It is truly amazing to me just how the Lord provides for our EVERY need. As we were preparing to come to Va. I began feeling very anxious about leaving the kids, them going to school ALL day, and how well they would adjust, make friends, etc… I tried to give it over to the Lord every time it came to mind but ,man, it came to mind a lot! Our Lord cares about the details! Our children have made many friends, have loved going to school, have completely enjoyed living “with” their friends, having church in our house, and are thriving! God is good!!!! The only part they have complained about is getting out of bed too earlyJ. I can live with that! We feel the same as they do, everything has been great here, we are really enjoying our time so far. It has been slam packed with things to do, assignments to fulfill, meetings to go to, but the Lord is using this time to work on us and we are extremely grateful. Other than that what can I say… it is beautiful here, we love the people we are with, we love the food that they prepare for us (no grocery shopping or meal planning, yahoo!!).
Judah, I think, has had the hardest time adjusting. We really didn’t expect it to be that rough for him so we have been a little shocked at his behavior, but not totally. He likes school, but doesn’t like to be dropped off… umm yeah, that creates a problem. Please pray for him to begin enjoying it and getting use to it, this will be his life for the next year! He likes his class, his friends, his teacher… he just doesn’t like to be left! So, just keep him in mind please.
Here is a Psalm we looked at this morning… I hope it blesses you!
Make a joyful noise to the Lord,
all the earth!
Serve the Lord with gladness!
Come into His presence with singing!
Know that the Lord, He is God!
It is He who made us, and we are His;
We are His people, and the sheep of His pasture.
Enter Hi gates with thanksgiving
And His courts with praise!
Give thanks to Him;bless his name!
For the Lord is good;
His steadfast love endures forever,
And His faithfulness to all generations.
*Judah has, since I wrote this post about 6 weeks ago, grown to LOVE school:-). The Lord is good...
