As our fall trip approaches, it’s time to get back into practicing music and preparing for the trip. So far, we have five weekends filled, and the sixth is pending due to a church scheduling conflict. We still have openings for single evening conferences in between.
Yesterday, we went to an assisted living home in town to share through music and testimony. It was a blessing! Afterward one man who is celebrating his 50th wedding anniversary today, told me that it was the best music he had ever heard in his life! Another lady, after hearing Mom had homeschooled eight children said, “And she’s still alive?!!” Dad thought that was pretty funny when she told him that. It’s not uncommon for people to say about a homeschool mom, “She must have so much patience!” or “I could never do it!” The beauty of following the Lord’s leading is how He equips those He calls. We suspect most don’t have “the patience” when they start, but part of the plan is developing a mom’s heart in the process.
Scripture says: “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me” (Philippians 4:13) and 1 Corinthians 1:27: “But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty.”
And, yes, I was there–just taking pictures, not in them :-).
