i miss these people



So, i'm in Grande Prairie with my big sister - doing the Ladie's Tea at Grace Bible Fellowship in Sexsmith. We are doing 4 nights in a row... one night down, three to go.  i already sold most of the books i brought, so it's a nice feeling to have those go too...
How's it going? 
i don't know. 
Smile. 
But i do pray that God will use these loaves & fishes in some small way to bring dark places to light & to comfort to the hurting. 
i am homesick. 
i'm honestly so glad to be here - and i feel, if nothing else... obedient. 
But i really, really, really miss my people. 
At least i brought a cheerful Charter, and a snuggly, clingy Ephraim to keep me company & to nourish my mama heart. 
i like singing - & i like telling stories... telling others about the Faithful Father... and i love the people who live here.  i'm grateful that He brought me this opportunity.
Even at this funny, hurting juncture in my life.

I bet you're doing amazing :) In your own honesty and need, God will stand in the gap and He will shine through for you. :)

I think my sister in law goes to that church, small world!

I am sure that your ministry to others is blessing them.

I like this fun photo of your 7 jumbled up children and your husband.

I bet you will do wonderfully! I wish I was up there with you. My hubby pastored up there for 2 1/2 yrs as an Assistant Pastor. I LOVED their Christmas teas. I've heard they just keep getting better and better....it also makes me wonder if I"ve ever met you before, in real life. You know A LOT of people I know...

Ha ha...oh yes, there you are right in the middle on the grass! Honestly you could pass as one of the sisters!!

Carol said...

On a second look, that isn't you...O.K. you really could pass for one of the kids! Is that you with Ephraim on top? Or maybe you have the hat on with arms around Neil?
