It has been a lifetime since I've blogged at The Times. Spiritually speaking, I have climbed a few mountains, nearly drowned in deep watery pits, burned hot and long in a fire. Just when I thought I was lost forever in a dense jungle, the Lord "leadeth me beside the still waters and maketh me to lie down in green pastures."
I am so glad that I don't "run the race that is set before me" alone. He walks with me and talks with me along life's narrow way.
The pain of the last few weeks has been deep. But, the result has been real change in me and my relationship with my Lord. He gives us beauty for ashes and the oil of joy for mourning. I'm sorry I can't share with you more specifically all that I have been going through. It will probably come out in drips here and there throughout the future Times. Surely though, and only because of our loving Lord Jesus, I can say confidently,
"It is good for me that I have been afflicted; that I might learn thy statutes." Psalm 119:71
What's going on now?
Back to school doing our Math, Reading, Writing, and Music
Children are busy memorizing scripture. When they have reached their goal, then they get to take lessons.
Noah wants to take Karate, Naomi wants to take Horseback riding, and Sophia is undecided. She wants to learn everything.
I have started cooking again. I'm sure the family is happy about that. Went grocery shopping the other day and thought, "Guess I should do something with all this food!"
I started seeing a new chiropractor using the Pettibon system. Interesting. I'll let you know about any progress.
Fall is coming. I guess it's here already. I'm not looking forward to it and yet it is a season I love. I think I don't want it to come because it is such a family time and with family comes SO much. A heavy much.
Biscuit (our chicken) is still alive and kicking and being spoiled with fresh veggies and tid bits from our table. We, in turn, thank her for her fresh egg every morning.
Mr. Santos continues to work hard. He is doing much better from his injuries earlier this year.
I am at the library. We took internet out of the house for a while. It has been a different life without it. I don't know if it is good or bad. Anyways, the timer is about to go off so I can let someone else use the computer. I'm off! "See" you again soon. Leave me a comment. I miss you all!
