We’ve got a pretty seriously injured Papa on the homestead, so we’re taking a break from posts for a bit to focus on helping him heal up. By God’s grace, the situation was not nearly as bad as it could have been. My husband is feeling well so far, and is in good spirits.
We’ve decided to keep the details private amongst family, but we’d appreciate all your prayers and encouragement during the healing process.
With everything else there is to be done, and the kiddos, and picking up the slack, we probably won’t have time for much blogging for a bit. So, we’re taking a short break from our site to focus on what truly is central- God’s mercy and grace, and our family’s well-being.
For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is going to be revealed to us… And not only that, but we ourselves who have the Spirit as the firstfruits — we also groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for adoption, the redemption of our bodies. Now in this hope we were saved, yet hope that is seen is not hope, because who hopes for what he sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with patience. In the same way the Spirit also joins to help in our weakness, because we do not know what to pray for as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with unspoken groanings. And He who searches the hearts knows the Spirit’s mind-set, because He intercedes for the saints according to the will of God. We know that all things work together for the good of those who love God: those who are called according to His purpose.
