Summer is over

Work. Prayer. As with all of life, it is a rhythm: tension, release; tension, release. Work, discipline, obedience; pull the bow string taut, and then let go. But it must be done daily.

-Madeleine L’Engle

We’ve visited Hawaii & family in the East which equals 4 plane trips. We have enjoyed Daddy’s week off, 2 separate family visits and swim
camp. And now summer is fading.

I am finishing up a few reads before I begin hitting the books designated for my 9 week yoga course.

And the quote above, draws a mental image on what these next few months hold.

I am eager to begin these new adventures. Homeschooling at least 2 kids, taking a 15 hour per week yoga certification course, volunteering at a women’s shelter, learning a foreign language, planning and packing up for the future travels, saying goodbye to friends here and maintaining some sanity in the midst.

It’s a given. I’ll make some mistakes.

And as God created my body to work 6 days and rest 1 day, so I long and relish the ebb & flow of work.

In the past few months, I have clearly noticed my reliance and time spent with God directly affects my outlook and passion for my duties.

And so I pray for discipline in my devotion to Christ, to steadfastness during life’s trials, to living out the only Hope and laughing during this period of time.
