September has been quite the month. I’m so sorry that I haven’t dropped in here at all. To be honest, I have been in a bit of a funk, and I don’t want to spread negativity based on my own feelings. Through it all, the Lord has been so good to us, and in a way, has been carrying me through this time.
Oh, things could be much worse, I know. But there have been job worries. My husband was finally given a religious “accomodation” at his job two days ago, with the understanding that it may change at any time based on federal government recommendations. He must be tested weekly. He is no longer allowed to step foot into his office. If encountering a member, he must be six feet away, wear a mask, and a face shield. It seems overdone, and not like much of an accommodation… honestly, it feels discriminatory. He no longer would be able to apply for any job within the office that might be a step up. We are praying about possible next steps, but at least he has a job for now.
Ten of us battled the lovely virus going around this month. We are all well now, praise the Lord. Of course, natural immunity plays no role in my husband’s religious accomodation. Makes perfect sense.
We are set to sell our cabin a week from tomorrow. This has been so difficult for me, and one of the main reasons I have been quiet here. It seems to be the right thing to do given the uncertain times we are living in. I am so sad about it, but do feel peace. We have been busy making repairs, and it is ready to go now. We are under contract for $17,000 over asking price, which is a huge blessing. We will be able to pay off our home mortgage to become 100% debt free again, plus we are looking for land nearby with a water source on it. I am doing my best to remind myself of these huge blessings whenever the sadness comes. I have loved our cabin!
We’ve celebrated three birthdays over the past month, and spent five days at Hilton Head Island. Oh, it was glorious! We stayed in a townhome inside a resort which was so nice. We enjoyed playing in the ocean and looking for birds and alligators. Given the worries of the world, it was a nice reprieve.
I’ve now lost 22 pounds since eating better and exercising on a regular schedule. I feel great! I am five pounds below my original goal, and still have a bit of fat to lose on my midsection. I am ready to be healthy for my family’s benefit, and to honor the Lord with my body.
I guess that is it for now. Let’s not grow weary in doing good, ladies. We have been called to be a blessing to our families.
I hope to drop in again soon. Blessings!
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Messiah. He chose us in the Messiah before the foundation of the world, to be holy and blameless before Him in love. He predestined us for adoption as sons through Messiah Yeshua, in keeping with the good pleasure of His will— to the glorious praise of His grace, with which He favored us through the One He loves!
Ephesians 1:3-6 TLV
