 boxes of materials, for just 3 kids! But, I am so thankful that God has provided something that is free in this season of our lives, we will just take it one day at a time. By His grace!
We have so much happening before we leave for China. This coming Saturday we celebrate two precious kids birthdays. Hannah-Claire will be 6 and Cade 4. Yes, they share the same birthday…a very God-ordained thing! School is happening, football is on every night of the week, my dad arrives from South Africa next Friday, I still have so many things to take care of around the house, adoption paperwork is still sitting on my desk waiting to be filled out, I still need buy all the things that we need to take with us to China, birthday parties need to be planned…..phew!
In the midst of it all….peace! Peace that my Father in heaven has gone before me in ALL things. Peace that I do not need to worry about tomorrow, He is already there! Peace that life happens and that God will direct every step that I take this day 🙂
