Days Until

Here is a little countdown for events that we are thoroughly pumped for:

7 days...until the new floors get installed-just one step closer to move in. Speaking of such events there are only --->

12 days...to move in the new house! Complete excitement for this!

45 days...until we host Thanksgiving. We are THRILLED to be able to serve everyone this year plus we've never roasted a turkey so that should be fun.

52 days...until we leave for India. Oh yes indeed! We are headed over yonder to the other side of the globe for a partnership and vision trip with Cru from 10/2-10/14

75 days...until Christmas. Just thought we all needed to know that one.

Despite countdowns and projected days for exciting new events we want to be fully living here and now. Not skipping over what the Lord has for us NOW. I was reading in Psalm 118 this morning and found this verse...

This is the day that the LORD has made;
let us rejoice and be glad in it.
v. 24

This was a solid challenge for me to live and walk with the Lord daily. That my life, joy, plans, and sustenance would be drawn from Him and not from anticipation of exciting events or future plans. I can get very busy planning things up but I want to live in God's timing and obedience to rejoice daily with Him. We want to follow the Sender.

In his heart a man plans his course, but the LORD determines his steps.
Proverbs 16:9

  2. Yes you of course can come see it!! I don't think you want to NOW though because there is tons of dust, huge nails, chunks of wall and staples all over our floor :( Rilyn would want to eat parts of our house.

    On October 22, would you like to come?? Or anytime after that we can set up specifics! We love and miss you guys! And kiss that sweet baby for me and spank her naughty bottom.
