“For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways,”
declares the Lord,
“As the heavens are higher than the earth.
So are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts.”
I know I’ve been a bit sporadic in my blogging lately.
Going into the summer I had grand plans of writing every morning here on the blog, fun activities for the kids, lots of reading, lots of cooking & lots of resting. I had goals personally & with my ministry. As much as I wanted to be successful with my goals my prayer was that my life this summer would line up with God’s plans.
As I’ve spent time in His Word each morning I’ve found His plans for my time were not always what I envisioned.
One thing I have found consistent is spending time with my kids & husband. Where I thought I needed to spend time focused on my blog, God said your ministry this summer is with your family.
And boy has that ministry been fun – days spent by the pool, running around on the beach, snuggled on the couch reading with my daughter, throwing the baseball with my son, planning & praying over a new ministry opportunity with my husband. This summer my family & I have built memories & bonds that were built & planned by God.
Memories and bonds built and planned by God exceed our human expectations.
This coming school year will look totally different for my family as we change schools. And while the changes are exciting they hold a bit of nervousness & anxiety. My prayer is that this summer of family time will prepare us for the changes that are to come.
So if I continue to be a bit sporadic with my postings please bear with me. I promise once school starts up I will be here more often.
Please know that although I may not be posting as often, there is still a lot going on behind the scenes of The Calm of His Presence. God is leading me in some wonderful new directions. I can’t wait to tell you more about it in the coming months.
So my sweet bloggy friends, I pray that God is building memories & bonds for you and your family that exceed your expectations.
In His Calm,
