WHAT WE'RE NOT DOING....

Since my last post, Scott has had some explaining to do to friends, relatives and co-workers. Seems everyone has some idea of what my last cryptic post was about.

So, it is time to clear some things up.

  • We are not planning to move.
  • Scott is not planning to switch jobs.
  • Our family is not, I repeat- NOT planning to join the circus.
  • We will not be pursuing martyrdom or a mission trip.

Notice that I say, "not planning" and "not pursuing". If the Lord leads us to do these things, we will. But we are most definitely not setting out to do them.

This really doesn't have anything to do with this post, but here is a link to a story about a wonderful family that we are glad to call friends:

Pondering the Possibilities.....

There have been times in my life when I have been inexplicably driven to action. Last year when we were getting rid of all the clutter in our lives was one of those times. Months before the BIG change, Scott and I both began gathering things around the house to get rid of. We did it compulsively. It started with a couple of things and soon encompassed the entire garage full of junk. On the day of our yardsale, Scott kept on bringing out more stuff that I never thought I would see him let go of. We had no idea what was coming. I am feeling it again...


We have been compulsively cleaning and reorganizing the house. We've been establishing routines that help to maintain order. We've been firm and consistent in disciplining the children. Order is necessary for change to be well received. We expect change. We know that God once again has something for us to do that we never thought we would do. The Lord has poured out blessing after blessing upon our family. We are so very excited about his calling.


Yes, I am being vague. These things should be shared with family before we divulge it on a public blog. At this time, there are so many uncertainties that it would be impossible to put into words what we are expecting.


Oh, and "Roy Rogers" now lives at my house. He has an admirer, too.

Passover Seder

We haven't forgotten about you all, really. We've just been very busy with studying, vacationing, and the Lord's work. We have a quick question...

Do you celebrate Passover? Have you ever?
