A New Chapter ~

Thank you ~ There is always a time when a new chapter in life is recognized. Such is our circumstance today. The neighborhood we live in is full of young couples with children. Shasta, our white lab, has been our good will ambassador. The days are thoughtful with plenty to do. At times our Father in heaven knows when it is time to rest. Kathy is very busy with her new occupation as a business analyst. It is a supervisory role and part of team of people she enjoys working with. I am finishing up my graduate classes at the seminary and hope to be finished in six months. But, believe it or not, this is our time of rest. Kathy is very busy at work and I am always studying. But the "rest" is there as we live moment to moment in fellowship with our Father in heaven. The job is not important. The studying is not important either. It is always about our communion with God. Hearing from Him is premier in all that we do. If anxiety or fretting seeps in it is because we have lost focus. This is not rocket science. God has made it easy; we just refuse to believe it at times. I had talked to an old friend recently. He has been to so many colleges trying to find the right fit for him and wondering what to do with his life. When one is greiving it is extremely difficult to hear God. There is a grieving process. But after that there must be praise to Him. As we praise God, and join in the work He has going, we find direction. I know it sounds simple but let me ask you a question. Are you risking anything in faith trusting God? If not, you must try it. "Without faith it is impossible to please God," the Bible. Kathy and I love you all ~
