Kind of Inbetween........
At times like this it is especially wonderful and a blessing to be a follower of Christ and to know where we belong. We are in between places now with our move waiting for the movers to call and set a date yet enjoying our visit in New York with family, and then of course wondering what God has in store for us in San Diego. This Thursday Adrian and I fly out to California to look for a new home.
Our home school right now takes place in Grandpa's kitchen. Which is the wonderful blessing of homeschooling our children. Their stability comes from God and since we are on the rock the whole world could be moving and we can still function normally and peacefully. I think it is truly an enriching experience that the children can open their books anywhere and sit down and study when it is time for school. Our classroom may constantly be changing but the core of our Christian Home school always stays the same.
I have some photos to share with you of a wonderful heirloom that we leave here at my fathers house. Since it is so special we do not want to risk it being damaged or broken in our frequent moves.
My Grandfather was a carpenter and a very good one. He has made some wonderful pieces of furniture. The piece I would like to share with you is the Doll house that he made for me. It is Cleaning day in the doll house today since it was rather messy, but the dolls are now enjoying a nice clean and organized house thanks to Anna! Most of the furniture is the same furniture that I played with as a child.
Boy those dolls look tired after all that cleaning!!
Matthew 7:24-27 (New International Version)
The Wise and Foolish Builders
"Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash."
