Serendipity

Well, I had my "changing-it-all-around" moment. And it seems the Lord takes care of my feeble mind. Just as I was pondering how and where I wanted us to go, dear friends share this. The most extraordinary and blessed thing about how this comes to me is how it pulls together all the things I was reaching for already, notes I had taken, books I was going to use (in fact, already purchased, just waiting for the "plan"). And even this morning, the very poem I was going to begin the adventure with.

And the Lord is teaching me to let go of things I don't have yet (the things I want, or the things I *think* I need), to be patient and know He will lead me and the children. He is teaching me to make good use of the many wonderful things already in my home. He is teaching me to be creative in new ways.

There are moments in my life when I can feel the Lord sustaining me. Moments when I know the Holy Spirit has blessed me with wisdom not my own. This has been a week full of those moments. And of course, the blessing of Elizabeth and Katherine.
