Talking Across the Fence.
Hey, y'all. In case you didn't know, Denbigh sold three hundred dollars in pie last week and so he headed to Lowe's and bought seven sections of fence. Monday and Wednesday he was working in his new church office. That left him Tuesday to put up the sections he bought. If you know anything about my neighborhood, it's right neighborly. As Denbigh was outside trying to assemble his fence, five neighbors showed up to do the thing you do in the country, talk across it. As you can guess, he only got up half of the fence. That's okay though. Real life is in the interruptions. We are happy to have such warm and friendly (and cantankerous) neighbors.
Denbigh started a new position at a church this week at a church in New Braunfels. He will be leading worship for two services on Sunday mornings and working at the office on Wednesdays. He will still be able to be here to work on the house and minister to (love) whomever the Lord brings us. It will be nice to settle into a church family again.
I have no idea what the future holds, but I am trusting God with it. I am at a stage in life where I want things to be really simple. All I want is to be a good wife, mother, and friend. I'd really like to trade in any other hat I may have. I just want to cultivate warmth here in our home. May it be so. I was talking to God about it the other day and asking Him for things that would allow us to focus all of our resources on the broken. I have been asking God to pay off this ministry house. That would be a miracle to us. The cost is $150,000. Would you pray for this with us? I know that God owns the cattle on a thousand hills and He longs to bless His children.
Please pray for people in ministry. To me, this has been the year I have seen the most devastation among the people of God. Most of the people we see that appear like they have it all together are the most broken and hurt. Pray for those around you. May God be glorified. May you bask in His love.
