Catch Up Chat

Everything remains pretty much the same around here.

No job for my husband. We’ve been looking and applying. There’s not much available right now.

I’ve been working harder at getting items listed on Etsy and Ebay. Even though I always work at it, I don’t always work at it as hard as I should be.

When there’s no income coming in from my husband, I always feel a huge pressure to do more and more and more. I know partly that is good. We are supposed to work.

But sometimes I think I get carried away in the doing and forget the trusting.

Last night, when James and I came home, the sky twinkled with so many stars. We stopped and watched for awhile. We pointed out the constellations we recognize. (Ok, all we can point out are the dippers….)

I thought again about how awesome God is. In my heart I said, “Ok God. You are so big and yet you look down right here and see us. You see what we need and you know our hearts. I know you will care for us.”

We’re still working toward a new venture for each of us. They are some great ideas, but implementing them takes work and time and I wonder daily what God is going to do or show us.

School continues to go well. I’m surprised how quickly the year flies by. When Spring arrives, I always wonder how such a slow moving school year has gone so quickly!

That’s about all going on around here right now.

Thanks for praying for us and for stopping by. I  appreciate you.

    Lizzie, I’ve been reading here for a while and it’s a blessing to see how God has provided for you all and I’m sure your readers (me included) don’t know the half of it.
