A new routine

Our family has been slowly adjusting to this new season.

Of course we still miss our Anne, but Grandma is so thankful for the help.

(She’s doing very well, and the doctor removed the stitches yesterday. Praise the Lord!)

Jase and I are coming around to a new routine.

Which has included furniture.

I’ve been thankful for the ability to spend many of my early mornings working in the garage.

The rest of the day is spent in homeschooling and housekeeping.

Jase is learning to do more cooking, which has been a blessing.

Through it all, we are learning, stretching, and seeking the Lord.

Because we want to follow His lead and we want to make changes based on Him.

As we continue to walk through the summer, I’m reminded to praise God.

For wherever we are and whatever is occurring, He is worthy of praise.

Psalm 18:3 KJV — I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.

Dear Lord Jesus,

Thank You so much for Your faithfulness! You are worthy of all our praise, all our worship belongs to You. Lord, You are our Savior, the Lamb of God. Thank You! Lord, as we walk in this day, please continue to help us to worship, to remain steadfast in Your ways. Lord, when we are struggling with things, please remind us of Your goodness, Your glory, Your holiness and love. Lord, please set a guard over our eyes, that we might not look on evil. Please set a guard on our hearts and lips that we might harm others with our words. Thank You for Your amazing love, mercy, and grace. I praise Your holy name, Jesus! Amen.

Following the Son


Following Jesus,
the Son of God,
is the best decision I ever made.

I have never regretted the choice of being a Christian.

I’ve never wanted to stop walking with Jesus daily, to turn after my own ways.

I wish I could say I’ve always seen the difference, and always chosen to follow Christ, instead of my own desired, but it’s not the case.

Many times, I truly thought I was following the Lord’s leading, while being blinded by my own self-centeredness.

Of course, I rarely spent the effort seeking the Lord’s direction, when I walked after my own wishes.

It has been easy, in times past, to believe I was walking in God’s plan for me when it also fulfilled my wants and what I thought I needed.

After many times, of realizing I had forged ahead, in my own self-will and not in God’s.

I’ve learned to slow down.

Decisions made in haste often reflect me instead of my Lord.

God doesn’t call me to be rash or reckless, but instead to be talking with Him and led by Him.

To do that I must spend time listening, learning, looking in His Word and hearing His voice.

Following the Son means I’m allowing Him to lead.
