I am so sick of rain! I have decided that we now live in Ida-gon instead of Idaho. HA. I suppose I need to be thankful for it, and I am thankful for the water. But a little sun would be okay too! I do thank God for strength lately to not be too depressed with all the gray skies and all of the tasks to get ready for Indonesia, which can seem overwhelming. I go back and forth from being overwhelmed to being really excited. I am definitely missing Bible Study, but enjoying reading a couple of books, which I don't make time to do when I am in Bible Study. I would highly recommend them. One is "His Princess, Love Letters from your King" by Sheri Rose Shepherd, which is written like daily letters from God, based on Scripture. For anyone who is really touched by written letters, it seems to take God's truths and put them in a format that speaks to the heart. My friend also gave me the book "Crazy Love" by Francis Chan. It's really good, too. I'm not too far into that yet. The Word God seems to be speaking to me lately is to "come away and get some rest" (Mark 6:31, my paraphrase). I think that's important, with everything there is to do. I can feel myself focusing on all the details, so I have to remember to just stop sometimes and be with my King. I am also really enjoying Kari Jobe's Album, called Kari Jobe, I think. She's got some awesome worship stuff on there!
Well, as for the practical stuff, I'm in the throes of ordering homeschool curriculum for C.J.. Never thought I'd be doing that, but I'm kind of excited to give it a try. It's a little overwhelming since I've never done it before. We have some great resources here in Idaho, so I've been talking to several friends and getting advice. Hopefully I can have that ordered today. We still don't have a final date to go, but it should be the end of June. Hopefully we can order tickets soon.
PRAYER POINTS: Thanks so much everyone who is praying! Please pray for wisdom for the homeschool curriculum, and pray for Dave as he is going to Kansas soon for a week of Caravan training. Thank you!
