I feel like this week we have so many little praises and prayer requests. We can so clearly see the Lord working right now. It is humbling and exciting and scary and all the things.
Allen was able to get the stitches removed from his leg yesterday. The outer layer of skin is still healing, but it is way better than it was last week, praise God.
Hudson’s birthday on Saturday was so low key and nice. We went out for donuts first thing in the morning as a family and you better believe he loved that part of the day!
In the last week, we have had two new families join our partnership team! This puts us at about 82% of our monthly support. It was our goal to be at 80% by the end of January and 85% by the end of February. We are excited to see God doing abundantly more than all we can ask or imagine, like it says in Ephesians 3:20.￼
For whatever reason, I am terrified of homeschooling. There, I admitted it. I have a bachelors degree in elementary education and graduated with honors. I have literally decades of experience teaching in various settings, to different ages, and about lots of topics. But the thought of teaching my own kids feels like too much. I don’t even know where to start, so it feels crippling. So please pray for me. I’m asking God to change my heart and give me a vision for homeschooling my kids.
I’ve also struggled this week with seeing some of our physical belongings dwindle (albeit slowly). Our sweet pup, Oggie, went to her new home a couple weeks ago. And we are sorting through our other belongings bit by bit (we have a schedule on our calendar). Christ is worth it all: the extra books, the unused kitchen equipment, the old furniture… We count it all a loss compared to Him. But it’s still hard sometimes.
You can’t tell in the photo below, but our sweet one-year-old boy is sick. Poor Hudson has a cough and runny nose and it just miserable. Pray for good rest for his little body and healing.
God is good. All the time.
Have a great week!
