Bless Them as They Go!


This morning, bright and early, the family set off on a 10 day trip with a team of visitors. There are 15 of them all together and we've been pretty flat-out in prep for their time. It's been really good and really such a pleasure to host this group of students.

Now I'm looking around as the dust of their departure settles and making a 180 degree turn toward a whole different task. Much as I would have loved to join them on this trip, I am writing toward a deadline of the end of August and I can't actually afford the time.

They will have an amazing adventure, I am certain. They will see and experience and learn and grow so much. May it be beautiful; a lasting blessing in their lives.

Heather, above, blew me a kiss as they pulled out of the drive.

I'll be missing them so much!

Ah, I know that feeling... when the house suddenly empties and quiet falls where laughter and chatter and lots of breathing once filled every crevice.
Praying for you, dear Lisa... for a fruitful time of writing and a blessed season of solitude. Be surrounded by God's embrace <3
