Sometimes, we rush into change and sometimes we don't understand why we have to drastically alter our course but we do it anyway with great fear asking for God to chart our future... The one who sees our future where these things will be past, we will be refined by His fire,and God will be glorified for holding us up and wrapping his loving arms around us.
crying out to The Lord
for answers to difficult questions....
What seemed for so long ---deafening silence to our pleas...the flood gates of answered prayers. A place to start the healing...a safe place....
Are we strong enough? Ann Voscap says you've got to look for the glory and hunt for the grace and seize the beauty in ugly and laugh brave and defiant in the dark and you can lose everything but nothing can steal Jesus and He is enough and you have to live....you have to live...live with an outstretched hand reaching towards the Savior and live the life He has put before you.
He says he has already equipped us for what we are walking through...again digging deep to find it in ourselves. God meeting us where we are...on our knees before His throne. Our strength giving us the courage to go on...the courage to take the next step despite the not knowing....the courage and trusting and surrender of self...knowing we will find healing for our children, ourselves and our family.
Lord, we are yours....trusting you, walking with you, loving you...every step if the way.

It's been a long couple of months with a lot of littles struggling. It's been a long time since we had a good day ...a really good day. But...today was just what we needed...a gift...a sweet treasure to restore our souls.
It included hard work- hauling rocks and backfill by hand to build rock walls in our hill for our garden. Everyone pitched in a bit and the work was good. We spent lots of silly moments with our horses too! We even had a bit of energy to work them when we were done. Thank you Lord for hard work and sweet family time!
