Sonship

So, we have had a busy week of check ups and school and such. Lillian has grown two and a half inches in the last year. In the last forty eight hours, it seems that one random slightly stressful thing has happened after another. I think the evil one truly does not like that we are going to Sonship this week. Sonship is a week of intensive training learning God's delight in us as His sons and daughters, as well as, examining our own sin. (I'm sure many of you could give a better explanation.) Anyway, Peter's work is sending the two of us to Ashville, NC for the week. We are excited and scared of what will happen. We would covet your prayers for us this week that God would do real work in our hearts. Please also pray that we get out of here. We woke up this morning to Lillian not feeling too great. I replied, "Of course, she doesn't." I am acutely aware that I am NOT God and I can not control things and I have to trust that He will take care of my children, my clients, my home and my heart. So, pray! We need it. My Aunt Barbara will be playing Melanie this week and staying with the kids. Help her out if you see her and introduce yourself.

On a lighter note, it feels like Fall and we had a fire in the wood stove last night. I woke up half way through the night HOT. It was so delightful and wonderful and cozy and smells Oh so good. Okay, I'm out to pack up. Talk to you next week.

Heard Aunt Barbara was coming that way-did not realize she was going to be playing Super Mom. She is truly a "Gem"!
