We had a very nice almost normal Sunday day of rest today - the first in awhile and probably the last for a long time. ☺ I had a great quiet time this morning, and then got up and fixed pancakes for everyone for breakfast. We had a fun time at breakfast together, and then enjoyed 'little church'. Then tonight we had 'blessings' and talked more as a family about our fears and apprehensions about our upcoming trip. Tim encouraged us all to really be praying for each other and then Tim and I prayed over the kids. I just love our Sundays.
I also feel very blessed about our Saturday night last night. We were honored to have Eric and Jennifer Garcia of AM/FM (Association of Marriage and Family Ministries) over to our house after they spoke at our Saturday night services at our church. They are such an awesome couple who God is using to pool all these Christian Marriage & Family ministries out there together. They just want to be a resource to help Marriage and Family ministries succeed in whatever God has called them to do. How about that? A ministry dedicated to helping other ministries and not just propping up their own agenda. Wow! They keep asking us what they can do for us - is that incredible or what? We don't even know enough to know what to ask for! ☺ So after talking and praying together they are going to put us into contact with 3 other family/marriage ministries they believe could help us crystalize and better define our calling. All 3 of them just happen to be on the way of our itinerary during the first 3 months of our trip, so we believe hooking up face to face with them may be in the future, too.
Wow - this is getting to be a book! I guess I'd better sign off. Hope everyone reading this had a great weekend!
