Progress!

Mark picked me up at work this evening and brought me home.  This is unusual because I have usually been getting a ride home with one of my co-workers named Kat, but she had to work later than me this evening.  Mark had to get back to work after he dropped me off, but first he and I had a look at our back yard.

God’s bounteous gifts

God’s provision for us

We went to my church, Community Friends Church, yesterday.  In the “programmed” Friends meetings, there is a time for open worship.  This is a designated five or ten minute period of silence where people can talk about what God is doing in their lives, ask for prayer, read a passage of scripture, sing, or whatever they feel moved by the Spirit to do.  So I shared about coming to the point of thanking God that we won’t be able to come back to Wagon Trail Campground next year and that my life is in upheaval and I don’t know what He’s doing, but deciding to trust Him.
