We continue to be so grateful for your encouragement during this “season” of our lives. Do you realize how much the relationships that we’ve made through this blog are making a significant impact in our lives? Thank you for taking time out of your busy lives to write us a note of encouragement, share a contact name, offer your prayers, and share your experiences.
We took a little break over the weekend (which I need to blog about soon), and then went into full hunting mode, working every waking non-quad intensive hour on following up on leads, sending out resumes, talking to personal contacts…Those of you who have been in our shoes know the routine far too well, I’m sure.
We truly appreciate your prayers more than anything. This is new territory for us as a family, and at times I think the uncertainties have been more challenging than either of us anticipated. I am certain that God will use this in our lives for His purpose! We have much to learn and soak up from His Word. Yesterday, as I was reading Chapter 4 in Crazy Love (Are you reading and loving it?), this verse became so fresh and relevant:
I Timothy 6:17-19 (ESV)
17 As for the rich in this present age, charge them not to be haughty, nor to set their hopes on the uncertainty of riches, but on God, who richly provides us with everything to enjoy. 18 They are to do good, to be rich in good works, to be generous and ready to share, 19 thus storing up treasure for themselves as a good foundation for the future, so that they may take hold of that which is truly life.
We have been richly provided for in many ways. Most of us Americans have been blessed beyond measure. Currently we have been blessed with reliable transportation, roofs over our 6 heads, clothing, health insurance that will continue through almost the end of the year, a bank account with a cushion, full bellies, our health, a family who loves us, a supportive church family, faithful blog readers…the list is endless!
Would you join us in praying that our “aim” would be focused on things that matter for eternity, as we face the uncertainties of this present life?
Thank you for continuing to be a blessing in our lives in and out of season!
