Practical stuff like food right now..

So, we arrived home yesterday to a warm house! I spared you the drama of our broken furnace. And I’m still going to spare you the details, but the Lord provided a new furnace AND the funds to cover it.

So, you never know what you are going to encounter, or how the Lord is going to fix it. The important thing to know is that he will do what it takes to take care of us, because he loves us.

So, while Will was inspecting the new furnace (it was installed while we were gone), I had to call my friend, Kathy, and find out all of the nitty gritty of what went on with the kids. All of our kids went up to Wisconsin to be with the Morell family while Will and I went to Moody. As you can imagine, I was a typical mother and had to know every detail of everything that went on. It gives me no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in truth.. in my presence as well as out of my presence.

About a half hour after we arrived, we were reunited with our five children. Our oldest son, Jamie, drove everyone home safely. It was all hugs and kisses for a long time!! My arms were empty for five days! My youngest, Emily, was back to living under my armpit again. And we were both happy.

So, now we are back to practical things like laundry, grocery shopping, fixing meals, and robotics. Homeschooling starts again on Tuesday. My new pilates schedule starts this week. I am adding two classes to my schedule. Also, I am teaching a study skills class at Hallstrom.

Yes, it’s a busy life, but a good one. I have more to say about what I learned in my counseling class, but I need time to process everything. Let’s just say this: Moody Bible College is awesome!! (At least the graduate level classes) For us, it was the perfect mix of Bible knowledge and practical helps that are going to be very useful for serving in a counseling ministry.

So, here’s the menu for the week. Are you proud of me?

Saturday: turkey/ barbecue wraps

Sunday: Beef stroganoff

Monday: beans and rice

Tuesday: lunch: baked potatoes with fixings/Dinner: crockpot soup

Wednesday: spaghetti

Thursday: chicken packets
