Oh dear me, has it really been this long!
Our lives have changed in so many seemingly small ways, that any spare time is nearly non-existent, but then again it does keep me out of trouble!
Magoo is at CHC 4 full days a week, though we all love "at home schooling Fridays" and make that a fun filled day. With this plus piano and all the usual, our week seems to be filling up even more then I thought possible. So even though the weekly schedule was thrown out last entry, I think it will have to be reworked and put back on the cabinet.
Part of the new busy-ness is that we have come in a round about way to "adopt" some members into our family. No they do not live with us, but our lives are becoming more and more intertwined as we help each other down that long and narrow way to life eternal. We believe that this is a very basic Biblical teaching, taking care of the widows (physical and/or spiritual), fatherless & the poor....especially those in the ecclesia. It is such a joy to send the children to collect chairs to fill the dining room table, to place 10 instead of 5 place settings on special evenings, and to make it a habit of creating a special time for others on a night set apart. We have chosen to set apart Friday evenings (every second one because of little disciples on the other weeks) and join together in a meal, Bible readings and wonderful fellowship.
"Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, to visit the fatherless and the widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world." James 1:27
It reminds me a bit of the Sabbath, they were instructed to stop doing their own work, and to do God's work.
Well we have come to a decision about the commute to school, move. Yep, we are looking at moving closer to D's work and CHC. This will be such a blessing and allow us to be even more available for help in both the ecclesia and the school, something we'd really like to be able to do.
Isn't it wonderful to be so busy in the Truth! After all it isn't simply a Sunday morning religion but a sincere way of life!
But is it understood that way?
If a certain dear sister is reading this, we can't wait to see you! Counting down the days! and if you both would like to spend Friday here as I'm assuming you would like to be around Saturday...we would love to open our home to you.
Well I suppose these ramblings will do for a post. I really must sit down and get a schedule re done....again. ;-)
