Coming and Going

One daughter is in California now, patiently awaiting her household belongings so that an empty house can be transformed into their new home. Sounds like a fun adventure to me! She has a unknown neighborhood to explore, interesting stores to browse, friends to make, and pleasant weather to enjoy. But most of all, she will discover God in California as well as New York. That's always a good thing.

Another daughter is in Germany. Her tenure there is coming to an end in a couple of months. Bet that feels strange to her. Isn't time a funny thing? It's so long and large when it's ahead, so short and small when behind. Soon she will return home; everyone here is full of excited anticipation! She is a dear one - if you know her you would agree.

Daughter number two has been staying here for close to three weeks now, with three little ones in tow as well. What a wonderful few weeks it has been. I'm hoping it can become a tradition. But today they head back around the corner, ready to inhabit the little yellow house once again. Why? The Daddy of that young family returns from Spain where he has been busily leading a small team from our church in ministry there. They have met with great success, bringing a blessing to the church in that nation.

With that team's return, I will regain two daughters as well. As part of that small team, they sang, danced, played instruments, shared testimonies, and even did TV interviews on their homeschool experience. Amazing - God is eager to use His people if we simply surrender our all - no matter how small that all may seem, to quote a song I once sang.

Two daughters of Paco Gonzales, a Spanish friend involved in ministry, will accompany my daughters. They are taking a month-long holiday here in America. Who would have thought a visit to the North Country could have such appeal? We will be glad to "adopt" them for the time!

So this season of my life continues. Change, movement, flexibility, availability. This are necessary commodities as I mother children who are adults, young adults, and young boys. It's interesting, there is no doubt about that.

In the meantime, I will weed my garden and learn my lines for an upcoming show. (I'm playing Mrs. Paroo in the CPS production of Music Man. It is tons of fun, I must say!)

Now that I know the latest scoop, I will be interceding for dear team's return journey even more.
