Time and Change

I realized that I promised to post in mid-September and here it is, nearly October. Time gets away.

I completed my three-day backpacking trip of the Grand Canyon. I'm glad to say I felt adequately prepared and enjoyed it very much. Here are a few pics.

Meanwhile, assignments have been raining down on me like manna from heaven.

God's been working in my life in other ways, too. Out of the blue, He delivered us a couple who want to lease our home starting Dec. 1.

Of course, that means we have to somehow get our final inspection up at the land and move all of our stuff by then. But that's okay!!

It wasn't in our time, but then it usually isn't. I've learned to accept God's gifts with gratitude and Thanksgiving. Too many things had to fall into place for this to happen for me to believe this is coincidence. One thing after another fell into place, just like Dominos.

So now, my husband and I are trying to sort through years of accumulation in a too-big house. What goes into the garage sale. What goes on Craig's List. What goes into a box.

And, of course, the deadlines.


I will need you all more than ever in just a couple short months. But for now, I need to focus on the priorities God has set before me.

Thanks to all of you who have stopped by to let me know you're still thinking of me. I hope to visit soon. Meanwhile, be well and take care.
