I'm still so far behind that I find significant thoughts arrive one moment only to be lost another. Crazy!

Today will be set aside for curriculum and planning. Yeah, I know. It's late October. That is August's work. Oh, well. Better late than never.

My daughter Brietta and her precious family are in the process of setting up a closing date, which means a moving in date, which means a moving out of my home date. I am excited for them, but this is a reminder that every day brings treasure of its own. Some treasure is harder to realize than other, but the Lord has purpose and richness in all our days. For this season, the jewels are readily seen - I am treasuring this time with a daughter, son-in-law, and two grandchildren. What a rare treat! I am grateful for them and their stay here.

Tomorrow Carina will arrive home to stay for several months. She has a plan for her next step in life, but wanted to take a year to be here at home to really hear from God and be sure of her plans. For this, I am also grateful. Such a wonderful daughter. I know that He will make clear His will for her. If we seek, we find. Period.

My son Jamie works hard as a student at Patrick Henry College, but even so he is finding time to develop relationships with people from his local church as well as participate in different ministries. He is hoping to join the worship team and is already involved in a small group. He regularly arrives early to help set up. He is such a great guy! :) I am so blessed to see him walking in Godly priorities, living as a kingdom minded young man. The pressures of academic demands could easily pull him out of balance, but he is holding on.

Julia returned from her first international guitar competition. She did well, learned alot, and is inspired to press on! She did not make it to the finals but already is making plans for the next competition - a festival in Malibu, Ca. this June. She has to make a DVD for the first round which is due in Feb. So back to the drawing board and practice room she goes! I admire her tenacity and perseverance.

Louissa is in the process of buying a grand piano to replace Danica's. She has a fairly large piano studio (17 students or more) and is busy with planning recitals, choosing new pieces, and making schedules. She is the sweetest girl I know and loves the Lord so dearly. She is a treasure.

The others are weekly growing, becoming young women and men - only for this crew, this time around, I am 50! It's not that I am totally lacking energy, but the demands seem to come from every possible direction - married children, young adults, college student, pre-teens, and elementary age. And toddling grandchildren to boot! Needless to say, this is far from dull and boring! And I love them all with all my heart.

"Lord, help me to keep Your perspective in the midst of my doing. Let me know Your will and Your heart with all the demands that come my way. My lips will ever praise you, Oh God of Heaven. Lead me by Your Holy Spirit, my Teacher, Comforter, Guide, and Friend!"
