My Dear Reader Friends,
I am humble enough to know that no one other than myself realizes that I haven’t posted anything the entire month of April, however, please accept my apologies for the apparent slacking off on my part. I am beyond excited to share with you some exciting things that have been going on in our lives that have been preventing me from spending time writing blog posts. 🙂
With the changing seasons, I find new and unexpected changes are springing forth for my little family. We are in the negotiation process with lawyer and bank to finally purchase a home of our very own. Hallelujah! Good is God and he has showered us with many things to be thankful for already, but we can definitely feel his hand at work in all of this.
Another big announcement is that I recently discovered that there is an office for the C.S. Lewis Institute located nearby. They offer a Fellows program that is one year-long commitment and focuses on apologetics and discipleship. I have been busy applying to be part of this. Any prayers would be appreciated as I await the decision of whether they will accept me into the program or not.
Fear not, dear readers! I have not disappeared or fallen off the face of the earth. Nor have I become discouraged and given up the idea of writing. As the awesome plans above come together things will begin to be posted on a more regular basis.
Some ideas I have been working on for upcoming posts include:
- my calling and how the C.S. Lewis Institute may be an answer to prayers
- being an only child in a blended family with siblings
- the heavenly unfolding of how we found a house
- a piece on worship inspired by the hymn Gather Us In
- a piece with the working title of “Couseling Sessions” – it hasn’t quite decided how it wants to come together yet, but includes some thoughts on the book of Job, as well as thoughts on not suffering in silence, especially when the storms of life are raging
Only time will tell how all of these events will play out, but I have no doubt at all that God is taking me and my family exactly where he wants us to be. We are listening to his call and ready to go at his command.
Blessings and Shalom!

Blessed are those who trust in the Lord, whose trust is in the Lord. They shall be like a tree planted by the water, sending out its roots by the stream. It shall not fear when heat comes, and its leaves shall stay green; in the year of drought it is not anxious, and it does not cease to bear fruit. (Jeremiah 17: 7-9, NRSV)
